Who knew there was such a thing as healthy doughnuts?! I made these for Sean’s breakfast a few weeks ago and did not feel guilty about it because they are packed with antioxidants, omega 3 fatty acids, protein, and fiber ❤ Thanks ‘Oh She Glows‘ for yet another delicious recipe!
-3/4 Cup gluten free oat flour
-1/2 Cup chia seeds
-1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
-1/4 teaspoon pink himalayan sea salt
-1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
-1/3 Cup maple syrup or other liquid sweetener
-1/3 Cup nondairy milk
-1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
-Preheat the oven to 300 °F. Lightly grease a 6 – cavity doughnut pan with oil. Set aside
-In a large bowl, combine the oat flour, chia seeds, baking powder, salt, & cinnamon
-Add the maple syrup, milk, & vanilla & stir until combined. The batter will be very runny, but that is normal
-Spoon the batter into the prepared doughnut pan, filling each cavity to the top
-Bake the doughnuts for 22 – 26 minutes, until firm to the touch. A toothpick inserted into a doughnut should come out clean
-Cool the doughnuts in the pan for about 10 minutes, & then carefully invert the pan onto a cooling rack. The doughnuts should pop right out – if they don’t, let them cool a bit more & gently run a butter knife along the edges to loosen them up. Cool the doughnuts completely on the rack
Tip: A fun tin or bread pan will work just as well if you do not have a doughnut pan!
