I have been loving using coconut flour lately from making pancakes to banana breads. Coconut flour is great for those who need to maintain a gluten free diet but also has many other benefits. It is rich is protein, fibre and healthy fats. Coconut flour is also a great source of manganese which helps with bone health, nervous system function and helps to maintain optimal blood sugar levels. So why not use it!
These donuts use coconut flour and are a great snack to pack with your lunch or perfect for the mid morning or afternoon cuppa. Plus I feel like donuts are everywhere lately and at least these are a bit of a healthy alternative if you don’t feel like really indulging and saving a few cals.
