  1. I was looking for something easy and near-vegan when my husband and I were wanting donuts (we don't eat them normally) and I found your amazing recipe. We are ok with eggs so this was perfect.

    This recipe is GOLD. I added pecans and chocolate on top because we do have chocolate once in a while and they're absolutely incredible. Better than any store bought donut we'd ever had before we stopped eating "useless foods".

    I can't thank you enough for this. They are so easy and quick and I always have the ingredients on hand!

    1. Hey Jeannie! My reply is SO LATE, but thank you so much for the comment. That makes my day! I've been so slack on the recipe development front since having a baby, but hopefully I'll get back into it and have some new recipe for you one day :)
