This healthy gingerbread donuts recipe is made with almond flour and topped with a dark chocolate glaze.  These donuts are paleo, gluten free and dairy free.



Gingerbread Donuts

Chocolate Glaze

  • 3 oz dark chocolate chips
  • 2 tsp coconut oil
  • 1/2 Tbsp molasses (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease a silicone donut pan with avocado oil and place it on a baking sheet.
  2. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine all dry ingredients for the donuts.  This includes the almond flour, tapioca flour, baking powder, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.
  3. Mix in the wet ingredients for the donuts.  This includes the egg, avocado oil, maple syrup, molasses, vanilla and water.  Whisk batter until smooth.
  4. Pour the batter into the greased donut pan.
  5. Place the donuts in the oven and bake at 350 degrees for 12-14 minutes.
  6. Remove donuts from oven and cool in pan for 5 minutes.  Then transfer the donuts to a wire cooling rack.
  7. Make the chocolate glaze: place the chocolate chips and coconut oil in a small saucepan.  Melt on the stove top, over low heat, stirring frequently.
  8. Once melted, turn off the heat and mix in the molasses, cinnamon and ginger.
  9. Dip the cooled donuts into the chocolate glaze.  Optional: top with sprinkles.
  10. Place the donuts in the fridge for a few minutes, allowing the chocolate to fully set.


For best results, measure ingredients by weight, when given.  I use a small kitchen scale when baking.
