Ingredients

FOR THE CHIA POWER DOUGHNUTS

  • 3 ⁄4 cup 175 mL gluten-free oat flour
  • 1 ⁄2 cup 125 mL chia seeds
  • 1 1 ⁄2 teaspoons 7 mL baking powder
  • 1 ⁄4 teaspoon 1 mL fine-grain sea salt or celtic salt
  • 1 ⁄4 teaspoon 1 mL ground cinnamon
  • 1 ⁄3 cup 75 mL pure maple syrup or other liquid sweetener
  • 1 ⁄3 cup 75 mL non-dairy milk
  • 1 teaspoon 5 mL pure vanilla extract

Instructions

FOR THE CHIA POWER DOUGHNUTS:

  • Preheat the oven to 300°F (150°C). Lightly grease a 6-cavity doughnut pan with oil. Set aside.
  • For Blendtec: Place the oat flour, chia seeds, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon in your blender and then add the maple syrup, milk, and vanilla. Secure the lid. Use the BATTERS/SALSA Button OR Manual Speed 4/Medium until incorporated.
  • For Vitamix: Add all wet ingredients into blender, blend on Variable Speed #1 for 10 seconds and turn off. Add dry ingredients except chia seeds and blend on Variable Speed #1 for 10 sec and turn off. Add chia seeds and blend on Variable Speed #1 for 5 sec.
  • The batter will be very runny, but this is normal. Spoon the batter into the prepared doughnut pan, filling each cavity to the top.
  • Bake the doughnuts for 22 to 26 minutes, until firm to the touch. A toothpick inserted into a doughnut should come out clean.
  • Cool the doughnuts in the pan for about 10 minutes, and then carefully invert the pan onto a cooling rack. The doughnuts should pop right out—if they don’t, let them cool a bit more and gently run a butter knife along the edges of the wells to loosen them. Cool the doughnuts completely on the rack.
  • Drizzle Coconut Whipped Cream over top and enjoy. You can also use the whipped cream as a dip if you prefer a travel-friendly option.

*You can also use a muffin pan if you would like a non-traditional doughnut. Make sure you fill at least 8-9 wells.
