Low Carb Donuts Glaze
What about the glaze? Well, it is perfectly glossy and sugar-free. We are using maple flavoring so there is no need for sugary maple syrup to have that yummy maple flavor we all love so much.
It is not overly sweet like the traditional donut icing you might be used to, but you can always add a few tablespoons of powdered low-carb sweetener or a couple of drops of stevia or monk fruit if you like your icing really sweet. If you don’t need the icing to be overly sweet, you can skip the sweetener completely and you will be left with a subtle sweetness out of a coconut.
