These Cinnamon No-Bake Keto Donut Holes are everything you dream they would be! Not only are they crazy easy to make, but they are sweet, cinnamony, and melt in your mouth.
Cinnamon no-bake vegan and keto donut holes
As many of you know, no-bake treats such as these Keto No-Bake Brownie Bites and Chocolate Fat Bombs are my absolute favorite snacks and desserts!!! They are just so incredibly fast and easy to make and very portable for school lunches.
Many times when my kids get home from school they've already raided the fridge and aren't even hungry by the time I get a snack made!
But since these keto donut holes are made within 5 minutes, they're perfect for after school.
Also, I don't have to wait 15 minutes for them to bake before I know if they're good or not or how the texture turned out.
I'm like an evil scientist with my mixing bowl adding ingredients and tasting and adding... until I get them exactly perfect. Feel free to taste these as you go and adjust them to your liking and sweetness level.
Can I use butter instead of coconut oil?
You can use butter in place of coconut oil. When taste testing them side-by-side, though, my entire family preferred the coconut oil. Surprising right!?!
I thought for sure we would like the butter version better. But the coconut oil donut holes just had a better texture.
The ones made with butter were slightly softer and were lacking that bready texture if that makes any sense. Especially because they're not even baked!
Don't get me wrong, the butter version was good but the coconut oil version had more substance, texture, and they seem to just melt in your mouth more 🙂 Uhm, yeah I'll take that one thank you!!!
I hope you love them as much as we do. Let me know what you think in the comment section below 🙂
- Leftovers can be stored, tightly covered in the fridge for up to one week. They can also be frozen up to 2 months.
- While you can use butter instead of coconut oil, we much better prefer the texture with coconut oil over butter.
- For Paleo, replace the Keto Sweetener with Coconut Palm Sugar. This will give them a slightly more caramel/brown sugar type taste.
- For the keto sweetener, any low-carb granulated sweetener will work. However, erythritol-based sweeteners do leave a slight cooling-like aftertaste. Also, allulose is only 70% as other sweeteners. So if you choose allulose, you may need to add a bit more than the recipe calls for.

Cinnamon No-Bake Keto Donut Holes
- 1 Cup Blanched Almond Flour - super finely ground
- ¼ Cup Keto Granulated Sweetener - see notes below, use coconut palm sugar for Paleo
- 1 pinch Sea Salt
- 1 pinch Ground Nutmeg
- 1 ½ tsp. Ground Cinnamon
- ¼ Cup Coconut Oil - solidified, or slightly softened butter
- 1 Tbsp Almond Butter
- 1 Tbsp. Water
- ½ tsp. Pure Vanilla
- 1 Tbsp. Keto Granulated Sweetener - use coconut palm sugar for paleo
- 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
- In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the almond flour, sweetener, sea salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon.
- Use your hands or 2 forks to work the coconut oil into the dough.
- Then, add the almond butter, vanilla, and water. Mix until dough holds together. Taste the batter and add more sweetener and spices, if desired (keep in mind that they are about to be rolled in a cinnamon/sugar mixture).
- Roll the dough into 10 Tablespoon-sized balls and place them on a large baking sheet covered with parchment paper.
- In a small bowl, combine the topping ingredients.
- Roll each ball in the cinnamon/sugar topping and return to the baking sheet.
- Place in refrigerator to firm up if needed.
- Store covered in refrigerator for up to 1 week.
- Leftovers can be stored, tightly covered in the fridge for up to one week. They can also be frozen for up to 2 months.
- For Paleo, replace the Keto Sweetener with Coconut Palm Sugar.
- For the keto sweetener, any low-carb granulated sweetener will work. However, erythritol-based sweeteners do leave a slight cooling-like aftertaste. I love using a keto brown sweetener because it adds more depth of flavor than the white varieties. However, I also really like xylitol, allulose, or a monk fruit allulose blend. Also, pure allulose is only 70% as sweet as other sweeteners. So if you choose pure allulose, you will need to add a bit more than the recipe calls for.
