To make 
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Lightly grease donut pan. To make ‘flax egg’ place flax meal and water into a small bowl and allow to sit for 10 mins.
In a large mixing bowl, sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, nutmeg, and salt.

Add almond milk, flax egg, vanilla and coconut oil. Stir until just combined.

Fill each doughnut cup 1/3 full and tap pan on counter to evenly spread batter.

Bake 5-6 minutes until the top of the doughnuts spring back when touched. Cool in pan for approx. 4 minutes. Remove and place on cooling rack.

Finish with your favourite toppings. Makes about 30 mini doughnuts.
