Fab Fit Friday: Baked Chocolate Chip Donuts




How many times do you walk into a meeting and donuts are sitting in front of you screaming your name? 
Too many times for me. I learned my lesson after the 10th time of failing the temptation , so I started making
my own to bring. The usual recipe I make usually has egg whites and yogurt but since this is my vegan month 
I had to make some changes. I promise it taste just as great and actually I prefer this one!






 Ingredients:
  • 2 Tbsp Vegan Chocolate Chips
  • 3 Tbsp Vegan Chocolate Chips For Top
  • 1/2 Tbsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/2 Cup Whole Grain Oats
  • 1/4 Cup Unsweetened Applesauce
  • 1 Packet Truvia
  • 1 Small Banana
  • 3 Tbsp Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • 1/4 Cup Ground Flax
  • 1 Tbsp Almond Flour
  • Sprinkles
 Add all ingredients (besides 3 Tbsp of Chips)  to a bowl and mix well. The textures should be very
similar to cooked oatmeal. 




I don't have a donut pan so I use my whoopie pie pan. Make sure to grease with olive oil spray first then 
place 1/4 cups of the mixture into each slot. Flatten to fit. If you don't have a donut pan or whoopie pie
pan you can use a regular baking sheet.




 After baking for 10 minutes at 350 degrees take them out of the oven, flip them over and bake for another
10 minutes. 



To make them into donuts I used a bottle cap to pierce the wholes. Making the holes is optional. They 
work as donut cookies too! 


Microwave chocolate chips until melted and quickly spread 1 Tsp on each donut. 
Top with  sprinkles and let the chocolate harden before stacking


You could also add raisins, nuts or other healthy additives to change it up. 




The recipe will make exactly 6 donuts. 


Stacking them, putting them in a clear bag and tying with a ribbon would make the perfect office or classroom gift. This is also perfect for early morning tailgating. If you frost with with your football team colors and offer them at tailgate people will be very impressed! Maybe I'll do that for this Saturday's Iowa Hawkeye game! Black and Gold baby!
