Paleo Donuts with Chocolate Ganache

Well, they did it again and I have no idea how.  The Paleo power couple behind The Food Lover’s Kitchen managed to write two stunning cookbooks and plan a wedding in the same year.  I need to know what they are putting in their bulletproof coffee and get my hands on some of it.  I suspect it is some sort of rocket fuel that gives them the energy for their bodies to keep up with their beautifully creative minds.  I am honestly in awe of their talent and their newest book The 30 Day Guide to Paleo is no exception.  So today, you get two amazing things for one.  Want to see the first?  Here you go, Paleo Donuts with Chocolate Ganache.

Yes, do you see those bad boys?  That is what I am talking about and now that I have your attention I will talk about the book.  I will keep it short, cause honestly, the quicker you go BUY IT, the better off you will be.

What’s in the new book?

  • Part 1 covers the basics of the Paleo diet. They have tailored the information in this section to include some of the many topics they have been asked to discuss over the last few years; the questions people actually need answers for. How do I build a meal? How do I go grocery shopping? What can I eat and drink? What sort of ingredients do I need to stock my kitchen?
  • Part 2 provides the actual meal plan, which guides the reader through their first 30 days of Paleo. This isn’t meant to be trial by fire in the kitchen. Rather, the meal plan is geared towards busy people who need to find the balance between creating delicious AND easy meals. This section contains easy-to-follow weekly meal plans accompanied by handy shopping lists, all of which are available as tear-outs in the back of the book.
  • Part 3 of the book is a presentation of 75 of their best new recipes, which are squeaky-clean Paleo. You won’t find any desserts or sweet treats in this book. The recipes are tasty, easy to execute, and won’t put a strain on your wallet either. We’ve put a lot of thought into the recipes, and hope it shows.

I think this book not only has the ability to benefit anyone that cooks, but even change lives!

Whether you are new to Paleo or have been doing it a while. The recipe ideas are fresh and creative, so I think long time Paleo folks will appreciate the new meal ideas too. If you have loved ones or friends in your life you want to adopt a healthier lifestyle, this book is the perfect guide to get them started.

How is this book different from their other two books?

  • 75 ALL NEW RECIPES. That means you wont find overlap between the recipes in Make it Paleo and Gather. There are a few very basic recipes that are necessary to repeat (like mayonnaise), but the real food recipes are all different, and they think you guys are going to love them.
  • The recipes are the most straightforward and “cleanest” out of their three books. The recipes are about as easy as those in Make it Paleo, but you won’t find any desserts in this book. (The closest we get to an indulgence is a lone recipe for almond flour pancakes.)
  • 30 Day Meal Plan with Weekly Shopping Lists and tear-out guides. This book lays out a full month long meal plan, which makes adopting a Paleo lifestyle easy and fun.
  • Accessible, easy to understand info on the Paleo diet. While the basic stuff hasn’t really changed, we’ve added a ton of information to this section to make things plain and simple.
  • Tear-out Guides. Take the meal plans and shopping lists with you to the grocery store!
  • 24 bonus “Express Eats” recipes in the back of the book to help you build additional meals on your own.
  • Meal building tips and shopping tips
  • Success Stories (will yours be in the next printing!?)
  • Answers to frequently asked questions about topics such as Cholesterol, Gluten, Carbohydrates, Soy, Fats, Calcium, and much more!

So no more reading, time to go buy the book, and then read down for the delicious Paleo Donut with Chocolate Ganache recipe.  Just click on the image below and enjoy

  1. i just wanted to tell you how much we love these!! i am also egg free and substitute with the “chia egg” the middles are a little more moist that way but the outsides are crispy and they are absolutely delicious!!!

  2. Hey George, I have heard of arrowroot powder and also have a recipe that calls for tapioca flour instead of arrowroot flour (I think they are both used to give a better texture). Do you know if one can be substituted for another? Thanks and can’t wait to try these!

  3. So just made these again, but used it as a base for fall flavors-total success!
    Apple cider donuts-boiled 1 cup of apple cider down to just under 1/4 cup, added with wet ingredients. Added cinnamon to dry ingredients, and used grass fed butter instead of coconut oil. And added a little extra arrowroot powder due to the extra liquid.
    Pumpkin spice- swapped out coconut milk for pumpkin (1:1 ratio), added cinnamon and nutmeg, and used butter instead of coconut oil.
    Maple bacon- did these before, but successful again, added some crumbled bacon to the base, used bacon fat instead of coconut oil. Frosted with maple cream, and topped with crumbled bacon.

    This recipe is so versatile, it’s a lot of fun to play with!!

  4. First batch I made on Monday- perfection! The batch I made last night, not so much. The flavor is there but I used what I had: NOW Almond Flour on the first batch and Bob’s Almond Meal on the 2nd. Once combined the batter was very watery and pouring uncontrollably out of the little ziplock bag. I think it needed a heartier flour. The meal made the dry ingredients looks powdery. I had to watch the timer on the first two (both tries yielded exactly 18 full size donuts-made in batches of 6 each) and pretty much took them out of the oven at 11 minutes and immediately took them out of the pan. The taste/texture was delicate and cakey (not doughnut like firmness from the other day) but the flavor was still there and kind of incredible. My 3rd batch didn’t look burned but once I took them out of the oven this consistency would not allow me to shovel them out easily like the other 12. I needed something to mop up the chocolate bowl and double boiler though so not a total waste. :)

    Anyway, great recipe! Thank you for sharing George!

  5. Would these work in a donut maker? I have a problem with paleo waffles always sticking to my waffle maker. Thanks!!!!

  6. Made these this weekend- phenomenal!

    I swapped out the coconut oil for bacon fat (had some fresh from breakfast!), and topped half with the chocolate glaze, and the other half with a maple cream I made from maple syrup, then topped the maple cream glaze with crumbled bacon. Heaven! My non-paleo friends at work are inhaling them this morning. Looking forward to trying some new variations- the batter is so neutral and yummy there are lots of possibilities. Might try cinnamon, blueberry, cocoa powder… could even add some lemon zest to it to make it lemony without having the sugar glaze!

  7. These donuts look way better than anything I could buy in the store. Great article on the new cookbook. If all of the recipes are like this, it will be a great addition to my collection of cook books.

  8. Hmmm – are they light and airy or a bit denser? They certainly LOOK amazing!

  9. Hi Caveman,
    I live in Southern CA, too-I’ll just wait until you make these donuts and come over and eat them with you! They do look great. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe and for all of the fun things you do for us.

  10. Ashley Griffin says:

    Just made them! SOOOO GOOD!

  11. These look so good! I wonder if its possible to make a maple syrup glaze (in place of the chocolate ganache) and then sprinkle with bacon bits the way Voodoo Doughnuts does for their maple bacon doughnut.


    I may need to go to the store for more supplies now.

  12. Their pictures are breathtaking!

  13. Shawna O. says:

    Those donuts look delicious and your book sounds amazing! Thanks for the great giveaway!

  14. Definitely on my to do list!

  15. Mmmm donuts!!! What about bacon donuts? Hmmm…

  16. tracey byram says:

    I start every day with bacon. Love it!!

  17. I love how you combined almond flour and arrowroot! I can’t use too much almonds in cooking or I get a bit of a stomach ache, so these will definitely be on my to-cook list :) The fact that 30 Day Guide to Paleo is ultra clean. If I get anywhere near off track, my face swells up with eczema and I have to eat ultra cleanly. Recipes that are really good like that are just what I like :)
