To make these delightful donuts, you’ll need:

1 cup of almond flour
1/2 cup of oat flour (you can make this by blending oats in a food processor)
1/4 cup of coconut flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
A pinch of salt
3 large eggs
1/2 cup of unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup of honey or maple syrup
1/4 cup of unsweetened almond milk
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
1. Preheat the Oven:

Begin by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C). Lightly grease a donut pan with coconut oil or your preferred non-stick spray.
2. Mix Dry Ingredients:

In a large bowl, combine the almond flour, oat flour, coconut flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Mix well to ensure all ingredients are evenly distributed.
3. Combine Wet Ingredients:

In another bowl, whisk together the eggs, unsweetened applesauce, honey or maple syrup, almond milk, and vanilla extract until smooth and well combined.
4. Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients:

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Be careful not to overmix, as this can make the donuts dense.
5. Fill the Donut Pan:

Spoon the batter into the prepared donut pan, filling each mold about 3/4 full. You can use a piping bag or a zip-lock bag with the corner cut off for easier filling.
6. Bake:

Place the pan in the preheated oven and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the donuts are golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
7. Cool and Serve:

Allow the donuts to cool in the pan for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
Optional Glaze
For an extra touch of sweetness, you can make a simple glaze using:

1/2 cup of powdered erythritol (a natural sugar substitute)
2-3 tablespoons of unsweetened almond milk
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Mix the powdered erythritol with almond milk and vanilla extract until smooth.
Dip the cooled donuts into the glaze and place them back on the wire rack to set.
