Paleo Strawberry Mini Donuts with Chocolate & Strawberry Glaze

Best paleo donut recipe

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Ahhh Valentine’s Day, the day of love <3

Last year I made B a Grain-Free Pizza shaped like a heart…lol. He’s been my Valentine for 13 years running and I always make him a special Valentine’s day treat. Back in 2011 I made a raw, vegan Chocolate Strawberry Cake that was pretty awesome — avocados are used for the creamy chocolate frosting!

This year I couldn’t think of anything sexier than Strawberries and Dark Chocolate. And rather than simply dipping or drizzling strawberries with chocolate, why not bake fresh strawberries into a mini grain-free donut and top it off with a chocolate glaze?

I also came up with a really easy, wholesome pink strawberry glaze made with fresh and freeze dried strawberries. It’s fun to be able to create vibrant colors without using harmful, artificial coloring. The combination of the dark brown chocolate and the pretty pink strawberry turns out really fun and festive.

I hope that your Valentine’s Day is filled with love….and filled with Paleo Strawberry Mini Donuts!

For the Strawberry Glaze:

For the Mini Donuts:
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Generously grease a 12-mold mini donut pan with coconut oil.
  2. Combine the dry ingredients in a medium bowl. In another medium bowl combine all of the wet ingredients except egg whites and minced strawberries.
  3. Mix the wet with dry and set aside.
  4. Beat the egg whites until firm peaks form. Gently fold the egg whites into the batter. Fold in the minced strawberries.
  5. Use a piping bag to carefully fill each donut mold with batter. Do not overfill. The batter will make 36 mini donuts. Bake for 5 minutes until lightly golden.
  6. Allow the donuts to cool, remove from pan and then chill in the fridge for half an hour before frosting.
For the Chocolate Glaze:
  1. Fill a medium skillet with a few inches of water and place over medium-low heat. Place the glaze ingredients in a small saucepan and put the saucepan inside the skillet. Gently mix the ingredients until fully melted.
  2. Pour the melted chocolate into a shallow bowl. Dip each chilled donut in the chocolate, then immediately chill for 30 minutes until the glaze hardens.
For the Strawberry Glaze:
  1. Combine all of the strawberry glaze ingredients in a food processor or high speed blender. Pulse until completely pureed and uniformly pink. Pour the glaze into a shallow bowl. Dip each chilled donut in the glaze, then immediately chill for 30 minutes until the glaze hardens. If the glaze is not thin enough, then warm slightly to liquify the coconut oil.
  2. Store the glazed donuts in your fridge. Enjoy!

    So, I made strawberry donuts yay! And then I tried to make the strawberry glaze… Let me just say I don’t have a food processor but a nutribullet. And some how my leftover fresh strawberries for the glaze disappeared. So I thought I could just use more freeze dries strawberries… The answer was no. The raw honey and freeze dried strawberries stuck together like glue and the coconut oil would not mix at all. I then tried to save it by putting it in the double boiler… I tasted it while waiting for it to melt and thought, this tastes like a fruit roll up…. It did not melt. So I put it between two pieces of wax paper, rolled it thin with a rolling pin and cut into strips…. The kids loved it and even called me awesome hahaha!! Real food fruit roll ups! And I’ll just have to dip those donuts in dark chocolate. 😉
