Total Fat

Step 1

Pre heat the vegetable oil in the deep fat fryer to 150˚C.

Step 2

In a bowl, mix the ground almonds, MCTprocal® and carbohydrate-free baking powder.

Step 3

Add butter, egg, vanilla essence and sweetener, mix using a spatula until a thick dough consistency.

Step 4

Wet the end of your fingers with water (this stops the mixture sticking to your hands) and shape the dough into a round ball.

Step 5

Gently place into the deep fat fryer, careful not to splash yourself with hot oil.

Step 6

Cook for 3 mins each side until golden brown – they puff up and float, the doughnut may need to be gently pushed down into the oil after about 1 min to help them colour.

Step 7

Line a baking tray with kitchen roll, remove the doughnut from the fryer with a slotted spoon to drain the oil, place on the tray to cool.

Step 8

To fill the doughnuts, make a hole with a small knife along the middle crease line of the doughnut.

Step 9

Fill a piping bag with K.YoTM and pipe into the hole in the doughnut.

Step 10

The doughnut will swell up with K.YoTM and serve.

Top Tip:

The doughnuts are best eaten straight away, but will keep in an airtight tin.
