Peanut Butter Mocha Chip Donuts, baked to perfection and sweetened with pure maple syrup, one of my favorite ingredients to use to sweeten my recipes with!

Peanut Butter Mocha Chip Baked Donuts
 What drew me into this particular recipe?  Everything.  King Arthur White Whole Wheat Flour, maple syrup, applesauce, no eggs and the fact that they are baked.  Because my family produces maple syrup, I always have some on hand.  So, anytime I see a recipe that includes it, I give it my full attention!  The applesauce I used in this recipe was homemade applesauce that my Dad and Mom made from apples they grow on their property.

I used Trader Joe’s Chunk Peanut Butter, just something about that particular brand of peanut butter that I love.  Another great plus to this recipe is the fact that on the second day they are NOT SOGGY.  That is a big plus for us because with just Grumpy and me eating these, we are not going to eat the whole batch in one day.  Well, we probably could, but we wouldn’t!

A perfect breakfast of these donuts, almond milk, and a banana!
These gems do not need any glazing.  Oh, you could certainly put some on, but they don’t need it.  I love how they are naturally sweet and went great with my almond milk, but they were fabulous with my cup of coffee!  I’m such a coffee fan that I immediately think of using it if I have any leftover in my pot after my first morning cup.  While mixing these together, I was basically following the recipe, grabbed the almond milk out of my fridge then when I turned around my eye caught the coffee pot with a little left at the bottom.  I immediately knew I would sub some of the milk with coffee.  If you don’t drink coffee, no biggie, just use milk as the original recipe is written.
Note:  Melissa heats her peanut butter up on the stove with the syrup.  I did not need to do that.  The peanut butter I use from Trader Joe’s is not a solid, hard to stir peanut butter, so I just whisked all my wet ingredients together.
