Confession time:  I may have had to make these donuts twice because I didn’t have the patience to wait until  morning to take my photos.  I couldn’t resist.  Can’t say that I have been much of a donut eater in my life, but after making these Grain Free Maple Glazed Donuts, I’m hooked. 

These wildly delicious creations are my first attempt at making donuts EVER.  On an impulse, I ordered a donut pan online.  I figured I had seen enough donut recipes on PINTEREST that it was time to give it a shot.

Oh my goodness!  I had no idea.  Making donuts is super easy.  Dangerously easy.

A little protein rich almond flour, a titch of coconut flour, some fresh from the farm pastured eggs, and coconut milk.  It was all coming together.  Add a little sweetener, and now you’re talking.

You can use either coconut oil or ghee.  I personally prefer the ghee.  But the coconut oil is heavenly as well.

 

Oh, and the glaze.  I’m not even going to tell you how mouth-watering the glaze is.  Like I said, dangerously easy!

 

Now I’m definitely going to have to get that mini donut pan I was eye-balling.

(grain and gluten free, paleo)

makes 6 donuts

Ingredients:

1 and 1/4 cups blanched almond flour (This is my favorite brand)

2 TBS coconut flour  (where to buy)

1/2 tsp unrefined sea salt (I use this one)

1/2 tsp baking soda

2 eggs

4 TBS full fat coconut milk (where to buy BPA and additive free coconut milk)

4 TBS real maple syrup (or honey)

4 TBS coconut oil, melted (I use THIS brand)

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

FOR MAPLE GLAZE:

1/2 cup raw cashews

1/4 cup real maple syrup

4 TBS coconut butter, melted (I love this one)

2 TBS coconut oil, melted

2 TBS filtered water  (plus more if necessary)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350’F.  Lightly grease your donut pan with a titch of coconut oil
  2. Combine almond flour, coconut flour, salt, and baking soda in a medium bowl.  Set aside.
  3. In another large bowl, whisk together eggs, coconut milk, maple syrup, coconut oil, and vanilla until thoroughly combined.
  4. Add dry ingredients to wet and stir to combine.
  5. Place the batter in a piping bag or large ziploc bag with the end cut off the end so there’s about a 1/2-inch opening
  6. Fill each cavity in donut pan 3/4 full.  Give the pan a little shake or two to let the batter settle.
  7. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until toothpick inserted comes out clean and edges are just beginning to brown.
  8. Remove from oven.  Let cool for 5 minutes then  tip over onto a cooling rack. Allow to cool completely  before adding glaze.
  9. To make glaze: Place all glaze ingredients into high speed blender.  Process until smooth and creamy. Add more water a tiny bit at a time if it’s too thick to pour.  Pour into shallow bowl.  Dip each donut into glaze with a twisting motion to let extra run back into bowl.  Place back onto cooling rack.
  10. Enjoy!
