Glazed Pistachio Donuts
Recipe Type: Dessert, Baking, Donut
Serves: 6 donuts
Ground pistachios and whole wheat flour combined with almond extract make these baked donuts a treat to be reckoned with, and we haven't even made it to the dark chocolate glaze yet.
  • ¾ cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • ⅓ cup finely ground pistachios, plus extra for sprinkling on top
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 egg
  • ⅓ cup + 2 tablespoons buttermilk
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1½ teaspoon almond extract

  1. Preheat the oven to 400.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, ground pistachios, baking powder, and salt.
  3. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the egg, buttermilk, butter, coconut sugar, honey, and almond extract.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix together until just combined. Do not over mix.
  5. Pipe the mixture evenly into the donut pan. (I use a small ziploc bag and cut the tip off one corner for piping.)
  6. Bake for 10 minutes, until donuts are light golden brown. Let cool in pan for 2-3 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack. Dip donuts in chocolate glaze and sprinkle with additional ground pistachios. Donuts are best served slightly warm.
  1. Melt chocolate and coconut oil together in a double boiler or in a microwave. If using a microwave, heat for 15 second intervals and stir after each interval. When chocolate is almost completely melted, remove from heat and stir until smooth. Stir in almond extract.
