Servings 5


  • 2 cup whole grain flour We grind ours fresh in a Nutrimill.
  • 1/2 cup sourdough starter fed
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup sugar organic cane or coconut sugar
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil melted
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • coconut oil for frying


  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon ground


  1. The night before you plan to make the doughnuts, combine flour, sourdough starter, and water in a bowl. Cover with a tea towel and let sit overnight.

  2. The next morning add the sourdough mixture and the rest of the ingredients to a mixer and combine.  

  3. Roll out the mixture on a lightly floured surface. Only use as much flour as needed because if you add too much these tend to get dense and bready.

  4. Cut out the donuts with a doughnut cutter or use a large cup and a small cup to make the donut shape.

  5. Cover the doughnuts with a tea towel and allow them to rise for an hour or two.

  6. Next, use a pan to heat the frying oil over medium heat until it sizzles when something is added.

  7. Add the doughnuts and turn the oil down to low. The goal is for them to still sizzle, yet not cook so rapidly that they become done on the outsides and not the insides.

  8. Flip once and cook on the other side.

  9. When done, take donuts out of the frying pan and place on plate

  10. Toss the freshly fried doughnuts in the cinnamon sugar topping mixture.

  11. Pour yourself a large mason jar of fresh milk and serve immediately.
