Vanilla Buckwheat Multi-Coloured Donuts

What can I say? We really love donuts. When we were in NYC last week, we had the opportunity to eat several vegan donuts throughout our trip which made us crave them when we came back home. I decided to make a different recipe for my donuts utilizing light buckwheat flour, which is much easier on the digestive system than brown rice flour.
