Bacon Banana Almond Butter Donuts

Clearly I feel the need to shower you guys with dessert recipes after lambasting you all with organ meat for a week.  Well, actually, since these donuts have bacon and fruit in them, they’re a well-balanced breakfast, right?

Pretty sure this is the flavor combination of the century…a little sweet, a little savory, and a lotta bacon.  And bacon is life.  Although I’ll admit my frosting-to-donut ratio miiiiight be a little skewed in the wrong direction.

You know, because if you have it for breakfast it doesn’t count as a dessert.  Fact.


1/2 c Coconut Flour

1/2 t Baking Soda

1 t Cinnamon

1/2 c Almond Butter

1 Mashed Banana

5 Eggs

2 T Raw Honey

1 T Vanilla

2 Thick Slices Bacon, cooked and diced


Combine the coconut flour, baking soda, and cinnamon.

With an electric mixer, cream the almond butter, banana, vanilla, and honey.  Add the eggs one by one until well blended.  Bit by bit, add the dry ingredients and beat until fluffy.  Fold in the bacon bits.

Spoon batter into a greased donut pan (bonus if you use bacon grease!!).  Bake at 325 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

1 c Palm Shortening

2 T Raw Honey

1 1/2 T Vanilla

2 t Cinnamon


Beat all ingredients together until smooth.  Frost cooled donuts.  Devour.

    • You can try butter if you’re OK with it or even coconut oil. I also like coconut cream (the stuff you skim off the top of the can of coconut milk).

  4. I know this comes a little late but I am just getting into Paleo for health reasons and my sweet tooth is sky high!! But bananas is a big NONO! I have migraines and that sets them off big time. Does anyone have a suggestion for a substitution??? This looks awesome and breakfast ideas are scarce. Eggs are getting boring too. lol Thanks ahead of time!
