  • In a mixing bowl, combine the Greek yogurt, almond flour, sweetener, cinnamon, and baking powder. Stir until a dough forms.
  • If the mixture is too sticky, gradually add more almond flour until it’s firm enough to handle.
  • Roll the dough into eight even balls and place them on a parchment paper-lined air fryer basket.
  • Lightly spray the donut balls with oil to ensure they crisp up nicely.
  • Air fry at 325°F for 8-10 minutes, or until they are golden and cooked through.
  • While the donuts are cooling, prepare the coating by mixing the additional sweetener and cinnamon in a small bowl.
  • Melt the butter in a separate bowl and dip each donut ball to coat lightly, then roll them in the cinnamon-sweetener mixture until well coated.
  • Allow the donut balls to set for a few minutes before serving.


  • Serving Suggestions
    Serve these Keto Cinnamon Donut Balls warm for the best flavor and texture. They pair wonderfully with a cup of sugar-free almond milk latte or your favorite keto-friendly hot beverage for a cozy and comforting snack.
  • Notes
    – For a dairy-free version, substitute the Greek yogurt with a non-dairy alternative, and use dairy-free butter.
    – The sweetness level can be adjusted according to taste preference; add more or less sweetener as desired.
    – These donut balls can be stored in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
  • Tips
    – Ensure your air fryer is preheated for even cooking.
    – Do not overcrowd the air fryer basket; cook in batches if necessary.
    – For an extra crispy exterior, spray the donut balls with a little more oil halfway through cooking.
  • Variations/Modifications
    – Chocolate Cinnamon: Add sugar-free chocolate chips to the dough for a chocolatey twist.
    – Nutty Delight: Mix in crushed pecans or walnuts for added texture and nuttiness.
    – Pumpkin Spice: Incorporate pumpkin spice into the dough and coating for a fall flavor variation.
  • Prep Ahead Tips
    The dough for these Keto Cinnamon Donut Balls can be made ahead and stored in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours before cooking. Roll and coat with the cinnamon mixture just before air frying to maintain the best texture.
