Celebrate National Doughnut Day With a Fonut

By: Kevin Bender

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.
