These secretly healthy, vegan donuts are so easy to make but look impressive and taste divine.
Chocolate Peanut Donuts
- 200g oats
- 20g peanut flour
- 1tsp cinnamon
- 1tsp baking powder
- 200ml almond milk
- 1tsp apple cider vinegar
- 90g smooth peanut butter
- 60ml maple syrup
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- for the Chocolate Coating
- 3tbsp cacao powder + 1.5tbsp boiling water
- 3tbsp maple syrup
- 2 tbsp smooth peanut butter
- To decorate cacao nibs, chia seeds and buckwheat groats
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C and grease a 6-hole muffin tin well.
Place the oats in your Ninja Kitchen blender and whizz up on a low setting for about 30 seconds – 1 minute to form a flour. Tip into a bowl and add the oat flour, peanut flour, cinnamon and baking powder.
Whisk together the milk and vinegar and leave to stand for 5 minutes. Meanwhile whisk together the peanut butter, maple syrup and vanilla.
Pour both into the dry ingredients and stir to combine and form a batter. Divide this between the donut holes to reach the top.
Bake for 25 minutes until golden then leave to cool before transferring to a wire rack.
Once the donuts have cooled, whisk together the cocoa/cacao powder with the boiling water, maple syrup and peanut butter until smooth (add a touch of almond milk if needed). Spoon over each donut then sprinkle over decorations. Enjoy!
