  1. Preheat a donut hole maker. If using a donut pan, preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Add the dry ingredients to a large bowl and mix well. Pour in the coconut milk, maple syrup, and ghee, mix well. Then, add the egg, and mix until well combined.
  3. Scoop the batter into a ziplock bag, seal the top, and snip one of the bottom corners. Pipe the batter into the mold, filling it all the way.
  4. Cook until the donut machine indicator light goes off. For the oven, bake for 15 minutes. Remove the donuts and cool on a wire rack.
  5. To make the Syrup: Add the maple syrup, coconut sugar, water, lemon juice, rosewater, cardamom and saffron (if using) to a saucepan over low-medium heat and cook for 5-8 minutes.
  6. Turn off the heat and then add the donuts to the saucepan and allow them to soak in the syrup for 5-10 minutes.
  7. Garnish with crushed pistachios and serve warm.
