Glazed Maple Donuts

adapted from the Dashing Dish

Makes 6 servings

  • 1/2 cup coconut flour (we used a brand called Coconut Secret)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 cup  unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tbs protein powder (we used TruteinCinnabun)
  • 2 tsp maple extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • stevia to taste

For the glaze:

  • 1/2 cup erythritol powdered sweetener
  • 1 tbs almond milk

Preheat oven to 350, and spray a donut pan with non-stick cooking spray. In a small bowl, beat the egg and egg white together, and then add your almond milk, maple extract, and stevia. In another small bowl mix your dry ingredients (coconut flour, protein powder, and baking soda) together, and slowly add your wet ingredients. Spoon donut batter into prepared donut pan, and bake for 20-25 minutes or until donuts are golden brown. While donuts are baking, mix together your ingredients for the glaze. Once donuts are cooked, remove them from the pan while still warm and spoon glaze on top of donuts. Enjoy with a cool glass of milk!

    Ah you are totally right! That was a typo – it was supposed to be 1/2 tsp baking soda. So sorry!!

    MADE THIS! Didn’t have maple extract so I used some banana and vanilla extract. I also added 1 Tbs of golden flax seed. Verdict: I think there’s too much baking soda in this; the taste is almost overwhelming. Maybe use less soda or use baking powder? I glazed these with 1/2 stick butter, barely melted, 3 packets of Truvia, a splash of vanilla extract, and about 1 Tbs of heavy cream (add a bit at a time). Could have used a bit more sweetener in the glaze…and a little more glaze overall. But these will get eaten. I might try frying a cooked donut to see how that turns out! Thanks for the recipe!
