This easy baked banana donuts recipe is made with cassava flour and almond butter, sweetened with maple syrup and baked in a silicone donut pan.  These healthy donuts are Paleo and Vegan friendly.




  • 1/2 cup mashed banana (125g)
  • 1/2 cup almond butter (unsweetened, salted)
  • 1/2 cup almond milk (unsweetened)
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup cassava flour (72g) spooned & leveled
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp salt


  • 1/4 cup coconut cream
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1-2 Tbsp tapioca flour



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine wet ingredients.  This includes the mashed banana, almond butter, almond milk, maple syrup, apple cider vinegar and vanilla.
  3. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients.  This includes the cassava flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.
  4. Pour the dry mixture into the wet mixture.  Stir with a spatula until well combined.  The batter is some-what thick and goopy.
  5. Spoon the batter into a silicone donut pan, nearly to the top (making 7 donuts).  Place the donut pan on a baking sheet.
  6. Place the donuts in the oven and bake at 350 degrees F for 25 minutes.
  7. Remove donuts from oven, cool in pan for 5 minutes, then cool on a wire cooling rack to room temperature.


  1. Combine all icing ingredients in a small bowl (just slightly larger than the donuts).  Whisk until smooth, adding more tapioca flour as needed.
  2. Dip the cooled donuts in the icing, covering the entire top half of the donuts.  OR, spread the icing over the donuts.
  3. Add desired toppings such as shredded coconut, cinnamon, bee pollen, naturally colored sprinkles, chopped nuts...


For best results, measure ingredient by weight (when given).

Donuts best stored in a sealed, air-tight container in the fridge up to one week.
