hello erin »

donut day.

As i’m sure everyone knows friday was national donut day. Just about the best day EVER, and one of the most delicious days to celebrate. Lex and i got up friday morning and busted out the donut maker so we could make and decorate donuts. As usual i did all the work, and she just begged and pleaded for me to feed her frosting. In an effort to be healthy we decided to make agave-sweetened plain donuts (and then make them un-healthy by coating them in strawberry icing and sprinkles).  This isnt my first time making these donuts- and while they’re definitely not as delicious as regular donut-shop donuts, they’re still pretty tasty!


you’ll need:

– 1/3 cup melted coconut oil
– 3/4 cup rice flour
– 1/3 cup sorghum flour
– 1/2 cup potato starch
– 1/4 cup arrowroot
– 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
– 1/2 tsp salt
– 1/8 tsp baking soda
– 1/4 tsp xanthan gum
– 3/4 cup agave
– 6 tablespoons applesauce
– 1/4 cup vanilla extract
– 1/4 cup hot water.

first whisk together the flours, potato starch, arrowroot, baking powder, salt, baking soda & xanthan gum. Add your agave, coconut oil, applesauce, vanilla & hot water and mix until its nice n smooth. I always put the batter into a large ziplock, snip a corner and squeeze it into the donut molds like that. Wait 2-3 minutes and presto! you have delicious donuts. Let cool and frost (if you want, but they’re also delicious if you brush them with melted vegan butter and sprinkle stevia & cinnamon on them–which is WAY healthier than our frosting!).


Next time we make donuts (which will probably be like tomorrow) we’ll be making the Tone It Up donuts. Way simpler, better ingredients, and i LOVE their perfect fit protein powder, so i’m sure they’ll be tasty. . . and maybe we’ll ditch the frosting (which lex totally wont approve of).
