  • I used raw, peeled orange sweet potato for this recipe.
  • If you do not have a donut pan, you can also bake these in a muffin tin and increase baking time to 25 minutes.
  • You may substitute maple syrup with another liquid sweetener.
  • I topped these donuts with sprinkles and cacao nibs but you can use whatever you like. Feel free to go crazy with your favorite toppings!
