Perfectly sweet and spiced, these Carrot Cake Oatmeal Baked Donuts are a delicious - and gluten free - dessert for breakfast! Made with oat flour, protein powder and egg whites, they’re healthy too!
For the spot-on flavor and texture (but with a bunch of added calories and fat), add in some nuts, coconut and top with a slightly-better cream cheese frosting. Gold!
I don’t know if it’s just me or Quarantine or what, but I feel like the carrot cake rave is still on. And we’re way past Easter at this point!
No complaints though. I love sneaking veggies into foods in ways that I can’t taste the actual vegetable at all. I do cauliflower in my oatmeal every morning.
So in a way I guess carrot cake anything is right up my alley!
I had made a dedicated list of carrot cake dessert recipes I want to try out back when this all started, it’s quite long actually.
Why carrot cake donuts though? Coz I really wanted to use my donut pan, make a breakfast-type recipes (aka something with oats) and just couldn’t say no to Crumb Top Baking’s recipe!
