Chocolate Donuts with Coconut (Coconut Flour)

1 Feb

Coconut and chocolate…together in harmony…

I like the flavour combination of chocolate and coconut and put them together in the form of a donut.   I had a day of making various donut recipes with coconut flour and this was one of them.  Chocolate and coconut..what’s not to love!

As ever, you need a donut tin.  I could not find one in my local shops so I ordered mine via Amazon and it took about a week to get here.   As well as dipping these donuts into dessicated coconut, I also dipped a couple into ground erythritol as an alternative to icing sugar…tasted nice!

INGREDIENTS

1/2 cup coconut flour

1/4 cup erythritol

1/4 cup cocoa powder

1/4 tspn salt

1/4 tspn baking soda

6 eggs

1/2 cup coconut oil

1/4 cup coconut milk

1 tblspn vanilla extract

TOPPING

2-3 tblspns Agave syrup

3-4 tblspns unsweeted grated coconut

METHOD

  • Preheat the oven to 180C/350F degrees.
  • Mix the coconut flour, ertyhtritol, cocoa powder,  baking soda and salt together.
  • Add the eggs, coconut oil, coconut milk and vanilla extract.   Blend well until the batter is smooth (a hand blender is handy! If not, work those arms!).
  • Fill the donut tin to about 2/3 full with the batter and bake for about 20 minutes until firm.
  • Remove, cool slightly and dip into the Agave syrup, then the coconut.
  • Eat and enjoy!
