The Simpsons Raw Vegan Donuts?! Am I for real? I sure am! Whip up Homer's fave snack and you'll be going d'oh-nuts at how great they taste.
Ingredients
For the donuts:
  • 2 scant cups (200g) cashews (soaked overnight)
  • 4 tbsp psyllium husk
  • 350ml water
  • ¼ cup coconut oil (melted)
  • ⅔ cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tbsp mesquite
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • Juice half a small lemon
  • 1⅓ cup ground almonds
  • 1 cup sprouted buckwheat flour or gluten-free oat flour
For the glaze:
  • ¾ cup melted coconut manna
  • ½ cup warm water
  • ¼ cup xylitol (powdered)
  • 1 tbsp freeze dried strawberry powder
  • 1 tsp freeze dried pitaya powder
Instructions
  1. Start by blending your soaked and rinsed cashews until a fine paste. Next, add the psyllium husk to water, stir until combined. Leave until it creates a gel-like consistency then add to the cashews and blend. Blend in your melted coconut oil, coconut sugar, sea salt, lemon juice, and mesquite until smooth.
  2. Transfer to a large mixing bowl and stir in your ground almonds and sprouted buckwheat flour (or oat flour) until it forms a dough. Moisten your hands and grab a handful of dough. Roll into a ball then place on a silicone/non-stick mat. Repeat until you use up all of your dough.
  3. Moisten your index finger and pop it through the middle of one of your dough balls. Start whizzing the donut around until you get a nice hole in the middle. Leaving on the silicone mat, place the donuts into your dehydrator and dehydrate at 115°F for 6-10 hours until they are nice and dry on the outside but all doughy on the inside. Remove from the silicone mat halfway through dehydrating to ensure the bottoms firm up.
  4. Once your donuts are ready it's time to make your glaze. Blend together all of your ingredients in a bullet style blender until fully combined and pour into a small but fairly deep mixing bowl. Take a donut, dip and twist into the glaze halfway until generously coated. Repeat until all of the donuts are covered. Sprinkle with your fave garnish and either serve immediately or place on a baking tray and refrigerate for 1 hour until set. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator and consume within 1 week.
Notes
