Caramel Coated Keto Donut Holes

Donuts are a BIG deal in our house! We have a couple favorite places in town that we always stop by when we’re in the neighborhood.

However, donuts are definitely NOT low carb…until now!

Growing up I loved “Tim Bits” from Tim Hortons, and these keto donut holes remind me of them! Most of the donut shops here in Texas make donut holes with yeast dough, but I’m partial to cake-style donut holes just like my favorite Tim Bits!

These caramel coated keto donut holes are pretty much the best thing ever! They’re a spot on copycat of my favorite donut treat with only 3 net carbs each!

The only “bad” thing about them is that it’s hard to eat just one!
