Oatnuts - The HEALTHIEST Donut in the WORLD!

I'm sure everyone is familiar with the phrase "You can't have your cake and eat it, too!"  These little circles of heaven defy that logic.  I promise these are the best tasting donuts you'll ever have!  They taste sinfully delicious.  In all my years of Healthy Vegan hacking you could always 'taste the healthy' on a baked good.  I came to acquire a taste for the healthy, these make you feel like you are being bad.  

Of course, these are flour based products, which equates to some processing.  For those of us who are McDougall over achievers or just want to celebrate some Maximum Weight-Loss goals with a great treat that won't reverse your course, but certainly tastes like it does, these are perfection!
