Recipe of the Week: Vegan Hazelnut Doughnuts


2/3 cups raw hazelnuts
1 1/4 cup gluten free flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2/3 cups maple syrup
1/3 cup melted, but not hot coconut oil
2 teaspoons vanilla
2/3 cup full fat coconut milk
Chocolate Ganache Glaze

3/4 cup chocolate chips
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 tablespoon coconut milk
2 tablespoons maple syrup
sprinkles, if desired


Lightly grease a doughnut pan and pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees.

Toast the hazelnuts over medium high heat, moving around every so often until toasted then blend to a fine consistency.

In a large bowl, whisk together the hazelnuts, flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. In another bowl, whisk the maple syrup, coconut oil, vanilla and coconut milk. Add them both together and mix well.

Pipe the mixture into the donut wells and bake until a toothpick inserted into a donut comes out clean. Start checking at 15 minutes. Let them cool while you make the ganache glaze.

Place the chocolate chips and coconut oil into a microwave safe bowl and microwave in 30 second increments, stirring each time. When chocolate is fully melted, stir in the coconut milk and maple syrup. Let cool slightly, then dip the donuts into the ganache and top with sprinkles!
