Tried something a little different for breakfast today. Wanted a hardy sweet breakfast, like donuts, but without the sugar/carb overload for my kids. I saw this recipe for Coconut Flour Cake Donuts from Tastykitchen.com and tweaked it to fit for us.
These would be an S breakfast or snack or dessert if you are following the Trim Healthy Mama plan!
Coconut Mini Donuts with Vanilla Glaze
makes 28 to 30 mini donuts
I followed the ingredients in this recipe here except added these changes:
3/4 cup of sweetener (I used xylitol) instead of honey
2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1 stick of butter
1/4 cup of coconut oil (melted)
1/2 cup powdered xylitol (you can use truvia, or whatever sweetener you like but grind it fine)
2 tsp vanilla
1-2 tbsp. heavy whipping cream
Crack your eggs into your food processor. Add you sweetener and vanilla. Blend well. Add in your melted coconut oil. Blend. Add your coconut flour, soda, & salt. Blend for 30 seconds. Grease your donut molds well with coconut oil or butter. Press your batter into the molds. Bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees. Take them out and allow them to cool for a little while. In a glass bowl put your butter, coconut oil, powdered sweetener & vanilla. Melt them a little at a time till you get a glaze. You don’t want to melt it completely, just until everything is mixed together smoothly. Add your heavy whipping cream & mix again. Dip your donuts into the glaze and set onto a plate. Sprinkle nuts or coconut or whatever topping you want on top. Makes 28 to 30 mini donuts. Enjoy!
