Clean Eating Doughnut Recipe

In honor of National Doughnut Day I decided to try out a clean eating version of Homer Simpsons favorite treat. I got this specific recipe from The Gracious Pantry, and although I don't eat doughnuts often...or ever...I thought they were really tasty!

Now one thing to keep in mind is that just because a recipe is 'clean' that doesn't mean that you do not have to abide to proper portions. That being said, when I have a treat I prefer clean treats! I did not have a doughnut pan to use when trying out this recipe so I improvised by using a cup cake pan and then a cupcake cutter that I found at the local party store. Enjoy!


  • 2 cups of whole wheat pastry flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 large eggs 
  • 2 tablespoons safflower oil 
  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened coconut milk


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Grease the donut pan lightly.
  3. In a large mixing bowl whisk the flour, baking soda and salt. 
  4. In another medium mixing bowl combine the rest of the ingredients. Whisk together aggressively until slightly foamy. 
  5. Pour the liquid into the flour mixture, then mix together until blended into a sticky/thick batter.
  6. Spoon the batter into your doughnut pan (I used a cupcake pan) and bake for 10-15 minutes. Keep an eye on the doughnuts because they can burn quickly. 
  7. Set on cooling rack and top with your favorite doughnut toppings.
