CHOCOLATE DONUTS WITH PEANUT BUTTER GLAZE (gluten free + dairy free!)

Wooooh baby, I took a bite out of one of these and literally gasped. They are SOOOOO GOOOOOOD.

Today I'm celebrating because one year ago I was unceremoniously let go from the job I moved across the country for! If you told me a year ago that I would be celebrating this day, I would not have believed you. It honestly felt like I had hit rock bottom.

Maybe it's just because of how different the world looks today (hello coronavirus, being unemployed again, don't know when it will end, etc.) or because I've had 365 days of growth in between, or maybe a combination of both but I am feeling GOOD today.

Some day I might share more about my experience, but it's still a little painful for me to talk about the details. However, I will always be grateful that this job led me down the path that I'm now on: got me to LA, made me seriously consider a job in food + wellness, and ultimately starting Nutrition School at IIN. :) :) :) Everything happens for a reason, friends.

OKAY, enough reminiscing! Onto the good stuff: these donuts.


I knew I wanted to make a treat today but I didn't know what to make! Then I remembered that I have a donut pan and the rest was history. These donuts are made with simple ingredients that I already had in my pantry, so no extra trip to the store required!


They are gluten-free and dairy-free, and if you don't make the peanut butter glaze, they're also refined sugar-free! But, would highly recommend making the glaze.
DONUTS (makes 12): 
Dry Ingredients1 cup oat flour (I used Bob's Red Mill gluten-free oat flour)⁣
1/4 cup cacao⁣
1.5 tsp baking powder⁣
1/3 cup coconut sugar⁣
sprinkle of salt⁣

Wet Ingredients2 eggs⁣
3/4 cup non-dairy milk (I used oat)⁣
1/3 cup coconut oil (melted/cooled)⁣
2 tsp maple syrup⁣

PEANUT BUTTER GLAZE:
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
splash of non-dairy milk (I used oat)


INSTRUCTIONS:
1. Preheat oven to 350
2. Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl
3. In another bowl, mix together the wet ingredients
4. Add wet ingredients into the dry and mix together until a batter has formed
5. Pour the batter into a greased donut pan (I used coconut oil spray to grease it!).
6. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool slightly, then remove from pan and cool on a wire rack for another 5-ish minutes. 
7. While the donuts are in the oven add glaze ingredients to a mixing bowl and mix with a hand mixer (or kitchen aid for you fancy peeps) until icing/glaze forms⁣. Start with less milk and add as you go to get your desired consistency.
⁣8. Once donuts are done and cooled slightly, ice away and face plant into them 👏🏻 

ENJOYYYYYY 🥳
