Cinnamon Donuts (Coconut Flour)

Cinnamon Donuts

Cinnamon donuts that are baked in a donut tray and are low carb as well as gluten free.  Made from coconut flour, they are a healthier alternative to fried donuts.

One of my favourite donut toppings is cinnamon and this definitely hails back to being brought up in a British seaside town…the smell of the cinnamon over hot donuts…mmmmm….   However, this is the unfried alternative made with coconut flour.    The only downside to this is that coconut flour is so filling…I am looking at a large batch of them and want to eat them all, but can’t …am too full.  Damn you fibre!

As ever, you need a donut tin. .I ordered mine via Amazon and it took about a week to get here.   If anyone finds the tin here, please let me know so I can spread the word.
