  • 2 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 1 cup tapioca flour
  • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp aluminum-free baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground allspice
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • 2 large eggs choose free range
  • 1 cup grated carrots
  • 1 cup grated apple I used Gala apples but Pink Lady or other sweet, red apples will also work
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup honey choose local and unpasteurized for maximum nutritional benefits
  • 1 tbsp organic vanilla extract


  1. Preheat your oven to 350F

  2. Add all of the ingredients to your standing mixer

  3. Mix on low until blended well

  4. Spoon the batter into your silicone donut molds and spread until even (you want each donut mold to be about 3/4 full)

  5. Place in the oven and cook for 20-22 minutes (or until a toothpick inserted inside comes out clean)

  6. Remove from the oven and let cool

  7. Add the icing (Use my Paleo Honey Glaze recipe)

  8. Serve and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

You can also eat these donuts for breakfast or as a snack. They also store well in the freezer if you don't eat them all.
