Orange Doughnuts, Gluten-free & Guilt-free

I’m reading Wheat Belly right now, and I have to admit, it’s a little hard to eat wheat at the moment.  That’s fine with me, and just gives me one more excuse to challenge myself with gltuen-free takes on lots of recipes.  Today, doughnuts! These doughnuts don’t leave you wanting anything else, or realizing they’re gluten-free.

Orange zest has so much flavour!  If you have a high speed blender, you can actually just section the orange, and put the whole thing in, so you’ve zested and juiced it in seconds.  If not, you can still juice and zest and use the whole entire fruit.

The greek yogurt adds some protein and makes these super moist.  They’re quite dense, but not too heavy feeling.  I made them without baking powder or soda, but I think I’d add some next time.  It was a passover thing.

So delicious!
