Some of my favorite memories visiting Vermont involve these wonderful Doughnuts.  I was thrilled to find these online and even more excited when they turned out exactly as I remember!  While I definitely don’t make a habit of Deep Frying, these guys may have proved “worth the trouble”.  I used SmittenKitchen.com recipe and it did NOT disappoint so I thought it was worth the “share”!  Enjoy!

Primal Cinnamon Doughnuts with Maple Butter Cream Cheese Glaze

Image

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:

  1. Pre-heat to 350
  2. In two, separate bowls, mix all dry ingredients together and then all wet together.
  3. Mix both wet & dry together, and put mixture into a storage baggie/piping bag to make the transfer to the donut pan easier.
  4. 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

  • 2 tbsp cream cheese
  1. Stir ingredients (except cream cheese) over heat and bring to a quick boil
  2. Then reduce heat and continue to stir until all ingredients incorporate well.
  3. Pour into heat safe bowl and mix with cream cheese until smooth.  Then set aside.
  4. Once Doughnuts have cools slightly, you can spread the glaze over the top of each doughnut and enjoy!
