Coconut Flour Doughnuts


These are from this month's newsletter. What a great snack or breakfast treat. They are really easy to make. While they don't taste just like a typical doughnut that is over processed and full of junk, they are still really tasty and remarkably good for you, with coconut flour, coconut oil, eggs and no sugar. Try them if you like cake doughnuts. If you don't have a doughnut pan, a mini muffin pan will work too. If you don't want to glaze or ice them, add a bit more sweetener to the batter.

This photo is the doughnuts with cinnamon and Cinnamon Danish flavoring added to the batter. I tried just dipping them in powdered xylitol and it worked great. They look just like those little "gems" that we used to eat. They even make the same white snowfall under your chin when you bite them!

My history students are having a USO party this weekend. I think I will make a batch so my family can enjoy the coffee and doughnuts too. We are also supposed to be running a cake walk. Now, just what would we do with a regular cake, chocked full of sugars and gluten? If we don't win it, maybe we can work a trade for the low carb dessert I will bring. Now to decide what that will be...

I will be trying these, as well. I haven't looked too far back through your recipes, but I've got to ask, have you used gram (chickpea) flour at all? It works just like white cake flour, from my experience.

I made these today. They were excellent. I dipped them in the chocolate glaze belnd that you suggested and then in unsweetened coconut that I had softened with a little water and splenda. Excellent. Thank you for sharing.

I wish y'all would come out with a Kindle edition of your cook books. I find it so convenient to take my Kindle to the store with me and pull up a recipe to make sure I have everything that I need.
