These little cheesecake bites are the perfect sweet treat when craving something creamy and delicious.

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup full-fat cream cheese
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions:

Beat the cream cheese, sour cream, and vanilla together until smooth in a medium bowl. Place in the fridge for 30 minutes to firm up. Once firm, use a small cookie or spoon to scoop out the mixture and form it into balls. Place on a plate or in a container and store in the fridge for up to a week.

Notes:

  • You can use any cream cheese you like for this recipe, but full-fat will give you the best results.
  • If your mixture is too soft to form into balls, place it in the freezer for 15-20 minutes before scooping.

These donuts are soft, fluffy, and coated in a sweet cinnamon sugar mixture — they’re impossible to resist!

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup almond flour
  • ¼ cup coconut flour
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

Instructions:

Preheat the oven to 350F and grease a donut pan. Whisk the almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon in a large bowl. Add the melted butter and stir until well combined.

Allow cooling slightly before coating in the cinnamon-sugar mixture.

To make the cinnamon sugar coating:

  • ½ cup granulated sweetener of your choice
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

Instructions:

Mix the sweetener and cinnamon in a small bowl. Place the donuts in the mixture and coat evenly. Allow cooling completely before serving.

Notes:

  • These donuts are best fresh, but they will keep in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week.
