Gluten Free Chocolate Donuts
Don’t you just LOVE how these donuts look? Can you imagine what they taste like? The optional mint. The chocolate. The moist donut. I can literally taste this without even taking a bite!
If you know anything about me, you know that I am a creature of habit. I pretty much eat the same thing for breakfast EVERY DAY. I either make myself a plate of bacon and eggs or I have a salted caramel collagen shake.
But sometimes I want either a sweet side for my eggs or I just want to change it up altogether. And given that at the time of writing this we are venturing through the holiday season, why not add some mint on top of an already delicious donut?
I mean, mint and pumpkin just take the stage in the fall and winter, right?
These delicious gluten free chocolate donuts are topped with actual Andes mints. Now THAT is what I’m talking about! It is optional, of course, but I don’t think you’ll want to miss that part!
Are Andes Mint Chocolates Gluten Free?
Yes, I am happy to report that they are! Now, always check your labels because things change and similar products can have different ingredients.
BUT, yes, Andes Mints are gluten free!
How to Store Gluten Free Chocolate Donuts
The best way to keep these gluten free chocolate donuts fresh is to store them in an airtight container and then place them in the refrigerator. That is, if you have any remaining which you probably won’t.
They should maintain their delicious state for 3-4 days if stored properly.
You will need some sort of donut mold. I use 2 different kinds and like them both equally.
Honestly, it all comes down to preference. I’ve made delicious donuts in both and messed up donuts in both. Preference!
How to Make Gluten Free Mint Chocolate Donuts
Let’s make some donuts!!
The first thing you want to do is to preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease two donut pans with coconut oil or cooking spray. Unless your donut pan has 12 slots, but most have 6 and we WANT 12.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sweetener, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Go ahead and just set this aside for later.
In a small bowl, add milk, egg, melted butter, and mint extract. Whisk until well combined.
Pour the milk mixture into the dry ingredients and whisk until nicely combined.
Spoon or pipe the batter into the donut pan, filling each cavity around 2/3 of the way full.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. You can tell that they are done if they bounce back when you lightly press on the top.
Let cool slightly, then place donuts on a wire rack to finish cooling.
Now for the Glaze!
Add powdered sweetener, cocoa powder, milk and chocolate mints to a small bowl.
Whisk ingredients together until a smooth glaze forms.
Dip cooled donuts in the glaze, then top with chopped chocolate mint candy.
