Don't let not eating dairy, eggs or gluten stop you from enjoying doughnuts!

We've been experimenting in our kitchen and have finally perfected a free from baked doughnut. This delicious chocolate version is the perfect way to satisfy all doughnut cravings.


  1. Pre-heat your oven to 180°C.

  2. Make flax seeds 'eggs' by adding 4tbsp of warm water to 2 tbsp of ground flax seeds. Leave to onside to activate.

    • 4 tbsp Warm Water
    • 2 tbsp Flax Seeds (Ground)
  3. Melt the coconut oil and mix with the dark muscovado sugar. 

    • 80g Coconut Oil
    • 150g Unrefined Dark Muscovado Sugar (we like Billington's)
  4. Add the gluten free self-raising flour, flax seed 'eggs', baking powder and cacao powder to the sugar mix.

    Fold in gently. 

    • 220g Gluten Free Self-Raising Flour (we like Doves Farm)
    • 1 tsp Gluten Free Baking Powder (we like Doves Farm)
    • 1 tbsp Cacao Powder
    • 2 tbsp Flax Seeds (Ground)
    • 4 tbsp Warm Water
  5. Add the coconut milk until the batter is moist, between 4 to 6 tbsp.

    • 6 tbsp Coconut Milk
  6. Put the doughnut batter into a large piping bag, once filled cut off the end of the piping bag to create a nozzle. 

  7. Grease your doughnut pan with a little coconut oil, then pipe your batter into each doughnut ring. Try to fill the ring 3/4 full to allow space for the doughnuts to rise in the oven.

  8. Bake your doughnuts for 12 minutes until they are golden brown. Leave to cool slightly before removing from the dougnut pan.

  9. While your doughnuts are cooling, make the chocolate drizzle. Gently mix your icing sugar, water and cacao powder until you get a thick chocolate icing. 

    • 90g Water
    • 225g Icing Sugar (we like Silver Spoon)
    • 1 tbsp Cacao Powder
  10. Once your doughnuts are fully cooled, drizzle the chocolate icing over them and leave to set.

    Then enjoy!!
