*For donuts*

1/4 cup                         Oat flour (millet, brown rice or sorghum could be subbed)

1/4 cup                         Buckwheat flour (millet, brown rice, or sorghum could be subbed)

1/4 cup                         Flax meal

1 tbsp                           Coconut flour (or could use 2 more Tbsp of oat or buckwheat flour)

3-4 tbsp                        Cacao or cocoa powder

2 tsp                              Baking powder

1/4 tsp                          Salt

1/3 cup                         Coconut palm sugar or sucanat

1/4 cup                         Earth balance, or refined coconut oil (no coconut taste), melted (room temp)

1 1/2 tsp                       Pure vanilla extract

1/2 cup                         Red wine

1/4 cup                         Non-dairy milk (room temperature)


*For chocolate glaze*

1/2 cup                        Dairy-free dark chocolate bar, chopped or chocolate chips (I used Endangered Species 72% bar)

2 tsp                             Refined coconut oil (no taste) or all-vegetable shortening


*Optional toppings*

chocolate shavings or cacao nibs

2 tbsp                        Fruit-sweetened strawberry or raspberry preserves (mixed with 1/2 Tbsp powdered sucanat and slightly thinned with 1 tsp of red wine, only add this prior to serving)



1. Preheat oven to 350F. Grease donut pan and set aside.


2. Add all dry ingredients (flours through sugar) into a medium mixing and stir to combine. Add wet ingredients (earth balance/oil through wine) bowl and stir together gently.


3. Spoon batter into prepared donut pan and smooth with spatula or press down gently. Bake donuts at 350 F for about 15-16 minutes (should be moist but also cooked through).


4. Let cool in pan for at least 5 minutes before gently removing.


5. To prepare glaze, add chocolate and oil/shortening in a double broiler, stir often until chocolate is melted. Carefully dip tops of donuts into the melted chocolate, sprinkle/drizzle with other toppings if desired and enjoy!
