Maple Glazed Donuts (Paleo, Keto)

Who else loves donuts? In my opinion, they are so good it seems almost impossible that you may be able to recreate your own at home. Even more so that they could be nourishing and healthy for you! Whaaaat?!

The good news is that these maple glazed donuts are equally as delicious as something you may find at Krispy Kreme, but they are FREE from the junk, fillers, and inflammatory ingredients that make you feel ick.

Let's take a look at how these healthier donuts really stack up against the fried dough you find at your local drive-thru.

Krispy Kreme Original Glazed doughnut is made from at least 50 ingredients – mostly artificial food additives that increase your risk of cancer, diabetes, heart disease, allergies, and digestive disorders. has 200 calories, 12 grams (g) fat (3g saturated), 2g protein, 0g fiber, 10g sugars, 6 percent of the daily value (DV) for calcium, 2 percent of the DV for vitamin C, and is made with partially hydrogenated soybean oil, also known as trans fats.

Ingredients: Enriched bleached wheat flour-  (contains bleached wheat flour, niacin, reduced iron, thiamine, mononitrate, riboflavin, folic acid), dextrose, vegetable shortening (partially hydrogenated soybean and/or cottonseed oil), water, sugar, soy flour, egg yolks, vital wheat gluten, yeast, nonfat milk, yeast nutrients (calcium sulfate, ammonium sulfate), dough conditioners (calcium dioxide, monocalcium and dicalcium phosphate, diammonium phosphate, sodium stearoyl-2-lacrylate, whey, starch, ascorbic acid, sodium bicarbonate, calcium carbonate), salt, mono-and-diglycerides, ethoxylated mono- and diglycerides, lecithin, calcium propionate (to retain freshness), cellulose gum, natural and artificial flavors, fungal alpha amylase, amylase, maltogenic amylase, pantosenase, protease, sodium caseinate, corn maltodextrin, corn syrup solids and BHT (to help protect flavor).Glaze also may contain: Calcium carbonate, agar, locust bean gum, disodium phosphate, and sorbitan monostearate

Eeeeeek! I don't have time to deconstruct every single ingredient that is put into this little circle of dough but put it this way- it's going to wreak havoc inside your body and I recommend avoiding the majority of these at all costs.

For special treats nothing beats homemade donuts made with real ingredients that have purpose. Enjoy!

Maple Glazed Donuts


1 cup almond flour

¼ cup coconut flour

1 tablespoon arrowroot flour

3 large, organic eggs

⅓ cup pure maple syrup (or liquid sweetener of choice)

3 tablespoons organic coconut oil

¼ cup unsweetened nut milk

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

½ teaspoon baking soda

¼ teaspoon sea salt


6 tablespoons organic cashew butter

3 tablespoon coconut oil

6 tablespoons pure maple syrup

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


1) Grease a stainless steel donut pan with coconut oil and set the oven to 350°F. 

2) In a large mixing bowl, add all the dry ingredients and whisk together until combined.

3) Next, in a medium mixing bowl, add all the wet ingredients and mix.

4) Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until fully incorporated. 

5) Pipe the dough into the donut cavities until they’re about ¾ full. Bake the donuts for 20-23 minutes or until they’re golden and a toothpick comes out clean when inserted.

6) Wait until the donuts have cooled to remove them from the pan. While they are cooling, prepare the maple glaze.

7) Add all the ingredients in a bowl and stir vigorously until combined with no lumps.

8) Carefully dip each cooled donut in the glaze and let set. Store in the refrigerator.
