This recipe is so good! I love donuts and was so sad when I thought that they had to leave my life forever... No more special trips on Saturday to get our donut fix in.....
Alas!They have not left! Enter in the Flat Belly Donut from Healing Gourmet's Kelley Herring.
.... Instead of being depressed and down, I get to lose weight while enjoying this! And my kids don't have to sacrifice their donut loving bellies either! This totally supports all the above mentioned diets to a T... so go ahead make this and enjoy!
Note: I purchased by donut pan at Bed Bath and Beyond... so glad I did! :) See bottom pic!
Flat Belly Donuts
Yield: 8 donuts
Active Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/4 cup shredded, unsweetened coconut
1/4 cup organic erythritol (in original recipe... however I did not use it)
1/4 tsp. stevia extract powder (to taste) (my adaptation was to use 1/2 tsp stevia)
1/4 tsp. Celtic Sea Salt
1/4 tsp. baking soda
6 pastured eggs
1/2 cup virgin coconut oil
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 Tbsp. organic vanilla extract
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Combine the coconut flour, shredded coconut, organic erythritol (if used), stevia, salt and baking soda in a large mixing bowl.
3. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs with the coconut oil, almond milk and vanilla. Add this to the flour mixture and stir until combined.
4. Fill donut molds about 2/3 full and bake for about 20 minutes, or until a toothpick in the center comes out clean.
5. Cool completely
6. Keep refrigerated in an airtight container for up to one week.
We topped them with a light sprinkle of stevia,you may do this mixed with cinnamon. Use Skinny Chocolate drizzled on top.... or make a cream topping from Coconut Cream, stevia and a bit of almond milk! Ooooo, or a nice struedel topping with butter, nuts, stevia and cinnamon... Next time for sure ;) (these suggestions are not included in the nutritional information)
One More Thing! You may always add a little cocoa powder to make this a beautiful chocolate donut! Just add a little more liquid, or remove a smidge of the coconut flour :) Happy eating!
