Vegan, Gluten Free, Carob Donuts

Preheat oven to 350.
In a mixing bowl add and mix:

1 Cup Rice Flour Mix

1/2 Cup Carob Powder (works with cocoa too)

1 1/2 tsp Baking Powder​

1 tsp Konjac Powder

1/4 tsp Celtic Sea salt

 

In a measuring cup add:

1/2 Cup Maple syrup

3/4 Cup Coconut Milk

1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract

1/4 Cup Melted Coconut oil

Blend wet ingredients with a stick blender.
Add wet ingredients to mixing bowl and blend until well mixed.

Place batter in a silicone donut pan using a pastry bag or a large Ziploc bag with a hole in the corner.

Bake at 350 for 12 minutes.

When done, remove from oven and flip tray over onto a wire​ rack to cool. The donuts should all fall out nicely.

These donuts are delicious while still warm and fresh from the oven. I didn’t see the need for icing but that is optional. If I find an icing recipe that I like, I will add it here later. Enjoy!

Preheat Oven to 325 degrees. Grease a Loaf pan with Coconut oil.

1 ½ Cups Rice Flour Mix

¾ tsp Konjac powder

½ tsp Cream of Tartar

¼ tsp baking soda

¼ tsp Celtic Sea Salt

⅔ Cup Coconut Sugar    (OR 1 Cup Applesauce)    {OR ½ Cup Maple Syrup}

¼ Cup plus 2 Tbsps Grapeseed Oil (or melted Coconut oil)

 

When well mixed, add:

2 Eggs

½ Cup plus 2 Tbsps Coconut milk

2 tsp Vanilla Extract

(For Lemon Pound Cake, instead of milk and vanilla,

add 2 Tbsps Lemon juice and 1 Tbsp Lemon Zest)

 

Add dry ingredients to oil mixture and beat on medium speed until blended. Pour into loaf pan and Bake 55-60 minutes. Serve warm or cool.

 

If you want a sauce to serve with your pound cake here’s what I do:

For the Lemon Pound cake I make a Blackberry Sauce:

2 Bags of frozen Blackberries, thawed

3 Tbsps Maple Syrup

1/4 tsp Lemon Juice

Blend in a Vitamix until seeds are ground up.

Drizzle over each slice of pound cake and serve with Coconut Whipped Cream on top.

 

I have not tried it yet, but my next idea is to make the Vanilla Pound Cake and make a Cherry sauce to put on it. 🙂
