Raw Doughut ( Gluten Free, Plant Based)

So I decided I’m not a baker. I am awful at creating gluten free baked desserts. So I’m going to stick to raw desserts.

Tonight I got a craving for a doughnut, so I’m all for a healthy easy version.

If you’ve got 10 minutes to spare I suggest trying these out.

I love how my food prep brain goes off and how I can create such great food off of minimal ingredients.

Onto the recipe!

Ingredients for the base of the doughnut:

1 cup gluten free oats

1 cup medjool dates

1/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut

Directions:

Add all ingredients to your food processor and blend until the dough is sticky. Then form into doughnuts. I rolled the batter into a large ball and formed the doughnut from that. Set on a cookie sheet.

Ingredients for frosting:

1/2 cup walnuts soaked for at least 30 minutes

1 tablespoon unsweetened shredded coconut

4 medjool dates

1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 cup non dairy milk

3 tablespoons pineapple juice ( I used canned pineapple for this, if using fresh blend in a chunk of the pineapple)

4 tablespoons coconut oil melted

Directions:

In a high speed blender add the walnuts, drain first. Add in all the ingredients and blend on high to a creamy consistency. I tried this in my food processor and it was a bit lumpy so I transferred it to my vitamix.

Once the frosting is done prepare the the doughnut by topping the oat base with a pineapple slice then add the icing and optional sprinkle on shredded coconut. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes then dig on in!

Hope you enjoy these as much as I did!
