  • 3 cups almond flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 6 large eggs
  • 9 tbsp honey
  • 6 tsp vanilla

Donut coffee glaze



  • In a medium-sized bowl, mix almond flour and baking soda until no clumps are visible.
  • In a separate bowl, mix in eggs, vanilla and honey. (Make sure honey is melted before mixing.) Mix all ingredients until fully incorporated.
  • Slowly add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Mix until fully incorporated with no clumps.
  • Grease donut tray with room-temperature butter, making sure there is plenty of butter covering each space of the mold.
  • Pipe in donut batter 3/4 of the way up, leaving room for donuts to rise during the baking process.
  • Bake at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes, then rotate the tray and bake for another 6 minutes, or until donuts are fully cooked.
  • Once pulled from oven, remove donuts from mold and let cool on a sheet tray. Donuts should be completely cooled before glazing.

Donut Coffee Glaze

  • In a medium-sized bowl, mix in xylitol and coffee shots. Whisk until fully incorporated with no visible clumps.
  • If mixture is too thick, adjust with a bit of water. Glaze should be thick enough to cover the back of a spoon completely.
  • Gently dip donuts in glaze, then place them on a sheet tray icing-side up to dry.
  • Devour!
