Things You Will Need for Healthy Apple Cider Donuts

Sunbeam FPSBMDM970 Multi Plate Dessert Maker, Yellow Multi Plate Dessert Maker

Dessert Maker

Part of what makes this recipe both easy and healthy is that you do not need to deep fry your donuts! All you need is a dessert/donut maker and you’re good to go.

A donut maker is going to cost you the same as a donut pan, but you can do much more with it. You can even make brownies with this!

It’s super easy since you just put the batter in it, close it and let it make your donuts for a few minutes.

Seriously the simplest way to make healthy and delicious donuts!





Viva Labs Organic Non-GMO and Gluten-Free Coconut Flour, 4 PoundOrganic Non-GMO and Gluten-Free Coconut FlourUnrefined Organic Coconut Flour

The only ingredient in this unrefined organic coconut flour is organic coconut– this is the other reason this is such a healthy recipe. You do not want to use white flour, you will lose the health benefits.

Unrefined coconut flour is an excellent source of fiber, protein, iron and health-promoting medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs). MCTs provide a source of rapidly-utilized energy and have been shown to assist with healthy weight management. Coconut flour is also naturally gluten free.

On top of all of that, it is naturally sweet and tastes amazing– making it the perfect alternative to white flour.


Some other things you will need are 100% pure & raw honey, coconut sugar and all natural apple cider.

Delicious and Easy Apple Cider Donuts for Clean Eating


Easy Apple Cider Donuts

  • ½ cup coconut flour
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ⅛ tsp sea salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp pure & raw honey
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • ½ cup warm all natural apple cider (the drink, not vinegar)

Sugar Coating

  • ½ cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon


  1. Turn donut maker on
  2. In a small bowl whisk together coconut flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt
  3. In separate medium bowl whisk together the eggs, oil and honey
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir to make a smooth dough
  5. Add the warm apple cider to the bowl and mix until fully incorporated into the dough
  6. Transfer the dough into a medium ziplock bag, and cut a 3/4 inch hole in one corner to create a piping bag.
  7. Pipe the batter into the doughnut maker, filling 2/3 of the way
  8. Let cook for about 8-10 minutes. These will take a little longer than usual because the batter is more of a wet batter.

  10. Toss the donuts in the cinnamon sugar mix
  11. Let donuts cool on a wire rack

    Can you use a donut pan for this? How long would you put them in the oven with a donut pan?
