These doughnuts, or muffins depending on how you see them, only have 3 grams of net carbs per serving. These recipes make sticking to carnivore much harder than it needs to be, but I like to branch out every now and then. Beef and butter is delicious, but standard keto offers so many possibilities.

Cinnamon Protein Doughnuts

These are technically more muffins than doughnuts, but don't let that stop you. Plenty of flavour with only 3 grams of net carbs per serving. I use inulin powder in this one, as it's practically zero carbs while adding some firmness to the mixture.

  • Waffle Iron Or Doughnut Tray


  • 1 scoop Vanilla Protein Powder
  • 10 g Inulin Powder
  • 15 g Erithyritol
  • 60 g Cottage Cheese
  • 1 large Egg
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Guar Gum
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1 tbsp Coconut Flakes
  • 1 tbsp Butter


  • Preheat the waffle iron, or the oven to 175. In the meantime, just pile all the ingredients (bar the coconut and butter) in the blender and keep mixing till you get a smooth flowing consistency.
  • Add some of the batter to the tray, leaving some space at the top.
  • As you wait for the batter to bake up, heat the butter in a small bowl and drop in the coconut flakes. When the doughnuts are ready, just dip it into the mixture to coat the top.
  • If you still have some batter remaining, you can go for round two. Except this time you can always mix it up by adding melted dark chocolate for the glaze!
