Yes, this recipe is for reals. I know, it looks like something out of a fantasy, or the Paula Deen show, but it is indeed healthy. Or healthier. Let’s deconstruct it. First we start with a grain-, gluten-, and refined-sugar-free baked donut. Then we dip our wholesome donut in a glaze made with coconut oil and raw honey. Next we add a nutritious egg and slices of nitrate-free bacon. Not too sinful after all . . .

Quick Tip: There are many ways to expand on this basic donut recipe, if you are so inclined. Why wouldn’t you be? Here are my favorite variations:

Chocolate Glazed Donuts: Use the donut recipe below and dip in ½ cup dark chocolate melted with 1 tablespoon coconut oil. Put in the fridge for a few minutes so he chocolate hardens.

Apple Fritter Donuts: Add ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon in step 2. Add ¼ teaspoon maple extract in step 4. In a skillet, combine 1 tablespoon coconut oil, 1 small apple (finely chopped), 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup, and 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon. Cook until soft, and then fold the apple mixture into the batter in step 5.

Chocolate Donuts: Add ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder in step 2. Increase the maple syrup to 4 tablespoons in step 4.

Serves 6

¼ teaspoon baking soda

3 tablespoons pure maple syrup

¼ + ¼ tsp teaspoon almond extract, divided

2 + ½ teaspoons vanilla extract, divided

2 tablespoons + ¼ cup coconut oil, divided

1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar

2 eggs + 6 eggs, divided

¼ cup honey

6 bacon strips


Preheat the oven to 350 ̊F. Grease a donut pan with coconut oil.


Combine the almond flour and baking soda in a small bowl.


Separate the egg yolks and whites. Use an electric mixer to beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form.


Combine the yolks, syrup, almond extract, vanilla extract, 2 tablespoons coconut oil, and vinegar in a bowl.


Add the dry ingredients to the wet ones. Mix to combine. Gently fold in the egg whites. Use a piping bag to pipe the batter into each of the 6 donut tins. Smooth out the tops of the donuts. Bake for 15 minutes.


Meanwhile, individually fry 6 eggs and cook the bacon in a skillet. Set aside.


Combine the honey and remaining 1⁄4 cup coconut oil, 1⁄4 teaspoon almond extract, and 2 teaspoons vanilla extract in a small bowl.


Chill the donuts for 10 minutes. Dip in the glaze and place on a tray lined with parchment paper. Chill for another 10 minutes. Slice each donut in half and fill with a fried egg and slices of bacon. Enjoy!
