Pumpkin, cinnamon, hot lattes, rain boots—fall, my favorite season! The time of year when the trees burst with color and the crisp morning air refreshes. Fall gives any excuse to add pumpkin and spices to everything! Rise and shine—may your kitchen be filled with sweet scents and buttery doughnuts this weekend. —Caroline Potter

What You'll Need
  • Doughnut Batter
  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 2 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup apple sauce
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Pinch nutmeg
  • Pinch cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • Cinnamon Glaze
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons raw honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter or oil a doughnut pan.
  2. Sift all dry ingredients together, removing any bumps. Whisk together eggs, apple sauce, and vinegar.
  3. Combine egg mixture with the flours and mix together. Set aside to allow the grain-free flours to soak up the liquids.
  4. In a small sauce pan, melt butter. Add butter to doughnut batter and mix thoroughly.
  5. Pour batter into doughnut mold, filling about 2/3 full. Bake for 12-14 minutes.
  6. Allow doughnuts to cool in the pan for a few minutes, then invert onto a cooling rack. Dip the doughnuts into the butter glaze and serve!
