Glazed Devil’s Food Chocolate Cake Donuts

Glazed Devil's Food Chocolate Cake Donuts


Yields: 8 doughnuts

  • For the donuts:
  • 5 large medjool dates, pitted
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tbsp sunflower seed butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 2 tbsp coconut crystals
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 cup Enjoy Life chocolate chips (or dark chocolate chips), melted
  • For the glaze:
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil, softened (not melted!)
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 tbsp sunflower seed butter

Preheat oven to 350.

Grease donut pan with coconut oil (I used a large donut pan, but a mini or donut hole maker should work)

Begin by placing dates and 1/2 tbsp water in the microwave to soften for 30 seconds.

Remove from microwave, add other 1/2 tbsp water and mash to create a paste (should end up with about 1/4 cup of paste).

Combine date paste with the rest of the donut ingredients in a food processor until a smooth batter forms and all are well incorporated.

Spoon batter into donut pan, filling about 3/4 of each hole.

Bake for 12 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean in the center.

While donuts are baking, prepare your glaze by whisking all ingredients together in a small bowl until the mixture is smooth.

When done, remove donuts from oven and allow to cool in pan for 5 minutes, then remove and cool on wire rack completely.

Once completely cool, dip the top of each donut into the glaze.

    Congrats on finishing college! WOO HOO!!

    Enjoy Nashville. The only time we ever stopped was at The Cupcake Collection and didn’t have the best experience so I’m looking to rectify that. I’m looking forward to your recommendations!

    These donuts look heavenly! YUM!

    Get a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel! They are the best…big enough to play with but small enough and enough of a lap dog that they will cuddle anyone anytime.
