Toasted Coconut Mayocoba Bean Donuts

Recipe by info@coloradodrybeans.orgCourse: BreakfastDifficulty: Easy

There’s just something about Mayocoba beans. If you’ve cooked with them before, you know exactly what I’m talking about: creamy, full of flavor and so versatile. And it’s those very beans that make this donut simply irresistible. The beans act like sour cream in this recipe – giving the donuts that undeniable creamy texture that pairs so well with the toasty, crunchy coconut on top. – Colleen
