The donut addiction is real people. Actually, more like the donut-making addiction is real. There is something so satisfying by making homemade baked donuts at home. I can’t describe it but it’s almost this weird satisfaction knowing we can make something that is usually fried and super indulgent, so clean, healthy and still taste delicious.

These Paleo Almond Butter Cup Donuts do just that. They are made up of deliciously clean and good-for-you ingredients. They also take less than 20 minutes from start to finish to make. How easy is that? Also they are good for breakfast, snack, dessert, literally whatever you want them to be.

A lot of you write to me asking where I do my grocery shopping. And there really is no specific answer I can give you because sometimes it is Whole Foods. While other times it is Costco or Target. When it comes to a lot of my organic and health-food ingredients, Lucky Vitamin is the best.

Lucky Vitamin is an online health food store. Basically it is my heaven in an e-commerce store. They have over 35,000 health and wellness products ranging from vitamins, nutrition & herbs to healthy natural and organic foods,natural skin care & beauty, vegan, vegetarian & gluten free products, healthy home products at more. They also offer up to 75% off retail prices. Yup, you read that right. You can find your favorite items up to 75% off LESS than a typical grocery store.

And it gets better. Lucky Vitamin offers fast & free shipping (on orders over $49) and they have a 90 day happiness guarantee. So if you don’t like something after you have it, you can return it, no issues at all.

Plus if you follow their Instagram page, you can enter weekly giveaways that they do! You babes are going to love Lucky Vitamin, I know it.

I ordered all of my ingredients for these donuts from there (besides eggs obviously). You will need to order coconut oil, coconut flour, honey, dark chocolate chips and almond butter for these. That is IT. You will see the specific brands I used in the image below.

If you make these donuts, share them with me! Tag me on social media or leave a comment below. I cannot wait to hear what you think!

  1. Is coconut flour the cheapest at Lucky Vitamin cause you can get it at Costco too but if it’s cheaper at Lucky Vitamin, I would love to try that! 🙂

    These doughnuts… I have a doughnut pan that still needs to be used.

  2. Can the eggs be replaced by chia or flax eggs to make this vegan? I’m dying to try the recipe! Looks yummy! 🙂

    1. I’m also wondering if there is a possible replacement for the eggs as I am allergic but would love to make these!

  3. Do you think almond flour would work just as well? I haven’t baked enough with either almond or coconut flours to know what the differences might be… Thanks!
