Easy and delicious recipe!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups gluten free oat flour (gluten free oats ground into a flour)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sweetener of choice (I used a stevia blend, monk fruit sweetener)
  • 1 T baking powder
  • 1 T Saigon cinnamon
  • pinch sea salt
  • 1 cup milk of choice (I used unsweetened coconut milk)
  • 1 flax egg (can sub for 1 large egg if not vegan)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 6 T drippy almond butter (can sub for any nut butter)

 

For the protein frosting:

  • 3 scoops vanilla protein powder (see recommendations above)
  • 1-2 T granulated sweetener of choice (optional)
  • 1-2 T nut butter of choice (optional)
  • Milk, to thin out batter

For the cinnamon coconut butter frosting:

  • 4-6 T coconut butter, melted
  • 2 T granulated sweetener of choice
  • Dairy free milk, to thin out

Instructions:

  • Preheat the oven to 350. Grease a 12 count doughnut pan or muffin pan with oil/butter/cooking spray and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add the dry ingredients and mix well.
  • In a small bowl, whisk the milk, vanilla extract and egg/flax egg. Pour into the dry mixture. Add the melted nut butter and mix very well until a batter is formed.
  • Transfer the batter to the greased doughnut pan. Bake for 20-30 minutes, or until golden brown on top and a toothpick comes on clean. Remove from oven and let sit in the pan for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Once cooled, frost.

To make the frosting:

  • Combine all the ingredients and using a tablespoon, add milk until a relatively batter is formed. Drizzle over the doughnuts, one at a time. For the cream cheese one, allow to sit at room temperature until it softens. Mix with granulated sweetener and cinnamon. Spread over each doughnut.
