Sweet, cake-y, peanut buttery, and macro friendly!
Well here goes nothing, blog post number one! Thank you so much for joining me.
What will this blog be about?
Delicious recipes that are vegan and macro friendly, health and fitness advice, with an eye on mindfulness.
Don't you hate how most blogs have like 6 pages of a story before the recipe? Not here. Let's get started.
For the Donuts
60 grams Vital Wheat Gluten (1/2 cup)
60 grams All Purpose Flour (1/2 cup)
43-ish grams Stevia for baking (1/2 cup + 1 Tbs)
15 grams powdered peanut butter (2 Tbs)
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 pinch salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
73 grams unsweetened apple sauce (1/2 cup)
5 ounces plant milk, I used Good Karma Flax Milk + Protein
For the Frosting
equal parts powdered peanut butter and sugar free confectioners sugar, I use Swerve
about 1 Tbs plant milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
Combine the dry ingredients with a whisk: vital wheat gluten, AP flour, stevia, powdered peanut butter, baking powder, cinnamon, salt
In a separate bowl mix the apple sauce, vanilla extract, and plant milk. Stir to combine.
Gently stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Note: do not over stir. You want your dough to be combined and mostly smooth, but some clumps are ok. It will be on the thick side.
Spoon the mixture into a donut or muffin pan. You may need to prep your pan with a hit of cooking spray, my silicone molds didn't need it
Bake at 350 for 10-14 minutes or until a toothpick in the center comes out clean.
Allow to cool on a wire rack before frosting. Eat right away or let frosting set to harden slightly.
For the frosting- stir in small amounts of plant milk to your powdered peanut butter and powdered sugar mixture until a frosting consistency is reached.
The nutrition facts are estimated based on the products I used and weighed. Yours may differ slightly. The frosting is included in these- again yours will differ depending on exact quantity. If your pan is a different size simply adjust the number of servings per recipe (also please ignore the grams per serving)
