Recipes   Breakfast     Gluten Free     Keto     Seasonal     Sweets    



½ cup coconut flour

⅓ cup Swerve Granular

2 teaspoons baking powder

2 tsp freshly grated lemon zest

¼ tsp salt

4 large eggs

¼ cup unsalted butter, melted

¼ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice

½ tsp vanilla extract

Water to thin, as needed

Lemon Swerve Granular Topping:

⅓ cup Swerve Granular

1 tbsp freshly grated lemon zest

1 to 2 drops natural yellow food coloring (optional)

2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted



  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF and grease 8 wells of a donut pan very well. If your pan only holds 6 donuts, you may need to work in batches.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the coconut flour, Swerve, baking powder, lemon zest, and salt.
  3. Stir in the eggs, butter, lemon juice, and vanilla extract. If the batter is very thick, stir in water one tablespoon at a time. The batter should be thick but easily scooped into the pan.
  4. Divide the batter among the prepared wells of the pan and bake 15 to 18 minutes, or until the donuts are risen and the tops are just firm to the touch.
  5. Remove and let cool 20 minutes in the pans, then gently loosen and remove to a cooling rack to cool completely.

Lemon Swerve Granular Topping:

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the Swerve and lemon zest. Add food coloring, if using, and stir vigorously to color the sweetener.
  2. Lightly brush the donuts on both sides with the melted butter, then dip into the lemon sugar, pressing to adhere. Return to the cooling rack to allow the lemon coating to stick.
  3. Fluff the lemon sugar with a fork between dipping each donut to lighten it up a bit, as it gets compacted as you press the donuts into it.
