Blueberry & Lemon Donuts with Mint

My favorite donut growing up was the blueberry cake donut from Dunkin’ Donuts! Since then, I’ve had to alter my diet significantly and therefore was determined to come up with my own gluten-free version. This recipe features blueberries paired with sour lemon and fresh mint, which helps moderate the sweetness. Currently, it’s as close to the cake-style donut as I can come up with, but this post will be amended with any additional improvements I discover. Since I use powdered sugar for the frosting, it cannot be considered paleo (see my suggestion below). But if you are going to, this would be the recipe to splurge on!

Lemon Cranberry Scones

In the United States, scones are like sweet, soft pastries with dried fruit or nuts baked inside. This version represents the American scone, with sweetness baked right inside. At the bottom, I’ve provided some other variations.
