Gluten-Free Goodies… GF Frosted Chocolate Donuts

This is going to be a quick one!… I thought I had posted these donuts the last time I made them, but alas – I did not.  It’s a great (and pretty healthy) recipe to have handy for easy entertaining for those with gluten sensitivities.  Quite honestly, gluten sensitive or not, they satisfy a chocolate craving for anybody.

So here is the recipe for those who requested it.

GF Chocolate Donuts

Chocolate Frosted Gluten-Free Donuts
 
1 cup       Multi-Grain GF Flour Blend*
1/2 cup    GF Oat Flour
1/2 cup    Almond Flour
1/2 cup    Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
1/4 cup    Ground Flaxseed
2 tsp        Baking Powder
1 tsp        Baking Soda
1/4 rsp     Sea Salt
1 1/2 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
1/2 cup    Pure Maple Syrup
1/3 cup    Grape Seed Oil
1/2 cup    Choco chips (semi-sweet, dark or mini)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mist donut baking pan with cooking spray.  In a large bowl, whisk together all the dry ingredients (Flours through to the salt).  In a medium bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients (Milk through Grape Seed Oil).
Slowly add the wet ingredients to the dry and whisk until combined.  Fold in the chocolate chips.
Carefully fill the donut pan with batter.  Bake 18 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted.  Set aside to cool for 15 minutes.  Remove donuts to a cooling rack to cool to room temperature… then frost if desired.
Chocolate Frosting
(This is a small batch of frosting to drizzle or spread on donuts)
2 tbls    Butter or Coconut Oil  ( I usually use real butter – I figure to donuts are pretty healthy)
1 cup    Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
2 tbls    Almond Milk (or milk of your choice
1/2 tsp  Vanilla Extract
Whip or whisk together.  Add additional milk to loosen to desired consistency (I usually do a teaspoon at time so it doesn’t get too runny).
Drizzle, sprinkle…Enjoy!
