Cinnamon Sugar may be one of my all time favorite flavor combinations. I don’t know if I just love the flavor on it’s own or more of what it represents. Whenever I smell cinnamon I immediately think of Fall days. I love everything associated with this time of year like the temperatures and the sweaters, but I especially adore the food.

I was never a huge donut gal, but there’s something special about a warm cup of coffee/tea with a fresh hot donut. Since I can’t eat the usual store bought donut, I’ve had to improvise and make my own. This recipe took a little more testing than I’m used to, but I was not about to give up on this delicious cinnamon sugar combo. I think this final recipe turned out perfectly. I hope you guys love it as much as I do!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups oat flour (you can make your own by blending 2 cups oats)

  • 1/3 cup coconut flour

  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder

  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon

  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

  • 1/4 cup applesauce

  • 1/4 cup almond milk

  • 1/4 cup maple syrup

  • 1 tbsp cinnamon (for the coating)

  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar (for the coating)

  • 2 tbsp coconut oil (for the coating)

Instructions

  1. Combine all the ingredients for the donut and mix well

  2. Add in the wet and mix well to create a thick batter

  3. Roll small balls from the batter and place on a non-stick baking sheet

  4. Bake for about 15-16 minutes or until they become golden brown

  5. While they bake, prep the coating: in one bowl melt the coconut oil and another mix the coconut sugar and cinnamon

  6. After the donut holes are fully baked and cooled, dip each one in a thin layer of coconut oil and then in the cinnamon sugar mix. Repeat this step for each ball

  7. Enjoy!

    Do you think it would yield the same result to sub almond flour for oat flour? Thank you!
