Paleo baked donuts that are easy, delicious and with the most tender crumb.


  • 1 cup superfine almond flour
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder use a paleo baking powder if trying to keep this strictly paleo
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease your donut pan cavities.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together almond flour, baking powder, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, vanilla, oil and milk.
  3. Add liquid mixture to the dry batter and whisk until smooth.
  4. Fill donut cavities about 2/3 full. Bake for about 15 minutes or until donuts are done.
  5. To remove donuts, use a spatula to loosen edges of donuts. Allow donuts to cool before coating.


  • I used these donut pans*. They yield donuts that are smaller than traditional yeast donuts but bigger than mini donuts. I recommend using this nonstick pan over the silicone pans as the donuts are hard to remove in the silicone pans.
  • For topping options, you can roll the donuts in coconut sugar or you can make a chocolate glaze by melting dark chocolate with a little bit of coconut oil or coconut cream.
