Baked Paleo Cranberry Almond Donuts

I know that a lot of people who eat Paleo scoff at making paleo-tized sweets and desserts.  Not me.  If I’m going to make Paleo-style eating a way of life, whether for 30 days, a year, or longer, I need to have balance.  And that means sometimes I need some dessert… and not just a piece of fruit.

I have a gazillion Paleo desserts pinned on Pinterest.  But I ended up not using any of them for this recipe, but rather just loosely basing this experiment on other recipes I found – using similar ingredients, mixing them together until I got the right consistency, and baking.  Amazingly, they turned out pretty good!

In one bowl, I combined coconut flour, almond flour, psyllium husk, stevia, and baking powder.

In another, I combined eggs, almond milk and almond extract.

I added both bowls together and mixed well.

I wanted to use these dried cranberries that my Mom brought back for me from Cape Cod.  They are almost all gone.  I love that they have no added sugar – its so hard to find these in the store.

Added in the cranberries,

And spooned the batter into my donut pan I had greased with coconut oil.

These are delicious plain, or with a little nut butter or coconut butter on top.
