  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil (melted)
  • 2 tbsp almond butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp almond flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour

Preheat oven to 350.

Grease donut pan with coconut oil.

Begin by placing dates and 1/2 tbsp water in the microwave to soften for 30 seconds.

Remove from microwave, add other 1/2 tbsp water and mash to create a paste (should end up with about 1/4 cup of paste).

Combine date paste with the rest of the donut ingredients (besides chocolate chips) in a food processor until a smooth batter forms and all are well incorporated.

Stir in chocolate chips.

Spoon batter into donut pan, filling about 3/4 of each hole.

Bake for 12 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean in the center.

While donuts are baking, prepare your glaze by whisking all ingredients together in a small bowl until the mixture is smooth.

When done, remove donuts from oven and allow to cool in pan for 5 minutes, then remove and cool on wire rack completely.

Once completely cool, dip the top of each donut into the glaze.

    I will definitely be trying this. P.S. you definitely would make a much better wife than I am! My husband would love you – is that awkward for saying?

    I am looking for a new protein powder so I will be checking this kind out!

    I am obsessed with doughnuts, I also got a full sized pan for Christmas. I have been making the ones from the 21DSD book, but once that’s done, watch out! PS – they have the chewy version of those ginger candies at Trader Joes. I’m also obsessed with that company’s ginger juice (sub for fresh ginger, which I hate peeling).

    I just had my boss tell me that I would get a raise if I made these for the office! Haha! So far, I have made your lemon bars which are outstanding so I can’t wait to make these too. Thanks for making Paleo so much more fun and tasty.
