PB&J Paleo Baked Doughnuts, GF, DF, SF

These little beauties are surprisingly light and fluffy!  I had some skinless peanuts in the freezer that I wanted to try grinding into flour and baking something paleo.  I've never used peanuts, not due to allergies, I just didn't think I would like the flavor in baked goods.  I expected it to be stronger, like peanut butter.  Actually, they turned out really yummy. The peanut flavor is mild, and topping them with jam is so good!
I was really pleased with how much easier peanuts are to grind than almonds, and they cost a little less.  I'm sure you can substitute whatever nut you prefer if you have sensitivities to peanuts.  Or maybe a combination of ground nuts and seeds would be good?  You might also like to try my Baked Chocolate Doughnuts if you want something a little more decadent  :)
