Easy Baked Avocado Donuts

Oh yes!  You read that right!  Baked avocado donuts.  And not only that, but they are so easy to make.  Last week I was sent a huge box of avocados from California Avocados Direct and I went straight to cooking.

Avocados are full of monosaturated fat – the good kind!  Plus, its a great substitute in baking.  I substituted 2 tablespoons of butter with avocado.

Buttermilk substitute

When I started to gather my ingredients I realized I didn’t have any buttermilk.  I looked up buttermilk substitute and found an easy solution.  Take 3/4 cup of milk and add 2 tablespoons of lemon juice.  Let it sit for 5 minutes.  The acid helps the milk ‘spoil’ just like buttermilk.  Which is a good thing.

The batter was very thick but tasty.  I added it to the my Wilton donut cake pan and baked them for about 10 minutes at 375.

I let them cool and then added the glaze and sprinkles.  The glaze is a basic butter and confectioner sugar mix.  While its still hot add the sprinkles so they stick.

    I love Avocados too!!! This is so clever! Way to keep it healthy and delish! I am going to try to modify these to be Gluten Free and Dairy Free for my daughter and her friend who can never have doughnuts after church! It’s so sad! This could be the magic solution. Which would also pump these kids full of sugar… hmmm. I might need to rethink this! haha Thanks again!
