Preheat oven to 350°F.

In a large bowl, combine flax seed and apple cider; let sit for 10 minutes to thicken slightly.

Bake donuts for 20–25 minutes until golden brown. Let cool completely before dipping into maple glaze.

To prepare glaze, ensure your blender is thoroughly dry. Blend maple sugar on high speed until sugar is powdered. Pour into a bowl and add 2 tsp or up to 1tbsp coconut milk to reach desired glaze consistency. Dip tops of donuts, decorate as desired and let set.

Will keep for up to three days lightly covered.
