These should be called Honey-NOT Donuts.

They have all of the delicious sweet and nutty flavor of that much-loved breakfast cereal, but with none of the heavy sugar and extra calories.

These donuts are grain-free, dairy-free, sugar-free, and incredibly delicious.

Sit back and enjoy one (or two, I won’t tell) with your morning coffee.




1.5 cups of coconut flour

1 teaspoon of baking powder

¼ teaspoon of sea salt

6 eggs

½ cup of Sukrin Syrup Gold

2 teaspoons of vanilla

½ cup of coconut oil



¼ cup flaked or sliced almonds

1 Tablespoon butter

2 teaspoons Sukrin Syrup Gold




Pre-heat oven to 350° F

Place the coconut oil, Sukrin Syrup Gold, and vanilla extract into a saucepan and melt over medium heat, stirring to combine.

Place the coconut flour and baking powder into a mixing bowl.

Add the melted ingredients and mix well until smooth.

Place aside for 10 minutes to thicken, this mixture will remain quite wet so don’t panic.

Grease your donut pan very well. These donuts do tend to stick, even in a non-stick pan.

Pour ¼ cup of batter into each donut hole and bake for 20 minutes.

While the donuts are baking, dry toast the almonds in a pan until they are golden and fragrant.

My donut pan is a standard sized, six-hole pan so I had to bake mine in two batches.

Once cooked, allow to cool until just warm and then gently ease around each donut with a silicone spatula.

Turn out onto a cooling rack.

Melt the butter in a microwave proof jug or bowl and add the additional Sukrin Syrup Gold.

Mix together and then brush over the donuts as a glaze.

Add the toasted almonds to the remaining glaze and stir.

Spoon almond mix over each donut.

Store, in an airtight container, for up to one week
