For making these Cinnamon Vanilla Donuts I used all HEALTHY ingredients – whole grain flour, maple syrup, and coconut oil, and I used spices – vanilla and Ceylon cinnamon to give donuts this amazing flavor and scent. In takes just about 15 minutes in the oven, and donuts are ready for coating with my favorite raw dark chocolate. 

This time I decorated these donuts with colorful sprinkles, but you can sprinkle these with shredded coconut, carob, poppy seeds or ground nuts. The options are numerous.

  1. I love sprinkle-covered donuts. You’ve just settled it – I’m going to make some this weekend! Nice work on reducing all the unhealthy fats, could definitely do with some of that in my life.

  2. You could fool anyone into thinking that these were normal donuts because they don’t look healthy at all! By the look of them Im pretty sure they don’t taste healthy either! They look amazing!

    • Thank you Bethany 😉 They have passed the ultimate kid test, and my kid is a super picky eater. He noticed nothing “strange” in the taste. He even thought that I bought them in McDonalds 🙂

  3. Oh my… Cinnamon, Vanilla – all the good stuff!
    Thanks for the recipe! Definitely trying this out on a weekend!

  4. I love cinnamon doughnuts! A bonus these are healthier than a standard one! These look delicious! 🙂

  5. Carnival time sounds like the most fun time! 🙂 I’m glad that you created a way for us all to enjoy along with you, but without the guilt of traditional carnival food. These donuts look simply perfect, Natalie! The chocolate glaze is all that I need right now… well, on top of like 2 dozen donuts. 😉 I’m so happy that you got the donut pan on time to create these cinnamon vanilla delights. Can’t wait to see what donuts you create for the winter holiday season! 🙂 Pinning, of course!

  6. These look SO yummy!!

    Posto nemam ovakve modle sta mi predlazete kao alternativu? Kako ispeci ove divne krofne?

    • Rekli su da se može napraviti smjesa pa istisnuti u obliku krafnice sa rupom na papir za pečenje i tako peči. Kažu da im je tako uspjelo. Iskreno, ja nisam probala…


  9. Hello, I am wondering if these needed to be refrigerated?

    • I keep them on my kitchen table, covered with foil or in airtight box. No need to keep them refrigerated. Just don’t keep them on high heat, like direct sunlight.
