Have you ever craved a donut or muffin but didn’t want to deal with the blood sugar spike and inevitable energy crash that comes after eating one? Us too, so that’s why we made these low-sugar, baked paleo donuts as a healthier option to enjoy.
These grain-free, paleo donuts make a great snack or breakfast on the go. They’re completely free of any refined sugar at all – in fact, we even kept them free of any healthier versions of sweeteners too such as maple syrup or honey. Instead we’ve sweetened these with nothing but whole fruit, which makes them not quite as sweet as most baked goods that you’re used to, but the low-sugar content was exactly what we wanted for these. We wanted a nourishing snack that wouldn’t spike our blood sugar, and the nutrient-dense ingredients in these donuts like the almond flour and juicy blueberries help to prevent just that.
We baked these in a donut pan, but if you don’t have one, you can make these into delicious muffins instead! If using a muffin pan, add a few extra minutes to the baking time and just keep an eye on them in the oven. Enjoy!
