For the donuts:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¾ cup milk non-dairy works great!
  • 2 Eggs
  • ½ cup coconut oil melted and cooled
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup maple syrup

For the cinnamon maple glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 –3 teaspoons milk


  • Preheat the oven to 350F and prepare two donut baking pans with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and baking powder.
  • In another bowl, mix the milk, egg, coconut oil, vanilla, and maple syrup.
  • Gradually add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients and mix until smooth.
  • Carefully divide the batter amongst the two pans using a small spoon or piping bag, about 3 tablespoons for each donut.
  • Bake for 15 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
  • Meanwhile, in a bowl combine the glaze ingredients and stir until smooth.
  • Remove the pan from the oven and transfer the donuts to a cooling rack to cool completely.
  • Dip one side of each maple donut in the glaze and place back on the cooling rack to let excess glaze drip down.
  • Serve and enjoy!



If you don't have a donut pan, you can use a standard muffin tin. Fill each 2/3 full with donut batter. Bake at 350°F for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
