Why give up enjoyable eats when you don’t have to? We all love eating something sweet every once in a while. Rather than entirely giving up sweets, finding a sugar free or super low glycemic index alternative is a more sustainable way to lower sugar intake. These incredible herbal donuts are packed with protein, healthy fats, and our most famous hair growth blood tonic herbal extract, He Shou Wu.
Chai Spiced Donuts:
6 pastured raised eggs
2 teaspoons Hyperion He Shou Wu Extract
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup coconut sugar.
1/4 cup grass-fed ghee
1 teaspoon organic lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon food grade baking soda
1 large pinch of sea salt
2 teaspoons organic vanilla extract
2 teaspoons cinnamon powder
1 teaspoon ginger powder
1/2 teaspoon clove powder
1/4 teaspoon fresh grated nutmeg
1 teaspoon cardamom
1 pinch black pepper
Ghee Spiced Icing:
1/3 cup grass-fed ghee
3 tablespoons powdered birch xylitol (You can do this by grinding birch xylitol crystals in a Vitamix blender to get rid of the crunchy texture)
1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon organic vanilla extract or vanilla powder.
1. Set Oven to Preheat at 350*F.
2. Mix ingredients together in a mixing bowl, and do so in order listed. One option is to use a stand mixer, or pre-sift the coconut before using, in order to avoid clumping. The key is to mix it fast so it doesn’t clump!
3. The chai spices are flexible in proportion and can be altered to your personal taste preferences. Feel free to add more or less of your favorite chai spices.
4. Grease a donut pan. I personally love ghee so I use it instead of other oils to grease the pan. Use a BPA free Donut Pan such as this one, which can be ordered through amazon.
5. Place batter into donut pan.
6. Bake donuts 14-19 minutes at 350*F. Donuts are ready when a fork comes out clean.
7. Boost the flavor by adding more chai spices and powdered xylitol (Mix several teaspoons of powdered xylitol with some of the chai spices in a small bowl, and dip donuts into it.)
Ghee Spiced Icing: (Optional)
1. Place donuts into freezer for 15 minutes, while you prepare the icing. Avoid entirely freezing the donuts. Making it slightly cold will enable the icing to harden on contact.
2. Gently melt ghee in a double boiler or pan. You can easily innovate a double boiler by taking a small glass bowl and placing it over a small pan of hot water (around 1 inch)
3. Ideally just minimally melt the ghee while mixing in the powdered xylitol. When it is luke warm it is the best time to pour it over the donuts, as it will harden more evenly. If it becomes too hot, cool it for second in the fridge.
4. Pour or spoon the glaze over the chilled donuts and wait a few minutes.
Enjoy – these donuts are beyond delicious! These donuts are grain and gluten free, loaded with healthy fat and protein, and even support the blood, hair and connective tissues!
