  1. Preheat oven 325 F. Prepare a donut baking tin with cooking spray.
  2. To a blender or food processor, add all ingredients layering the dry ingredients first, then the chickpeas, then the liquid.
  3. Blend on high until a smooth batter appears.
  4. Add blueberries to blender and fold by hand.
  5. Fill the donut cavities with the batter, filling until flush.
  6. Bake at 325 F 12-13 minutes until donuts have set.
  7. Remove from the oven and cool 2-3 minutes before flipping the donut tin upside down onto a cooking rack. The donuts should easily slide out. Cool donuts another 15 minutes on the wire rack prior to enjoying.
  8. Keep donuts in refrigerator to maintain freshness.


*Any flour will work in this recipe including coconut flour. If you use coconut flour, omit the oats & add ¼ cup tapioca flour instead.

**I do not like things to taste sweet. Test the batter and if you would like it sweeter, you can add up to ½ cup maple syrup total.

***For Vegan, swap the eggs with 2 flax eggs. 2 tbsp flax + 6 tbsp water

***I did not add anything to the top of the donuts, but if you want to fancy them up, you can us the cinnamon glaze in <a href=””>this recipe</a>
