These little guys are such an amazing treat! They are super easy to make and they are guaranteed to satisfy any sugar cravings. They are completely gluten free and since I have used coconut flour they can be made completely nut free by using sunflower butter instead of almond butter. I love dipping them in nougat chocolate but feel free any chocolate you like.
1 ½ cup of coconut flour
1 cup of pitted dates – I would recommend to use medjol but if you can’t find them you can use normal dates just make sure you soak them beforehand for at least ½ hour
3 tablespoons of One Earth Chocolate Dream
1 tablespoon of chia seeds
1 tablespoons of melted coconut oil
1 tablespoon of almond butter
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
For the coating:
About 100gr of chocolate of your choice – I have used a vegan nougat chocolate
A generous handful of cacao nibs to sprinkle on top – optional but it adds a nice crunch
This recipe couldn’t be simpler. Just place all the ingredients for the donuts into a food processor and blitz until you have a sticky dough when pressed between your fingers. If you find the mixture a bit dry juts add an extra tablespoon of maple syrup or honey.
Press the mixture into donuts silicone mould (I have used a mini donuts one) about 1 tablespoon for each mini donut. Place it in the freezer to set for about ½ hour until completely firm. To melt the chocolate simply fill up a small pan with some water, bring it to boil. Place a ceramic or glass bowl on top and let the chocolate melt gently on a low heat.
Dip the donuts into the melted chocolate and sprinkle with the cacao nibs. Place them back in the fridge/freezer for another ½ hour to set. Enjoy!
Store any leftovers into an airtight container in the freezer for few weeks.
