  • ¾ cup oats
  • 2 tablespoon unsweetened shredded coconut plus extra for serving
  • 1 ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon ground turmeric
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • cup pure maple syrup
  • half of a super ripe banana - mashed
  • cup oat milk or other milk of your choosing
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • pinch of black pepper


  • Preheat oven to 300F (150C) and lightly grease a doughnut/donut tray (I use fractionated coconut oil)
  • Put the oats, coconut, baking powder, turmeric and salt into a food processeor and blitz until it resembles fine flour. Add to a large bowl
  • Add in the maple syrup, mashed banana, oat milk, vanilla and black pepper. Stir well to combine
  • Spoon the batter into the donut tray (there will be enough for 6 donuts)
  • Bake for 24 minutes, they should be firm to the touch
  • Allow to cool in the tray for 10 minutes, before removing and popping onto a cooling rack


To make your own oat flour, just process the desired amount of whole oats in a food processor until it resembles a fine flour.
Make sure you grease the donut tin. These donuts are quite light and they will get stuck very easily.
