Carrot Cardamom Donut Cookies by Stephanie


If any of you have not stopped by Stephanie's blog you really should. She is an inspiration to other teens by trying to live a well-balanced healthy Vegan life and writing a cookbook too. Here is her link. http://summerloco.blogspot.com/

A week ago or so she asked if anyone would like to test her recipes. I once again jumped at the chance. I love to test recipes. Today I tested her donut recipe. Remember I said she is living a healthy life and these donuts are just that. Baked not fried and gluten free. In her recipe she gives both the sugar version or powdered stevia version. I used liquid Kal Stevia and probably should have used more than I did. Mine turned out not as sweet as the family would think donuts should be. They are similar to a cake donut and not the puffy ones that many are used to. I mixed together a couple tablespoons of sugar and some cinnamon and dipped them when they came out of the oven. DD would like more cinnamon. She adores the stuff. I also did not have a donut pan, which DH tried to find and buy me so I used a mini-bundt pan and they turned out cute. Overall I think these are going to be a great addition to her ever growing list of recipes for her cookbook. Keep up the good work Stephanie.

I can't believe she's writing a cookbook and she's only 14! From reading her posts, she's had some issues with food that she seems to have conquered.
