FAQ

Can I swap the almond butter or macadamia nut butter? Absolutely! We used almond butter for the donut batter, and macadamia nut butter for the chocolate glaze; but you could swap the two or substitute either hazelnut butter or pistachio butter

What is arrowroot flour, and can it be swapped? - Arrowroot flour is a starchy flour that is paleo, grain-free and gluten-free. It helps to hold gluten-free baking together. You can swap it for equal parts tapioca flour (a similar starchy gluten-free flour).

How do you make a flax egg? - Flax eggs are amazing for vegan baked goods! One flax egg is made by combining 1 tablespoon ground flax with 2.5 tablespoons of water. Let it sit for 5 minutes to thicken, and use as an egg replacement in baked goods. For this recipe, we're using 2 flax eggs (2 tablespoons ground flax; 5 tablespoons water).
