Red Velvet Doughnuts - Recipe

This is a very simple and healthy recipe for red velvet doughnuts made with raspberries and beetroot. Satisfy your sweet tooth with good-for-you ingredients!

Fresh beetroot is used for colour and flavour. It is very sweet and adds a lot of nutrients and moisture to desserts. Beetroots are extremely healthy! Loaded with fibre, alkalising minerals, and vitamins A, B and C, they have been shown to have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and detoxification qualities. Also, recent health claims suggest beetroot can help lower blood pressure, boost exercise performance and prevent dementia.

1½ cups almond meal

1 cup cashews

½ cup coconut flour
