Lemon Poppyseed Pronuts
- 1 1/2 c quick oats (gluten-free if needed)
- 1/2 c garbanzo bean flour
- 1 T flax
- 2 T poppy seeds
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- Pinch of pink himalayan salt
- Zest from 2 lemons
- 1 c natural apple sauce
- 3/4 c freshly squeezed lemon juice
- Sweetener if desired*
*I didn’t use any sweetener. If you’d like to add some I’d recommend just 1/4-1/3 raw local honey or agave. If using, reduce the amount of apple sauce used by the amount of sweetener you add.
- Preheat the oven to 350F. Spray the holes of a 6 hole donut tin or a 9 hole muffin tin with coconut oil spray & set aside.
- Add all your dry ingredients to a medium sized bowl & whisk to combine.
- Add in your wet ingredients & mix until everything is combined.
- Distribute batter evenly among your donut or muffin holes.
- Bake for 18 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean & your edges are golden brown. Enjoy!

Happy Almost Friday!
My brother & his girlfriend visited this past weekend so I wanted to make some yummy & healthy snacks. We knew we were going hiking at Devil’s Lake so I wanted to bake something that we could carry on the trek. If you are ever in Wisconsin, I highly recommend a day hiking trip here 🙂
No these donuts aren’t going to taste like a Krispy Kreme. They are not fried. They don’t contain sugar, eggs, dairy milk, etc. They won’t have that insanely sweet & sugary taste or airy texture. For some you may be thinking, how sad. But for someone who is used to a plant-based diet I rejoice.
My donuts are dense, filling, healthy, & protein & fiber filled. They also won’t make you feel sluggish or sick 🙂 Bonus, they are easy to make & you only need one large bowl to combine everything.
These can also easily be made into bars if you do not own a doughnut tin. However I do recommend purchasing one because things are just more fun in a doughnut shape.
So start your day off with one of my donuts that will leave you satisfied til lunch, energized & still hit your sweet tooth.
