Makes: 6 Donuts
Prep Time: 15 Minutes
Cook Time: 15-18 Minutes

Nutrition Info Per Serving

Protein: 3g
Fat: 7g
Calories: 216

Ingredients:

¾ cup oat flour
¼ cup chia seeds
1 tbsp cinnamon
1 ½ tsp baking powder
½ cup maple syrup
¼ cup non-dairy milk, unsweetened (e.g. almond milk)
1 tsp vanilla extract
Coconut oil, for greasing the pan and brushing the donuts
3 tbsp cane sugar for coating
1 tbsp cinnamon for coating

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. If you need to make your oat flour, grind a ¾ cup of dried large flake oats in your blender until fine.
  3. Sift your oat flour, baking powder, and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Add the chia seeds, whisk together, and set aside.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together maple syrup, non-dairy milk, and vanilla.
  5. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and whisk until smooth. Do not let this mixture sit for too long because you don’t want the chia seeds to expand.
  6. Grease your donut pan with just a little bit of coconut oil. You don’t need too much.
  7. Distribute the batter evenly in the donut pan. Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  8. Allow the donuts to cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Remove them and allow them to cool completely.
  9. When the donuts are completely cooled, whisk together the cane sugar and cinnamon in a small, shallow bowl.
  10. Brush a small amount of melted coconut oil on all sides of each donut. Dip the donuts in the cinnamon sugar and coat completely.
  11. Serve and enjoy!
