Recipe by: Alexandra Dawson, 

1 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 cups almond milk (or nondairy milk of choice)
¾ cups stone ground yellow corn meal
¼ cup all purpose flour
¼ cup whole wheat flour
3 tablespoons coconut sugar
1 teaspoons baking soda
½ teaspoon sea salt
3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
½ cup corn kernels, fresh or frozen

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F, rack in the middle. Lightly grease a donut pan with coconut oil. In a medium bowl, whisk together apple cider vinegar and almond milk until well combined. Set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together cornmeal, flours, baking soda, salt, and coconut sugar until all ingredients are well dispersed. Using a wooden spoon, stir in almond milk mixture and coconut oil until all ingredients are completely incorporated. Gently fold in corn kernels.

Carefully pour batter into lightly greased donut pan (my pan holds 6 donuts at a time). This is easiest done using a smaller spoon to fill in the donut ring shape. Bake for 15 minutes, or until donuts are firm and golden, allowing donuts to cool before removing them from pan. Repeat with remaining batter until all donuts are made. Serve and enjoy!
