Sorry for my lack of posts lately, life is very busy now and it’s getting harder to keep up with the blog. If you want to see more daily posts from Gastrawnomica you can follow me on Instagram and Facebook! Where I post pretty much everyday.
Also, in other news, my Youtube Channel now has new spanish recipe videos (yaaay) and I’ll be posting the recipe in english soon here.
Now, back to the donuts. These goodies are a little experiment I did a few weeks ago, I was feeling like baking and my family has been complaining because I don’t have time to make them vegan desserts anymore, so I knew it was the perfect opportunity.
I still can’t believe the recipe worked so well, and they literally dissappeared. Literally.
Gastrawnomica’s Vegan Chocolate Donuts (Gluten & Oil Free)
1 cup + 2 full tsp gluten free flour blend
3/4 cup coconut sugar
1 Tbsp coconut butter, soft
3 Tbsp coconut flour + water
1/4 cup cacao powder
1/2 tsp each baking soda & baking powder
1 cup almond milk
Preheat oven at 180ºC.
First mix all dry ingredients in a big bowl and set aside. In another small bowl, mix together coconut flour and add room temperature water, adding as much as needed until you have a thick paste (around 1/2 cup water).
Add coconut butter, milk, and coconut flour mixture to the dry ingredients and start mixing everything by hand until well combined, and it resembles a cake mixture.
Put mixture over silicon donut molds or grease a non-silicon donut mold if you don’t have one. Spoon 2-3 Tbsp of mixture (depending how big your mold is) on each space and bake for 30-45 minutes, until a baking tester comes out clean.
Once chilled, I topped my donuts with coconut butter and Justin’s chocolate butter (which is basically a vegan version of nutella) and added hemp seeds, pieces of brown rice cakes, coconut sugar and shredded coconut on top, but feel free to add anything you love.
These goodies will last around a week if kept on the fridge, though they are so delicious they’ll be gone in just a couple of days!
Let me know what you think, if you like them and how it goes! Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram because I post tons of recipes there that never get to the blog.
Have a lovely week.
