Hello lovelies! These doughnuts are absolutely delicious; I was so excited at how well they turned out. They are paleo, grain-free, and use only simple ingredients that combine to create amazing flavor! The one thing I really like about using a Cassava/Coconut Flour combination is that the texture doesn’t turn out weird or have a strange flavor but instead tastes even better than bad-for-you grains. How cool is that? This is a perfect summery treat, enjoy! (PS: Always try to use Organic ingredients if possible, so much better for your body!)
