Paleo, GAPs, & AIP Doughnuts!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, all of those exclamation marks are me screaming at the top of my lungs. VIIIICCCTOOOORIEEEEEEE!!!!

Yet at the same time, it’s a little bit of a “how sad” moment. Here I am dealing with diets that heal, and I can do is get giddy over a doughnut… Oh well. Guilt moment gone and back to happy. Anyone on restricted diet can tell you, it’s hard. Sometimes, you just really wan to break free and have that ice cream or cake. Well, now there are doughnuts. The best part is, this recipe is NUT FREE. So many Paleo & GAPs diets call for nuts, where it’s not allowed on AIP. Not only that, but there are folks like me that are allergic to many nuts, and can’t tolerate the rest. So, here it is.

Now, before you read this, please remember that it’s a doughnut. It’s a “sugary” treat, and not meant for consuming everyday. I say this because there may be some people who are a bit shell shocked by the amount of maple sugar used. Remember, it’s a yummy doughnut 🙂

Fun question: Do you like to spell it as Donut or Doughnut?

Directions:
Combine all of the doughnut ingredients together in a stand mixer using a wire whisk. Transfer to a piping bag to make it easier to pour into your doughnut maker. If you have a safe non-stick spray, be sure to use it. If not, your treats may be a little torn, but trust me, that’s a-OK.

For the chocolate glaze, combine everything into a small mixing bowl and whisk until smooth. For the maple glaze, all you need to do is open a jar 🙂 For both glazes, we opted to put them into a shallow bowl and dunk the doughnuts in. You could also use a piping bag for controlled decor, but the glazes are runny in nature.

    Can you use 1/2 cup coconut flour and 1/2 cup cassava? My son is allergic to nuts so almond flour is out and I don’t have tiger nut. You said leave out the flax for AIP, so is it not necessary in the recipe?
    Also, where are the instructions? I see ingredients and pictures but no instructions. Thanks!

    • Hello 🙂
      I would start with the cassava, add the other ingredients, then add your coconut flour 1 TBSP at a time until the right consistency has formed. Coconut flour absorbs liquid at a different rate, and recipes that use coconut flour require less of it.

      The flax in this recipe is the egg/binder. On AIP, seeds are not allowed. It means that while they can make the doughnuts, they will have a tendency to crumble. However, as any of know when following AIP, we’re cool with crumble. If you can have flax, be sure to include it.

      For the instructions, sorry about that. Guess I was too excited when writing this blog. Simply mix all of the ingredients together, then place the liquid batter into a piping bag. We used a baby cakes doughnut maker machine. We opted to use a non-stick spray.

      If there’s anything else we can help you with, don’t hesitate to get in touch. Have an awesome Tuesday.
