It is Saturday morning and we all know what that means! Cartoons and donuts! Just kidding, but if you are craving a little piece of childhood, try this recipe.
1/2 cup vanilla whey (Jay Robb) 2 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp Celtic sea salt
4 TBS vanilla almond milk
1/8 cup Swerve (or Erythritol and a few drops of stevia glycerite)
Coconut oil or Ghee (for frying)
Nature's Hollow Jelly
3 tsp Swerve
Mix topping ingredients and set aside. Whisk dry ingredients together. Whisk egg with other wet ingredients, add to dry ingredients, and whisk to combine well. Fill a donut skillet, cast-iron pan, or dutch oven with oil and heat. When oil reaches around 350 to 360 F, drop batter into the oil. The batter will spread and puff up.
When the underside browns, flip. In another 30 to 45 seconds, it will be ready to remove. Be sure enjoy them ASAP, as they will lose their crisp if they sit too long.
Cut a hole with a knife through the middle and fill with jelly. I placed the jelly into a small ziplock and cut a small hole into the corner. I then squeezed the jelly into the hole.
Sprinkle with Swerve and cinnamon.
Nutritional Info: Makes 12 doughnuts, each about 2½ inches in diameter.
1 donut = 26 calories before frying (then it depends on the oil absorption), less than 1 gram of effective carbs:)
