In most of my recipes, there is no sugar and if only little, because I believe that sugar is not very healthy for our bodies and minds. This recipe for gluten-free, baked chocolate donuts awakens very special memories, so I would like to share it. Compared to most chocolate donuts, these are not fried but baked, therefore certainly a little healthier. The mixture of sugar glaze and frying fat would probably be an unhealthy feast for our bodies, at least mine.
That’s why I chose the baked version, still amazing taste but a bit healthier. I was so happy when I finally tripped over a donut shaped baking form. Tripped is perhaps a bit exaggerated, but as usual the purchase was not planned, but the form was missing in my collection.
Unfortunately, I can not say no when it comes to “toys” for my kitchen, whether it is a juicer, waffle machine, dehydrator or any kind of dishes. I want to post inspiring pictures that always seem new and exciting, therefore I “need” my kitchen accessories. On the other hand, I find nothing worse than too many things standing around. I like it need and tidy in my kitchen or anywhere in my appartment.
Therefore, I am also incredibly glad that tomorrow evening I can pick up a small cupboard from a friend. It seems to fit exactly into one corner of my kitchen, perfect for all my kitchen utensils. Therefore, I am very glad that Kathrin does not need the closet. More space for my toys. If this does continue I need to plant more space.
Chocolate donuts with glaze always remind me of my time as an au pair in New York. Every now and then my guest father came back from the city on Friday evening with a box Krispy Kreme donuts. Usually they were intended for breakfast the next morning, but unfortunately usually they did not last so long and were immediately inhaled by the two teenager boys or any of us adults. My favorite donuts were made of chocolate with a simple sugar glaze. I admit, Krispy Cream Donuts are a dream come true and the best but these still taste absolutely fantastic. Through the glaze they retain their particularly fluffy and somewhat moist consistency, the perfect breakfast on a weekend, especially with this gray weather.
Baked Chocolate DonutsPrint This
- 3/4 Cup Oat Meal Flour – just grind your gluten free oat meal until you have flour like texture.
- 3 Tbsp. Tapioca Starch
- 1/4 Cup Coconut Flower Sugar
- 1/4 Cup Cocoa Powder
- 1/2 Tsp. Baking Soda
- 1/2 Tsp. Baking Powder
- 1 Pinch Sea Salt
- 1 Vanilla Bean or 1/2 Tsp. vanillia extract
- 1 Egg – Have not tried yet with flax egg, maybe worth a try for a vegan version.
- 1/2 Cup Coconut Yoghurt – or any other kind of yoghurt
- 2 Tbsp. Coconut Oil melted
- 1 Tsp. Guar Gum
- 1 Cup Powdered Sugar
- 7 Tbsp. Almond milk
- 1 Tsp. Vanilla Extract
- First mix all dry ingredients. Preheat the oven to 350° Fahrenheit. Then add all the moist once and mix. Let the dough sit for approx. 10 minutes. The oat meal flour will absorb some liquid.
- Grease the donut form with some coconut oil. Add some dough until the form is half filled. The dough will rise therefore do not put too much in or you will miss the donut hole in the end.
- Bake the donuts for approx. 10 minutes. Flip them on a cooling rack and let them cool.
- Mix the ingridients for the sugar glaze until you have a glaze without any clumps. You could color the glaze with food color or natural once like beetroot juice or do a chocolate glaze.
Perfect breakfast on a grey fall weekend. Best while sitting on the couch, a matcha latte in one hand, donut in the other one and watching Netflix marathon.
