The holiday of Chanukah celebrates oil. But there is no need to go overboard with frying every dish to feel festive. Instead, opt for this lighter donut alternative on at least one day. It’s so delicious that you may decide to make them for all 8. —Beth Warren

Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and grease a donut pan with a little bit of coconut oil.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the spelt flour, salt, and baking powder, and mix together thoroughly.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix together the coconut sugar, melted coconut oil, apple cider vinegar, almond milk, and vanilla extract.
  4. Quickly add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients so the almond milk does not curdle.

  6. Remove donuts from oven and allow to cool. Add desired toppings such as melted chocolate, a glaze, or powdered sugar. Enjoy!
