Ingredients (makes a dozen)
- 1 cup all purpose or whole wheat flour
- ½ cup almond flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ⅛ teaspoon coarse salt
- 1 medium ripe avocado, mashed
- 1 large egg
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 cup milk
- 1 ½ teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- ½ cup powdered sugar
- 2 tsp water or milk
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Spray a donut baking pan with cooking spray (or make aluminum foil cylinders with a flat bottom and set them in the middle of a muffin tin).
- Sift flours, baking powder, baking soda and salt into a large mixing bowl.
- In a separate mixing bowl, mash the avocado and mix in egg until smooth. Add sugar and olive oil and mix until smooth. Whisk in milk and vanilla extract.
- Pour wet mixture into dry ingredients while beating on low. Increase the mixed speed to medium and beat until well incorporated.
- Pour batter into each well of the prepared donut pan about ¾ of the way to the top (about ¼ cup in each) – do not cover the donut hole center.
- Bake for 13-15 minutes, until toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove from oven and allow to slightly cool. Flip them onto a baking sheet fitted with a wire rack.
- In a small bowl, mix powdered sugar and water or milk. Dip each donut into the glaze or pour a tablespoon of glaze onto each donut.
