Grain-Free Strawberry Birthday Cake Donuts
Grain-Free Strawberry Birthday Cake DonutsThis blog started because I had been diagnosed with food allergies, and I had the idea that I could maybe help others with the same issues. I thought it would be fun to start a site where I could share all of the recipes that I had learned and created (really just expecting my husband and mom to read it), never did I imagine that it would turn out to be what it is now.

Grain-Free Strawberry Birthday Cake DonutsIt has grown to be a space that is so much bigger than me, and I love that. I am on a mission to advocate health, wellness, and delicious gluten-free food. I will never forget the first time I received an email from a reader saying that his grandson had a gluten allergy and had never had pancakes until he made my oat pancakes. It absolutely made my day, and reminded me why I started this blog. It is still my favorite thing to receive comments and emails from you guys saying that my recipes have helped you. You guys are the best, and this site would not be where it is now without your feedback, comments, tweets, and pins.

TWK Turns 3! + Grain-Free Strawberry Birthday Cake Donuts

Yield: Makes 10 donuts


  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 4 eggs
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil (melted)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk
  • 3/4 cup chopped strawberries
  • Glaze
  • 2 cups strawberries
  • 3/4 cup organic powdered sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the almond flour, coconut flour, coconut sugar, and baking soda.
  2. Add in the eggs, coconut oil, vanilla, and milk. Whisk until combined. Once batter is mixed, add in the chopped strawberries and fold them in with a spatula or wooden spoon to combine.
  3. Spray a donut pan with non-stick cooking spray, and then spoon the batter into the pan, evenly distributing the batter. Bake for 11-13 minutes.
  4. Remove from the oven and let them cool for at least 5 minutes before removing from the pan. You may have to use a butter knife to loosen them from the pan before removing them. Just run it along the edges and the center hole to make them come out easier.
  5. Turn the pan over to remove them, and let them cool completely on a wire rack before adding the glaze.
  6. While they are cooling, make the glaze. Add the strawberries and powdered sugar to a food processor and pulse until you have a smooth consistency. Transfer the glaze to a bowl.
  7. Once the donuts are completely cooled, gently dunk the tops of the donuts into the glaze, then decorate with sprinkles if desired.
