Salted Caramel Muffin-Donuts

April 19, 2018

Salted caramel- Yes

Muffins- Yes 

Donuts- Yes

 

Enter the hybrid muffin donut! I couldn't decide what to make so I made both.  And aren't they just glorious! Minimal sugar, gluten free, dairy free- these make the perfect snack and they make a lot, so you can make them on a sunday and they can last 2 weeks! 

 


And when I say minimal sugar, I really mean it.  With only a 1/3 of a cup of sugar spread across 20 muffin donuts the only other form of sweetness comes from the dates that are used, which again, are minimal. 

 

 

 

 

 

INGREDIENTS 

 

Muffin-Donut Mixture:

1/2 cup almond meal 

1 3/4 cup gf free self raising flour 

1 teaspoon of cinnamon 

175ml of nut milk ( or other non dairy milk) 

2 eggs 

1/3 cup of melted coconut oil

1/3 cup of coconut sugar 

1 teaspoon of vanilla 

 

Filling:

1 tbsp almond butter 

1 tbsp date spread- or soak 3 dates in warm water and pulses to create a paste. 

1 heaped teaspoon mesquite powder 

1/2 teaspoon sea salt 

Coconut oil 

 

Glaze :

1 teaspoon of date spread 

1/2 teaspoon of coconut oil 

 

Mixture makes approx 20 donut-muffins. 

 

METHOD

 

Preheat oven to 180C

Grease a shallow muffin pan. 

 

Combine all dry ingredients in one bowl.  In a seperate bowl combine all of the wet ingredients and then add wet mixture to the dry. 

 

Filling: 

Mix almond butter, date spread, mesquite powder and sea salt together.  If you need to wet the mixture slightly then add some melted coconut oil to get the desired consistency.  I like to have it like a gooey caramel consistency.  

 

Add a tablespoon of the donut mixture to the shallow muffin tins and then add 1/2 teaspoon of the almond butter/date mixture to the centre.  Followed by a teaspoon of the muffin/donut mixture on top.  

 

Glaze: 

Combine the date spread and coconut oil to make a sticky glaze.  

 

Place donut/muffins in the oven for 20mins, then remove from the oven and allow to cool for another 10 minutes before removing your donuts-muffins from the pan.

 

Brush glaze over the cooled donuts.
