Ingredients

Donuts

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup cold pressed refined coconut oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons milk, any kind
  • 1/2 cup fresh blueberries

Streusel Topping

Blueberry Glaze

  • 1/4 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

Instructions

Streusel Topping

  • Prepare the streusel topping first.  Grind up the freeze-dried blueberries in a food processor or blender until they become powder. 
  • In a small mixing bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, melted butter and ground up freeze-dried blueberries.  Mix until combined and set aside.  

Donuts

  • Preheat the oven to 350F degrees and adjust the oven rack to the middle position.  Lightly spray a donut pan with non-stick spray.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.
  • In a liquid measuring cup, combine the sour cream, brown sugar, melted coconut oil, egg, vanilla, and milk and whisk until well blended.
  • Using a rubber spatula, add the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients and gently fold the mixtures together until just combined.  Do not overmix.  Gently fold in the blueberries.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared donut pan.  Top each donut evenly with the prepared streusel topping.  Gently press into the batter just enough so it sticks to the top of the batter.
  • Bake for 14 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in a donut comes out clean.  Cool for 2 minutes in the pan then move to a wire rack to cool completely.

Blueberry Glaze

  • While the donuts are cooling, add the blueberries, powdered sugar and lemon juice to a blender and blend until fully mixed and the blueberries are broken down.  
  • Once the donuts are cooled, glaze the donuts. Either pour the glaze into a small Ziploc bag and snip one of the corners to glaze each donut in small, even lines.  Or you can just use a spoon to drizzle the glaze randomly over the top of each donut.
  • The donuts are the best enjoyed the day they are baked. Enjoy!
