- FOR THE CHOCOLATE DONUTS
½ cup coconut flour
½ cup Swerve confectioners’-style sweetener or equivalent amount of liquid or powdered sweetener
⅓ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp ground cinnamon
⅛ tsp fine sea salt
5 large eggs
½ cup unsweetened almond milk (or hemp milk if nut- free)
½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter (or coconut oil if dairy- free), softened 1 tsp vanilla extract
- FOR THE CHOCOLATE GLAZE
¾ cup full-fat coconut milk (or heavy cream if not dairy-sensitive)
⅓ cup Swerve confectioners’-stylesweetener or equivalent amount of liquid or powdered sweetener
57g (2oz) unsweetened chocolate, finely chopped
Seeds scraped from 1 vanilla bean (about 8 inches long), or 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F. Grease a 6-cavity donut pan.
- To make the donuts, combine all of the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl and stir well. Combine the wet ingredients in a mixing bowl with a hand mixer until smooth.
- Fill two-thirds of the way up each well of the donut pan with batter. Bake for 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into a donut comes out clean. Allow the donuts to cool in the pan before glazing.
- In a double boiler or a heat-safe bowl set over a pan of simmering water, combine the coconut milk, sweetener, and chopped chocolate to make the glaze. Stirring constantly, heat on low until the chocolate melts. Take the pan off the heat. Stir in the vanilla extract until well combined. Using a fork, dip the cooled donuts in the glaze.
- Refrigerate leftovers in an airtight container for up to 3 days
- RECIPE NOTES:
If you don’t have a donut pan, you can make these in a muffin
pan instead. Simply grease 6 wells of a standard-size muffin
pan and proceed as directed above.
