Raw Turmeric Donuts
Submitted by Maiah Miller
About the cook: I’m a fitness instructor in Southern California with a love of plant-based foods and healthy recipes. My taste-testers are my husband and twin daughters, and this one is a family favorite!
About the dish: When I wanted something delicious but still nourishing and anti-inflammatory, I created this recipe. These "donuts" are extra sneaky because they are raw and contain the superfood turmeric. While the melted vegan chocolate makes these extra yummy, try them without: they are still amazing, and 100% raw vegan without it!
National Origin: American
Estimated Time: Under 30 Minutes
1-1/2 cup raw cashews
6 Medjool dates
3 or 4 dried apricots
1-1/2 TBSP vegan protein powder of choice (optional but recommended!)
1/4 cup unsweetened flaked coconut
1-1/2 tsp pure maple syrup
1-1/4 tsp turmeric
Water if needed
1. Food-process all ingredients, adding water if needed for mixture to come together in a sticky ball.
2. Press into silicone donut pans (this is necessary for easy removal; you’ll never get them out of metal ones!!), freeze about 20 min and top with vegan choc chips melted with a bit of coconut oil (they are also great and totally raw w/o the chocolate). Sprinkle extra turmeric on!
