Clean Donut Muffins- D/F, G/F


 

Originally this was supposed to be for just donuts, but I could not find a donut tray anywhere in town so a normal muffin tin was used. Now I have claimed it as donut muffins! Well, it’s actually more of a donut texture but it looks flat like a muffin.  Sometimes we just have to roll with it!

These are great for an afternoon treat or the kids lunch box – even a party as they look so deliciously naughty! They actually aren’t though! The trickery is real and I’m not ashamed to say that I love to fool small children into eating healthier! Mwahaha.

Have fun with the toppings too. I will give you  a few idea’s but really it’s all about what you like and how creative you can get!

This recipe takes about 5-10 mins to prep, 10 mins to bake and is all done in a blender. Easy, quick and yum is how this EAT blog rolls.

These are G/F and D/F -depending on your topping.

What You Will Need

  • 1 can of Black Beans – rinsed and drained
  • 3 free range eggs
  • 3 Tablespoons of Coconut Oil (you may need to heat this for a liquid texture)

  • 1/2 cup of Cacao Powder
  • 2 teaspoons of Coconut Flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon of Pure Vanilla Extract
  • Pinch of Himalayan  Salt

Icing

I used our Loving Earth Dark Chocolate, but most dark chocolate is fine (but make sure it is over 70% cocoa).

  • 60 grams of Dark Chocolate
  • 2 Tablespoons of Pure Maple Syrup
  • 2 Tablespoons of Coconut Oil

How To

  • Preheat the oven to 170°C and grease your baking tray.
  • Place your wet ingredients into blender and blend until smooth.
  • Add remaining ingredients to blender and continue to blend to they are smooth and combined well.
  • Pour mixture into your tray and place it in the oven for 8-10 minutes OR until you can stab it with a knife and it comes out clean.
  • Allow to cool before icing.

Icing

  • Place all ingredients into a saucepan on low heat, continue to stir until melted and smooth.
  • Ice your donut muffins!

Time to get creative!

  • Cacao nibs
  • Hundreds and Thousands
