Sprint to your kitchen and get ready to bake up a storm, because these Paleo Apple No-Cider Donuts are about to change your life. Don’t be fooled by the word “paleo” – although these are gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, and refined sugar-free, they are absolutely delicious and will remind you of your favorite childhood treat.
Can I be honest and say that there’s nothing better than apple cider in the fall?! It’s one of my favorite things about this time of year. A mug full of warm apple cider on a cool Bay Area day, preferably with a pumpkin-flavored treat in-hand… it truly doesn’t get better than that! These donuts are the epitome of fall to me because they have that delicious apple cider flavor, minus the cider part! To create the apple flavor, we’re using applesauce and Apple Pie Spice, and trust me when I say that the flavor is spot-on.
Donuts have a warm place in my heart. Some of my fondest childhood memories involve them. For me, a lot of my recipes are inspired by nostalgia, and that’s because food is super comforting! I want to show you that you can enjoy all of your favorite, nostalgic, comforting foods, but in a way that’s gentler on our bodies! I’m a big believer that healthy food doesn’t have to mean boring, and comfort food doesn’t have to mean unhealthy. These donuts are the perfect testament to that!
In a few simple steps, these donuts can and will be yours. Don’t say I didn’t warn you if you want to eat the whole pan!
I recommend storing these donuts in an air tight container in the refrigerator. They will stay fresh for up to one week. You can also freeze them for up to 3 months. When you are ready to enjoy them, simply allow to defrost at room temperature and then warm them up to your desired temperature.
