Sweet Potato Pie Mini Oat Donuts

Monday, July 8, 2013

It's been a while since I've posted a recipe. So I figured, what's the best food to start up again? Donuts, of course.

I have this weird obsession with donuts and my goal in life is to make them as healthy as possible, but still taste good. Maybe when I master that, I will share my goodness (and by goodness I mean donuts) with the local folk.

So here are my sweet potato pie mini donuts. Gluten free, vegan, and maybe even paleo.

  • 1 large sweet potato, cooked
  • 1/4 cup gluten free oats
  • 1/4 cup almond milk (or milk of choice)
  • 1/2 - 1 cup almond flour (if you want your donut more gooey-ish, use less flour)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 drops of stevia sweetener (or 1/4 cup sugar)

  • Handful of gluten free and vegan marshmallows
  • Small drizzle of almond milk
  • Some cinnamon for garnish

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Put all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. You can add more flour if you want your donut consistency to be thicker.
  3. Pour your mixture in a donut pan, your Baby Cakes Donut Maker, or a muffin pan (like I did, just make sure to not add too much batter in each cup.
  4. Let bake for 20-30 minutes until filling is cooked.
  5. Take out of oven and let cool. 
  6. If using muffin pan, pop out your little cakes and let cool. After cooled, take a water bottle top and cut out the middle. (thanks Undressed Skeleton of this neat idea).
  7. Add marshmallows and milk in small bowl and microwave for 10-15 seconds or until melted (could take 30 seconds, but you want to make sure it doesn't burn, so only microwave for 10 seconds at a time).
  8. Dip the tops of your cooled donuts in marshmallow and let cool. Place in refrigerator for quicker hardening. The tops are still a little sticky, but that's okay! It's ooey gooey goodness.
