How to prepare Keto Dunkin Donuts French crullers recipe:
1 Before starting the Dunkin’ Donuts recipe, make sure to have a container ready to hold a large-tipped piping bag. Additionally, brush your parchment paper squares with vegetable oil or cooking spray to prevent the dough from sticking.
2 Start by bringing a mixture of water, Almond milk, butter, erythritol sugar, and a pinch of salt to a boil in a saucepan with a thick bottom.
3 Keto dieters can still indulge in their favourite Dunkin Donuts treats with a few modifications. Instead of the traditional flour and sugar mixture, try using almond flour and a sugar substitute like erythritol. Mix the ingredients over medium heat until well incorporated and the dough no longer sticks to the sides of the saucepan.
4 To make the dough, transfer it onto a mixing bowl attached to a hand beater and beat it for 1 to 3 minutes to cool it down briefly.
Start by reducing the mixer to medium speed and adding two eggs to the mix. Beat until everything is well incorporated.
5 Now add the eggs and beat continuously till all five eggs are used. This method will allow the dough to be elastic and can hold a shape.
Preheat olive oil for frying.
6 Pipe a small ring of dough onto a greased parchment paper square, about 1 inch in diameter. Feel free to experiment with different shapes, but keep in mind that the dough will expand when deep-fried.
7 When the oil has reached temperature, carefully place a cruller by holding the paper and sliding it into the hot oil. Do this one at a time.
8 To achieve a crispy and golden cruller, immerse it in hot oil and fry for approximately 3 to 5 minutes. Once one side is cooked, flip it over and fry for an additional few minutes until both sides are evenly browned. Finally, remove the cruller from the oil and place it on a cooling rack or paper towels to drain any excess oil.
For the Honey Glaze:
1 You all need to mix erythritol sugar, honey, and Almond milk until the ingredients form a smooth mixture.
2 Once the crullers are baked and cooled, dip the top of each one into a delicious honey glaze. Be sure to set them on a cooling rack to let any excess glaze drip off before serving.
3 Once the glaze has hardened, the cruller is ready to be served and enjoyed!
4 You can serve it with a side of honey glaze. “Simply drizzle ⅓ cup of the glaze’ over your meal & enjoy the delicious flavour it adds.
