Gluten-Free Apple-Cinnamon Spirulina Donuts
Homemade Apple Cinnamon Donuts - With A Healthy Twist!
It's no surprise that in a world that moves as quickly as ours, we thrive off of grab and go meals! Especially when it comes to breakfast. While it makes sense to fuel your system first thing in the morning, the reality is that's it's often not practical to whip up a hot breakfast each day! Which is why having a stash of these apple cinnamon donuts in your freezer can be so awesome!
Keeping a stash of healthy breakfast foods in hand makes morning easy, quick and still fueling. And instead of hitting up the first donut shop you see, make your own!
These apple cinnamon donuts not only taste great but they’re healthy too!
Using a base of coconut flour means these donuts are gluten free as well as filling. Because coconut flour is high in fiber it helps keep you full while remaining low in carbohydrates. It also gives the donuts a lighter texture than other flours. Plus, coconut flour gives you a boost of healthy fats while giving the donuts a satiating flavor.
But these gluten free donuts are more than just good fiber and healthy fats. They also contain a secret ingredient to make them green… spirulina powder!
Spirulina is a fresh water algae that comes with a ton of health benefits and has far surpassed the label of “superfood”. This powder has healthy notes if B12, Iron, K2 and manganese (just to name a few) which tend to be hard for many people to work into their diets. Because it’s its optimal nutrient density, this superfood makes an amazing addition to your morning grab and go donut!
These homemade apple cinnamon donuts have a healthy twist and contain only natural sources of sugar.
They make a wonderful breakfast and store well in the freezer. Whip up a big batch and take one out the night before so it’s thawed in the morning. Plus, you can top them with your favorites! Whip up the gluten free donuts and top them with your favorite chia jam, nut butter or coconut whip cream. Make a few different kinds and perk up your morning by choosing whichever you’re craving!
Breakfast doesn’t need to be a choice between healthy and quick. With these homemade apple cinnamon donuts, you can have both! These donuts contain simple ingredients, no processed sugars and can be topped with your favorite spread. Plus, they’re gluten free and contain a powerful superfood to start off your morning!
