Instructions

Peanut Butter Donuts

  • Preheat the oven to 180C/360F. Grease a donut tin.
    A mini muffin tin or a cake pop tin can be used instead and cooking times will vary slightly.
  • Place the sweet potato, peanut butter and milk in a blender/food processor and mix until a smooth puree.
    Pour into a mixing bowl and lightly whisk in maple syrup, vanilla and egg.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and whisk lightly by hand to combine.
  • Pour the mixture evenly into 7 donuts. A mini muffin tin or cake pop tin can be used instead but the cooking times will vary.
  • Bake for 13-15 minutes.
    Allow the donuts to cool for a few minutes then remove from the tin and allow to cool fully before icing.

Chocolate Icing

  • Melt the coconut oil in a small saucepan over a very low heat.
    Whisk in the maple syrup and vanilla extract.
    Whisk in the cocoa until smooth and add the salt.
  • Spread the chocolate over the donuts.
    If the chocolate is too runny place in the fridge for 10-30 minutes before using.
    The donuts may need to be kept in the fridge if the temp is warm as the chocolate will melt.
