So, who doesn’t love doughnuts and coffee on Saturday mornings?! I am definitely guilty of “cheating” with the traditional fried doughy goodness bombs …But now I have a GREAT Grain Free, baked option!
What you will need:
- 1/4 c coconut flour
- 2 tbsp almond flour
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 3 eggs
- 2 tsp Cinnamon
- 2 tbsp coconut sugar
- 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
- 2 tbsp coconut milk (almond works too)
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- Doughnut pan
How it’s Done:
- Pre-heat to 350
- In two, separate bowls, mix all dry ingredients together and then all wet together.
- Mix both wet & dry together, and put mixture into a storage baggie/piping bag to make the transfer to the donut pan easier.
- Bake for 15-20 min
For the Glaze: (this IS NOT primal/paleo, but it’s so good…who cares!)
While the doughnuts are baking… Use a small sauce pan and heat to a boil.
- 1 tbsp Coconut Oil
- 2 tbsp butter
- 3 tbsp coconut sugar
- a touch or maple syrup
- pinch of salt
DO not heat, just set aside for now
- Stir ingredients (except cream cheese) over heat and bring to a quick boil
- Then reduce heat and continue to stir until all ingredients incorporate well.
- Pour into heat safe bowl and mix with cream cheese until smooth. Then set aside.
- Once Doughnuts have cools slightly, you can spread the glaze over the top of each doughnut and enjoy!

These are REALLY GOOD almond butter cookies all on their own!! The Pomegranate Salt & Dark chocolate add beautiful color to this simple presentation. This recipe is from http://www.topwithcinnamon.com/2013/11/chocolate-dipped-peanut-butter-cookies-with-pomegranate-salt-gf.html I modified my cookies to use almond butter & almond flour…but check out her blog it has absolutely gorgeous photography!
- I used Kosher BUT I think Maldon salt (or another flaky salt) would work better
- Pomegranate juice
- Either get pomegranate juice from when you cut a pomegranate in half, from crushing some pomegranate arils (seeds), or store-bought pomegranate juice.
- Use a spoon or pastry brush to splatter a piece of parchment paper with a little pomegranate juice.
- Sprinkle a few table spoons of salt over parchment paper and use a fork to gently stir. Splash on a bit more pomegranate juice if needed.
- Stir until all the salt is coated.
- Spread salt out carefully over the piece of parchment paper and leave to dry.
- Once dried, store in a small jar or bowl.
Chocolate Dipped Almond Butter Cookies
- 1/2 cup Almond peanut butter

- 1/3 cup coconut sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 3/4 cup almond flour
- 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup roughly chopped bittersweet chocolate
- Pomegranate salt (see recipe above) or flaky salt, for sprinkling
- Preheat the oven to 350 F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
- Cream together the first 6 ingredients until smooth. Stir in the almond flour.
- Scoop tablespoons of dough onto the lined cookie sheet, spacing them about 2-inches apart.
- Bake for 8-10 minutes until golden underneath and on the edges. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
- Melt the chocolate. Dip one half of each cookie into the chocolate and place onto a piece of parchment paper. Sprinkle with some pomegranate salt (or normal flaky salt) and leave to set.
