Almond Butter Baked Oatmeal

My brother & his girlfriend visited this past weekend so I wanted to make some yummy & healthy snacks. We knew we were going hiking at Devil’s Lake so I wanted to bake something that we could carry on the trek. If you are ever in Wisconsin, I highly recommend a day hiking trip here 🙂


No these donuts aren’t going to taste like a Krispy Kreme. They are not fried. They don’t contain sugar, eggs, dairy milk, etc. They won’t have that insanely sweet & sugary taste or airy texture. For some you may be thinking, how sad. But for someone who is used to a plant-based diet I rejoice.

My donuts are dense, filling, healthy, & protein & fiber filled. They also won’t make you feel sluggish or sick 🙂 Bonus, they are easy to make & you only need one large bowl to combine everything.

These can also easily be made into bars if you do not own a doughnut tin. However I do recommend purchasing one because things are just more fun in a doughnut shape.


So start your day off with one of my donuts that will leave you satisfied til lunch, energized & still hit your sweet tooth.
