Makes a total of three doughnuts and three holes
I felt so sinful consuming these! They taste buttery, sweet, rich, and cacao-ic (tee hee). Make sure the flax is ground very fine, otherwise you won’t get the smooth texture. These donuts even help you out with getting your greens. Enjoy…

What a simple and easy yet impressive dessert! I love this one! What a treat!
Nanaimo Bars are a delicious three-layered confection that originated in Nanaimo, BC. They are super rich, and usually made with tons of butter, sugar, and eggs. You can easily find these at coffee shops/Tim Horton’s/etc in Canada. This is my first attempt at making a raw version, and they turned out pretty well. The two outer layers are chocolatey, and the middle is usually a sweet custardy filling. Some places add mint or coffee flavoring here, but in this recipe, the almond butter makes it almost like an Almond Nanaimo Bar.
Layer 3 (below) is supposed to be a chocolate frosting. While it’s pretty good, if you have your own recipe for it, I would love to hear an alternate version.
These were delicious. The coconut oil is optional, but it really lends the delicious nutty, buttery flavor to these cookies. These should definetely be treated as-well-treats, but don’t be afraid to indulge: they’re still fathoms better than irradiated Betty Crocker wallpaper paste (a.k.a regular sugar cookies).
