sweet potato vegan baked donuts

recipe adapted from the Cinnamon Quill

Yield: 6 donuts
1/4 cup millet flour
1/4 cup brown rice flour
1/4 cup tapioca starch/flour
1/4 cup potato starch (not flour)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon guar gum
1/3 cup brown sugar
4 tablespoons melted coconut oil
1/4 cup non-dairy milk (I used full-fat organic coconut milk)
1/4 cup + 2 Tablespoons organic sweet potato puree
1-2 teaspoons ‘pumpkin pie’ spice of your choice
Oil for pan

 

Preheat oven to 400F.

Oil a donut pan generously, including the top of the pan.

Combine wet ingredients together.

Then whisk all the dry ingredients in separate bowl.  Mix dry into the wet.

Divide among donut pan evenly. Spoon the batter (about 1/3 cup per donut) into the mold.

Place pan directly on center rack of preheated oven. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until slightly browned, and toothpick inserted in donut comes out clean.

Let cool for five minutes, then un-mold using a spoon.

Glaze:

2 Tablespoons melted coconut oil
1/2-1 cup powdered sugar (I used Zsweet, artificial sweetener)
2+ teaspoons of non-dairy milk (I used cream of coconut milk)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)

then some extra powdered sugar for dusting.

 

yummy!

About emashita

Nearly two years ago, I was diagnosed with pre-diabetes. My life didn’t change much, but in April of 2011, I became very ill and was diagnosed with full on diabetes. It was a bit of a wake-up call for me and I quickly changed my eating habits. I scoured the internet for information about what to eat and what to avoid when it comes to a diabetic lifestyle. I cut out refined sugars, glutens, rice and pretty much all starches. After 90 days, I went in for blood work and was told that I was free and clear of diabetes. To live a healthy lifestyle inside and out is challenging and rewarding all at once. I started this blog to share my delicious (e is for Emilie and mashita means delicious in Korean) life with friends & family, and of course with new friends that stumble upon my site.
