I made these doughnuts for our anniversary. I loved them! But, the true test was if my husband was willing to eat them. I’m thrilled to share that he took one bite and said, “They’re good. The chocolate masks the off flavors.” Hah! I’ll take it! : )
1 chia egg (1 Tbsp. freshly ground chia + 5 Tbsp. warm water)
1/4 Cup coconut flour
1/4 Cup cacao powder
1/4 Cup maple syrup (add 1/3 cup if you have a sweet tooth)
1/4 Cup pumpkin puree
1/4 Cup water
1/4 tsp real salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 Cup chocolate chips (optional)
1/2 Cup chocolate chips
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Grease doughnut baking pan with coconut oil. I use my hands and then rub the extra oil into my skin.
3. Mix ground chia with water in mixing bowl until combined.
4. Add remaining ingredients, except chips, to bowl.
5. Mix on low for 15 seconds. Make sure the chia egg is thoroughly mixed into the batter. I mix it in by hand. Then, mix in chips.
6. Place batter in doughnut pan. Cook for 25 minutes. Allow to cool in pan then remove.
7. Once doughnuts are cooled, melt chocolate chips on low heat. Decorate as desired.
Makes 6 doughnuts.
My son could hardly wait for me to take the picture of the doughnuts before he chowed down on his share! He did pause long enough for me to take this picture of him with his doughnut. : )
