Apple sauce is a great substitute for oil in baking and works great in cakes, breads, cookies, pancakes and of course these apple donuts. It produces moist baked goods with a fine crumb.
I enjoy creating clean and healthier, preferably refined sugar free desserts and sweet treats, that’s why I made baked applesauce donuts.
I’m also following a low-carb,sugar-free diet and I mostly cook Keto friendly desserts.
There is no flour or refined sugar in these.
They are made with almond meal and low-carb, Keto sweetener. I used Swerve confectioners, but even Organic powdered white sugar will work.
These apple donuts are perfect for breakfast, with a cup of coffee, but also make a great addition to your lunch box. Kid friendly, too!

TIPS FOR MAKING BAKED DONUTS:
Don’t overmix the batter. This will result in donuts that are though and we aim for moist and fluffy donuts.
Have all your ingredients at room temperature.
If the batter appears too thick, you can add 1-2 tbsp almond milk to it.
These flourless apple donuts do stick to the donut pan. Make sure you spray it very generously with cooking spray. Also don’t under bake them. Make sure you let them cool completely in the pan, then loosen up with a knife and very carefully take out of the pan.
These donuts require 15-18 minutes to bake. Toothpick inserted should come out clean.
- 2 eggs large
- ¼ cup Swerve Confectioners Sweetener
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- ⅓ cup North Coast Apple sauce
- ½ tsp Xanthan gum optional
- 1 cup almond flour
- ⅛ tsp salt optional
- ¼ tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- ¼ cup Swerve Confectioners Sweetener
- 3 tbsp heavy cream
- Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl. Add more heavy cream or water to thin the mixture, if necessary.
- Preheat oven to 350 F.
- Mix ingredients together with a wire whisk until just combined. Don’t over mix.
- Spray a 6 slot donut pan with cooking spray (avocado oil or coconut is great low-carb and Keto donuts).
- Fill a piping bag with the batter. Divide mixture between the 6 donut slots.
- Bake for 15 minutes, or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
- Cool completely inside the pan. Carefully remove from the pan. Drizzle the glaze over the donuts.
- Keep in the fridge in an air-tight container for up to 1 week.
