Low-Carb Donuts with Matcha Frosting

Delicious and low-carb donuts with creamy matcha frosting will be perfect for a quick dessert or an afternoon snack. With only 2.3 grams of net carbs per donut, these little treats are a life-saver for all of us following a low-carb lifestyle. Furthermore, they are baked in the oven which makes them super easy and quick to make.

These donuts are a delicious combination of almond flour (which can also be replaced with coconut flour) and psyllium husk powder as the dough base which is nicely seasoned with some ground nutmeg and cinnamon. Adding a pinch of ground ginger is also a good idea to get some little extra flavor.

The final, and probably the most important touch is definitely a creamy matcha frosting made with some powdered erythritol and matcha green tea powder. It’s the earthy tone of matcha that gives these donuts their unique and beautiful flavor you will love. You can also add a teaspoon of vanilla extract to the frosting but that completely depends on your taste.
Store your donuts up to 10 days in a plastic container or freeze up to 2 months. Enjoy!
