Raw Vegan “Doughnut”

Almost 2 years ago, when I was being a demo girl for Twirly Girls at the San Jose Fitness Expo, I had a chance to meet Bryan Au, the author of Raw Star Recipes. He was super, super nice, and very enthusiastic about food. I got to sample two desserts that he’d made and was instantly sold. (Yes they were that delicious. :O ) Somehow, this is actually the very first recipe of his that I’ve tried out, but once I get my hands on chickpea miso, the rest will likely follow! I adapted this from his “Doughnuts” recipe! :] Since I didn’t put anywhere near as much flax seed (1/4 cup instead of 3/4 cup) as he did, I suspect this is why my doughnut didn’t “firm up” as much. To me, it didn’t really matter since it was still delicious (I just ate it with a spoon, haha).
