1 tsp Apple cider vinegar
1 tsp Vanilla extract
150g Oat flour
50g Ground almonds

1 tbsp CherryActive Beetroot Concentrate
1 tbsp Coconut oil, melted

Freeze-dried raspberries, to decorate



  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C and grease a 6-hole donut tin.
  2. Place the banana(s), maple syrup, coconut oil, almond milk, beetroot concentrate, vinegar and vanilla in a blender and whizz up until smooth.
  3. Mix the oat flour, ground almonds, flaxseeds, cinnamon, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda in a large bowl.
  4. Pour in the wet ingredients and mix well to form a pink batter.
  5. Divide this between the donut holes to reach the top and smooth out. Bake for 20 minutes, until risen and firm. Leave to cool then turn out onto a wire rack.
  6. Meanwhile make the frosting: Beat together the ingredients and keep in the fridge until needed.
