Healthified (baked) chocolate donuts with a chocolate glaze
Okay are you guys ready for some completely over the top chocolate donuts?! :D These babies might be a healthified version, but I promise that you cannot taste that at all, they have such a rich chocolate flavor and the glaze is just to die for! I went all in on the chocolate and topped the chocolate donuts with not only an amazing chocolate glaze, but also a ton of both dark chocolate and milk chocolate – so good!

Ingredients – 8 donuts:
2 1/2 deciliter (about 1 cup) buckwheat flour
1/2 deciliter (about 0.2 cup) cacao powder
1/2 deciliter (about 0.2 cup) coconut sugar
1 deciliter (about 50 grams or 0.4 cup) chopped dark chocolate (I used one with 70% cacao)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla powder
1/2 teaspoon instant coffee
A pinch of sea salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 avocado, mashed
2 tablespoons coconut oil
2 tablespoons skyr or greek yoghurt
1/2 deciliter (equals 0.2 cup) honey
1 deciliter (equals 0.4 cup) almond milk (or whatever kind of milk you prefer)
1 deciliter (about 50 grams or 0.4 cup) chopped dark chocolate (I used one with 70% cacao), melted
2-3 tablespoons almond milk
A donut pan – I used this one!
Start by preheating your oven to 175 c / 350 f.
Add all the dry ingredients to a bowl and stir well. Then add the mashed avocado (you can either just mash it with a form or add it to a foodprocessor/blender if you want it to be completely smooth), egg, coconut oil, skyr/greek yoghurt, honey and almond milk to another bowl and mix well. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the bowl with the wet ingredients while stirring until you have a smooth batter.
Grease the donut pan with a little bit of coconut oil and add the dough, leave a little space in the moulds for the donuts to rise – a couple of millimeters should be enough as we want the donuts to rise above the mould to get that perfectly rounded shape.
Bake them in the oven for about 18 minutes, but make sure to keep an eye on them. When the donuts are done make sure to set them aside to cool a little before removing them from the pan.
While you wait you can make the chocolate glaze by simply whisking the melted dark chocolate and the milk together, start with adding two tablespoons and then add 1-2 more if needed. When the donuts have cooled you can decorate them with the chocolate glaze and maybe even some chopped chocolate like I did, enjoy!
