Turmeric Doggy Donuts (V, GF)


For the donuts:

  • Sprinkle of turmeric for garnish 


  1. Preheat oven to 350° F and grease a donut pan with coconut oil.

  3. Add all ingredients to a food processor and blend until smooth.
  4. Pour the mixture into the donut pan, filling them up about halfway.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown on the outside and spongy to the touch.
