Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • Olive oil cooking spray
  • 1 Lara Bar - Peanut Butter Cookie flavor
  • ½ cup (2 ounces) super fine almond flour
  • ¼ cup avocado oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon coconut sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • COATING
  • 2 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon fine sea salt (see note below)
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees and spray a 12 cavity mini muffin pan with olive oil cooking spray.
  2. Cut the Lara Bar into 36 pieces (roughly the same size) and place 3 bits each (evenly spaced) into the cavities of the mini muffin pan.
  3. Combine the almond flour, avocado oil, egg, 1 teaspoon coconut sugar, vanilla, and baking soda and mix until smooth.
  4. Place the batter in a piping bag or plastic storage bag. Snip off a tiny piece of the corner/end of the bag and pipe the batter into the donut cavities.
  5. Bake for 10 minutes on the bottom rack of the oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of one of the donuts comes out clean.
  6. Combine 2 tablespoons coconut sugar with the sea salt in a medium bowl. Place 2 or 3 mini donuts in the bowl and toss with the sugar/salt mixture until the donuts are well coated. Repeat with remaining donuts. Makes 12 mini donuts.
Notes
Note: If all you have on hand is coarse salt you can process it in a blender or food processor until it’s very fine. Fine sea salt will adhere better to the donuts than coarse, kosher salt.
