Tasty Kamut Doughnuts

Doughnuts... yummy, sticky and warm. Probably not the most healthy food to snack on... and that is why we don't make them very often. However not to long ago I did make a small batch of doughnuts for our family, inspired by this recipe... just some what healthier. :0)

My Version: Kamut Doughnuts

2 1/4 t yeast
1/4 warm water
3/4 c lukewarm milk
1/4 c sugar
1/2 t salt
1 egg
1/4 cup coconut oil (about)
2 1/2 cups of freshly ground Kamut flour

In a large bowl, dissolve the yeast in your warm water and let rest until foamy. Add one cup of your flour to this mixture, then the rest of the ingredients... finally adding the remaining flour and knead well. If your dough is too wet add a little flour, if it is too dry add a little more liquid - I added a little more coconut oil.

Let rise until doubled in an oiled bowl.

Turn out on to a non stick surface... either slightly oiled or slightly floured, roll dough to about a 1/2 inch and cut doughnuts... I used a mason jar. Cut holes. Place your doughnuts on a cookie sheet lined with waxed paper and let rise, until close to being doubled.

Heat oil and fry up your Kamut doughnuts. Remove them from the oil when they are golden brown, placing them on a cooling rack. When the doughnuts are slightly cooled I brush them with honey butter that I had already warmed.

See. Slightly Healthier.
