Baked Vanilla Paleo Donuts are deliciously easy to make! | spiritedandthensome.com

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1/3 cup melted coconut oil (measure after melting)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 2 eggs, whites and yolks separated

Instructions

  1. Set oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Whisk melted coconut oil, maple syrup, coconut flour, and almond flour in a medium size bowl.
  3. Add the vanilla extract and apple cider vinegar, and continue to whisk ingredients together.
  4. Add baking soda and whisk until evenly blended.
  5. Stir in egg yolks, gently using a fork if mixture becomes too thick for a whisk.
  6. In separate bowl, beat egg whites at a medium to high speed until they form peaks, approximately 3 minutes.
  7. Fold egg whites into donut mixture, using a spatula, if necessary.
  8. Grease donut pan and pour mixture into cavities.
  9. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 12 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
  10. Donuts will come out with a texture that looks a little “uneven” on the top. If you want yours to be as smooth as possible on the top, press batter down into donut cavities using the rounded side of a tablespoon.
  11. For best results, eat within 24 hours.

Notes

If you would like to make almond-flavored donuts, replace 1 tsp vanilla extract with approximately 3/4 tsp almond extract.
