Hanukkah Donuts

Spiced “Sugar” Topping


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease donut pan very well, even if it's non-stick or silicone. Almond flour-based batters are more sticky. Set aside.

  3. In a mixing bowl, whisk together dry ingredients until completely incorporated. Be sure to break up any lumps of nut flour.
  4. In a smaller bowl, whisk together wet ingredients.
  5. Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredient mixture and mix well.
  6. Allow the batter to sit for a few minutes to allow the coconut flour to absorb the liquid.
  7. If batter is too thick, add additional liquid in small amounts until a loose muffin batter consistency is achieved.
  8. Divide batter among the wells in your donut pan. For 12 donuts, use about 1-1/2 tablespoons of batter. If any batter remains, be sure to divvy it up evenly.

  9. Bake in your preheated oven for 20 to 30 minutes, or until tops are beginning to brown, bottoms are nicely browned, and donuts are beginning to pull away from the sides of the pan.

  10. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.
  11. While donuts are cooling, mix together erythritol, spices, and salt in a small bowl.

  12. Once donuts are cooled, gently remove from the pan by using a thin knife or spreader to loosen, if necessary.

  13. Gently brush each donut with olive oil (or other melted fat of choice) then roll in Spiced “Sugar” Topping.

  14. Enjoy!
