Happy National Donut Day!

Today, the donut has to share the spotlight with yummy veggies in my veggie-lovers’ donuts.

The best part is, you don’t have to turn on your oven and your veggies are ready in less than 5 minutes for breakfast or a snack.  One recipe includes a full delicious serving of veggies.

Yields 1 mug cake, 2-3 donuts

Ingredients

  • 1 cup fresh spinach or kale, or 1/2 cup frozen spinach or kale
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 Tablespoons vanilla unsweetened almond milk (or milk of choice)
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 2 Tablespoons coconut flour (If using whole wheat flour use 3 Tablespoons)
  • 2 Tablespoons rolled oats
  • 1 Tablespoon ground flax
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • dash of vanilla
  • Optional: 1-2 teaspoons maple syrup or honey*, mini chocolate chips, nuts
  • *highly recommend adding something sweet if you are using kale.

Instructions

  1. Place the spinach or kale in a small microwave safe bowl with 1 tablespoon water. Microwave for 30-60 seconds. If you are using frozen spinach or kale it should be thawed, if you are using fresh it should be slightly wilted.
  2. In a mini food processor, or blender mix eggs, milk, prepared spinach or kale (see step 1) and banana until greens are finely shredded.
  3. Pour into a medium bowl and add remaining ingredients. Mix until incorporated, but do not over mix. The texture should be very thick.
  4. Spray microwave-safe mug, or donut tins. Pour batter into mug or tins. If you are using donut tins it should be spread over 3. Microwave 3-4 minutes. The "cake" should be very moist, but no longer runny. If you are using donut tins you will divide the mixture over 3 tins, so the cook time will be about 1 minute each.
  5. Serve warm. Drizzle or glaze with melted chocolate for an extra pinch of YUM!

If you haven’t made mug-cakes before, they are exactly as they sound. Cakes made in the microwave in a mug.
