Vegan chocolate donuts that do not require any Oil or margarine? Are not fried? They can’t taste good, can they? Yes, they can and unfortunately they taste almost too good for me again. My husband has already admonished me to please put them somewhere where he can’t see them. Since then, I have a new secret hiding place in our laundry room, at the top of the closet next to the bike helmets. I hope now that he does not read this *laughs*. Really funny, I just realized that I made my last one Donut recipe online in January 2019 as well. But this time it’s even worse (in a good way), because my brother is also bringing Brammibal Donuts from Berlin this weekend. If I look like a donut in the next photo on Instagram look like a donut, please don’t be surprised.
Vegan chocolate donuts with sugar sprinkles
For the production of the Donuts I recommend a Donut mold (Ad), which you can order on the Internet, or buy in well-stocked housewares stores. The advantage with well-coated baking pans is that you can use them does not need to grease . I didn’t do that with my mold either. Simply remove from the oven, let cool briefly, and then carefully scrape out with a silicone scraper. Only a very minimal layer sticks to the donut pan, but it’s really no thicker than a layer of flour. Wash out briefly and move on to the next round.
For our dough today we need one thing above all, cocoa! In the form of melted Chocolate and cocoa powder. Add coconut blossom sugar, maple syrup, plant milk, apple cider vinegar, spelt flour (or my gluten free flour mix ), buckwheat flour, baking powder, baking soda and a pinch of salt.
How healthy is buckwheat actually? Donuts with buckwheat
You may have noticed that lately I always like to use
use. It has a slightly different taste than wheat or spelt flour, however, I now love it more than anything. Buckwheat whole wheat flour is full of valuable and wholesome (what a play on words) ingredients and provides you with quite a bit of power.
Here are the facts:
- 3x as much Lysine than in most other cereals(lysine = protein building material for healthy bones)
- 10 percent Protein content with high biological value (can be easily digested by the body)
- By nature gluten free
- Rich in Silica (for healthy skin, hair and nails)
- Rich in Vitamin E (may protect against free radicals and thus against premature aging and disease)
- Rich in Magnesium, potassium, iron and folic acid
I think these are in any case enough arguments Buckwheat to organize a permanent place in the pantry.
The vegan chocolate donuts are:
- Loose & Light
- Extra chocolaty
- Perfectly sweet
- Gluten and oil-free
Well, are you ready for these round chocolaty sins? I wish you a lot of fun with the Nachbacken and of course about a positive review at the bottom of this page. If you post a picture, use the hashtag #veganevibes.
