Donut Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 180C/360F.
  2. Place all of the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl and stir together so that all of the ingredients are all very well combined.
  3. Add the wet ingredients and mix gently. A silicone spatula works well for this as it allows you to drag all of the flour off the sides of the bowl and into the batter. Do not over mix so that it stays nice and aerated - this will make the donuts nice and fluffy.
  4. Spoon the mixture into a donut tin and fill to about 3/4 full. See video for demonstration of this.
  5. Once all of the donut holes are filled, place in oven for 12 minutes.
  6. Once done, allow to cool for a couple of minutes before taking them out of the tray. Note: by running a silicone spatula around the edge, this will allow you to lift the donuts out easily.
  7. When ready, dip the top of the donut into the caramel sauce, then dip it into the shredded coconut. Enjoy 🙂
Caramel Topping Instructions
  1. Place the dates and water into a small blender and let them sit for a while to soften if you do not have super soft dates on hand. By using hot water it will also help to make this much smoother and creamier when blending.
  2. Add the lemon juice and salt and blend till smooth.
  3. Place in a small shallow bowl.
  4. Place coconut into another shallow bowl.
Recipe Notes

The blender I use for this is a Tribest Personal Blender. Find it using my Amazon link:

Other topping ideas you might like to try: icing, melted chocolate, chopped nuts, flaked almonds, goji berries, chocolate frosting etc.

    Sounds great, can’t wait to try these donuts! Why do you add almond milk and coconut milk? Could I use all almond milk?
    Just found your YouTube videos a couple days ago. I love them! Thank you for all your work on them.

      Glad you like the recipe 🙂 I use a combination of milk as the coconut milk is a little bit richer and is a great alternative to using oil or margarine.

    If I add pumpkin mix to the caramel coconut donuts, how much do you suggest?
    Anxious to try the recipe.
    Thanks Anja!

      Not sure what you mean by pumpkin mix? If you mean mashed pumpkin maybe try 1/2 cup.

    These are really good! But I’ve only made them in a muffin pan because I can’t find anywhere in Australia that sells (or has stock) of 6 hole donut pans. They are available from online o/s sites but shipping costs are insane. Any ideas where to get them?

      I got mine from a kitchen supplies shop.

    Hi Anji,
    These look amazing. I will finally get to use my donut pan, yeah. Which I found at the thrift store. So someone who asked about it, just might want to check out there. My question is, can oat flour be used instead to make these GF?

      I’m so glad… Thank you so much for your lovely feedback, I really appreciate it 🙂 I haven’t tried with almond flour, you would need to test it. Let me know how it goes if you do.
