Before I start raving about how phenomenal these donuts are let me begin by saying it has taken me YEARS and countless grain-free attempts to get to this point. Like a dog with a bone – I don’t give up. Unlike most (weird tasting) grain-free (includes gluten free folks) donuts that are near impossible to remove from the donut pan, or are like a dense rock cake – mine are airy, fluffy, and soft, with an amazing crumb. If you don’t want them to be keto simply omit the powdered erythritol for powdered coconut sugar, which is my kiddos and my favourite way to enjoy them. Compared to other sugar-laden donut recipes mine call for just 3 tablespoons! So, whichever way you prefer these donuts won’t buy you a ticket on the blood sugar rollercoaster. I check my levels with my CGM 😉
Now, let me indulge for just a moment. As a trained chef (turned clinical nutritionist) an obsession of mine is to ELEVATE & UPGRADE my favourite things. I will re-visit recipes that I thought were pretty good already to make them even better (type A over here, if anyone can relate?) Why do I wrack my brain like this? Firstly, it’s fun for me. A meditative outlet when i’m not seeing clients, reading lab reports, writing reports, or researching the scientific literature. It’s a challenge and one that is near and dear to my heart. I want to give you and my clients options. I am passionate about not taking away our favourite foods, but rather making swaps for them so we can have our donut and thrive too!
As you can imagine, creating recipes, writing up recipes and then having to put them up onto my website is VERY time consuming – I do not have an assistant. Also, this isn’t going to make me any bread and butter BUT… I do it out of love. Out of pure passion for thriving without deprivation. Some may say “I don’t have the time to make these,” and to that I would say, OK then don’t. This is for those of you who can find less than 45 minutes in your day once a month, or bi-monthly to make yourself a healthy treat. It’s near impossible to find a place to purchase donuts using such clean ingredients, but if you do, kudos to you! When you do make these, let me know. Enjoy these morsels of yumminess brought to you with so much love! x
