Chia Seed "Donuts"

These chia-seed donuts are so scrumptious; I just LOVE them!!!! The ingredients are very few and the recipe itself couldn't be easier. I found this recipe in my favorite vegan cookbook, Oh She Glows by Angela Liddon.  These donuts make a healthy, filling breakfast or snack without any guilt whatsoever!!!

If you do not have a donut pan, do not fret! A muffin pan works nicely instead (the donut shape is just so fun). 

*This recipe makes only 6 donuts. So, if you want more, it can easily be doubled. 

3/4 cup oat flour
1/2 cup chia seeds
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/3 cup non-dairy milk
1/3 cup pure maple syrup <I used coconut nectar; you could use honey, as well>
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 300 F.  
Lightly grease a 6-cup donut pan <you can use a muffin pan instead>.

In a large bowl, combine the oat flour, chia seeds, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.
Add the maple syrup, milk, and vanilla and stir until combined.  (The batter will be runny.)
Spoon the batter in into your donut pan.
Bake donuts for 22 minutes, or until firm to touch.
Cool donuts in pan for 10 minutes then carefully pop them out to cool further on a cooling rack.
