Intro: Low Carb Vegan Baked Caramel Donuts
This keto vegan salted caramel donut dessert is so amazing! Baked donuts are the best salted low carb treat to satisfy your sweet tooth. I used Walden Farms zero calorie syrup for this one but you could use any similar type of syrup. Another low carb ingredient I used for this recipe is silken tofu. It’s perfect for making vegan sweets.
Walden Farms have a wide variety of zero calorie vegan sauce and syrups. And I’ll tell you the truth right now, they are not all that amazing. I have not tasted every single one though. However the caramel syrup by Walden Farms is actually really delicious. It’s perfect for this low carb donuts recipe. Additionally it’s really thick when it’s properly chilled, which makes is great for dipping fruit and things.
Another cool thing is that you can bake with it. It’s amazing for Keto breakfast. This sugar free donuts recipe is my favorite salted caramel dessert. In fact it’s my favorite way to make baked donuts.

Zero Calorie & Sugar Free Pancake Syrup by Walden Farms is great for that pancake flavor. Make it maple! If you prefer that is. 12 oz bottle costs about $6.
