Gluten Free Donuts!!!

Oh my goodness, need I say more? It's a dream come true right....gluten free and donut to be in the same sentence. Okay, so it's not exactly Krispy Kreme, but they are sweet enough and have a hole in the middle....score! These are even better because dare I say, they are actually good for you!

These delectable yummies are made with coconut flour. It's loaded with awesome fiber, healthy fat, and vitamins! Really, while they do contain some healthier sugar, you could almost serve these to the kids for breakfast and really not give yourself a guilt trip.



1/2 Cup Organic Unrefined Coconut Oil
1/4 Cup Organic Coconut Sugar 
1/4 Cup Organic Maple Syrup
1/2 Tbsp Organic Ceylon Cinnamon
6 Farm Fresh Free Range Eggs
2 Tsp Organic Pure Vanilla Extract
3/4 Cup Organic Coconut Flour
3/4 Tsp Baking Soda
1 Tsp Celtic Sea Salt

Chocolate Topping
One 365 Whole Trade Dark Chocolate Bar
1 Tbsp Organic Unrefined Coconut Oil


I used a Pampered Chef fluted mini bundt stoneware pan. Go ahead and grease it with coconut oil ahead of time. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees F.

You can use a blender or food processor. I opted for the food processor. Go ahead and add your eggs, coconut oil, coconut sugar, cinnamon, and maple syrup. Process them well.

Place a stainless steel mesh strainer over the open top of the processor bowl. In the strainer add the flour, salt, and baking soda to sift. Shake and sift the mix. Whatever doesn't sift through, dump into the processor bowl. Process it well.

Pour into greased wells of donut pan or fluted mini bundt pan. If you use the Pampered Chef fluted mini bundt pan it will take 30 minutes to bake. Using smaller donut pans? Cut the bake time in half.

While baking, break up the chocolate bar into a small pot. Add the coconut oil. Don't do anything with this yet. Once the donuts come out of the oven, put the pot with the chocolate on the stove. 

Slowly melt the chocolate. Then drizzle it over top of the donuts. 

I realize mine do not look super pretty. Perhaps you are an expert drizzler, I am not :) That's okay, they still taste fabulous! Put them in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. Then take them out and enjoy them! Please let me know if you try them with a comment on my blog. Be healthy, be blessed, and be a good steward!
