CHOCOLATE MINI DONUTS

Makes: 18 (22g) 

Ingredients
For the donuts
4 tbsp flour of choice
4 tbsp hazelnut meal
1 tbsp coconut sugar
¼ cup water
2 tbsp coconut milk (lite)
2 sachets Whey Hot Mocha or Chocolate (60g)
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla essence
70g dark organic chocolate, melted
1 tbsp coconut oil, melted
1 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp cocoa powder 

For the glazes

Chai

  •          2 (30g) sachets Vanilla Whey Hot Chai
  •          4 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  •          2 tbsp water

Chocolate

  •          100g dark chocolate, melted
  •          2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  •          2 sachets (30g) Whey Hot Chocolate

Peanut Butter

  •          5 tbsp TheNuttyWhey Original or Caramel
  •          2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  •          2 tbsp water

Toppings

  •          Cacao nibs, peanut pieces, shredded coconut 

Directions

For the donuts

  1.       Set your oven to 180 degrees.
  2.       Combine all dry ingredients in one bowl.
  3.       Combine all wet ingredients in another bowl.
  4.       Combine the two and mix well. The mix should resemble a cake batter and run off the spoon. You can add another egg yolk to help with this.
  5.       Spoon a tablespoon of mix into mini cupcake silicon cases, or if you have donut baking trays, use them.
  6.       Bake for 8-10 minutes until the centre is set. Remove from the oven and allow to cool before removing from cases and cooling fully on a wire rack. Continue with remaining mix.
  7.       To make into donuts, use a ‘corer’ to remove the centre or carefully cut with a knife.
  8.       Store in an airtight container until ready to glaze.

For the glazes

  1.       Combine each mix in bowls. The mixes should be reasonably runny so that they coat the back of a spoon. If too runny, they will thicken as they begin to set, so place in the fridge for 5-minute intervals to speed this up. If too thick, add additional liquid.
  2.   Dip each donut into your glaze of choice topside first. Allow to stop dripping before placing on to a wire rack to begin setting. Sprinkle with your choice of toppings.
