Paleo Doughnuts

Last Friday was National Doughnut Day!  I kept seeing different paleo doughnut recipes that were posted on Facebook and I got inspired to try my own recipe.  I brought the doughnuts to my school's end of the year party and everyone loved them!!  I am a sucker for cinnamon sugar, but the chocolate glaze was a HUGE hit!!  

Paleo Doughnuts

1 cup almond flour
1/2 cup + 2 tbsp cup coconut flour
2 eggs
1 heaping tsp vanilla
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp almond milk/coconut milk (original flavor)
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
olive oil spray
doughnut pan 

Preheat oven to 350
Mix all wet ingredients in a small bowl (eggs, vanilla, honey, water, milk)
Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl (almond flour, coconut flour, salt, baking soda)
Combine wet ingredients and dry ingredients
Stir until lump free
Grease a doughnut pan with olive oil spray
Spoon the batter into a large plastic bag and cut the tip (to make a pastry bag)
Squeeze the batter from the bag in a neat circle, into the doughnut pan 

Bake for 18 minutes or until the top and edges are brown.

Chocolate Glaze:
1/2 bag enjoy life chocolate chips (melted)
2 tbsp coconut oil (melted)
Mix ingredients together in a small bowl and dip the top of the cooled doughnuts into the glaze.  

Cinnamon Sugar:
1/4 cup coconut palm sugar
1 tbsp cinnamon 
1/2 cup coconut oil (melted)
Mix the coconut palm sugar and cinnamon on a small plate
Pour the melted coconut oil onto a small plate
Dip the top of the cooled doughnuts into the oil and then into the cinnamon sugar mixture.
