Cinnamon Sugar Almond Flour Donuts

We’ve collabed with our friend Lauren before and she is always down for a delicious healthier treat. Donuts are one of our fall favorites, so when she called saying she had gotten a super cute donut mold, we were super excited to indulge in these baked goodies!
Cinnamon Sugar Almond Flour Donuts, adapted from Roost (makes 6 donuts)
1 1/4 cup almond flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
3 eggs
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted
2 tablespoons honey
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350F. Whisk all dry ingredients together in a bowl, then transfer them to a blender. Combine all wet ingredients in a bowl, then pour them into the blender. Blend until batter is very smooth. Pour batter into greased donut molds, filling them about 2/3 the way. Bake for 10 minutes and allow to cool on a baking rack.
Cinnamon-Sugar Topping
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

The cinnamon sugar mixture needs something to grab onto (we know this because we forgot to add anything). To make sure your topping stays on, melt the butter in a sauté pan, and in a small bowl, mix sugar and cinnamon together. Once the butter is melted, remove pan from heat and lightly dip each donut in the butter, then in the cinnamon sugar.
And enjoy 🙂
