happy friday!!!!!!!!! again, thanks everyone for the congrats on the big news!!! can you tell we are super excited over here?
okay, who likes donuts? c’mon we know you are out there. have we not converted you yet from all our donut love?
we were cleaning up our computers and came across an old folder of this donut that we completely forgot to share with you all.
how could that happen??
so we thought better late than never to share something amazing. plus we tend to have donuts on our mind a lot. we even have whole donut pinterest board.
and have you seen our recipe page for our donuts? see we are baked donut obsessed, in a good way though.
there is something about a baked donut that we just love. maybe it is that they are pretty easy to make. or maybe that they are just so cute.

we left these gluten free vegan persimmon tahini donuts on the savory side. we like to make unique pairings sometimes...you know, for something different for the taste buds.
Twins Question: What is the most unique flavor pairing? Any favorite combos that might not be traditional?
till next time,
