Ingredients (serves 10)

220g coconut flour

2tsp Splenda

1tsp baking powder

0.25tsp salt

4 eggs

50ml coconut oil

100ml unsweetened almond milk

½tsp vanilla extract

6tbsp canola oil

4tbsp unsweetened dried coconut


Preheat the oven to 180°C and grease a doughnut tray with a small knob of butter. In a bowl, mix the coconut flour, sweetener, baking powder and salt.

Stir in eggs, coconut oil, almond milk, vanilla and sweetener until batter is smooth.

Fill wells in the tray about two-thirds full. Bake for 15 minutes until just set and slightly brown on the edge and allow to cool completely. In a frying pan, add half an inch of canola oil and heat over medium heat.

Add five doughnuts at a time to the pan, cook for one minute, then flip over for another minute. Remove from pan and dip into coconut coating, then allow to cool.

To make the coconut coating, combine toasted coconut and powdered sweetener in a bowl.
