  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease a doughnut pan.
  2. Whisk coconut flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt together in a large mixing bowl.
  3. In a separate mixing bowl, beat the egg yolks with honey, coconut oil, and apple juice.  Then pour them into the dry ingredients, and beat until smooth.
  4. Beat egg whites until light and fluffy.  The, fold them into the batter.
  5. Pour batter into doughnut pan. {Cara's note: I dropped the batter with a spoon around the circle in the doughnut pan, also, if it's not spreading when you drop it in, add another egg to the batter- grain free baked goods depend a lot on eggs, and if the flour is a different coarseness or the eggs are a little on the small side, they'll need another}
  6. Bake about 20 minutes. Allow them to cool until comfortable enough to handle, then gently remove them from the pan and set them on a cooling rack. Sprinkle with additional cinnamon, and serve.
