Chocolate doughnut... muffins? With PB choco frosting

Bet that title got you drooling ehh? Side note, I've been saying ehh lately. I blame Jeanne. Cause she's Canadian and she writes it in her emails... which somehow has translated to me saying it. Maybe I just want to be Canadian or something? John goes nuts every time I let one slip LOL "why are you pretending to be Canadian?!?!" :D

Right... onto the doughnut muffins. I saw this on a blog and NEEDED to go home and make them. Only problem... I don't have a doughnut pan... so I tried making them as muffins, I increased the baking time... but they stuck like MAD to the pan... next time there will be liners. The tops had the perfect texture though, so I can see how making these shallower in a doughnut pan would be AMAZING. Either way, they tasted amazing, and I love her frosting, YUM! (as you can see above my muffin tops pulled off... so I put the frosting sandwich style under the tops, and then put a smear of coolwhip on top for flare.

She mentioned there not being enough batter to make 6... so I upped the nuts a bit and they filled 6 muffin tins to the top.


BAKED CHOCOLATE DOUGHNUTS
recipe by neverhomemaker

What you'll need . . .

1 cup rolled oats, processed into flour
1/2 cup cashews (processed with oats) (she used pecans and only 1/4 cup)
1/4 cup agave (she used maple syrup)
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
pinch salt
1/2 cup skim milk (she used almond milk)
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 egg, (she used Ener-G egg replacer (plus required water) for one egg)

Method . . .

Preheat to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a mini bundt pan (or doughnut pan, if you have one).
Put all ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
Pour into five of the six bundts (I need to rework the recipe to make more -- trust me, it's so good, I'm making more today).
Bake for 12 to 14 minutes, until slightly firm. Let cool in pan and then turn over to pop out.

Frosting:
Just use a fork to mix everything together in a small bowl:
2 tablespoons peanut butter
2 Tbs splenda (she used 1/3 cup powdered sugar)
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
1 to 2 tablespoons almond milk
