Chocolate Strawberry Donuts

I hate falling up the stairs. It’s embarrassing.

I went to Omaha, Nebraska over the weekend. It’s humid there. I was sweating more than usual. Which is a lot. Then it was really windy. Which my hair didn’t love. Other than that, Nebraska is nice. I can only say that because it was nice outside and wasn’t snowing. But everyone I talked to there told me to never move away from Colorado. Probably because Colorado is the greatest.

Anywho, I went to Omaha for the boyfriend’s brother’s high school graduation. So great. He’s going to play football in college. How exciting. I might even go to a game or two. Or three. That will be the second football game I’ve ever gone to. I wasn’t one to go to college football games in high school or college. I never knew anyone who was playing, so why would I care? Now I’ll know someone. I may even scream. I feel awkward screaming during sports.

Back to graduations. I remember graduating high school. To me, it was a wonderful day. I HATED high school. Pretty much hated 96.5% of it, so I was stoked when I knew I didn’t have to see anyone from high school anymore. Or step foot in that high school again. Or be in my hometown much anymore. It was a new chapter in life. A time to become a person I wanted to be. College is just so much more fun. You get to do random stuff. And bad stuff. And stupid stuff. All stuff that you can mostly get away with because you’re in college. It’s awesome.

And you know what else I found out in Nebraska. There are cars out there that have air conditioning FOR YOU BUTT. In the seat!! It’s true. My boyfriend’s sister had them in her car. I thought my new car was real great because it had heated seats, but AIR CONDITIONED SEATS?!?! Mind.Blown.

I want to see the movie ‘Now You See Me’. I love magic.


Chocolate Strawberry Donuts

  • Yield: 6 1x



For the topping

  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips or Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips, melted
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Sift together almond flour, unsweetened cocoa powder, coconut flour, baking soda, and salt into a large bowl.
  3. Then add the honey, coconut oil, vanilla, and eggs. Mix well.
  4. Then fold in diced strawberries and chocolate chips.
  5. Grease your donut pan with some coconut oil and pour the donut batter into the pan. This made 6 donuts from the batter.
  6. Place in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes.

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. Girl, you want to feel humidity? Come on down to Louisiana! I went for a run this morning at 5, and by 5:15, I was drenched because it was so humid. And yes, we cherish our A/C seats down here! I had them in my Avalon and loved it. Glad to hear your now enjoying sports. Catching the fever is fun, and you’ll be screaming along with everyone else soon! Have a great day!
    Umm…I’m also going to buy a donut pan to make this recipe. It looks amazing!

    1. Yep, in LA now, outside working with horses…..yuck it’s hot and humid out here!

      Colorado is my dream state! One of these years….

      1. I live in the Virginia Beach area and I just mowed my lawn at 0830 this morning and filled a t-shirt with sweat. Summer is here!

  2. We were in Omaha for the weekend too, except watching State Track. It was a hot one! These donuts look awesome.

  3. OMGosh!! This looks amazing! Julie, do you know where I can find almond flour in bulk? These tiny packages aren’t cuttin’ it! Thanks!

    1. Lindsey,
      If you have a Sprouts near you, they sell almond meal in bulk. The price for me I think is $4.99/lb, which isn’t bad. You can also make your own with a food processor.

  4. That recipe is exactly what I came here looking for. I can now have a good day.

    Everyone in my world thanks you for saving their lives today.

  5. Recipe question: 1/4 tablespoon honey? Do you just eyeball this or is there a measuring method I’m missing?

    1. Liz – if you put a little coconut oil on the tsp before you measure the honey, it will slide off super easy!

  6. Go Big Red! I’m from Nebraska and went to school in Lincoln. Glad you got to visit the great state 🙂 Even more glad that you’re dating a Nebraska man!

    On another note, I tried a different chicken carbonara recipe the other night, and it was not nearly as good as yours 🙂

  7. That’s so cool you were in Omaha, that’s where I live! 🙂 It was a pretty humid day but it wasn’t nearly as bad as Wed was. I was dying! I thought Sunday was beautiful, the bf and I sat outside and watched the t-storms while drinking some New Grist beers. I can’t wait to try your recipe, I love donuts! BTW, if you don’t want to use almond flour, how much should I up the amount of coconut flour? Thanks! 🙂

  8. I’m from Nebraska. Grew up in a small town. I wouldn’t trade it. But then I moved here 5 years and there are things to do here! Nature has different landscapes, NOT all corn and soybeans, which I don’t eat anyway….
    I love Huskers football. But that’s about it for sports.
    Randomness over.

  9. Heat, humidity, and college football? Girl, it’s like you made this post specifically for the Southerners!

  10. These look scrumptious!!

    Can I put in a request?? How ’bout a red velvet donut with a cream cheese glaze????

  11. I have nut allergies, so almond flour, which is used so much in Paleo recipes, is unfortunately out for me, any general substitutions for flour?

  12. I grew up just west of Omaha – come back in a month or so and it will get worse! Air conditioning for your booty is a must! We used to come in from mowing in the lawn and lay on the concrete basement floor to cool off.

    Go Huskers! 🙂

  13. Oh my! I was at Trader Joes in Omaha on Saturday and I thought I saw you! But I had no idea why it would be you. I was trying not to stare and look like an idiot.

  14. Dude, I have air conditioned seats and I live in Seattle… land of zero humidity. With that snobbery behind us, is there any way to make these treats with no egg? I tried some substitute things in one of the other recipes and all I got was a doughnut pan of disaster and mush. It tasted nice, but looked like butt and was hard to eat. I hate cooking and am not a scientist, so I suck at baking substitutions.. help?

  15. I grew up in Omaha and now live in Denver. I too am shocked by how humid Omaha seems to me now.
    BUT I lived in New Orleans for 10 years before moving to Denver, and I would always laugh when my mom complained about the humidity in Omaha. There is truly no comparison.
    All I can say is that my skin is going downhill pretty quickly… wrinkles are setting in, in this dry Colorado climate!
    And thank you for introducing me to Enjoy Life chips… yum!

  16. Yay! I’m from Omaha (now live in Lincoln). Had to do a double take when I saw the first line of this post. So neat.

  17. I made these muffins this morning for brunch. And they’re VERY good! Even without the chocolate drizzle on top. I will do that next time but it just didn’t work out timewise today.

  18. I just grabbed a copy of your cook book, and seriously EVERY SINGLE PAGE looks AWESOME!

    I keep reading “dark chocolate chips” and wonder if you were preparing desserts for Paleo peeps, do they get silly about Evaporated Cane Juice as an ingredient? I like Enjoy Life, but I prefer the Sun Spire 42% cacao chips for my desserts.

    But anytime someone eats the desserts with the Sun Spire chips, they say, “There is NO way this is Paleo,” but I think it is.

    Let me know your thoughts. (Sorry for geeking out!!)

      1. I just tried using a donut maker today, and it worked great! They only took about 2-3 minutes per batch.

  19. These look so yummy! I’ve read that you have found that you can’t really eat nuts bc they make you feel bloated and tired etc… I am the same way and kind of found it hard to believe since it is recommended as such a healthy snack.. can you have almond meal treats like this and still feel ok? I try to stay away from the almond meal.. any substitute you use?

    1. no, if i make anything with almond meal, i usually only have a couple bites then give them away or i’m sick all day. i try to use coconut flour as much as possible instead of almond flour

  20. No donut pan in sight…going to try bite sized in a silicon brownie bite pan? My 2.5 year old is jumping up and down screaming ChocoPaleDonutMeMomma!! Needless to say she knows what Paleo is hahahahahaha even though she is our Primal girl for sure…no one is taking away sweet girls Raw Cheese!
    Thanks for the help…and fun style of Paleo…we need all the help and humor we can get 🙂
    Much love!

  21. I made these with blueberries because i was out of strawberries. also delish. and i used one of those little electric mini donut makers. very easy. made about 18 minis i think.

  22. I made these this morning. I did add 3tbsp ground choffy and used only 2 tbsp of the cocoa powder. I am a distributor for choffy so always looking for new ways to incorperate itinto recipes. They are amazing! I made them and gave my son(who has a broken foot) a plate and set him up outside under a tree in an adirondack chair. I went back to get my husbands plate and my plate and when i looked again, my son was literally licking his plate clean. Major success. Thanks so much for the recipe.

  23. I just made these. They are divine! My two year old and I shared two of them. I absolutely love this recipe.

  24. I look at this picture and want you to visit and cook for me. OMG this looks amazing but with kids, work and army life these appear a little out of my reach.

    You go girl.

  25. love your recipes! I’m new to paleo and crossfit– love crossfit but paleo is a bit harder to stay on track, as I was raised on dairy and grains. lots of great food ideas and variety– thanks!
    ** I’m from omaha ! woo! & yeah its really f@#! humid here. i love colorado. just out of curiosity, what (omaha) high school were you speaking of? 😉

  26. These are amazing. I was making with a 4 year old so we dipped in chocolate and finished with sprinkles. Although I imagine they aren’t paleo. Also we made 12 out of the mixture but maybe my pan is smaller. Thanks so much for the recipe!!

  27. How many carbs? That would be useful on your recipes cause I am going on this low carb diet where I have to limit my carbs to 30 grams a day for 9 days.

  28. These are great and really hit the spot. I’ve made them twice. I dip the tops of mine in the chocolate and sprinkle the tops with nuts or sprinkles. I always use raspberries instead of strawberries (a small package of raspberries is the perfect amount.) It makes 12 large donuts in my pans. My daughter also loves them and since it’s just the two of us when they have cooled completely we each get one and then put the rest on a cookie sheet and freeze them. Once frozen I wrap them individually in press n’ seal and put them in a big freezer bag. When you are ready to eat one unwrap it and heat it up for about 20 seconds or less and they taste as good as when they were first made.

  29. Amazing!!! I made these yesterday morning and had to share with the family. Everyone loved them. I just went on a 5 mile run and came back while planning on eating only one with my green smoothie shake but just had to eat two. Oink Oink….

  30. So to be honest I usually browse all the recipes on here drooling but never indulge because I am intimidated by most of them. I am a hot mess in the kitchen. However that being said I love this recipe and nailed it first try!
    I have tried other recipes for ‘paleo’ donuts that looked easier only to fail tremendously the first try and having to tweak them the second time to get them to come out.
    Not only did I not tweak this recipe at all (and blow it awaythe first time) but these are delicious! Which is good and bad because I am left feeling proud but also like a lioness in heat protecting her kill while I devour them.

    5 stars!

  31. Made mine in a muffin tin and they turned out great other than being a tad dry. I did not out the choc. chips in nor did I frost them so I’m sure that added to the dryness. I will also keep them in for around 15 minutes next time.
