Paleo Apple Spice Donuts

  • Author: Kelsey


  • 1 ¼ cup blanched almond flour
  • ⅛ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon cardamom
  • ¼ teaspoon allspice
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • ½ cup coconut milk, full fat
  • 2 tablespoons ghee, melted  (coconut oil works too)
  • 1 egg
  • 23 apples (i used honeycrisp)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • ¼ cup cashew butter
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoon cinnamon


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and spray a donut pan with oil spray.
  • Shred the apples with a cheese grater then place them on a paper towel and squeeze them to take most of the moisture out.  Then measure out 1 cup of shredded apple and set aside.
  • Mix together the blanched almond flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, allspice and salt.
  • Add the maple syrup, coconut milk, ghee, egg, and vanilla to the bowl and mix to combine.  Then fold in the shredded apple into the batter.
  • Scoop batter into a large ziplock bag and cut the tip of the bag with scissors. Squeeze batter into the donut pan then shake it a little to evenly disperse the batter.
  • Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 18 minutes.
  • Set pan over a wire rack to cool. Wait until donuts are cooled a bit then remove from the pan.
  • Frosting:  Combine cashew butter, maple syrup and cinnamon in a small bowl.  Spread the frosting on top of the cooled donuts.
