1. Preheat oven to 350°f. Lightly coat two 12-slot mini doughnut pans with cooking spray. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. 2. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, oils, rosemary, lemon zest, and lemon juice. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add wet ingredients. Mix until just combined (mixture will be lumpy).
3. Spoon batter into all slots on both pans, each 2⁄3 full. Bake, rotating pans halfway through, for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly golden. Let cool slightly.
4. Meanwhile, in a spice mill or coffee grinder, pulse pine nuts until they form a powder, then place in a shallow pan. Turn doughnuts out of pan, lightly spray tops with cooking spray, and dip into pine nut powder.


  1. let me know if they taste different I cant stand baking things before I know people have tried it and made edits that are needed, too much effort for nothing

  2. Not to keen on the sound of the Rosemary- Olive oil donut but the lemon ones sound so good and with almond flour? never heard of it but It sounds so good

  3. Visiting from our She Promotes Group. Can a donuts really be good for me, its worth a try, since my favorite snack food is pastries.
