  1. Whisk the flour, flaxseed, baking powder, nutmeg, and cinnamon together in a bowl until evenly blended; set aside. Beat the eggs and sugar together in a separate bowl; whisk the buttermilk and 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil into the egg mixture. Stir the flour mixture into the egg mixture until no lumps of flour remain and the dough is firm enough to handle. Cover the bowl and refrigerate at least 10 minutes.
  2. Roll the dough to 1/2-inch thickness on a generously-floured surface. Use a floured donut cutter to cut donut shapes out of the dough. Let the donuts stand for 5 to 10 minutes as the oil heats.
  3. Heat the frying oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 360 degrees F (180 degrees C).
  4. Fry the donuts in the hot oil in batches until golden brown on both sides, about 2 minutes per side. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate before serving.

PS. If you dont have flaxseed, just substitute it with a cup of flour.

These are delicious! I would never think of giving my two year old a donut unless there was something nutritious in them (he is terribly fussy and likes sweets). He is always asking for another ...

I replaced the flaxseed with more flour, and added a hint of vanilla. they were delicious!

These did not turn out at all. I followed the recipe exactly. They were tasteless and tough.

The onion was too intense for me. I would leave it out or try something else. If it wasn't for that I'd give it a higher rating.

I made these donuts yesterday and my family loved them! The flax definitely lent to a great texture. The dough was a bit sticky, so I found myself adding about half a cup of additional flour (...

Very yummy! I had to add extra flour to get a consistency that could be rolled and cut. Making sure the oil is at the right temp is also very important. Really enjoyed this breakfast treat.
