| 10 - 12
Ingredients

Optional extras:

  • ¼ cups beet juice
  • 1 heaped Tbsp blueberry powder or fresh or crushed freeze-dried blueberries
  • coconut sugar and cinnamon mix
  • desiccated coconut and edible flowers for toppings

Basic glaze:

  • ½ cups macadamia nut butter
  • 3 Tbsp Coconut Blossom Nectar
  • 2 tsp of coconut oil or Cacao Butter, melted

Glaze flavour options:

  • 1 Tbsp Cacao Powder
  • pinch of sea salt
  • or ⅓ C fresh or freeze-dried blueberries (we used fresh in our recipe)
  • or ½ tsp vanilla powder or extract
Method

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 180℃.

Step 2: Mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl.

Step 3: Mix the wet ingredients together in a separate bowl.

Step 4: Gently fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients just until incorporated. Don’t over mix the batter.

Step 5: Using a piping bag or a large ziplock bag with the corner cut out, pipe the doughnuts into a greased doughnut pan filling about ¾ of the way full. Or you can spoon into a muffin tray if you don’t have one for doughnuts and don’t mind a muffin-shaped doughnut.

Step 6: Bake for 8-10 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool completely before glazing.

Step 7: To glaze the doughnuts, blend all the glaze ingredients together, pour in a bowl, then dunk each doughnut into the glaze. Top with shredded/desiccated coconut and edible flowers. Let them sit for the glaze to firm up slightly. Or skip the glaze and dust with finely-milled coconut sugar and cinnamon mix.

Notes:

♥ To get the iconic shape of doughnuts you need a doughnut pan, but if all you have is a muffin tray you can use that too.

♥ For a healthy flour alternative use a ratio of ½ whole wheat, ½ oat flour, even chickpea flour can be used as a healthy, protein-packed flour alternative.

♥ More reishi can be added to get more medicinal effect, but keep taste-testing as it can be bitter.

♥ The macadamia nut butter can be substituted with tahini, cashew, almond or smooth peanut butter.
