Chocolate Chocolate Donuts {They’s Vegan, Yo}

Who posts a new recipe on Friday at 3:44 p.m.? Well, the crazy girl who’s still unpacking her life, that’s who. Thanks so much for your patience this week. To reward you for sticking by me through thick and thin, being patient on a week with a pathetic amount of posts (and even more pathetic posts), I think it’s high time we celebrate two of the deadly sins.

Greed and lust.

Vegan donut porn, anyone?

Sit back, relax, and oogle…

Choc.o.late.

Ve.gan.

Do.nut.

Because you deserve it.

Because I love you.

Because I approve of lust. When it’s lusting after vegan chocolate donuts.

And because greed feels sooo good…when you want something sooo right.

This ones for you, darlin.

Vegan Chocolate-Chocolate Donuts

Ingredients:

For the Donuts:
1 cup garbanzo beans
1/2 cup almond milk
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
2 tablespoons vanilla
1 tsp white vinegar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 tablespoon Earth Balance 'butter', melted
1 cup grain-sweetened vegan chocolate chips, melted
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour

For the Glaze:
1/2 cup grain-sweetened vegan chocolate chips, melted
2 tablespoons Earth Balanc, melted
1 tablespoon almond milk
1/2 tablespoon vanilla
1 cup organic powdered sugar

Directions:

In a blender, combine garbanzo beans, almond milk, baking powder, vanilla, white vinegar, salt, sugar, and melted butter. Blend until pureed. Transfer to a large bowl and blend with the melted chocolate chips and flour. Transfer to a large zip-top bag and allow the dough to sit for about 5-10 minutes before snipping the corner of the bag, and piping into donut pans that have been generously sprayed with nonstick baking spray.

Bake in an oven preheated to 350 degrees for 9-11 minutes, or just until the donuts set. Remove and cool for 3-5 minutes before turning your donuts onto a cooling rack. Frost immediately with frosting.

While the donuts are cooking, mix together the chocolate chips, melted Earth Balance butter, almond milk, vanilla, and powdered sugar. Mix just until smooth. Add more almond milk if needed to make the consistency spreadable (but not overly runny). Use a spoon to drizzle on top of warm donuts.

    I appreciate so much all of your baking recipes. We’re trying to eat more healthfully, so I’m cooking primarily vegetarian and often vegan meals. The baking part is still new to me. You have some wonderfully sinful ideas :-)

  12. Great. Now I’m seriously craving chocolate donuts!

    Just an aside, you might want to specify the sprinkles you use. I like Let’s Do Organic, as they use normal things to color their sprinkles (like spinach and tumeric). Some sprinkles use non vegan creepy ingredients like crushed bugs (cochineal, carmine red or Natural Red 4). Yikes!

    I made these tonight (I tagged you in my instagram) and used stevia in place of the sugar. The “glaze” was actually moldable so I just pressed it on the top and it started to melt. My kids are gonna FLIP when they see these for breakfast! Thank you!

  16. […] 19. Chocolate Cake DonutsBetcha can’t guess the base for these chocolate delights! Garbanzo beans (yes, like what hummus is made of) make up the protein- and fiber- rich foundation for these donuts. Whole-wheat flour makes ‘em even healthier. But don’t worry, you still get a little decadence from melted chocolate chips! (Oh yeah, and the chocolate-almond milk glaze.) […]
