#FruitSoHard - Baked Chocolate Donuts

Wednesday, April 19, 2017

For the first time in a long time, I made something without bananas!! But there is still fruit in these. Dates to the rescue! They're amazing at sweetening food without using processed sugar. Basically, they're nature's candy. Ooey and gooey, they're like caramel. And I love them. So much. Especially when they're baked with other things to make donuts! This is a great base to work with, and they can be customized so easily. I can't wait to try more stuff with them. But, for now, I shall eat. Enjoy!

Baked Chocolate Donuts



Ingredients:
  • 3/4 cup non-dairy milk
  • 13 pitted medjool dates
  • 1 1/4 cup oat flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp tapioca starch
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 350F. 
  2. Blend milk and dates into a smooth paste.
  3. In a bowl, add oat flour, baking soda, baking powder, tapioca starch, and cocoa powder. Stir well.
  4. Add milk/date mixture, maple syrup, lemon juice, and vanilla extract. Stir to combine. 
  5. Fill donut pan (10-12 for mini, 6 for full size) with batter. Bake for 10 minutes for minis and 18-20 minutes for full-size donuts. 
They're delicious on their own, but I'm looking forward to frosting them with this! And I might add some PB/powdered PB next time! Or you can put powdered sugar on them or even add chocolate chips. Whatever you want to do! They're super versatile, and I can't wait to experiment. Nommm. :)
