Double Chocolate Donuts - Gluten & Grain free


So after I made these delicious Lemon Poppyseed donuts, I decided that I had to see if I could make chocolate donuts - and these turned out great!!

Made with almond flour and tiger nut flour - so they are totally gluten & grain free. In addition to the raw cacao which gives it a deep chocolate taste, there is just enough maple syrup and an organic stevia blend called Pyure - so each donut only has about 3 teaspoons of sugar (from the maple syrup) - less than half of a typical frosted cake donut.

Ready to give these babies a go? You will need a donut pan like this one for this recipe. If you do not have one, you could try using a muffin tin (I have not actually tried it).

Preset your oven temperature to 350 degrees.

Donut Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of blanched almond flour (I like this brand, because it is organic, but you can also find blanched almond flour at Trader Joes and Costco).

  • 1/3 cup of tiger nut flour (Tiger nuts are small tubers. If you don't have tiger nut flour, you could substitute a gluten free flour blend, or just use 1/3 cup more of almond flour). If you do buy tiger nut flour - consider making these amazing cookie dough balls!!

  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt (I like Real Salt Brand)

  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda

  • 3 Tablespoons raw cacao powder (you could use less if you want it lighter chocolate)

  • 2 teaspoons Pyure sweetener (or you could use a monkfruit sweetener if preferred)*

  • 2 organic eggs

  • 1/4 cup maple syrup

  • 3 Tablespoons of coconut milk (or another alternative milk)

  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

  • 1/4 cup virgin coconut oil - (melted - if not already)

Frosting Ingredients:

*Note: these donuts are not super sweet like typical donuts - because I don't like super sweet foods!! (The longer you are off of sweets - the less you will like them too). But if you like things really sweet, consider adding in a little more of the Pyure sweetener.
