Paleo Coconut Donuts | Plain and Chocolate Versions

Paleo Coconut Donuts | Plain and Chocolate VersionsWhen I started eating a healthier Paleo diet I thought that my Baby Cakes donut maker was going out to pasture, but luckily there are lots of yummy recipes out there that still make it a useful little gadget to keep around! I found this gluten free donut recipe over at Smashed Peas & Carrots, and I love Maggie and all of her recipes, so I knew this one would be a hit!

I have made these a couple of times and have only modified them slightly. They are really light and fluffy, and I have found they make the perfect fondue dipper. They don’t have a huge amount of sweetness, just a bit, so dipping them in chocolate is a perfect match.

Paleo Coconut Donuts

Adapted from Smashed Peas & Carrots

  • 1/2 c. of coconut flour
  • 1/2 c. of melted coconut oil, or grass fed butter
  • 5 eggs
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 TB vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • *optional 2-3 TB cocoa for a chocolate version
  • *optional 1 cup of melted Enjoy Life Dairy Free Chocolate Chips for “icing”
  1. Cream the oil and honey together.
  2. Add in vanilla and one egg at a time.
  3. Using a sifter, slowly add in coconut flour and baking soda. (I have found that sifting makes a huge difference in the texture of my recipes when I use coconut flour)
  4. Pour batter into a zipper storage bag, zip and cut off the tip.
  5. Squeeze batter (it will be thicker) into donut maker, close and wait for your donuts to be done!
  6. If you want to have icing on them dip them into the melted chocolate chips and put them on a plate to cool…
  7. …enjoy once cooled, or enjoy your paleo coconut donuts hot, just don’t burn your tongue!

Try this too!

  • Sub out coconut flour for 1 cup almond flour, and instead of using 5 eggs, only use 3. I really liked this modification when I make the chocolate donuts. Yum.

    Oh I’m excited to try these. I wonder if I could bake them in the oven instead of using a donut maker? I’m back to paleo and need a little treat :)
