Ingredients

Donuts

  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract 
  • 2 scoops (2 tbsp) collagen powder

Glaze

  • 6 strawberries, chopped
  • 2 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp raw honey 
  • ¼ cup crushed freeze-dried strawberries, optional

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a 6-count silicone donut pan with cooking spray. Set aside.

2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda and salt. Add remaining donut ingredients and whisk until smooth.

3. Spoon or pipe batter into donut pan. Bake until light in color and donuts spring back when pressed, about 20 minutes. Let donuts cool in pan for 15 minutes. Then, carefully remove from the mold (run a knife around the edges if needed) and place on a wire rack to cool.

4. Meanwhile, prepare glaze: To a small saucepan, add strawberries, oil and honey; heat on medium for 3 minutes, until strawberries start to break down. Remove from heat and set aside to cool for 5 minutes. Transfer to a blender and purée until smooth. Spread on top of each donut and garnish with freeze- dried berries (if using). Set aside to cool to room temperature.

NOTE: If following our Meal Plan, freeze 4 donuts; thaw when called for. Store remaining donuts in an airtight container.
