Directions for Carrot-Sweet Potato Base Blend
Place a steamer basket into a large pot, pour in a few inches of tap water (make sure the water is below the bottom of the basket), and set it over high heat. Add the sweet potatoes and carrots and steam, covered, for 15 to 20 minutes, until fork-tender. Blend the veggies with 2 to 3 tablespoons of filtered water until smooth, adding more water as necessary.
Directions for Donuts
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Generously mist a mini donut or mini muffin tin with cooking spray. In a large bowl, combine the flour, cinnamon, salt, and baking powder. In a medium bowl, whisk together the oil, maple syrup, egg, yogurt, the blend, and the vanilla. Stir the dry mixture into the wet ingredients until just combined. Spoon the batter into the baking tin, filling each individual well about three-quarters full. Bake for 16 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean. To dust the tops: Mix the sugar (if using), cinnamon, and salt in a small bowl. Allow the donuts to cool or dive in while they’re warm. Lightly mist the tops of the donuts with cooking spray and dust with the sugar mixture.
