Holiday Peppermint Chocolate Donuts

dsc_2090xx

Delightful peppermint raw vegan donuts just in time for the holidays!  I always love sharing my goodies with people so when my husband had a couple friends come over last night they were sure to get some treats.  They all loved them and thoroughly enjoyed their peppermint flavor that brought them into the Christmas Spirit.  Naturally these were approved by non-vegans and certified delicious!  Our one friend was jokingly mad because they were so good and didn’t like the idea of loving something so much that was vegan. Super silly 😉  Anyway, may you all enjoy these are much as we did!
