Healthy Doughnut Balls with Lion’s Mane & Tremella

Brain-boosting, cinnamon ‘sugar’ doughnut balls for a super Sunday easy bake. Do we have your attention? :) This keto, gluten-free recipe hits the sweet spot with an almond flour base, healthy fats and brain supporting maca, Lion’s Mane and Tremella.

Lion’s Mane

Lion’s Mane mushroom has been described as ‘nature’s nutrient for the neurons. Studies have demonstrated that Lion’s Mane may support brain health by stimulating nerve growth factor (NGF).


Rich in vitamin D which helps to support our mood and serotonin levels, Tremella has been shown to potentially aid the development of the neurons within the nervous system, specifically relating to 'energising the brain'.


Maca is a rich source of essential vitamins, minerals, amino acids and phytonutrients and known to increase stamina and endurance. Studies have also supported the use of maca for elevating mood and mental energy.

Monk Fruit Sweetener

Monk fruit extract is one of our favourite sugar swaps. This natural sweetener has a zero rating on the glycemic index and also boasts impressive antioxidant properties.

2 tbsp of organic monk fruit sweetener or coconut sugar as a substitute.

2 tbsp organic maca powder

3/4 tsp baking powder

a pinch of salt

1 tbsp organic cinnamon

1 tsp Inner Atlas Lion’s Mane

2 tbsp melted organic coconut oil or ghee

2 tsp organic vanilla essence

Ingredient Notes

Monk Fruit sweetener can be a little on the expensive side when purchasing a whole bag from your local health food store and it may not be an ingredient you need to use all the time. We like to get ours from bulk food stores like The Source Bulk Foods or Naked Foods so we can purchase the small amount required for a recipe.
