Chocolate Doughnuts with an Orange, Cacao,Date Icing (Vegan, Gluten free )

Slowly I’m becoming a baker. Aquafaba helps so much with my baking experiments. This batter can be doughnuts or cupcakes and oh man is it tasty!

The icing was so good too with a hint of orange added to the taste. Now I just need some volunteers to try my food or please leave a comment if you made one of my recipes.

These are super easy to make with minimal ingredients. Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I did!

Recipe for doughnuts:

1 cup gluten free oat flour

1/2 cup almond flour

4 tbsp aquafaba ( brine from can of chickpeas)

1 tsp baking powder

1/4 cup coconut sugar

1/4 tsp vanilla extract

1/3 cup almond milk

Pinch of sea salt

Recipe for frosting:

4 medjool dates

2 to 3 tbsp orange juice

1 tbsp cacao powder

Water to blend


Preheat oven to 300 degrees. In a mixing add in dry ingredients for doughnuts and mix to combine. Then add in wet ingredients and mix well to combine. Grease a doughnut pan and add in batter. Bake for 12 minutes.

While doughnuts are baking make the frosting. In high speed blender add in all the ingredients and blend to combine add in enough water to make a creamy frosting.

Once doughnuts are cooked carefully take out of the tray to cool. Once cooled ice.
