Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Chocolate Donuts

on January 26, 2013

This morning I made chocolate donuts from a recipe I found on a blog called Tasty Yummies and they tasted pretty yummy!

Here is the recipe:

Gluten-Free + Dairy-Free Chocolate Donuts
makes approximately 8-10 donuts – this is the pan I use

1/2 cup almond flour
1/2 cup buckwheat flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon of salt
3 large farm fresh brown eggs
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted (you could also use grapeseed oil or melted butter)
1 tablespoon of vanilla
1/2 cup of honey (or other liquid sweetener)

For dipping:
Approximately 1/3 cup of melted dairy-free gluten-free chocolate chips (I like Enjoy Life or Sunspire brands)

Preheat the oven to 350º F. Lightly grease your donut pan with just a bit of coconut oil, vegetable shortening, etc.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the flours, baking soda, cocoa powder and salt, stir until well blended. In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the eggs, coconut oil, vanilla and honey.

Add the wet ingredients to the dry mixture and mix very well by hand or with a mixer. Make sure it is well combined. I find that piping the batter into the pan is easiest. I just fill a gallon-sized freezer bag with the batter and seal it off, then I cut a very small hole at one of the corners and use it like a piping bag, it makes it so easy to fill the donut pan. You could also carefully spoon the mixture into the pan. Fill your donut pan about 3/4 of the way full.

Bake for about 15-18 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Once cooled, dip into melted chocolate, peanut butter, sprinkle with toppings or just eat plain!

Note: If you are using a donut maker rather than a donut pan, follow the directions that come with your machine for cook times.

Here is a picture of how her donuts turned out:

I did have an issue with the donuts sticking to the pan, even though I sprayed a heck of a lot of Canola Oil all over the inside of the pan & used my finger to make sure it spread evenly.

Speaking of cooking sprays…do you know how hard it is to find a cooking spray that does NOT contain soy?? I finally found H-E-B All Natural No-Stick Canola Oil and it is 100% pure Canola Oil.

OK, back to the donuts. Another problem I ran into was that I filled the wells a little too full. This is what my first attempt looked like right out of the oven:Image

They look like muffins! Haha!

Here was my second batch:

Much better!

And the best part of all…

Thank you Tasty Yummies for the recipe!
