WakeShake Low Carb Cinnamon Doughnut Holes

I hesitate to call these doughnut holes since they are baked instead of fried, but that doesn’t change the fact that they are super tasty and easy to make!

Doughnut Holes

  • 1 scoop WakeShake, cinnamon bun flavor
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour + additional for kneading
  • 2 tablespoons granulated erythritol or other sweetener
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 dash nutmeg (optional)
  • 1 dash salt
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk
  • 3 tablespoons (~42g) butter, cold

Cinnamon "Sugar" Coating

  • 3 tablespoons granulated erythritol or other sweetener
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted


  1. Preheat oven to 375F. Prepare a baking dish by lightly greasing with coconut oil or butter and set aside.
  2. Combine sweetener and cinnamon for the coating in a shallow bowl and set aside.
  3. Sift together dry ingredients for doughnut holes. Using a fork or pastry cutter, cut in cold butter until mixture looks like small "crumbs" and then chill in freezer for ~5 minutes.
  4. Add liquid ingredients and stir gently to combine.
  5. Turn dough onto a surface lightly dusted with ~1T coconut flour and knead gently until no longer sticky to the touch.
  6. Divide dough into 10-12 equal sections (I use a cookie scoop for consistent sizing), and roll them into balls.
  7. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until surface is browned and crisp to the touch.
  8. Dip each ball in melted butter to coat and then roll in the cinnamon/sweetener mixture. Place them in your prepared baking dish about 1" apart.
  9. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the outsides are browned and crisp to the touch. Allow to cool 1-2 minutes before serving. Best enjoyed warm.
