Donuts

I began eating gluten free in 2008, and had to stop consuming sugar in 2010.  Gluten free companies have advanced greatly in the years since, and many edible gluten free products are now available on store shelves.

Fast forward to 2016, and I now eat low carb.  I never imagined I could happily consume another donut.

I found this recipe for almond flour donuts.  I didn’t have a donut pan, but I was determined, so I made them in my mini muffin pan.  They were good, and after spending a night in the fridge, they were better.  They were sticky, sweet, and delicious.  That was last week.

A few few days later, I found a recipe for gluten free low carb bagels, made in a … donut pan.  So I suggested to SpecialK that I would like to buy a donut pan.  I asked him if he would like me to get a full size pan, or a mini donut pan.  His reponse was perfect, “one of each”.

Well the donut pans (full size and mini) were delivered on Sunday, and we were home early on Sunday evening.  You saw this coming right?  I made more donuts.  I found that the recipe I used made 12 mini donuts and 4 full size donuts, all from one cup of almond flour.

After a night in the refrigerator, these were sweet and sticky!  I made a glaze for them, but I am looking for something different/ other/better.  When I find the right glaze, I will add it here.

The almond flour, Honeyville Blanched Almond Flour, was found at Costco.  We went  back to buy more, they were already done selling it.  We found some more at a different Costco, but you can also buy it online.  Amazon sells the same //ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?ServiceVersion=20070822&OneJS=1&Operation=GetAdHtml&MarketPlace=US&source=ac&ref=tf_til&ad_type=product_link&tracking_id=myglansufrli-20&marketplace=amazon&region=US&placement=B00HS01I1A&asins=B00HS01I1A&linkId=077ed76554065d31e1b96c6fb95f37d9&show_border=false&link_opens_in_new_window=false&price_color=333333&title_color=0066c0&bg_color=ffffff“>brand!
