Since going gluten free my doughnut dreams have been somewhat shattered and my relationship with these baked goods have come to a stand still as I have yet to find a doughnut that tastes like the Krispy Kreme’s I used to devour and love.

Fed up with waiting, I decided to make own version inspired by a peanut slice I picked up at The Good Earth a while back. I had to satisfy my doughnut cravings somehow and this was the perfect flavour to do it with because let’s be honest these nutty caramel chocolatey rings scream deliciousness. Not only are they naughty and totally scrumptious, they’re raw, vegan and made with good for you ingredients. What more could you want?

With a soft nougat base, chocolate coating and caramel drizzle, these rawified snickers doughnuts are totally scrumptious.
