Everyone wonders which is correct doughnut or donut?
I prefer 'donut' as it is easier to spell.
However, there is a reason why there may seem to be more than one spelling for the same thing.
Here is why there may be two spellings of the same word.
The original spelling, 'doughnut' was a play on words when dough was fried and it reacted like a 'nut'.
'Donut' spelling took over when marketers decided it would be easier to market the 'doughnut' when it was easier to spell and pronounce as 'donut'.
You may be wondering why is almond flour healthy.
Let me start by saying that almond flour is basically ground almonds.
There is no wheat or oat flour in almond flour.
Here is why you may think that almond flour is is healthy.
Because it is made with almonds, almond flour is a source of protein and fiber.
Also, there is no gluten or a lot of carbohydrates, making almond flour low carb and gluten free diet friendly.
Here are some tips for making almond flour donuts.
Because we are using almond flour, the batter will be thicker than if we used regular flour.
Almond flour makes the batter more dense than regular wheat flour which means it may be a bit harder to mix.
Here are some more tips.
- Make sure that you are using gluten free ingredients in this recipe. I suggest reading the labels on the ingredients that you are using to make sure they are.
- Resist the urge to over-mix the batter. I suggest that you mix until just blended.
- Allow the donuts to cool on a wire rack after removing them from the baking pan. You can prepare the glaze while they cool.
People ask is it better to bake of fry doughnuts.
Personally, I think it is almost always better to bake something that can be fried.
This is because frying in oil adds calories and fat to the donut.

How to make this sugar free donuts recipe
- Preheat your oven to 350 and prep your donut pan for nonstick
- In a large mixing bowl, use a whisk or a fork to blend together the almond flour, coconut flour, monk fruit and baking powder.
- Next, in another mixing bowl, beat together the eggs, butter, and milk. Mix this bowl with the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients in the first bowl along with the vanilla extract and mix until just blended. Then transfer the batter to the prepped donut pan, filling each donut ¾ full. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the donuts turn golden brown.
- Remove the donuts from the oven and allow for them to cool in the pan. Allow the donuts to cool completely before transferring them to a wire rack. When unmolding the donuts from the pan, be careful not to break the donuts. A helpful trick is to use a round knife to lift the donut, moving it all around the outside of the donut.
- For the glaze- 7. Place the remaining ingredients in a small saucepan over the stove in low heat. Stir until ingredients are melted, about 1-2 minutes. Then take each individual donut from the flat side and dip it into the glaze. Top as desired. Let it cool for a few minutes before serving.
