Nutritional information (per naked doughnut)

42 kcal

Low-calorie & low-carb doughnuts are possible - all thanks to Lo-Dough

Using our Lo-Dough bases (blitzed to a crumb in a food processor), you can make incredible low-calorie and low-carb doughnuts, without compromising on flavour. 

Instead of deep-frying, you'll need a doughnut mould - easily available online for a couple of pounds. This means instead of deep-frying, you'll be baking them - which means no frying oil (full of calories and often, trans fats!). 

The ultimate low calorie doughnuts

Our naked doughnuts come in at 42 calories and 1g of carbs... How you top them is up to you... we've gone with:

  • White chocolate and sugar-free 100s and 1000s (add approx. 100 calories and 10g carbs)
  • Sugar-free salted caramel and toasted almonds (add approx. 133 calories and 1g carbs). For recipe, click here
  • Rich, dark chocolate and butter ganache, with chocolate sprinkles (add approx. 180 calories and 6g carbs)

To make this recipe, you'll need a 7cm diameter silicone doughnut mould. 


Serves 3
  • 1 piece of Lo-Dough, blitzed to fine crumbs
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 30ml of semi skimmed milk
  • 2 dessert spoons of sweetener
