Baked Cinnamon Nutmeg Doughnuts

  IMG_0011

   Baked doughnuts have not been a hit with me. They always come out chewy and unappetizing. However, these  doughnuts are the complete opposite of my former experiences. They are fluffy and bursting with flavor!

   The first time I made these, I had just started experimenting with vegan baking and did not have any vegan butter.  So after some research I settled for what I had on hand, half of a ripe avocado. Other than the slight green color, no one could tell that avocado replaced the butter. I fell in love with these doughnuts and nearly ate the entire batch!

   Since that night, I have acquired vegan butter and the taste is still amazing. However, the color is more appealing.
