10-Ingredient Healthy Chocolate Doughnuts

Hey, lovelies!

I don’t know about you, but I am really enjoying the beginnings of summer. That fresh air, those sunny vibes, the long stretch of hours to get your work done then play outside… Yes, it’s awesome.

And guess what? In just three weeks, I will reveal the reason my partner, Aaron, and I are moving… and all the goodness that comes with that venture. Let’s just say, I’m enjoying summer now but may not in a few weeks, as it will be HOT there.

Anyway… For now, I am keeping extremely busy with work, online schools and preparing to move quite a few states away. In my free time, though, I continue to make healthier versions of delectable recipes many people don’t think they can live without.

…Which is why I created these super tasty 10-ingredient chocolate doughnuts! I usually make vegan recipes on this blog but decided to step out of the norm with this recipe because people in my life don’t mind eating greek yogurt and organic, free-range eggs (my parents raise eggs on their farm and I can assure you they are HAPPY chickens).

Only 10 ingredients, these are doughnuts are healthier than deep-fried variations and are just as fluffy and tasty.

I seriously can’t express how excited I am to “spill the beans” on the next project… but just keep an eye out! I think you will be just as excited, too…

10-Ingredient Healthy Chocolate Doughnuts

Preparation Time: 10 Minutes

Serving Size: 6 Minutes

Ingredients:FullSizeRender 11

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour (all purpose)
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup granulated coconut palm sugar
  • ½ tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 organic egg
  • ¼ cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or any milk)
  • ¼ cup plain Greek yogurt (can also use vanilla)
  • 2 Tbsp. coconut oil, melted
  • ½ tsp. vanilla extract
For the glaze:
  • ¾ cup powdered sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
OR…
  • ¾ cup vanilla protein powder
  • 2 Tbsp. unsweetened vanilla almond milk

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375ºF and lightly grease a standard donut pan.
  2. For the donuts: In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, coconut palm sugar, baking powder, and baking soda. Stir until well combined and set aside. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, yogurt, coconut oil, and vanilla. Mix well before adding to flour mixture and stir gently until just combined.
  3. Use a piping bag or ziplock bag with one corner cut off to pipe the batter into your prepared pan, filling each one about ⅔ full. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until donuts spring back when touched. Allow to cool before applying the glaze.
  4. For the glaze: Combine sugar, milk, and vanilla in a medium sized mixing bowl, stirring until smooth. Feel free to add more sugar (to thicken) or milk (to thin) to achieve desired consistency.
  5. Place a wire rack on a sheet of parchment paper or baking sheet. Dip each donut into the glaze, using a fork to turn it over so that both sides are well coated. Remove from bowl and place on wire rack to set. Repeat until all donuts are coated.
