Choc Orange Donuts

Uncategorized Nov 17, 2020

Who said you can't eat donuts when you're eating healthy?! Buy yourself a donut tray and BAKE your donuts (using natural, whole food ingredients of course, lol). They are delish! I like using Pana Hazelnut & Chocolate spread on the donuts, but you could also make your own icing, or eat the donut plain.

This recipe is approved for our Adrenal Healing Nutrition Plan post the 2-Week Blood Sugar Reset. 



  • large eggs
  • tablespoon orange zest
  • 2/3 cup coconut oil melted
  • teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • dash salt
  • cups gluten-free flour (I use Bakers Magic)
  • 2 tsp xanthum gum 
  • Optional: Pana Hazelnut & Chocolate Spread and orange zest


  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius. Grease a donut tray.
  • In a mixer, add all wet ingredients, including zest.
  • Mix on low until blended.
  • Add dry ingredients and mix together on low speed. 
  • Drop a dollop of dough into each donut ring and spread the dough evenly in the rings.
  • Cook for 10 minutes, or until donuts are cooked through.
  • Remove from donut maker to cooling rack.
  • Frost with some Pana Hazelnut & Chocolate spread and more orange zest, or enjoy plain.
