Amazing and Instant Low Carb Fluffy Donuts

0

Description:

The donuts are actually fluffy not like lots of other rock hard paleo cakes. Due to the fluff factor, we think this recipe would also make the most delish cupcakes.

We will also discuss the icing/frosting as well. Yes… Peanut butter frosting.! The donuts would be yummy on their own but with this frosting, everyone will be in a happy place.

We used xylitol in the low carb donut recipe. The xylitol might not be your healthy sweetener preference, there are pros and cons to every sweetener. So if it’s not your thing, just swap to your favorite sweetener! Honey and maple syrup are always deeelish!
