These vegan chocolate baked doughnuts with oat flour are healthy, delicious, gluten-free, wholesome and most importantly, VEGAN! Yay for veganism!
If you follow me on Instagram, you know I made mini doughnuts before; however, I wanted to make a vegan baked chocolate doughnut version, and here it is! This recipe is adapted from PETA’s Baked Vegan Doughnuts, and uses oat flour so it’s gluten-free!
For this recipe, I used oat flour instead of all-purpose flour. I find that oat flour makes the doughnuts chewier, which I really like! It also makes the recipe wholesome! You can make your own oat flour by blending oat flakes in the blender, which grinds it into a powder.
This recipe can be used to make pancakes instead, but I wouldn’t recommend making regular-sized baked doughnuts because these are quite chewy (and not cakey or fluffy).
The mini doughnuts are ready when you insert a toothpick and it comes it out clean. If you overfilled the pans before baking and there’s no hole in the middle, you can hollow it using a chopstick or a small knife. I had some of these, but I fixed them.
Let it cool on a rack, and make your chocolate glaze (or any glaze you want to use) while it cools. I used my favourite chocolate chips, PC’s “The Decadent” Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips! To thin it out, I used coconut oil, which gave the glaze a coconut-y flavour (I LOVE COCONUT).
Dip the mini doughnuts in the chocolate glaze halfway, and top with whatever you want to put on top! For mine, I topped with almonds, chocolate shavings and almond flour. You can also put sprinkles, chocolate chips, cereal or graham crackers.
Enjoy these vegan chocolate baked mini doughnuts with oat flour! Let me know how you like them if you decide to make these!
You can put any toppings you want on your doughnuts, from nuts to chocolate shavings to sprinkles and even cereal!
You can also use candy melts or white chocolate instead of chocolate to acts as a glaze for your doughnuts. Royal icing glaze also works if you like that better.
