Ingredients

Donuts

  • 2 cup gluten free all-purpose flour I use this brand for almost all of my GF baking
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cacao or cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½   cup coconut sugar packed
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup or honey
  • ½ c coconut oil melted
  • 1 cup milk your choice, I use coconut or almond, room temp
  • 2 large egg room temp
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon peppermint extract

Icing

  • ¾ c chocolate chips I use these
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2-3 tsp milk any kind will do
  • ½ teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350ºF. Grease donut pan and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, and baking soda.
  • In a heavy duty mixer, cream together the coconut oil and sugar.
  • Add milk, eggs, vanilla and peppermint extracts until thoroughly combined.
  • Slowly add dry ingredients on low and mix until well combined, scraping down sides if needed.  
  • Using a piping bag or a ziploc with the corner cut off, fill the doughnut pan.
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes.
  • Allow the donuts to rest for 5 minutes before removing them from the pan and onto a wire rack. Let cool completely before icing.
  • Icing
  • When ready to ice donuts, add chocolate chips and oil to a glass bowl that is positioned over a small saucepan that is filled about halfway with water. Warm chocolate over medium heat stirring occasionally.
  • Whisk together powdered sugar, peppermint extract and 2 tsp of milk. Once the chocolate is smooth, add your sugar mixer and whisk together.
  • If for someone reason your mixture isn’t looking smooth and pourable, add just a bit more milk. You're looking for the consistency of glue—thick but still pourable.
  • Dip each doughnut into the glaze and set to dry on the wire rack. Continue with the rest of the doughnuts.
  • If not serving immediately, store donuts in an airtight container and ice just before serving. Best served within two days of baking.
