Almond Flour Mini Donuts

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 1/4 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 1/4 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.

    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.

      Hi, I brought mine from….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.
