Gluten-free, egg-free, grain-free fig pistachio goat cheese donut recipe.
Things are going well over here. Michelle had a follow-up appointment with her allergist to review her patch testing. She plans to share more updates soon but so far no real solid answers yet. So on to the next doctor. We are all staying hopeful. Today we are busy running around getting my house all clean for the baby shower tomorrow morning. Plus, Michelle and I are baking some goodies for the event!
Now moving on to the main highlight for you to enjoy today… our newest FAVORITE baked egg-free donut!! We are jumping with joy over here as we are so excited to be sharing them with you! We cannot wait for you to make them yourself to discover how amazing this flavor combo is together 🙂
It has been a long time since we’ve shared a donut recipe.
Crazy, how have we been surviving?? 😉
Last week we made these donuts and they were seriously the best thing we ate last week. We cannot stop thinking about them.
The recipe came about as Michelle is avoiding eggs at the time. We were both beyond thrilled with how well these donuts turned out and we think you will be too!
Egg-free, grain-free pistachio donuts with a fig goat cheese honey frosting
They are extremely soft with a little moistness to them. A soft sponge-like texture that comes from the arrowroot starch.
Now we know we are going to get asked for substitutions and some things might work, but others, coconut flour for example is REALLY hard to replace.
The donut part of this recipe is vegan. But we topped it with a goat cheese fig spread, so you will have to use a non-dairy cheese to keep it vegan friendly.
Everything needed for the perfect donut in our opinion, would you agree?
These donuts are bursting with flavor!
