Donut Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cup almond flour
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil melted
  • 1 large egg room temp
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp almond milk


  • 4 oz fat free cream cheese
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil melted
  • food coloring (I used neon pink & red)


  • Preheat oven to 350° and grease donut try (I highly suggest these awesome silicone donut trays from Amazon). Combine almond flour, baking powder, ginger, cinnamon, coconut sugar and salt into a medium size bowl.
  • Combine melted coconut oil, egg, vanilla extract, maple syrup and allmond milk into a seperate bowl and whisk together well.
  • Add wet ingredients to dry. Mix until batter is smooth and there are no almond flour clumps. (If it's thin and liquidy - that's okay)
  • Take a spoon and distribute batter evenly into each of the 6 muffin cavities. Place in oven for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • While donuts bake - soften cream chesse for 30 seconds in microwave then add 1 tsp vanilla extract. Melt coconut oil and add to cream cheese and vanilla mixture. Mix well until there are no lumps. (You can use a hand mixer but not necessary)
  • When donuts are done baking let cool. Once cool pop them out of donut tray and let cool more on cooling rack. Once completely cool - add icing.
  • For white icing - spread cream cheese mixture directly onto donut
    For pink icing - add 2-3 drops of neon pink food coloring to cream cheese mixture
    For red icing - add 3-4 drops of red food coloring to pink cream cheese mixture
  • Once donuts have been iced add sprinkles of your choice and enjoy! Store in an air-tight container for up to 5 days or store in refrigerator.
