Prep Time 2 minutes
Cook Time 8 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes
Yield 6 - 7 donuts


  • 3/4 cup white, spelt, or oat flour
  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp additional cocoa powder, or chocolate protein powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup mashed banana (for banana-free, try these Vegan Donuts)
  • 1/4 cup oil, or 1/3 cup nut butter of choice (see note above for fat free)
  • 3 tbsp pure maple syrup, honey, or agave
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1/2 tbsp white or cider vinegar
  • Optional 2 oz melted chocolate (I like to combine it with 2 tsp oil or pure maple syrup for a thinner sauce that makes dipping easier)


  • Grease a donut pan or a mini muffin pan. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Whisk wet ingredients (except melted chocolate) in a mixing bowl. Stir in dry ingredients until evenly mixed (don't over-mix). Bake on the oven's center rack for 8 minutes or until donuts are cooked through and fluffy. Let cool at least 5 minutes before going around the sides with a knife and removing from the pan. If desired, dip in the melted chocolate or frost with your favorite donut glaze recipe.
