I am so, so soooo excited to share this recipe with you! All of the ingredients are natural and delicious so you can feel good about having two of these donuts! I wanted to create something that wasn’t too sweet, but also would be enough to satisfy your sweet tooth – also it’s important to me with all my meals and snacks to walk away feeling full but not bloated.
These are great for breakfast, as a snack, with your afternoon tea (tehee) or for dessert.
Dee’s Dynamite Almond Flour Donuts with Honey Almond Butter Glaze
- 2 tablespoons of melted ghee
- 1/3 cup honey
- 3 eggs
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup brown rice flour
- 1.5 cups almond flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- Coconut oil spray
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1 tablespoon almond butter (I love Barney Butter)
- 1 teaspoon water
- Wilton® 6-Cavity Doughnut Pan
In your mixing bowl, mix together your melted ghee, vanilla, honey and eggs. If you are using an electric or standing mixer, mix together on medium speed for just a few minutes.
In a separate bowl combine the baking soda, brown rice flour and almond flour. Use a fork or sifter to combine all of the dry ingredients together. This is an important step in the baking process. People will often drop in the flour right into their wet mixture, but by taking the extra step to make sure your flour/baking soda/baking power, etc is combined well first, you are going to get a smoother batter. Once your dry ingredients are combined, slowly drop it into your wet mixture and mix all together for a few minutes.
Pre heat your oven to 350 degrees.
Although I am using a non-stick pan, I always still either spray or grease my pan (in this case I sprayed it with coconut oil spray).
Using a spatula, fill a pipping bag with your batter. If you don’t have a pipping bag, you could always cut the end of a plastic bag. This just helps your evenly fill you donut pan.
Once you’ve filled your donut pan, pop into the oven for 12 minutes. You want them to become a light brown on top.
Remove from the donut pan and place on a cooling rack for at least 10 minutes.
Now for the glaze!
Heat up your honey in a sauce pan on medium heat. Let simmer for about 10 minutes. It will be all bubbly at first, but will eventually turn into a liquid. Turn the pan on low, and whisk in your almond butter for about a minute or until it has melted. Add one teaspoon of water to help keep the consistency of a glaze.
Remove from heat and dip your donuts into the glaze.
