    With the coconut – are you processing until it’s coconut ‘butter’ consistency? If yes, what would be the equivalent amount of coconut butter to sub? These look great! Thanks.

    • Hi!

      Good question, but no, not processing it into a coconut butter, just processing the dried coconut flakes for 30 seconds to 1 minute, to turn them into a finer crumble. I really think the donuts remain more cake-like using this lightly processed coconut as compared to using a dense coconut butter. But I am sure you can play around it with, and it will likely taste delicious how ever you choose to prepare them!!
