Choc-Mint Grain-Free Donuts

Jan 04, 2023
Filly is holding the Donut and her right eye looking through the middle hole.

We (as in Chris, lol) recently planted a new herb garden and it’s going gang-busters! We - including the kids - try to include the herbs in whatever we can. The other day I started making some grain-free donuts, and Poppy (10yo) came running in with a bunch of freshly picked mint. “Can we make the donuts choc-mint flavour Mum?” And so we did :)



  • 3 eggs, separated
  • ¼ tsp cream of tartar
  • 100g almond meal
  • 60g cashew meal
  • 50g raw cacao powder
  • ¼ tsp fine sea salt
  • ¼ tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 30g coconut oil
  • 60g pure maple syrup
  • 10 fresh mint leaves, diced thinly



  • Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease a 12-hole donut tray with coconut oil or oil of your choice.
  • Whisk/beat egg whites and cream of tartar in a mixing bowl until white a fluffy. 
  • In another bowl, add all other ingredients into mixing bowl and mix until well combined.
  • Spoon ⅓ of the egg white mixture into the remaining ingredients and fold in. 
  • Carefully fold remaining egg whites into batter, mixing gently until completely combine. Spoon mixture into donut tin until they are ¾ full.
  • Bake in oven for 12-15min, until cooked through.
