HEALTHY FLOURLESS ALMOND DOUGHNUTS

 

With temperatures dropping, we find ourselves spending more time indoors and warming ourselves with our favourite comfort food. Blogger and healthy food enthusiast Hedi Hearts (www.hedihearts.com) created this healthy version of almond doughnuts using our Almond Paste so we can have the comfort without the guilt. Enjoy!
