Paleo Recipe - Apple Doughnuts

When celebrating, whether it is a family occasion or a national holiday, spending time making the best food for loved ones and guests is a given. For people from the UK, a certain holiday that comes every 5th November is Bonfire Night. The name of the feast is festive and it actually commemorates a very important time for the UK. Bonfire Night relives the night Guy Fawkes was captured and his plan to use 36 barrels of gunpowder to blow up the Houses of Parliament was thwarted. Had the plan succeeded, the Houses of Parliament would have gone up like a bonfire.

This night is monumental and it has etched its way into the UK’s history and maybe even the world. This is why even today people from the UK will find it hard not to celebrate Bonfire Night. A part of this celebration is of course food and many of us want to provide items that aren’t only easy to prepare but also easy to eat. This Paleo doughnut recipe is just perfect for this event, and even for days when you just want to enjoy a nice sweet treat.

A quick and simple recipe to create delicious tasting doughnuts that you can enjoy at any time of the year.
Ingredients
  • ½ Cup (118 g) Coconut Flour
  • ¼ Cup (59 g) Finely Ground Blanched Almond Flour
  • ¼ Teaspoon (1.25 g) Rock Salt
  • ¼ Teaspoon (1.25 g) Baking Powder
  • ¼ Teaspoon (1.25 g) Ground Cinnamon
  • 6 Eggs (Preferably Free Range)
  • ½ Cup (118 ml) Unpasteurized Honey
  • ¼ Cup (59 ml) Coconut Oil - Melted
  • ¼ Cup (59 ml) Unsweetened Apple Sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon (15 ml) Pure Vanilla Extract
Instructions
  1. • Prepare a doughnut pan by oiling it with the melted coconut oil and preheat your oven to 350°F (177°C).
  2. • In a medium bowl, mix the dry ingredients together well.
  3. • Set this bowl to one side and place all the wet ingredients together in a larger bowl.
  4. • Whisk the wet ingredients together in the large bowl. Making sure that you mix everything well.
  5. • Transfer the dry ingredients to the same bowl as the one with the wet ingredients and mix everything well together. Making sure that you have a lump-free batter. I find it best to use an electric whisk to combine all the ingredients together. But you can if you want to use a food processor.
  6. • Set the batter to one side and leave it to sit for 2 to 3 minutes.
  7. • After letting the batter sit for a few minutes, place into a piping bag.
  8. • Get your prepared doughnut pan and fill each ring ¾ full until you have used all the batter.
  9. • Place the doughnut pan in the oven and let the doughnuts bake for 20 to 22 minutes.
  10. • Once your doughnuts are baked, remove the pan from the oven and allow them to cool. This will take a minute or two.
  11. • Remove the doughnuts from the pan and let them cool further on a cooling rack.
  12. • Glaze the doughnuts with the honey. You may serve them whilst they are still warm or leave them to cool.
  13. • Enjoy your doughnuts with your favourite tea or drinks and enjoy!
Of course, doughnuts can be served even on ordinary days when you want something sweet to eat. And one of the best natural sweeteners that exist in the world today and is Paleo approved is honey. To make it more Paleo, unpasteurized honey can be used for Paleolithic diet dishes and desserts. And honey has a lot of health benefits that you should not take for granted. Here are a few of the benefits you can get, especially from unpasteurized honey.

Great Homemade Remedy For Wounds And Coughs

Paleo Food - Honey

Honey, especially raw or unpasteurized, is filled with antibacterial and antifungal properties, along with its antioxidants. When you have a wound, applying honey will mask the wound, reducing the risks of infection, whilst fighting off inflammation and bacteria build up. This speeds up the healing of the wound.

Having a cough, on the other hand, means having irritation in your throat and mouth. Just like it affects wounds, honey masks the throat and mouth like a protective film whilst releasing antibacterial compounds to fight off the irritation and infection that’s causing the cough.

Weight Loss And Energy Boost

Paleo Diet - Raw Honey

If you are looking for foods that promote weight loss without compromising your energy level, you can add unpasteurized honey to your list. Because of its high antioxidant content, such as Vitamin C, helps burn the fats in your body whilst removing the toxins and deposited fats, thus, promoting weight loss. The sugar in honey is also not stored as fats in the body and is used to fuel the body’s energy needs. Honey keeps the body going without the need or craving for additional food for fuel. This means your body won’t be asking for any extra food since it has enough to provide it with the energy it needs.

Promotes Healthy Growth Of Cells

This is also because of honey’s antioxidant compounds. When the body’s defences are in good condition and there are virtually no toxins that might affect the growth of cells, you are sure to have better and healthier cells and tissues. This will grow and replace the old cells and tissue as they die away. As the cycle goes on, you are assured that the cells in your body are as healthy as they can be. This simply means that you’ll have a body that is healthy to the core.

Reduces Your Susceptibility To Allergies

Paleo Diet - Honey - Allergies

Honey is from bees, bees get this from this flowers through their pollen, and which is known to be an allergen for many. So making honey a good protection from allergies seem a bit off. But this is why honey, especially raw or unpasteurized is special. Honey contains a bit of these allergen’s and introduces it to your system, making your system acquainted with the allergen and not trigger any allergies by strengthening your immune system’defence against them. The effects, however, may differ if the honey comes from another part of the country, since the pollen may be different.

Indeed, unpasteurized honey can do miracles to your body and your recipes. But you need to remember, that all foods should be eaten in moderation and this also goes for honey. Though it is lovely to add honey to every recipe, you need to make sure you consume just the right amount of it. So now you have this recipe, it’s time to make some healthy Paleo doughnuts that can be enjoyed by everyone Bonfire Night or at anytime of the year.
