  • 1/4 cup of coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup of orange juice freshly squeezed preferably

  • 2-4 tablespoons of orange zest* preferably from unwaxed oranges, or sub with 2 teaspoons of orange extract
  • 8 tablespoons of honey

  • 1 1/4 cups of almond flour
  • 1 1/4 cups of gluten-free flour blend or regular flour if gluten isn't a concern
  • 2 heaped teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda

For the optional syrup:

  • 3 tablespoons of orange juice freshly squeezed or from a carton
  • 3 tablespoons of honey or your chosen sweetener)
  • Extra orange zest


For the donuts:

  • Preheat your oven to 350f
  • Melt the coconut oil then add the orange juice to the same bowl, along with the almond milk, orange zest, honey, vanilla, salt, and ground almonds.
  • Sift in the flour, baking powder, and baking soda.
  • Mix everything thoroughly, and add a splash more milk if the mixture seems too dry.
  • Transfer the mixture into donut molds in a donut pan.
  • Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes until the donuts have risen and a skewer inserted into them comes out clean.

For the syrup:
