Although these almond flour donuts are baked in a mini muffin tin, you could use a regular donut tin for these. They are a delicious low carb and gluten free treat. A baked donut is much healthier than a deep fried one too.
I saw the cutest mini donut pan in a supermarket that sang to me like a siren. So an almond flour recipe for donuts was made and a happy husband taste tested to his hearts content. I then made two batches, one with the regular recipe below, the other batch had changed ¼ cup cocoa powder added. Chocolate mini donuts were in the house! The bunting was put up and the balloons blown. The Chief Taster shed a tiny tear.
I must make another batch of these almond flour donuts and dip them in cocoa powder and coconut oil for a chocolate glaze too! The recipe below is just for a plain donut flavoured with cinnamon. If you want to make the chocolate donuts, add ¼ cup cocoa flour to the mix. You may need a little bit of water to smooth the batter.
Almond Flour Mini Donuts
Serve these almond flour donuts plain or dipped in melted chocolate than a double dip in unsweetened coconut flour. I've been more creative with my coconut flour donuts but should give these almond flour donuts some more attention.
Almond Flour Mini Donuts

- Pour into the donut pan and bake for 20 minutes.
- Eat and enjoy!
Oh, these are good! I love them!
Just tried the almond flour donuts, really good, i just need a good low carb glaze now. I dont like the taste of the artificial sweetener glazes. I was thinking of adding a little less sweetener and adding some spices like garlic and italian season and making muffins
How about a coconut oil and cocoa powder mixed together for a glaze? I have a few savoury muffins on the site you might be interested in..
Just a friendly FYI. Do a search for the word great in your recipe and replace it with grease. I just made another recipe for donuts and they were light , fully, and stuck to the pan. I used to have a great almond flour donut recipe that perfectly made 6 donuts for my 6 cavity pan but that was 2 computers ago and I've seem to have lost it. I plan on trying this one as it doesn't have the liquid the one I just tired has. Thank your for posting this recipe.
Thanks! Auto correct is rubbish at times. Hope these work for you.
They look good Donna :;-

Since having to go low carb I have missed having donuts so will try this but it looks like a great recipe. Love this blog
Thanks Donna! Hope you enjoy the recipe! I have a few coconut flour donut recipes too! Don't worry about going LC - there's still lots of tasty things you can eat!
I ran across a mini donut pan, and also thought, "How cute, I've got to get this." I tried your recipe and am pleased. Thanks. Looking forward to trying more of your recipes, especiaLLY the almond flour ones. Thanks. June Beard, Murfreesboro, Tn
They are cute! Try the mini bagels too! Glad you like the recipes!
Hello! Can you please tell me where you purchased your Donut Baking Tin?
Hi, I brought mine from Amazon.com....I did buy mini ones from a large supermarket too (Geant). I would hope that specialist stores would have them too, but have not searched in them all.
