Chocolate Donuts

I guess I couldn’t show these babies off on social media and not expect to post the recipe too. It’s kind of a Saturday morning tradition in our house for the XY’s to buy donuts from the donut shop down the street. I’m not a donut fan, but for some reason I had to know if homemade donuts were as good as the ones from the store. Of course the XY’s didn’t think a gluten-free, dairy-free, organic chocolate donut could be done. To that, I say “don’t make me throw sh&t down!”

I took the original recipe from and modified it so it would not only be gluten-free, but dairy-free, with no refined sugar. They turned out every bit as amazing as they look! Of course, you have to have a donut pan, which is a small splurge, but way worth it considering you are so gonna make these again!

For the donuts:
1 cup gluten-free flour
1/2 cup organic cane sugar
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp fine sea salt
2 tsp white vinegar
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 egg
1/2 cup almond milk
1 tsp vanilla extract

For the chocolate glaze:
1/2 cup dairy- free chocolate chips (Enjoy Life)
2 tbsp coconut butter spread (Spectrum)
2 tsp organic blue agave sweetener
2 tbsp water

Preheat oven to 350 and spray donut pan with coconut oil spray. Combine the almond milk and vinegar and set aside. In a high-speed blender or food processor, add the dry ingredients. In a smaller bowl, whisk the egg with the vanilla and oil and combine with the almond milk.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and blend until smooth. Spoon chocolate mixture into the donut pan and bake 9 minutes or until tops spring back.

Cool donuts on a wire rack.

Heat the coconut butter, and agave sweetener on low, adding the chocolate chips. Gradually, add in water and keep on very low heat.

Transfer chocolate mixture to a shallow dish, continuing to stir. Dip the tops of cooled into the chocolate glaze and top with additional toppings (sprinkles, nuts, coconut) if desired.
