I don't recall the last time I had a real donut, but I can think of a few memorable donuts that I've had in my time.  One was found in a tiny shack called "American Donuts" in Texas (if I remember right).  My family and I have a soft spot for stores in shacks so we filed out of our car and through the door.  And then, before our eyes, they pumped freshly made donuts with cream and jelly and handed us the best filled donuts we had ever had (and probably ever will have).  Ah, good times, good times.

The other?  Well, there isn't a specific other donut that lingers in my memory.  Instead, I'm referring to the couple of times when my brother and I made our own glazed donuts.  Seriously, there is nothing better than a warm, homemade, glazed donut.

I'm sure that the donut recipe I'm sharing today isn't nearly as good those gems, but it's still delicious.  Especially the icing.  If you don't want to make the donut, at least make the icing and put it on oatmeal or a muffin or something.  Or a spoon.  That would work great too.

Peanut Butter Icing Donut
The donut itself is simple in flavor, but I still love it.  Especially when drenched with peanut butter Icing.  Mmmm.  If you want to add more flavor to the donut, you could try increasing the amount of almond extract.
Makes 1 donut

Ingredients (for the donut):
  • 1/4 cup brown rice flour (or other flour of choice)
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 egg white 
  • 3 tablespoons Greek yogurt
  • 1/8 teaspoon almond extract
  • sweetener such as stevia, agave, maple syrup, or brown sugar.
Ingredients (for the icing):
  • 2 teaspoons peanut butter (I use salted)
  • 2 teaspoons coconut butter
  • 1 teaspoon pure maple syrup

Directions:
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg, and dry sweetener (if using).
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg white, yogurt, almond extract, and liquid sweetener (if using).
  4. Pour the wet mixture into the dry and stir until well combined, but don't over-mix.
  5. Spoon the mixture into a greased greased donut pan (I use coconut oil) and bake in the preheated oven for 12-13 minutes.  Check with a toothpick!
  6. While the donut is baking microwave the peanut butter with the coconut butter for 20-30 seconds or until the coconut butter is melted.  Stir in the maple syrup.
  7. Drizzle the icing over the warm donut and enjoy!

A single serving donut?! YES PLEASE!!! Love it! Just out of curiosity, how is the brown rice flour? I've never tried it! Does it have a different flavor or texture?

That sounds delicious, and not to mention pretty healthy too! I wonder if there's any other way to bake it without using a doughnut pan
