Healthy Gingerbread Donuts
**This is a sponsored post and also includes affiliate links. I received the donut pans from Zulay Kitchens. All opinions are my own.
Ingredients for 9 donuts:
1/2 cup almond flour
1 cup gluten free flour blend
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 tsp gingerbread spice
1/3 cup xylitol
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp lemon juice
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 Tbsp honey
1/4 cup molasses
First of all, thanks so much to Zulay Kitchen for providing these donut pans. I have been wanting to get some donut pans so I was really excited to receive these. These pans are reasonably priced and the no-stick feature makes it so easy to get the donuts out of the pan! They have a store on their website but they also have an Amazon store where you can find these donut pans. Zulay is also one of the sponsors for our giveaway so be sure to scroll down and enter the giveaway!
Preheat the oven to 350°.
Add the lemon juice to the almond milk and stir. Let it sit while you are mixing the other ingredients. (You are making “buttermilk”)
Mix all of the dry ingredients (almond flour through xylitol) in a large bowl.
In a small bowl slightly beat the egg. Then add the vanilla, honey and molasses. Stir to mix well. Then add the milk and stir to mix.
Add the wet ingredients to the bowl with the dry ingredients. Mix until well combined.
Use a ladle or fill a measuring cup to add the batter to the pan. Fill about ¾ of the way for each donut. Place pans in oven and cook for 12-15 minutes.
Remove from oven and let the donuts cool in pan for about 10 minutes. Remove to a wire rack to cool completely.

I just got a donut pan this summer and my kids really enjoy homemade donuts. I can’t wait to try these gingerbread donuts.
MMMMm, I love anything with gingerbread spices, and these donuts look absolutely amazing! I can’t wait to try the recipe. Just need to get one of those clever donut pans first!

Such a wonderful and healthy donuts recipe! Do you think I could also prepare the recipe with erythritol?
Cyna, xylitol is a 1:1 substitute for sugar. I believe you would have to use slightly more erythritol to match it. Or you could also use coconut sugar.
Healthy gingerbread donuts? Well, this donut loving gal is doing a happy dance!
Gingerbread donuts are perfect for the holidays. I think I have a donut pan (haven’t used it in a long time) that I should put to use and make this. Pinned
Roseann, these look delicious and delightful! Love gingerbread. And thank you for hosting #BloggersPitStop. I hope lots of visitors will like my Pumpkin Nut Bread / Tea Loaf. I’m going to check out that donut pan.
