Last night I had one entire The True Spoon approved mezcal margarita so you better believe I’m moving like a herd of turtles today. I’ll take 100 pumpkin baked donuts with a Aiya Matcha glaze, please. 🤤🍩

Pumpkin Baked Donuts with a Matcha Glaze:

  • 1 cup gluten free 1 to 1 baking flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin purée
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup melted grass fed butter (sub vegan butter here to make vegan)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened nut milk
  • 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 2 tsp cinnamon

Glaze:

  • 2 tbsp warm nut milk
  • 1/2 tsp Aiya Matcha culinary grade matcha
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • Halloween sprinkles for the tops

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray two donut pans with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
  • Whisk wet ingredients and coconut sugar together in a large bowl. Mix in dry ingredients and distribute equally into 12 donut slots.
  • Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Once donuts are cooled completely after baking, make the glaze.
  • Whisk the warm nut milk and Aiya Matcha culinary grade matcha together in a shallow dish. Whisk in remaining glaze ingredients, except for the sprinkles.
  • Dip the tops of the donuts into the glaze and sprinkle with a few sprinkles. Let set completely before devouring!

These donuts are a huge hit! Sadly Poppy couldn’t have any but she will one day… if I don’t eat them all first. 🤠🍵

Apples to Apples

Chia Seed Applesauce

screen-shot-2016-11-11-at-12-08-41-pm

When my mother-in-law asked me if I wanted some apples, I didn’t think twice!

Who can resist free apples, some were fresh picked green apples from Julian, CA and the others were Honey Crisp apples that were on sale. How many apples could she really be giving me?…

One huge bag later I had enough apples to feed an army.

I’ve been following Amanda from Running with Spoons for a few years now. She has inspired my cooking in many ways, especially with her homemade strawberry chia seed jam!

With all the apples that were taking over my fridge, I needed a quick and easy way to use up most of them. This is were Amanda’s Easy Applesauce falls into place!

Im telling you, this girl is a genius when it comes to simple but insanely delicious treats. All I did to alter the recipe was throw in 1 tablespoon of Plnt chia seeds at the end of cooking.

Check out Amanda’s Easy Applesauce recipe, toss some Plnt chia seeds in there near the end of cooking, and let your house smell of cinnamon apples for hours! 🙂
