No sugar added cookies that look like donuts and taste like birthday cake!

Ingredients & Directions


  • 1 1⁄2 cups
    almond flour
  • 1⁄2 tsp
    baking powder
  • 1 tsp
    xanthan gum
  • 1⁄2 tsp
    psyllium husk powder, or finely ground flax
  • 1⁄2 cup
    granulated erythritol
  • 1 large egg
  • 5 tbsps
    unsalted butter
  • 2 tsps
  • 1⁄4 tsp
  • LILY'S Birthday Cake White Chocolate Style Bar or LILY'S Cookies and Creme White Chocolate Style Bars to decorate


Equipment Needed 
oven oven
 parchment paper parchment paper
 bowl bowl
 microwave microwave
 cooling rack cooling rack

Heat oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.


Soften the butter then beat with vanilla and sweetener until smooth. Add egg and beat until just combined.


In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, xanthan gum, and psyllium husk. Add to the wet mixture and stir with a spatula until a sticky dough forms. Work the dough into a ball and tightly wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 20 minutes.


Once chilled, roll the dough between two pieces of plastic wrap to about 1/2 inch thickness. Use a round biscuit cutter to cut the cookies, then cut out the center with the end of a piping tip or another tiny round object. Place the donuts and holes on the baking sheet and repeat with remaining dough.


Chill for an additional 5-10 minutes before baking to prevent spreading!


Bake for 10-13 minutes watching very carefully to remove right as the edges begin to brown. For the softest cookie, you don't want to bake too long!


Let cool completely before decorating.


To decorate: melt your chocolate bar in 15-second intervals in the microwave, gently stirring each time.


Dip the cookies face down in the chocolate and shake off excess. Using a spoon, ladle more chocolate over the cookies and add sprinkles if desired. Repeat with donut holes.
