I tricked some non-paleo friends into enjoying these baked apple cinnamon “donuts”. All you need to get started is this little donut pan. I’m trying to be healthier but love a treat as much as everyone else, so I made these relatively easy donuts (they’re more cake-like, but I’m into them) and my friends enjoyed them, too.

Easy Paleo Apple Cinnamon Donuts


1/2 cup almond flour
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/4 cup arrowroot flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 eggs (these should be room temperature–just trust me on this one)
2 egg whites
3 tablespoons agave
2 tablespoons coconut oil (melted)
1 tablespoon vanilla

To make apple cinnamon donuts, add:

1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1/2 c applesauce

To make sunbutter donuts, add:

2 tbsp sunbutter
1 tbsp cinnamon


2 tablespoons coconut oil (melted)
4 tablespoons coconut sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon

How to make them

Add oil to the pan. I used Trader Joe’s coconut oil spray.
Bake at 350 for 10-12 min This recipe is really easy to modify, so play around with a little coconut, some banana, cacao powder, lemon, or even pumpkin. Enjoy!
