I have few words to describe these donut holes other than INSANELY DELICIOUS. For how simple they are to make and the wholesome ingredients involved, these little donut bites are winners in my book. The air fryer keeps the donuts crisp on the outside and soft/doughy on the inside. I rolled them around in a cinnamon sugar mix before frying and they’re really just perfection. Eat them warm – straight from the fryer – and FALL in love!
Air Fryer Cinnamon Almond Donut Holes
- 1 egg
- 1/3 cup coconut sugar
- 3 tbsp avocado oil or coconut oil
- 2 tbsp maple syrup
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- ¼ tsp almond extract
- 1 1/2 cups almond flour
- 3 tbsp coconut flour
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- ½ tsp baking powder
- ¼ tsp salt
Cinnamon Sugar Coating
- A mix of coconut sugar & cinnamon just eyeball it!
- Combine all of your wet ingredients in a mixing bowl.
- Add your dry ingredients to the wet and stir well to combine. (I like to use a silicone or rubber spatula).
- Put dough in the fridge to rest for 30 minutes.
- Meanwhile, pull out your air fryer and spray well with oil (olive oil/coconut oil/avocado oil all will work just fine). Also use this time to combine some coconut sugar with cinnamon in a small ramekin. I just eyeballed the measurements!
- Using a cookie scoop, portion out the dough and roll into small balls. Dip in the cinnamon sugar mixture and place in to your oiled air fryer. Make sure there's a tiny bit of space between each ball. They will expand/ puff up a bit! Depending on the size of your fryer, you may need to make 2 batches.
- Turn your air fryer on to 350 degrees F and fry the donuts for 7-9 minutes. At around 4-5 minutes, shake the fryer basket. You'll know when the donut holes are done when the exterior looks puffed up and crisp with a few crackles! Let the donut holes cool for a few (if you can) and enjoy!
- Store on counter for 1-2 days then transfer to fridge in a covered container.
