Celebrate National Doughnut Day With a Fonut

Olive Oil Rosemary Fonut Recipe

Meet the "fonut," the doughnut's sexy, sophisticated cousin.

Today, as the nation pays homage to doughnuts, we’re celebrating National Doughnut Day with something slightly more unique: fonuts!

Fonuts are baked, not fried – but just as delicious as their doughy cousins. These sweet confections are vegan, gluten-free – oh, and unbelievably addictive.

The Rosemary Olive Oil Fonuts (pictured above) come from Fonuts in LA. That “powdered sugar” topping is actually pulverized olive oil. (That’s why it’s a Unique Sweet). Or, for all the lemon lovers out there, give our Lemon Fonuts a try.
