Paleo Chocolate Donuts (Gluten-Free)

These donuts do not contain dairy or gluten.

Where did this week go?  I can't believe it's August already either.  Pretty soon, I'll be planning for my classes and getting my kiddos ready for back to school.  I'm not ready.

I posted these donuts on my feed before vacation.  I'm just getting around to sharing this recipe.  I need to get more organized next week!  It's just hard with young kiddos.  I know it probably seems like I just have oodles of time to myself during the summer but it's not the case when you are with your young kiddos full-time.

Let's talk about these donuts though!  They are fluffy and tender on the outside.  They feel and taste indulgent without the calorie tag!

Here's what you need to make these donuts at home.


1 cup Bob's Red Mill almond flour
2 medium bananas
2 tbsp almond butter
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
2 eggs

Preheat the oven to 350 F and spray the bottom of a donut tray with oil.  Peel and mash the bananas.  Mix the wet and dry ingredients in separate bowls.  Combine them.  Add the baking soda and the apple cider vinegar last.  This mix is enough for 6 donuts.  I used 4.5 tbsp of mix per donut.  Flatten the tops with the back of a spoon.  Bake the donuts for 15 minutes or until a knife comes out clean.  Let the donuts cool on a rack.  Enjoy!

I have to tell you guys, I used my new silicone donut trays and I absolutely love them!  I don't know why I didn't switch earlier.  I do spray them with oil before I add the mix but it's so much easier to get the donuts out of the mold! You just have to be careful transferring them to and from the oven because the tray is not as sturdy as a traditional pan.  Also, if you have a toddler at home try to keep them out of sight.  The bright colors of this set are very appealing to the young eye!

Here are the nutrition facts for these donuts:

Not bad, don't you think?  They have a pretty good amount of protein per donut and a good amount of fat too.  I like that they are low in carbs and have no added sugar.

I'm thinking of glazing these next time?  Do you like your donuts glazed or plain?  I love glazing, don't get me wrong.  I'm not a big fan of the high sugar tag though.  They taste good in the moment but you don't feel all that great later-  you know what I mean?

Enjoy these super easy and flavorful donuts!  Take a photo and share on Instagram using #peoniesandalatte to show us your creations.
