Yummy Recipe

I've been following Lil Runner's Blog and am dying to try this recipe! Yum! It has to be delicious and if it helps my children and husband eat veggies? I'm all about it!

Butternut Squash Quinoa Doughnuts

This was adapted from the banana quinoa muffins.

2/3 c quinoa flour (toasted ground quinoa)
1/2 c oatmeal
1 c whole wheat flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 to 3/4 c butternut squash
2 T maple syrup (might want to add more)
2 T coconut oil
1 T flaxseed (ground)
1/2 to 3/4 c almond milk
1 tsp vanilla

1-2 T Coconut oil
1-2 T Cinnamon
1-2 T Sugar

Mix the flours, oatmeal, powder, soda and cinnamon in a large bowl. In a smaller bowl, add the squash, maple syrup, coconut oil, flax, almond milk (start with 1/2 c) and vanilla. Microwave 20-30 seconds and let sit about 5 minutes. Add the wet to the dry. If the mixture is too dry, add more milk and/or squash. Bake at 325 for 13-15 minutes till set.

Dip one side into coconut oil then cinnamon sugar. Let cool. These aren't too sweet so the topping makes them!
