Fluffy and flavorful Key Lime Coconut Donuts are baked, now not fried, and ready in much less than 30 minutes!


Made these donuts 3 times remaining week for numerous celebrations (it’s wedding ceremony/infant bathe/graduation/everything season right now!) and 6 unique human beings requested me what bakery they have been from. Ha! That’s when I knew I had to hustle home and bake some for you.


For the Key Lime Coconut Donuts:

  • 1/2 teaspo
  • on salt
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 and 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lime zest
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 1 large egg, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup coconut mil

For the Key Lime Glaze:

  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 and 1/2 tablespoons key lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

(Optional) Decoration:

  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut, toasted
  • 2 teaspoons lime zest

For the Key Lime Coconut Donuts:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F). Generously grease a doughnut pan; set aside.
  2. In a small bowl whisk together flour, baking powder and salt; set aside.
  3. In a large bowl combine the granulated sugar and lime zest; mix together with your fingers until zest is evenly distributed in the sugar. Add in the melted coconut oil and, using a whisk, mix until combined. Beat in the egg, then stir in coconut milk.
  4. Add in the dry ingredients and gently fold the mixture together using a rubber spatula, stirring only until mixture is evenly combined.
  5. Divide the thick batter evenly among the molds of your prepared pan, filling each mold up 2/3 of the way. Bake for 10-11 minutes, or until firm and lightly golden on the tops.
  6. Remove pan from oven and allow doughnuts to cool for at least 10 minutes in the tray before transferring to a cooling wrack to cool completely.
  7. Once cool, dip each doughnut in glaze and serve! The glaze does take a few minutes to set, so you may want to wait about 5 minutes after glazing to dig in but it's hard!

For the Key Lime Glaze:

  1. In a wide, shallow dish combine juice and sugar, and whisk to combine. If the glaze appears too thick, add a little more lime juice until desired consistency is achieved; if glaze appears too thin, add a little more confectioners' sugar until desired consistency is achieved. Carefully dip cooled doughnuts in the glaze, and let rest for 5 minutes - if you can wait - before serving. If you'd like your donuts to look exactly like mine do in the photos, top each glazed donut toasted coconut and extra lime zest.
