Anyone who says the paleo/SCD lifestyle is boring or too restrictive is crazy! There’s SO much REAL food that you can eat and the possibilities are truly endless. Not only that, but it is so much fun to experiment with what’s available. Don’t believe me? Well, check out the baked DOUGHNUTS that I made below, inspired by a recipe from Multiply Delicious. Thanks PaleOMG for posting it on your Facebook page!
It’s kinda funny that I decided to make these considering I was never much of a doughnut fan, except as a kid (only glazed though – nothing else!). I’ve never even had a Voodoo Doughnut and I live in Portland. Honestly, I never had the desire, and then realized that gluten makes my body scream bloody murder.
*Note: I still cannot eat cocoa powder because of adhering to the SCD, so I omitted it from the recipe and instead of melted dark chocolate for the icing, I used melted coconut butter. Also, I was out of vanilla extract, so subbed almond extract instead. I only made a half batch, but my doughnut pan must be smaller than the one in the recipe because it still made six doughnuts. I even used one of my fresh duck eggs in the recipe, but combined it with two chicken eggs I had left in the fridge. These turned out fantastic and were insanely easy to make, as long as you have a doughnut pan (I picked one up for about $10 from Sur La Table the other day, specifically to make this recipe).
