Glazed and Confused Chocolate Doughnuts

These doughnuts are vegan and gluten free, and the best part is.... they are baked! So there is none of that unhealthy frying involved... These guilt-free doughnuts are rich and chocolate-y and have a cake-like texture. This makes a small batch of 6 doughnuts, so if you want more, double this recipe! :)




Ingredients:

3/4 cup oat flour

1/3 cup cocoa powder

1 teaspoon instant espresso powder

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

Pinch of salt

2/3 cup oat milk, or non-dairy milk of choice

1/3 cup coconut sugar

3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted

1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar


For the chocolate glaze:

1/2 cup organic powdered sugar

2 tablespoons cocoa powder

2 to 4 tablespoons of water (depends on how long you let it sit before dipping the doughnuts, it thickens as it sits.)


For the plain glaze:

1/2 cup organic powdered sugar

1 to 2 teaspoons water



Method of Preparation:


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 6 cavity doughnut baking pan with non-stick baking spray.


Whisk together the oat flour, cocoa, espresso, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Melt the coconut oil, then add the coconut sugar, oat milk, and apple cider vinegar; whisk to combine.


Whisk the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until no oat flour streaks remain.


Pipe or spoon the batter into the prepared doughnut mold, evenly distributing the batter amongs each cavity. The molds should be almost completely filled to the edge with batter.


Bake until puffed and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 12 to 15 minutes.


Allow to cool in the pan for 5 minutes before flipping them out onto a cooling rack to cool completely.


Dip the tops of the doughnuts in the desired frosting allowing the excess to drip back into the bowl. Flip back over and place the glazed doughnuts back on the cooling rack set over a piece of parchment or wax paper (for easy clean up).


Sprinkle with desired toppings! Sprinkles, cookie crumbs, coconut, chocolate chips you name it!


Enjoy! :)
