  • Preheat the oven to 350F. Lightly grease a 6-compartment doughnut pan and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the almond flour, sweetener, tapioca flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, whisk the eggs, then whisk in the oil, vanilla and vinegar.
  • Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture and whisk until batter is smooth and evenly combined.
  • Divide the batter evenly between the 6 compartments of the prepared doughnut pan (each should be about 2/3 of the way full).
  • Bake for 14-18 minutes until the tops are domed and the edges are lightly golden.
  • Allow to cool in the pan for 10 minutes before transferring doughnuts to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Frost with homemade dairy free chocolate frosting and finish with rainbow sprinkles.


  • Store leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days.
  • Unfrosted doughnuts will keep nicely in the freezer, if wrapped tightly, for up to 3 months.
  • Yield: 6 doughnuts
