  1. Serves:12-15
  2. Time: Prep 15 min., Cook 10-12 min.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 ½ cup almond flour
  • ½ cup tapioca flour
  • 2 scoops chai collagen
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin spice
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 pastured eggs
  • ½ cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup coconut milk
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil or melted butter
  • MAPLE GLAZE
  • ½ cup coconut butter
  • 2-4 tbsp maple syrup
  • 4-6 tbsp non-dairy milk to thin out glaze

DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 375 F degrees.
  • In a large mixing bowl or stand mixer , combine the almond flour, tapioca flour, collagen powder, baking powder, pumpkin spice, cinnamon and salt. Mix until combined.
  • In a smaller mixing bowl, add the eggs, pure maple syrup, vanilla extract, and coconut milk. Using a hand mixer, blend ingredients until smooth.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry, and blend all ingredients with your mixer until smooth.
  • Add your softened coconut oil to the batter, and blend again until all ingredients are combined evenly.
  • Liberally grease your donut pan with coconut oil, and spoon about a cup of batter into a ziplock bag.
  • Snip one of the corners off of the ziplock bag, and pipe the batter into the donut mold. More batter makes a fluffy donut, but you will have less total donuts. Filling the molds ¾ full will yield about 12-15 donuts.
  • Smooth the tops of the batter by carefully banging the donut pan on the counter, and smoothing any uneven spots with a spoon or your finger.
  • Bake the donuts for 12 minutes, making sure to check then after 8-10 minutes. Remove donuts from oven, and allow to cool on a wire rack.
  • Grease donut pan again, if you did not make them all in one batch and repeat.
  • While the donuts are cooling, make your maple glaze. Warm the coconut butter until it softens. Mix all of the glaze ingredients in a small bowl and whisk together.
  • Once donuts are completely cool, dip them into the glaze. It helps to have the glaze in a shallow bowl to dip to donut. Place donuts in the fridge for a few minutes to help the frostings set before serving.
