Fathead Cinnamon “Sugar” Donuts


I had a crazy craving for donuts today. Stopped at Dunkin for my favorite unsweetened iced tea and the smell of donuts was overwhelming! Time to step up my recipe game!!

I know how versatile fathead dough is… so I decided to use that as a base for these donuts.

I started with the basics – shredded mozzarella cheese, almond flour, and cream cheese… then I added in ground cinnamon and Swerve.  Instead of an egg, I added ground flax seed and water.

Mixed everything together and separated into 6 balls. Shaped each ball into a donut shape and place in my air fryer (350°) for 6 minutes on one side and then 6 on the other.

While still warm,  I rolled each in a dish of Swerve and ground cinnamon.

SO good! As close to real sugared donuts as you can get!

Enjoy! 🍩
