Flourless Coconut Lemon Donuts for Spring

Happy Wednesday!

Wednesday is probably my favourite day of the week.

It’s… SURVIVOR NIGHT!

 

Yep, I have watched that show religiously since I was seven years old, and still have full belief that they will one day accept Canadians as tribe members. It’s happening.

 

It’s the challenges, the social aspect, and probably a sprinkle of tropical island beauty that makes Survivor so appealing. My hometown is currently in an apparent ice age, so a tropical island sounds FANTASTIC.

I’m counting on Spring being around the corner- maybe some donuts with flavours which say “spring” will do the trick??

I wrote a post for Brew Your Bucha, (Derek was a guest contributor last week!), for my favourite flourless donut recipe! Perfect for mother’s day or simply sandwiched with coconut milk ice cream, these donuts are a light 114 calories each, and taste like the essence of spring! Lemon and coconut flavours shine in this flourless, digestion-friendly recipe.
