Cinnamon Donuts!

Share it Please
Muahahaha! Finally! They are finished! Haha! >:)

Look just like donuts

Do I sound like a crazy evil scientist? Sorry, but I've finally perfected my donut recipe! It's taken ages to get the taste, texture, and shape right. Who knew that making donuts was such hard work? Especially baked ones.
Perfect with the coconut butter frosting

But don't worry! These taste just like the fried ones, except a bit different. They don't leave you with that sick feeling when you're done eating one twelve. And they're mini! Everything is better in miniature.

My family used to go to this breakfast place awhile back. I don't remember what it's called, though. Anyways, they had really greasy, really delicious food. The bacon was fried to perfection and the toast was crunchy, but not burnt. And the donuts! Oooh, the donuts. Jelly filled, cream filled, glazed, holes. Name a donut and they probably had it. Boy were the good too!

Poor donuts- they will soon meet their demise >;)

Back story aside, these donuts remind me of my gluten eating days. Moist and delicious cinnamon donuts with a frosting. Yum.

So don't feel guilty in indulging in a couple, because you know they have anti-inflammatory cinnamon, protein-packed almond flour, and, if you use the frosting, healthy fat from the coconut. See? Bet you feel better already. ;)

2 c. almond flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
2 T. arrowroot starch (Do NOT omit, this is your egg re-placer)
2 T. grape seed oil
1/4 c. applesauce or mashed banana (I used banana since we ran out of applesauce)
1/2 c. maple syrup or other liquid sweetener
1 tsp. vanilla
1-2 tsp. cinnamon

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Combine dry ingredients, then add the wet.
3. Grease and dust donut pan with almond flour. Fill each cavity 1/2 full (this is a crucial step, because it will determine what your donuts look like when they come out of the oven).
4. Grease mini muffin for donut holes. Fill these 3/4 full.
5. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.

To make the frosting combine maple syrup and coconut butter until it tastes right to you. Generally, we like ours to taste more like maple syrup than coconut, so I use more maple syrup. But your taste buds might be different, so adjust each ingredient to your liking.  

Nothing more to say, but yum

Inquiry of the Day:

Were donuts apart of your childhood?

Donuts were (and are still) a special occasion for us. I've always been a plain Jane kind of person and went with the glazed or powdered donuts. My dad, however, goes all-out and gets the cream filled. *rolls eyes* Still don't know how he likes those.
