Chocolate Donuts:

White Chocolate Glaze*


Chocolate Donuts

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 6-cavity donut pan, set side.
  • Separate eggs, whip whites until stiff peaks form, set aside.
  • Combine almond flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt in a small bowl, set aside.
  • In a microwave safe dish, heat coconut oil and honey together until the coconut oil is melted (about 30-60 seconds). Stir until smooth.
  • Add apple cider vinegar, eggs yolks and vanilla to the coconut oil/honey mixture.
  • Add dry ingredients and stir until combined.
  • Gently fold in egg whites until mixture is homogenous.
  • Evenly distribute the batter between the 6 donut cavities. Smooth out the tops of each donut.
  • Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes or until the tops are set and golden brown.
  • Allow donuts to cool in pan for 5-10 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.

White Chocolate Glaze:

  • While donuts are cooling, make the glaze.
  • Melt coconut oil and cocoa butter together in the microwave or on the stove over medium heat.
  • Stir until smooth and let cool for about 5 minutes.
  • Add powdered sugar and stir until combined.

Putting it together:

  • Pour glaze over cooled donuts and let stand at room temperature or in the refrigerator until hardened.
  • Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days!


*This recipe makes enough glaze coat the donuts twice. If you want a classic, thin glaze, halve the glaze recipe and only apply one coat. If you'd like a thicker glaze, make the full recipe. Then glaze each donut once, let the glaze cool and harden, then apply a second coat! 
**Regular white chocolate disks or a bar {not paleo} can be used in place of raw cocoa butter. Be sure to choose a variety that contains cocoa butter and does not contain corn syrup. 
***Use this recipe to make your own paleo powdered sugar
