These Coconut Orange Pistachio Doughnuts are a healthy dessert snack that is a unique combination of apple sauce, orange juice, coconut milk and shredded coconut and an orange glaze of powdered sugar and orange juice. Enjoy!


For The Doughnuts
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup apple sauce
  • ¼ cup canola oil
  • ¼ cup fresh orange juice
  • ¼ cup coconut milk (or your preferred non-dairy milk)
  • 1 tbsp orange zest
  • 1 cup flour
  • ½ cup shredded coconut
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
For The Toppings
  • 1½ cups powdered sugar
  • 2-3 tbsp orange juice
  • chopped pistachios
  1. Preheat the oven to 350F, lightly spray a doughnut pan, and then set aside.
  2. In a large bowl combine flour, coconut, baking powder, and salt. In a smaller bowl, whisk together sugar, apple sauce, canola oil, orange juice, coconut milk, and zest in a small bowl. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix until just combined.
  3. With a piping bag (or spoon) fill doughnut cavities ⅔ full. Bake 12-13 minutes, until lightly golden and doughnut springs back when gently touched.
  4. Allow doughnuts to cool ten minutes before removing from the pan. Transfer to a wire cooling rack to cool completely.
  5. Meanwhile make the orange glaze by stirring together powdered sugar and orange juice with a whisk until desired consistency; it should be thick, but not clumpy.
  6. Dip the top half of each doughnut in the orange glaze and top with crushed pistachios.
  7. Enjoy!
