Dairy-free, gluten-free chocolate cake donuts! Guys, these taste so much like the chocolate glazed donuts from Dunkin Donuts, but made with better-for-you ingredients!
They’re made with almond flour, coconut sugar, olive oil, plus a few other pantry basics. They’re the perfect little snack to pair with your coffee.
I haven’t tested many donut recipes in the past because I never owned a donut pan. I’m all about keeping my kitchen gadgets practical, but I couldn’t resist when I saw this donut pan sitting on the shelf at target.
I blame Target, they really know how to get you.
My favorite donut used to be those chocolate glazed ones from Dunkin. They were cake-like, and had a simple glaze around them. These chocolate-cake donuts taste so similar, and can be topped with any glaze you like!
Here’s what you’ll need for these Chocolate Donuts:
- almond flour– the finer, the better
- coconut sugar
- oil, I’ve used both olive and melted coconut oil in these
- unsweetened cocoa powder
- vanilla extract
- baking soda
- toppings: melted dark chocolate with sprinkles, or a simple sugar icing
You won’t believe how simple these are. They come together in just about 30 minutes.
Now that I own a donut pan, get ready for more donut content in the next few months. I hope you guys try this recipe!
