Cinnamon Spice Paleo Donuts

Makes 12 donuts

Pumpkin, cinnamon, hot lattes, rain boots—fall, my favorite season!  The time of year when the trees burst with color and the crisp morning air refreshes.  Fall gives any excuse to add pumpkin and spices to everything!  The other day I searched far and wide in search for pumpkins to decorate my house, needless to say, I don’t think they exist in Hawaii.  So, cinnamon spice doughnuts were created instead.  These Paleo donuts are baked rather than deep fried, but a perfect comfort treat on a cold day.

These mini cakelettes are perfect proof that a healthy lifestyle can be delicious and fun at the same time! Rise and shine—may your kitchen be filled with sweet scents and buttery cake donuts this weekend.


Donut Batter Ingredients:

•  3/4 cup almond flour

•  2 tbsp coconut flour

•  2 tbsp coconut sugar

•  4 eggs

•  1/2 cup apple sauce

•  4 tbsp melted butter

•  2 tsp apple cider vinegar

•  1 tsp baking soda

•  1 tsp cinnamon

•  pinch of nutmeg

•  pinch of cloves

•  1/4 tsp sea salt


Cinnamon Glaze Ingredients:

•  3 tbsp melted butter

•  2 tbsp raw honey

•  1 tsp vanilla extract

•  1 tsp cinnamon




1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Butter or oil a donut pan.

2) Sift all dry ingredients together, removing any bumps.

3) Whisk together eggs, apple sauce, and vinegar.

4) Combine egg mixture with the flours and mix together.  Set aside to allow the grain-free flours to soak up the liquids.

5) In a small sauce pan, melt butter.  Add butter to donut batter and mix thoroughly.

6) Pour batter into donut mold, filling about 2/3 full.

7) Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until a tester comes out clean.

8) Allow Paleo donuts to cool in the pan for a few minutes, then invert onto a cooling rack.

9) Dip the Paleo donuts into the butter glaze and serve!

*I used a bag and cut the tip off, then swirled the batter easily into the mold.


Tips for making Paleo Donuts:

•  When making the glaze, melt the butter and turn off the heat before adding cinnamon and honey other wise the cinnamon will separate and burn if it is too hot.

•  Allow warm doughnuts to set in the glaze for at least 30 seconds.  This will let the glaze soak into the doughnuts to make them moist and sweet.
