Great for those hot summer days when you don’t want to turn on the oven and make the kitchen even hotter!!
These no bake donuts are a great combo of rich, dark cacao plus coconut and dates for natural sweetness so they’re not loaded with refined sugars.
Free from donut goodness!
This recipe is also easy to adapt i.e. use gluten free oats for coeliac and a dark choc that’s dairy free etc plus it’s free from refined sugars and I added a superfood blend by VeganTek which has lots of fantastic ingredients in it including ones good for digestion and probiotics which are even more effective because the mix doesn’t need to be heated.
You can even use one after a workout as a refueling treat or a way to satisfy your chocolatey cravings in a more nutritious way!
Recipe (makes 5)
-40g veganTek superfood choc blend* (use DONTFRIG for discount on site)
-16g cacao powder
-80g dates, soaked in warm water beforehand (can sub dried apricots)
-1/4 cup (60ml) of water
-5g melted coconut oil
Topping: approx 45g of dark chocolate of choice
*note: if you sub out the blend then you’ll need to add 1 Tbsp extra sweetness and about 2 Tbsp ground almonds to end up with the same amount of mixture
Simply blend the dry ingredients together first into a course flour like texture, then add in the wet ingredients (dates, water oil) until the mix is combined, it should start to roll into a ball/stick together. Press the mix into a donut mold, I prefer silicon ones, then place into the fridge for around 20mins to firm up. Next melt your chocolate of choice and spread some on top of each donut, you can add more sprinkles on top if desired. Store in a cool place.
