YOU ARE WELCOME!!!
These little gems, are well, gems! Exactly!
I made them at 6:30 am (yes, I’m patting myself on the back) and they were done by 6:58am! That’s something to be proud of…why did I just tell you that?
Because you too can make these in the haze of the morning and share them with your loved ones…or not…hoard them and eat them in a closet. dare ya!
But for reals. Super simply recipe with items I know you already have in your pantry and refrigerator.
Plus, they are PALEO! Winning!
As you know I’m on a kick of finding the very best baked goods that are Paleo friendly. These have made the list.
What I love, is that flavors are changeable.
I found the inspiration for this recipe here…Kelsey’s Blog ‘Little Bits of’ REAL FOOD & REAL TALK….yep, both are things that I totally love. In her donut recipe, she used lemon and blueberry…since I didn’t have any fresh blueberries – I opted for strawberries and some dried thyme…and some lemon and some maple syrup…because I can’t stop with that kind of goodness 🙂
Strawberry Thyme with Lemon Donuts
Makes 8 donuts…so just double the recipe, because you will want/need more 🙂
- 1 cup blanched almond flour
- ⅛ teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon kosher coarse salt
- 2 tablespoons real maple syrup
- ½ cup full fat coconut milk
- 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
- 1 egg, room temperature
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1 teaspoon lemon zest
- 3 strawberries, cut into small pieces
- Preheat the oven to 350°F and spray a donut pan with coconut oil spray. Place the pan in oven while it is preheating.
- Mix together the blanched almond flour, baking soda and salt and set aside.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together the honey, coconut milk, coconut oil, egg, vanilla, thyme and lemon zest. Using a rubber spatula, mix the wet and dry ingredients together. Do not over mix.
- Scoop batter into a large ziplock bag and cut the tip of the bag with scissors. Remove pan from the oven. Squeeze batter into the donut pan – filing each form about 3/4 of the way. Place a strawberries in each form – around 5-7 in each and press down slightly.
- Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 15 minutes. Set pan over a wire rack to cool. Wait until donuts are cooled, then remove from pan. **if they are still hot or warm, they may break apart when removing from the pan – so important to let them cool.
