Sunday Morning Chocolate Doughnuts

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

This recipe was originally created by: Rawdorable.  She has a very sweet (no pun intended) blog and I encourage you to check it out.  I have added to and changed the preparation directions a tad.  This is so easy to make.  I have named them the Sunday Morning Chocolate Doughnuts, they just  seem like the perfect breakfast food for a lazy Sunday morning.  Chase it down with some fresh Almond Milk and you have a great start for your day.  Growing up it was tradition to find a box of doughnuts on my grandparents kitchen table.  Everyone would gather round as soon as the coffee pot beeped.  With coffee cups cradled in the palms of their hands, they all peered into the pink box that adorned the center of the table.  Bismarks were one of the family favorites, personally I would dive into the maple filled ones.  But, as I am sure you have guessed, those days have long passed.  So here is a healthy version of a doughnut with I think just as much if not more flavor.

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup almonds, finely ground
  • 1 cup pecans, finely ground
  • 1/2 cup coconut flakes, finely ground
  • 1/2 cup oats, finely ground
  • 1/2 cup cacao powder
  • 8 soft pitted dates
  • 1/4 cup agave nectar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt

 

Preparation:

  1. In a food processor, combine almonds, pecans, coconut, oats and cacao.
  2. Add dates, agave, vanilla and sea salt. Process to form a dough.
  3. I used 1/4 cup of batter per doughnut.  Roll into a ball and slightly / gently flatten.  Using an apple corer, make your doughnut hole.
  4. Place the doughnuts on the mesh dehydrator sheet.
  5. Dehydrate at 105 degrees for about 6-8 hours.
  6. Decorate as you desire.  I used Chocolate Ganche Frosting and G-lazy Glaze.

    Oh, these are just glorious! I used to love doughnuts as a child but just can’t eat them any more… I’ve made a half batch just to try and they are superb! This is going on my list of go-to yummies. What’s the best way of storing them (just in case they don’t all get scoffed in one go!)?

    • amie-sue says:

      So happy to hear that you enjoyed them Theresa. :) To store them, I would put them in an airtight container and in the fridge or even the freezer for an extended time. Thank you for sharing your experience with the recipe. I appreciate that . Have a blessed evening, amie sue
