I have been itching like you wouldn’t believe to make homemade doughnuts. In fact, surprisingly of all of the kitchen appliances/gadgets/pans I have, I didn’t even own a donut pan until recently. What better occasion than National Doughnut Day? I’ve teamed up with my foodie friends to bring you a collection of all-sorts-of-yummy delicious doughnut recipes today that will leave you drooling and headed to the kitchen to make your own! I just got back from my first trip to Portland earlier this week and doughnuts have been on my mind all week long. These are a much better alternative to the sinfully indulgent pastries I was partaking in.
I’ve been on a major gluten free kick. Not for any specific reason (aside from the stories circulating about wheat that I’m not quite sure what to think of) but mostly because using oat flour has become my new favorite thing. If you missed my How To Make Your Own Flour & Nut Milk series I highly suggest you check it out. While buying oat flour is easy peasy, it’s just as easy to make your own. Back to the doughnuts. That’s why you are here. I made these for my mother-in-law on Mother’s Day and almost didn’t make it out the door with any. They are SO delicious, I was super surprised with how healthy they are that they would be AS tasty as they are.
