Nut-free Paleo Chocolate Donuts (Vegan opt.)

Updated: Jul 1, 2020

These are THE fluffiest, most addictive, make-you-feel-good treat, and you can even have them for breakfast! These donuts are one of my new favorite things ever, along with greek yogurt and apples because that combo SLAPS

Now we all know how much I love nuts, baking with nuts, and nut butters because it's in the name, but these literally have the most perfect consistency ever👏

Okay okay, I know that these are nut-free, but I literally can't help the strong urge I have to slather some peanut butter on these... whoops

I mean if you don't need these to be nut-free, some sort of nut butter on one of these would be sooo good

The below donuts are the ones I made with flax eggs and topped with crushed organic candies :)

Topping Ideas:

Mini chocolate chips, organic sprinkles (the ones I used are linked in my "products" section on my site), crushed organic candies, drizzles nut butter (if not nut free), a nice melted white chocolate drizzle, or anything you see fit!

The below donuts are the ones I made with regular eggs and organic sprinkles (can find the link in my "products" section :)


yields: 6 donuts

prep time: 5 minutes

cook time: 20 minutes

total time (including cooling & glazing): 45 minutes


For the donuts:

3 flax eggs or cage free eggs (I tested both and they both were just as good!)

1/2 cup coconut sugar

1/3 cup maple syrup

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 cup coconut flour

1/4 cup tapioca starch

1/3 cup cacao powder

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

For the glaze:

1/2 cup dark chocolate

1/2 tbsp coconut oil


1/4 cup organic rainbow sprinkles or crushed organic chocolate candies (I used Unreal snacks)

(See above for other topping ideas)


1. Preheat oven to 350 F and grease a 6 slot donut pan and set aside

2. In a large bowl mix together the eggs, coconut sugar, maple syrup, and vanilla extract

3. Then add in the coconut flour, tapioca starch, cacao powder, baking soda, and salt. Then wait a moment for the coconut flour to thicken it up before your eyes🙃

4. Place the batter evenly into the donut pan and bake in the oven for 19-23 minutes. Let cool for 10 mins if you used regular eggs, but 20 minutes if you used flax eggs, cooling is imperative or else the donuts will fall apart and that would be very sad :(

5. While the donuts are cooling, make the glaze. In 30 second increments melt the chocolate coconut oil together, stirring in between and set aside. Then prepare your toppings!

6. Once they have cooled, take a knife and gently go around the outside of the donut pan to make sure they’re not stuck. Then gently, one by one, flip the donuts onto a cooling rack.

7. Dip each donut (dip the smoother side!) in the chocolate mixture and top with your favorite toppings, let the chocolate cool before eating (or not🙃), and enjoy!
