Recipe: How To Make Maple Almond Butter Donuts (Using Justin's)

If you attended our opening a couple weekends back, then you probably grabbed some Justin's almond butter packets on the way out. Our generous friends over at Justin's sent over a good amount of samples, so I decided to try out one of their own recipes and make some doughnuts. It gave me an excuse to finally buy a doughnut pan, after all.

Check out the recipe here for the full breakdown, but here's what you'll need to get started:

For the doughnuts:

  • Whole Wheat Flour 
  • Coconut sugar 
  • Salt
  • Baking Powder 
  • Cinnamon
  • Eggs 
  • Applesauce
  • Almond milk
  • Vanilla 

And, of course: 

Justin's Almond Butter. The recipe specifically calls for the Maple variety, but when it comes to baking, go rogue or go home, amiright? So I used 3 different varieties: classic, maple, and chocolate. 

I also didn't have coconut sugar or whole wheat flour, in other words I didn't follow the "guilt-free" part of the recipe, but they turned out tasting deliciously guilty anyway. 

For the final touch, the glaze is the cherry on top:

  • Justin's Almond Butter
  • Powdered sugar 
  • Almond milk 

Dip it in the glaze when they cool, and to give it an extra kick, swirl some chocolate almond butter on top. Go here for the full how-to on these doughnuts and make sure to give Justin's some love over on social media.
