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.
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.
- 2 teaspoons peanut butter (I use salted)
- 2 teaspoons coconut butter
- 1 teaspoon pure maple syrup
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- In a small mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg, and dry sweetener (if using).
- In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg white, yogurt, almond extract, and liquid sweetener (if using).
- Pour the wet mixture into the dry and stir until well combined, but don't over-mix.
- 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!
- 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.
- Drizzle the icing over the warm donut and enjoy!
