Double Chocolate Donuts

What’s better than a store bought donut? A homemade one! I love baking my own sweets because I can guarantee the ingredients are as fresh as they can be. As you guys may know by now, I have Crohns so I try to stay away from gluten, dairy, soy and a few other things. That can make me very high maintenance, but honestly the way I feel without these things in my life is not something I’m willing to give up. I used to dread going out to eat because I didn’t know if I would come back bloated or sluggish. The pain was becoming too much to handle, so cutting these foods out of my life was an easy choice. I worried that cooking and baking would be hard with these restrictions, but I’ve come to find that it’s actually helped! I think it’s so fun trying out different types of flours and finding new substitutes for the basic ingredients like milk or butter. As a result, I came up with these!

Five Ingredient Double Chocolate Donuts. There is no gluten, dairy, or soy in this recipe and it’s still just as good as any other donut, in my unbiased opinion lol. The texture is almost cake like, so super moist, fluffy, and airy all at the same time. You can use any type of nut butter, but I added my suggestion for this exact recipe. I’ve used just plain almond butter in the past and made vanilla donuts which turn out just as amazing! Either way, they turn out super good! If you have any questions feel free to let me know.

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup Wild Friends chocolate almond butter*
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 4 eggs
Optional:
  • dairy free chocolate chips for inside batter and top
* you can use normal almond butter and about 2 tbs cacao powder, but I highly recommend this almond butter guys!
Recipe:
  1. Mix all ingredients together well
  2. Spray donut tray with a little avocado oil and pour batter in
  3. Bake at 350 for about 10 to 15 minutes (I never time these things I’m sorry guys, but they do bake quickly so keep an eye on them.) Just check them with a toothpick, if they come out clean then they’re ready!
They store well in the fridge for about five days or keep them in the freezer for longer.
