Donuts, glorious donuts…a deliriously delicious treat and oh so satisfying when you need more than just a piece of chocolate to take you through the day! We’ve ditched the fryer and developed a delicious baked version of chocolate donuts that are gluten free and dairy free (but fully delicious). Give ’em a whirl – you won’t be disappointed!
Ingredients & Instructions:
1 large egg 1/4 c. coconut oil (slightly melted, but cool)
1/2 c. almond milk (or other non-dairy) 1 t. vanilla
1/3 c. unsweetened applesauce 1/2 c. sugar
3/4 c. unsweetened cocoa powder 1/2 t. baking soda
2 t. baking powder 1/2 c. white rice flour*
3/4 c. GF oat flour* 1/4 c. millet flour*
1/2 t. salt
*You can sub out the different flours for a gluten free flour blend if you prefer – just add 1 c. and go from there because the xanthan gum will absorb liquid as it thickens.
Glaze: 4 oz Brix Smooth Dark Chocolate (this contains dairy – to stay dairy free swap with our Extra Dark variety). Melt along with 1 T. coconut oil, stir to combine and add a pinch of salt.
Mix wet ingredients in one bowl (ensure that the coconut oil has cooled so it doesn’t cook the egg) and dry ingredients in another bowl. Add dry mix to wet mix in two batches, whisking gently to combine. Spoon batter into non-stick donut pan, filling all the way (for a donut pan this means filling to the center hole marker). Bake 14 – 17 minutes at 375ºF and cool before removing from pan. Dip top of donut into glaze and serve immediately. Optional toppings: Shredded coconut, chopped nuts, sprinkles.
These donuts are best served immediately. Store 1-2 days in an airtight container and then freeze to prevent drying.
