GF-Paleo Donut Holes

Since I started posting my food experimentations in Instragram and FB, I was asked by a lot of my friends to share the recipes. And a lot of times I promised that I will blog about them. Too bad I am too busy and too lazy to blog about it, especially when I am too hungry to eat my dish right away. But I'm not gonna lie, I'm not good at remembering how I cooked the dish because most of the time, I just threw in whatever ingredients I found in my fridge and whatever available seasonings I have on hand. However, most of my experimental dishes are pretty much the same. They only vary in main ingredient so I can surely come up with some recipes to blog soon. I only need to find time to do it, though.

Anyway, this Gluten Free-Paleo Donut Muffins that I made last week was based on the recipe I found in Pinterest which is actually a donut recipe. I liked it because it's healthy and gluten-free and most of all not fried but baked. So I took it and modified it and instead of making donuts, I made muffins. And the result was heavenly!

Well, I am not really a donut junkie and since I turned Gluten Free last year, donuts are not in my list of comfort food. But when I found this recipe, it gave me a whole new perspective in snacking. The first time I tried this recipe, I made muffins because I forgot that I have a cake pops maker. So for the second time around, I used my cake pops maker and the result was not disappointing.

So here you go friends, as promised... my Gluten-Free-Paleo Donut Holes or Muffins

Gluten Free-Paleo Donut Holes
Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups blanched Almond Flour
4 jumbo eggs or 5 medium eggs
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. kosher salt
3 tbs. maple syrup (or agave)
1 tbs. cinnamon
Preparation:
1. Mix all ingredients in the mixing bowl.
2. Pour batter into the cake pops maker (or donut maker, or donut circles in a pan) and fill almost to the edge then close the lid. It takes 3 minutes for the donut holes to cook in the cake pops maker or donut maker. Whisk the batter in between batches. If you prefer to bake in muffin tins, preheat oven to 300 degrees F.  Bake the donuts for 20 minutes or until the donuts turn brown.
3. Once cooked and cooled, you can sprinkle the donuts (or muffins) with sugar-cinnamon powder or drizzle with maple syrup or dip in chocolate sauce or top with ice cream. AND yes, you can also add your choice of fruits in the batter for added flavor and nutrients.
4. Enjoy with your love ones. And pass the recipe to your friends and family.

I will try make this again with added fruits and nuts and blog about it again next time. So come and visit again.
