    cup water

  • 3/4

    cup sugar

  • 1/2

    cup oil

  • 2

    eggs (beaten)

  • 1/4

    cup flour

  • 3/4

    teaspoon cinnamon

  • 1/2

    teaspoon baking soda

  • 1

    teaspoon vanilla

  • 1/4

    teaspoon salt

    block of cream cheese

Directions

Combine 1 1/2 cups grated carrot, 1 1/2 cups ground whole oats/oatmeal, and 1/4 cup water in a microwavable bowl. We microwaved them for 1 minute, then stirred, then 2 minutes, then stirred, then 1 more minute. Stir well. Make sure the carrots are cooked enough for you. They won’t cook long in the doughnut machine. When the carrots are soft enough for you, add 3/4 cup sugar, 1/2 cup oil, 2 eggs (beaten), 1/4 cup flour, 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and a dash of nutmeg. Stir well. Pipe into the doughnut maker. Don’t try to spoon it in – too messy! Use a zip-lock bag with a corner cut off if you don’t have a fancier piping tool. Bake doughnuts for 6 minutes and remove to wire rack to cool. To make the glaze, 1/2 block of cream cheese in the microwave. Stir in 1 cup powdered sugar. If the glaze is too stiff, then add a couple of drops of milk and stir well. When cool or before if you want gooey glaze, glaze the doughnuts.
