    Carrot Cake Donuts with Maple Cream Cheese Frosting

    Carrot Cake Donuts with Maple Cream Cheese Frosting

     

    Start by getting all your ingredients ready!  You're actually going to mix everything by hand in one mixing bowl - so easy! The only we forgot in this photo was the Guiltless Paleo Organic 7 Seed Flour... how did we forget that one?! :) 

    After your donuts are baked and out of the oven, make sure they cool completely on a baking rack. Then get your cream cheese frosting ingredients ready. You're going to mix them together in one bowl too - this is the easiest ever!  

     Dip, dunk and get those donuts covered in the frosting! 

    OMG yum! 

    It wouldn't be real life if you weren't wearing your baby! 

    Either garnish your donuts with just grated carrots. Or... 

     Add chopped pecans, too! And "donut" let anyone try to steal your other half! 

    Guiltless Paleo Carrot Cake Donuts with Maple Cream Cheese Frosting 

    Makes 6 donuts

    Ingredients:

    2 organic eggs

    1 3/4 c Guiltless Superfoods Flour

    1 T unrefined, organic coconut oil 

    2 t cinnamon

    1/2 t baking powder 

    1/4 t sea salt

    1/2 t vanilla extract 

    3/4 c coconut palm sugar 

    1 c fresh finely grated carrot

    1/4 c chopped pecans 

     

    Frosting:

    8 oz full fat cream cheese

    1/4 c real maple syrup 

    1/2 t vanilla extract 

     

    Directions:

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 

    Add all ingredients, except carrots and pecans, to a large mixing bowl and mix by hand with a wooden spoon until totally combined. Fold in carrots and pecans. 

    Spray a donut pan with non-stick cooking spray. 

    Spoon batter evenly into each of the 6 molds. 

    Bake for 15 minutes or until slightly golden. 

    Cool for at least 20-30 minutes before frosting, make sure they are completely cool or frosting will melt.

    Frosting:

    Put cream cheese, maple syrup and vanilla in mixer, start on medium speed and work up to high speed, mixing until smooth and creamy. Dip the rounded top of the cooled donuts in the frosting. If you want a more finished look, use a small spatula or icing tool to spread frosting evenly over donut. Garnish with grated carrot and pecans (optional). 

    Enjoy!
