Kinako donuts

I love the earthy nutty flavour of Kinako (Japanese roasted ground  soy bean powder )

It is also very nutritious containing B vitamins and protein

you often find in on many Japanese dessert so I decided to make baked cake donuts with it and a kinako frosting for the top.

You will need

in one bowl add

2 cups of oat flour

3/4 cup kinako

2 teaspoon of baking powder and 1 teaspoon baking soda

In a separate bowl

1/2 cup apple puree

one tablespoon of melted coconut butter

1/2 cup soy milk

1 teaspoon brown rice vinegar

2 tablespoon brown rice syrup

1/2 cup of unrefined granulated sugar

mix wet into the dry and mix into a batter . If it’s to wet add more flour to dry add a little more milk .

Brush a donut pan with melted coconut oil and spoon in your mixture

Bake in a moderate oven for about 20 mins til risen and golden

Take the donuts out if they have lost their hole just remake it again with a toothpick .

Leave to cool then turn out.

using a cup of icing sugar and a tablespoon of kinako add a little water at a time until you get a thick frosting.

decorate your donuts with frosting ( I also added toasted hazelnuts and a drizzle of vegan chocolate )

place in the freezer to set . I tend to keep mine in the freezer and take them out one at a time and defrost them when I want one .
