Baked Low Fat Whole Wheat Chocolate-Glazed Vegan Doughnuts Recipe

If you follow me on twitter, you already know all about these donuts (and have the recipe). In case you missed it, here is the story: June 5th was National Doughnut Day. Upon learning this, I promised my twitter friends I'd make a recipe we could enjoy guilt-free (a.k.a whole wheat, fat-free and vegan!). I found this recipe but Scott & Jim (my best friend) were in the mood for something chocolately, so I had to get a little creative.

The guys really liked these doughnuts. I felt they could be a little more chocolately, so I added the optional chips in the ingredients list. On the downside, you do need a doughnut pan to make these darlings, but the pans are fairly inexpensive and in addition to making doughnuts, the pan can also be used to bake bagels as well.

Recipe:Chocolate Glazed Doughnuts

Description

Baked, glazed and chocolately but without the fat from deep-frying.

Ingredients

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350F. In a small bowl, whisk 1 cup non-dairy milk, lemon juice, 3 tbsp maple, light brown sugar & 1-2 tsp vanilla together until foamy and bubbly. In a large bowl, whisk flour, cocoa, salt, baking powder, baking soda and chocolate chips (crushed). Pour wet into dry and use a spatula to combine. Spoon into a greased 6-donut pan. Bake 15 minutes. Meanwhile, make icing by whisking the last ingredients together (confectioners sugar, 1 tbsp maple, 1 tsp vanilla and 1-2 tbsp non-dairy milk). Submerge cooked, but cool, doughnuts into icing and let glaze drip off. Transfer to wire wrack for drying.
