For the Donuts:

  • 2/3 cup GF All Purpose Flour
  • 1/3 cup Almond Flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 TBSP creamy nut butter (Justin’s Vanilla Almond Butter worked well)
  • 1 TBSP maple syrup
  • 1 TBSP melted butter
  • 1/2 cup + 2 TBSP milk of choice
  • 1 egg

For the Cinnamon Sugar Coating:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray donut pan with non-stick spray.
  2. Add all dry ingredients to a large mixing bowl and stir until combined.
  3. Add all wet ingredients to a medium mixing bowl, and whisk until smooth and blended.
  4. Add wet mixture to the dry mixture, and stir until fully combined throughout.
  5. Spoon mixture into donut pans (fill about 2/3 full) and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  6. Once donuts have cooled a bit, combine cinnamon and sugar into a small bowl, and melted coconut oil in a separate small bowl. Brush melted coconut oil onto top of donut, then dip donut into cinnamon sugar mixture, coating throughout. Repeat for all donuts.
  7. Enjoy!


*Reminder: this recipe is Gluten free for those like me that struggle with gluten intolerance or Celiac Disease. Gluten free diets are only recommended for those with these medical issues or specifically prescribed by your physician. A gluten free diet is NOT any healthier than eating a regular diet with gluten.

This recipe can easily be adapted for your preferences! Lactose intolerant? Use almond milk, Lactaid milk, or oat milk.

Allergic to nuts? Omit the nut butter.

Not GF? Use regular all purpose flour.
