Keyword: gluten free, Paleo
Servings: 6 donuts


Donut Ingredients:

  • ¼ cup coconut flour
  • ¾ cup almond flour
  • 2 teaspoons xanthan gum optional but recommended
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • 4 eggs
  • ½ cup apple cider

Topping Ingredients:

  • ½ cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • ½ cup apple cider


For the Donuts:

  • Preheat oven to 350℉.
  • Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl with a whisk.
  • Add rest of ingredients to the dry ingredient bowl and whisk until it becomes a sticky, thick dough.
  • Use a piping bag or a ziplock bag with a corner sniped to pipe the dough into a greased donut pan, filling the entire donut cavity. 
  • With the back of a spoon, smooth out the dough in the pan; it will bake in the exact form it is piped. Bake for 20 minutes. 

For the Topping:

  • Mix together the sugar and cinnamon with a whisk.
  • Pour the apple cider in a shallow bowl.
  • Dunk each COOLED donut quickly into the apple cider, so it doesn't get saturated, but slightly wet on the outside.
  • Put directly into the cinnamon sugar mixture and toss around to both sides of the donut.
  • Transfer to plate and enjoy!
