We are in the middle of doing our Valentine's Advent right now, so far so fun! The kids are enjoying opening up an envelope every morning and I think I've done a pretty good job of picking just the right things to do/say in each one, hooray for me! (If you want to peak at my Valentine's Advent click here!)
This past Saturday the kids had "Donut"make you happy to know you are LOVED! in the advent and these here just happen to be the donuts I made :-)
These yummy little donuts were a hit with the kids and the husband. They had all things awesome about them.
Baked not fried...Check!
Shaped like a heart...Check!
Gluten Free Coconut Flour Donuts (makes 12 mini donuts)
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup honey
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup dark chocolate
1 Tbsp coconut oil
In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream the butter and honey together, add in vanilla and then one egg at a time until well combined. Slowly add in the coconut flour and baking soda and mix well. Place batter into a large plastic bag and snip off one corner off with a pair of scissors. Squeeze batter into the molds of a greased donut pan. Bake at 325 degrees for 15-17 minutes or until golden.
While donuts are cooling make the icing. Melt the dark chocolate and coconut oil in a small bowl in the microwave for about 1 minute. Stir until chocolate is melted. Dip the tops of each donut into the chocolate. Enjoy!
Eggs, baking soda, vanilla, honey, butter...check, check, check, check, and check!
This stuff is super dense and makes for a very dry end product if you don't load it up with some type of liquid...this is why we need 5 eggs!
Once that batter is mixed up, pour it into a plastic bag and snip off the end to fill your greased donut pan. PS. I use coconut oil spray instead of the Pam type product...works like a charm!
Bake your donuts at 325 degrees for about 15 minutes.
Mmm...yeah these are the bomb diggity. But wait! They are about to get even better..time to make the icing, baby! :-)
Get some good quality dark chocolate, about 1/2 cup will do. Add in 1 Tbsp of coconut oil and microwave for 1 minute. Stir until the chocolate is completely melted and...Voila! Chocolate icing on the healthy down low, booyah!
Thanks for stopping by today!
