Super Chia Doughnuts

You cannot have dessert until you Eat Your Doughnuts!

Can you imagine proudly saying such a statement?  You will, after you see & try this easy, quick and delicious recipe.

Recipe:

  1. 3/4 cup oat flour (make your own by blending rolled oats in a blender)
  2. 1/2 cup chia seeds
  3. 1.5 teaspoons baking powder
  4. 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  5. 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  6. 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  7. 1/3 cup liquid of choice (experiment with coconut milk, hemp milk, almond milk, water, etc)
  8. 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 300°F.
  2. Lightly grease a 6 cavity doughnut pan (muffin tins will work equally as well).
  3. In a large bowl, combine ingredients 1-5
  4. Add ingredients 6-8 to dry ingredients (note: it is normal for batter to seem “runny”)
  5. Spoon batter into each doughnut, or muffin cavity.
  6. Bake 22-26min (note: finished cooking if you pierce with a fork, or toothpick, and it comes out clean)
  7. Cool in tins for 5min and then flip onto cooling rack for an additional 10+min to finish cooling

Good to know: doughnuts refrigerate & freeze very well!  I always double, or quadruple my batch, to have plenty for weeks of school & work snacks

Notes:

  • This fantastic recipe was adapted from the fabulous Oh She Glows cookbook (if you love healthy, easy and sinfully nutritious foods, you should buy this cookbook)
  • although I make these doughnuts on a weekly basis (including the variations… I love them with coconut milk the best!) my photograph skills are horrible.  This awesome photo is via www.lawrence.com
