Healthy Gluten-Free Chai Spiced Donuts
This time of year, it’s all about warming spices and delicious baked goods. And these healthy Gluten-Free Chai Spiced Donuts tick both of those boxes perfectly. Plus, they have minimal sugar and wholesome ingredients, so you can indulge without the added guilt.
A simple combination of almond flour and coconut flour make up the base of these gluten-free donuts. A bit of maple syrup adds just the right amount of sweetness and the coconut milk adds a richness to the flavor and texture. But what really brings the #fallvibes to these healthy donuts is the addition of Earth Echo’s Chai Bliss.
Chai Bliss is an indulgent superfood blend of ginger, cardamom, cinnamon, clove bud, nutmeg, and black pepper all with health boosting antioxidants. And that’s just the beginning. Chai Bliss also includes a combination of Lion’s Mane mushrooms, L-theanine, and zinc to create a natural nootropic blend that helps boost brain energy and focus. *
While Chai Bliss makes for a delightfully warming drink, it’s also a great way to add some spiced goodness to baked goods. And the hit of healthy superfoods never hurts, either.
These Gluten-free Chai Spiced Donuts double up on the fall flavor by adding Chai Bliss in both the batter and the chai sugar topping. But if you don’t have Chai Bliss, you can just use cinnamon or the following combination to match that chai flavor:
Simple Chai Spice Blend
- 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
- 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
These donuts are absolutely perfect to enjoy on a crisp, quiet Sunday morning in fall, ideally with a warm cup of coffee, a cozy blanket, and a book. They’re also great for brunch or dessert anytime! Time to invite some friends over and give these Healthy Gluten Free Chai Spiced Donuts a try.

Preheat the oven to 350° F. Grease a donut pan with butter or coconut oil and set aside.
Add the almond flour, coconut flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and sea salt to a bowl and whisk to combine.
In a separate large bowl, add the maple syrup, coconut milk, butter, and eggs. Whisk thoroughly until well combined and creamy.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and gently stir to combine.
Place the batter into a piping bag or a plastic resealable bag with a corner cut off.
Pipe into donut molds, filling about 1/2 the way full. Be careful not to overfill. You should get 10 donuts total.
Bake for 20 minutes. The edges of the donut should be starting to brown and a toothpick inserted into one should come out clean.
Let donuts cool in the pan for 5-10 minutes before transferring them onto a cooling rack to cool completely.
While the donuts are cooling, combine the coconut sugar and Chai Bliss on a small plate.
Brush the cooled donuts with a bit of melted butter and then dip them into the Chai Bliss mixture to coat. Enjoy!
While these donuts are best eaten the day they’re made, leftovers can be stored in a lidded container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
