Ingredients

Donuts:

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 2 tablespoons refined coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cup blanched almond flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon

Topping:

  • 1 tablespoon coconut sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Whisk together the eggs, coconut sugar, coconut oil, and vanilla.
  3. Once smooth, add the almond flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.
  4. Whisk until it’s combined. 
  5. Transfer the batter to a plastic baggie, seal it, and cut off one corner.
  6. Spray your donut tins with your favorite cooking spray. I like a coconut oil spray, but any spray works. 
  7. Place the silicone donut pan on a baking sheet. I switched to a silicone donut pan because I found the donuts were easier to remove after the cooked.
  8. Squeeze the batter out of the bag in a circular motion around the donut shape.
  9. Tap the pan to get the batter to flatten a bit and all the air bubbles to pop. 
  10. Bake for 15 minutes.
  11. After 15 minutes, allow the donuts to cool in the pan for 5 minutes to make sure they’re set before transferring them to a cooling rack. 
  12. Want that cinnamon sugar topping? In a shallow dish, mix together 1 tablespoon coconut sugar with 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Dampen your hands and slightly wet the top of the donut.
  13. Place the dampened top upside down into the cinnamon sugar and twist to coat it. Continue this until the donuts are coated as you like.
