  • Preheat the oven to 400F
  • Mash the sweet potato in a large bowl. 
  • Add the ground flax and unsweetened applesauce to the mashed sweet potatoes and stir well
  • Add the almond butter and maple syrup to the mashed sweet potato mixture
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir well. The batter will be very thick and it might take a minute to all come together
  • Once the batter is done, spoon it out between 16 mini donuts. Use a spoon or use a ziplock bag with the corner cut off like a piping bag
  • Once the dough is divided, be sure to shape the donuts, making sure there is a clear hole in the center (or they will become muffins)
  • Bake at 400F for 25 minutes. 
  • Take out of the oven, cool slightly. Move to a parchment paper or wax paper coated baking sheet. 
  • Melt unsweetened bakers chocolate in the microwave for 1 minute
  • Drizzle the melted chocolate over the donuts using a spoon. Refrigerate until the chocolate has hardened.
