Paleo apple cider donuts

Paleo apple cider donuts


2 1/2 cups blanched almond flour

1/3 tsp. kosher salt

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

1/2 tsp. baking soda

3 large eggs

1/4 cup raw honey

2 tbl. apple cider

1/4 cup coconut oil, melted

1 tbl. vanilla

1 tsp. apple cider vinegar


1 tbl. apple cider

1 tbl. pure maple syrup

1 tbl. maple sugar

1/4 tsp. cinnamon


Preheat your oven to 350°F.  Whisk together your dry ingredients in one bowl, set aside.  In a separate bowl, whisk together your wet ingredients.  Whisk your dry ingredients into your wet until well combined.  Grease a donut pan (I used a silicone mini donut mold) with coconut oil and fill about halfway with batter.  I filled my first batch too much and made mini cakes instead of donuts (no holes) oops.  Bake your donuts (if using silicone place the mold on a baking sheet) at 350°F for 15 minutes.

For the glaze:

In one bowl mix 1 tbl. maple sugar with 1/4 tsp cinnamon and set aside.  In another bowl whisk together apple cider and maple syrup.  Once you turn the donuts out of the pan (I recommend doing this while the donuts are still hot)  brush them with the maple/cider glaze and immediately sprinkle with cinnamon maple sugar.

This will make 12-18 mini donuts.
