Ingredients
  • 70 gr avocado oil or coconut oil, organic, refined and melted (must be warm)
  • 112 ml Forager Project cashew milk (or any vegan unsweetened milk)
  • 112 ml Forager Project sour cream (or any vegan unsweetened yogurt)
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar such as Braggs
  • 126 gr coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 168 gr gluten free flour Bobs Red Mill 1: 1 (blue label only)
  • 28 gr vegan cocoa (I love Santa Barbara Chocolate)
  • 1 teaspoon gluten free, aluminum free baking powder (at high altitude use ½ teaspoon)
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda (at high altitude use ¼ teaspoon)
  • ¼ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 56 gr finely chopped 72% organic chocolate Santa Barbara: use code CHEFVANESSA to get 10 % off (I chopped mine in Thermomix at speed 8 for 1 min to chop really finely)
Method
  1. Prepare a donut pan: I use a silicon mold (place this on a perforated tray). Preheat oven to 350 C/170 C.
  2. In the bowl of your Thermomix: mix at speed 2 combine the Forager Project cashew milk, Forager Project sour cream and apple cider vinegar. Add coconut sugar, vanilla, oil and mix 30 seconds at speed 4.
  3. Add flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt and mix 20 seconds at speed 5. Scrape the bowl with the spatula.
  4. Add chopped chocolate and mix 10 seconds speed 3. Put batter into a pastry bag.
  5. Put the batter into the prepared donut pan filling the donuts ⅔ full and bake 12 minutes aprox (or until a toothpick comes out clean) in a convection oven. Take out and let cool. Un mold, cool, freeze (so it’s easier to glaze) and decorate with chocolate glaze:
Notes
Chocolate glaze:
⅓ cup Organic powdered sweetener
⅛ cup Santa Barbara vegan cocoa
½ teaspoon vanilla
60 gr 70 % chocolate chopped in Thermomix
