A recipe for protein-rich, vegan, gluten-free donuts in honor of National Donut Day

National Doughnut Day is held on the first Friday in June, succeeding the Doughnut event created by the Salvation Army in Chicago in 1938 to honor those of their members who served doughnuts to soldiers during World War I. These days, it's a fun excuse for many to try different donuts!

In honor of this celebration, we are presenting a HEALTHY DONUT RECIPE (vegan and gluten-free) using Naturiste's Vegan Choco Protein and Organic Chia Seeds.
