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.

Maple Glazed Donuts (grain and gluten free, paleo) ~ savorylotus

 

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.

 

 Maple Glazed Donuts

(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!

    YUM!!!!!! if you don’t have a donut pan, do you think the dough would work in muffin tins like a popover? Or, just spend the $ on the donut pan?

  2. Brandy says

    I’m seeing a lot of recipes with raw cashew glazes. I’m allergic to cashews and for now can’t have peanuts. Would another nut work?

    • says

      Pecans would work well in this glaze. You can also just omit the nuts and make a glaze with just coconut butter and maple syrup. :)

  3. Kati says

    I am really excited to try these! We have recently gone Grain/Dairy free so this will be a nice change up to breakfast which have been mainly eggs or a variation of.

  4. Susan says

    Hi Katja. I love your website and recipes, but I’m just wondering if a NON-STICK donut pan is the way to go. I’ve read in many places that they are toxic. What do you think?

    • says

      I am a big fan of non-reactive cookware, for sure. However, I the donut pan I have is nonstick. It’s the only nonstick thing that I own. I have seen silicone donut pans but not sure how they work. I still can’t get my head around sticking something so flimsy and plasticky in the oven. ;)

      • Susan says

        Ha Ha….you’re right about that! Whenever I use the silicone bakeware, I hate how they flop around…very irritating!

  5. Lisa Sherman says

    Any suggestions for a nut free flour? Maybe just a GF all purpose? My daughter has severe nut allergies, but I would love to try these. They look AMAZING!!

    • says

      Hi, Lisa~ coconut flour is a good alternative but cannot be used in equal proportions as it absorbs much more liquid. I am actually working on a recipe for all coconut flour donuts. For now, you could try this recipe with 3 eggs and 5-6 TBS of coconut flour ~ keep the rest the same. Allow mixture to sit for a few minutes so coconut flour can absorb moisture. Can’t guarantee but that’s a good start off the top of my head. And yes, you can always experiment with gluten free flours. I haven’t used them much so can’t say what the ratios of flour to oil to eggs would be. Let me know if you give it a go! :)

    Yay you’re back! And with wonderful dontus, too. I love, love, LOVE maple icing (well, maple anything, really). I should give this recipe a try and put my donut pan to use!
