I like to use silicon doughnut moulds as they’re easy to get the doughnuts out of and really quick to clean!
Now onto the really fun part, adding the vegan homemade chocolate sauce!

All you need to do is decide which topping you want to go for. The choices are endless!
I persoanlly love crushed pistachios for texture and colour or desiccated coconut.

5 Ingredient Gluten Free & Vegan Doughnuts
- 200 g gluten free self raising flour (I use doves farm)
- 120 ml almond milk other plant-based milks will work
- 6 tbsp maple syrup
- 4 tbsp coconut oil melted
- 3 tbsp cacao powder
- Pinch salt
Pre heat your oven to 180C
In a large mixing bowl add the gluten free flour, 4 tbsp maple syrup, 2 tbsp melted coconut oil and the milk and mix well into a smooth batter
Grease your doughnut mould with coconut oil and add the batter into each mould making sure to smooth over the top
Add to the oven for 12-15 minutes (depending how hot your oven runs)
Meanwhile prepare the chocolate topping. To a Bain Marie add 2 tbsp melted coconut oil, 2 tbsp maple syrup and then slowly stir in 2 or 3 tbsp cacao powder until desired consistency
Finally dunk the doughnuts into the chocolate sauce and place on a drying rack. You can now top with whatever you want. Leave to lightly set for 10-15 minutes
Try topping with crushed pistachio or desiccated coconut
I got the inspiration for this batter from my Fluffy Free From Pancakes, if you haven’t tried them yet then DO IT!!!
