I’m so excited that I made these Specific Carbohydrate Diet Lemon Blueberry Donuts! They are perfect for a quick breakfast and they’re a great snack. Unlike regular donuts they’re low carb and they’re not empty calories.
I just got some silicon donut pans and I love them. they only need a little coconut oil to keep the donuts from sticking.
Though I used a similar recipe to SCD muffins I found with the donut pan they have a slightly different texture. The outside is actually a little crisp like a donut should be. Also, because of course donuts don’t have a middle, they can’t be underdone in the center like muffins sometimes can be.
I absolutely love making SCD donuts and I hope you will too!
