Recipe: Grain Free Baked Almond Donuts

Easy Four Ingredient Healthy Baked Donuts Recipe | healthy, low fat, gluten free, no butter, no oil, clean eating friendly, refined sugar free, dairy free, low calorie

Do you ever have one of those days where you just need a donut? 

I most certainly do...... in fact, I've been having one of those weeks. But when you're a coeliac with a million and one food intolerances you can't just go down to the local donut shop and pick one up - and really,  I don't know that I would anyway as I like to know what I'm putting into my body!

On one of my "need a donut days" I decided to whip up a super quick batch of donuts between work projects. One problem though; I was super limited on ingredients.

But when this girl wants donuts, she's going to have them, so I improvised and accidentally created the easiest most awesome donuts ever

So awesome that they're healthy, gluten free, have no oil and no butter, are refined sugar free and use just four ingredients. Can you get anymore awesome than that?!

This recipe makes a simple batch of healthy but oh so delicious donuts, however, over the coming weeks I'll be showing you different ways to take this basic recipe and turn it into the greatest party in your mouth. I'm talking frostings, toppings, mix ins - you name it! It's like a gift that keeps on giving ;)

And because I know there's got to be other donut fans out there, I decided, because I love donuts you all so much; I want to make your favourite donuts. 

So feel free to hit the contact button at the bottom of this post or leave a comment with your healthy donut requests!

But first, let me give you the recipe for these donuts! >>

Yield: 8-10 donuts

Healthy Paleo Almond Donuts Recipe

With just four ingredients, these Healthy Almond Baked Donuts could not be easier! They are also low fat (with no added butter or oil!), gluten free, clean eating friendly, refined sugar free, paleo, grain free, low carb and absolutely delicious!
prep time: 10 minscook time: 15 minstotal time: 25 mins



  1. Preheat your oven to 150C/300F
  2. Grease your donut pan and set aside.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, mix together all of your ingredients until smooth.
  4. Fill your donut pans with your mixture, filling each donut cavity 1/2 way full.
  5. Bake for 10-15 minutes, keeping an eye on them and taking them out as soon as your donuts are cooked and a skewer inserted into the middle removes clean. Be sure not to overcook them as they'll dry out!
  6. Allow to cool before removing from the tins and eating as is or topping with whatever your heart desired (stay tuned for more recipes!)
  7. These donuts will keep in the fridge or at room temperature for 3-4 days stored in an airtight container. If you live in a really humid climate I'd suggest keeping them in the fridge so that they last longer, however, they will keep fine at room temperature if it's not too hot!


**If you like things sweeter, use 1/4 cup to 1/3 cup honey. These donuts are lightly sweetened so you can top them with whatever your heart desires!

But tell me, what's your favourite kind of donut?
And what's one thing that's always guaranteed to make a bad/hectic/crazy day better?
For me it's spending time with my husband, family or friends - especially if said time involves comfy pjs, warm blankets, tea and a good movie or tv show!

  1. I'm going to try this recipe tonight and add cinnamon to the mixture. Thanks for sharing it :) my favourite nights are those snuggling up in bed with my partner watching our favourite tv series too!

  2. I've been baking up doughnuts like crazy <3

  3. What can I use if I don't have a doughnut pan?

  4. Hi there, you can just bake them in a muffin tin! They'll still taste delicious but they won't be donuts. Just adjust the baking time depending on the size of your tin.

  5. Sounds like a plan, Sarah! I hope you loved them! xx

  6. Oh GREAT idea. I have a mini muffin tin that will be perfect...thank you!!

  7. They were AMAZING and did not last very long and even my toughest critic loved them! I am going to play around with this recipe a bit just to add different flavours like mini chocolate chips or cocoa for chocolate ones or chopped walnuts YUMMY! I just love recipes that are simple, quick, and not too many ingredients! Thanks again Kristy! :)

  8. These donuts are great! I like that they are packed with protein. I have been making them for a few years now. Thank you for the recipe.

  9. So easy to make and absolutely delicious! I didn't have vanilla extract and added ground cinnamon instead. Definitely making these again and adding toppings :) Thank you for this awesome recipe!

  10. The recipe makes 8-10 donuts and my pan makes 6. I guess I'll need to get another donut pan!

    1. Hi there! It actually depends on the size of your donut pan. If it's a larger pan, 6 donuts may be all you need. Alternatively you can use a mini muffin tin to use up the rest of the batter :)

  11. Can these be made without the honey or substitutes. Those ingredients aren’t on my diet yet for candida

    1. Hi there, you can try but I don't know how they would hold together or taste

  12. Hello! This may be a dumb question but I’ve never made donuts before and these look amazing! How do you pipe them in a donut pan?

    1. Hi there, you don't need to pipe them - you can just fill the donut wells with batter using a spoon - or you can use a piping bag to make it easier/less mess if you prefer. Just pipe or fill them til they're about 3/4 full.

  13. Hi there! Thank you so much for this recipe! I, too, am a donut lover (dessert lover) and have food sensitivities, so I was so excited to try this recipe! All I can say is DELICIOUS! The fact that it's healthy and only has 4 ingredients is even better! I look forward to finding more of your recipes!

  14. Thank you for this simple and easy to follow recipe! I made these today with monk fruit sweetener so they would be keto friendly 🩷🩵💜 they were a perfect Father’s Day Treat!
    I topped mine with a blend of chocolate protein powder mixed with 1-2 TBSP of heavy cream-so good
