For the optional strawberry buttercream

  • 1/2 cup vegan butter or fair trade palm shortening , room temperature - may sub with ghee or regular unsalted butter if not dairy-free
  • 5 tbsp pure maple syrup  , may sub with sugar-free maple syrup or honey if desired
  • 1/2 cup freeze-dried strawberries , about 3 tablespoons when ground into a powder
  • chopped grain-free cookies , optional for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 6 cavity silicone donut pan for regular-sized donuts (can also use a 12 count mini donut pan or muffin tin) and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, almond milk, coconut oil, vanilla and sweetener, until smooth and combined. 
Add the baking powder, baking soda and salt. Place a large fine mesh sieve over the bowl and sift in the almond flour and coconut flour. Stir until combined. Fold in the chopped strawberries.

  4. BAKE in preheated oven for 17-21 minutes (depending on your oven) or until donuts are set. Allow to cool for at least 30 minutes before topping with the buttercream.

  5. Make the optional buttercream: Add freeze dried strawberries to a blender or food processor and blend until it becomes a powder. Add the butter and maple syrup and blend on high for a few minutes until creamy and smooth.

    Frost the cooled donuts and place on a cooling rack to set. Garnish with chopped grain-free cookies (For store-bought, we like Hu's Kitchen or Simple Mills) if desired.
