Baked Chocolate Covered Matcha Mini Doughnuts [Vegan]
16 mini doughnuts
For the Doughnuts:
- 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/3 cup coconut sugar
- 1/4 cup almond meal
- 2 tablespoons matcha powder
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- Pinch of salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
- 1 teaspoon lime juice
- 1/3 cup almond milk
- 3 tablespoons coconut oil
- 1/2 cup apple sauce
For the Chocolate Icing:
- 2/3 cup vegan dark chocolate
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil
Preheat your oven to 350°F. Spray your doughnut pan lightly with oil.
In a big bowl mix all the dry ingredients together.
Separately whisk together all the wet ingredients.
Combine both dry and wet ingredients and mix until you get a dough.
Spoon the dough into prepared doughnut pan. Do not fill all to the top (about 2/3).
Bake for about 15 or 20 minutes (until toothpick comes out clean). Let cool down before removing from the pans.
In the meantime melt the dark chocolate and the oil in a water bath on a stovetop.
Dunk cooled doughnuts about halfway in the chocolate and let cool down.
Top with anything — coconut, cocoa nibs, or chopped nuts (optional).
