Samoa, as in the Girl Scout cookies. Only donuts. And paleo. And grain-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, cane sugar-free and soy-free (always and of course).

This recipe is from The Urban Poser. She is a magical wizard genius and no one can tell me otherwise.

So, you want to make yourself some adorable Paleo Samoa Donuts. The best and most entertaining way to learn how is to watch the video. But if you can’t watch it right now and want a sneak peak at what’s coming, here are you go:

Samoa Donut Anticipation Lillian's Test Kitchen

First, congratulate yourself. You may have dietary restrictions, but you are about to make and then eat some delicious tiny donuts. Why? Because you want to. But WHY? Because YOU CAN.

You are an empowered human being who is grabbing life by the oven mitt. You are taking your dreams of tiny delicious Samoa Donuts and making them a reality.

Next, make those coconut flakes fine and toast them. Be sure to leave yourself enough time to pitch your amazing and brilliant self help book to Random House about wiggle room and how you’re going to Create The Wiggle Room In Your Life In 9 3 steps.

While your tiny and adorable donuts are cooling, melt down your baking chocolate so you can sweeten it with honey.

then dip your tiny and adorable donuts in chocolate. Maybe put them down on parchment paper. That chocolate did not come up as easily as I would have liked. But they look GREAT.

Then, because the caramel is taking longer than you thought, smear more chocolate on the donuts. Sprinkle your toasted coconut flakes on top and think to yourself, wow! These are good! Who needs paleo, dairy-free honey caramel? Not me!

About the Author ()

Lillian's Test Kitchen is an online cooking web series. The recipes in this series are always grain-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, and cane sugar-free. The recipes are also all (at this point) paleo. Some are vegan. Some are raw. I use the best ingredients I can find (and afford). But Lillian's Test Kitchen is not so much about food as it is about the experience of trying something you have never tried before and then finding the joy, comedy and laughter in those small moments in spite of and also often, because of dietary restrictions. My goal is to inspire others to take their health into their own hands and make their own food.
