    OK so this is tough for me because I love love love love love peanuts and peanut butter… but we’ve been trying to replace it with almond butter after reading numerous articles on Carcinogenic & Pesticide Contaminates in all US peanuts. Any thoughts on this?

    • Maria Emmerich says:

      I do look for organic peanuts when I use them. But almond butter is a good option too. 🙂

  • Laura says:

    Hi Maria, thank you for the recipe it’s awesome! I just made these. all I had was a mini donut pan which ended up making 36 mini donuts can these be frozen?

  • Laura says:

    Maria, can these be frozen?

  • Margie says:

    These were delicious! I’m glad I bought a donut pan though it made it pretty easy. I was surprised how fast they came together. My whole family is happy especially my daughter who we’ve been trying to take off sugar and Grains per the dentist orders. It wasn’t a big deal for me because I’ve been eating like this for a few years now. And I have used so many of your recipes. Thank you for your work. You do a great job!

  • Annie says:

    Darn, no donut pan but maybe mini cupcakes? Wo am I fooling? I just eat them all myself!

  • Kyme says:

    Can I use a different flour instead of peanut flour?

  • Kyme says:

    Is the batter supposed to be liquidy or thick?
