grain free raspberry donuts with a vanilla coconut glaze {paleo friendly, gluten free}

Grain free raspberry donuts with a vanilla coconut glaze! Crumbly in all the right ways, slightly springy in texture, studded with fresh raspberries, dipped in a luscious vanilla coconut glaze and sprinkled with tart dried raspberries.

YOU GUYS! THESE DONUTS! Crumbly in all the right ways, slightly springy in texture, studded with fresh raspberries, dipped in a luscious vanilla coconut glaze and sprinkled with tart dried raspberries because donuts like to look pretty, too!

These maaay actually qualify as my new best friend. Is that too pathetic of a statement? How about: good enough to make a NEW best friend. There we go. That sounds a little more social-normal. I don’t know about you guys but I’ve neverrr chosen donuts over friends… *blink blink*

But anyhooo… (that wasn’t awkward at all now was it.. ) 

I’m super excited to be bringing you this scrumptious recipe in collaboration with Windy City Organics and Dastony, a company that makes raw and stone ground nut and seed butters with 100% organic ingredients. They make everything from out-of-this-world-good coconut butter, to pine nut butter, brazil nut butter, pumpkin seed butter and good old standby’s like almond butter. 

And this company is so rad that they’ve offered to do a giveaway for a jar of your very own coconut butter (my personal fave!). It’s happening RIGHT NOW over on my Instagram page until September 12th.  Head on over there now to snag an entry!

We’re not super into celebrating Valentine’s day around here, but we do always exchange cards and make sure we carve out some time to do something special together, and that usually involves some delicious food.

I had been playing around with some ideas for what I wanted to make this year, and my original idea for these flavor components were some naturally sweetened mini pavlovas with coconut whipped cream (before I gave up sugar, pavlova was my alllll time fave dessert! —-> This recipe <—- you guys. If you’ve ever been to a party at my house I know you’ve had it), but they turned out pretty sub par (recipe fails = real life!).

So with a bowl full of every kind of cute citrus I could find at the grocery store sitting on my counter and some cardamom candied pistachios just chilling in a jar I went back to the drawing board. And this cheesecake turned out to be everything I could ever want in a Valentine’s day (or eeehmm any day for that matter) dessert.
