5 from 3 reviews

Super chocolatey raw vegan donuts that don't require baking! Toss ingredients into food processor and shape using donut mold. Fun, delicious, gluten-free!


Raw Donuts:

  • ½ cup pitted dates, presoaked and strained*
  • 1 ½ cups almond meal
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder (or raw cacao)
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup

Chocolate Glaze:

  • 1 melted chocolate bar of your choice (about 100gr)
  • 1-2 tbsp coconut cream**

Optional Toppings:


  1. Process all donut ingredients in a food processor into a uniform mixture. Divide this mixture between 4 silicone donut mold cavities and press into the shape of a donut. Freeze for 1 hour (or longer) to set.
  2. Prepare the glaze by mixing the glaze ingredients together. Make sure the glaze mixture isn't too hot, otherwise allow it to cool off a little. Unmold the donuts carefully and dunk each donut into the glaze mixture to coat, then set on a piece of parchment paper, immediately sprinkle with flowers or other toppings (if using). Return to the freezer to set for another 20 mins or so and enjoy! Keep leftover donuts frozen or refrigerated until further use.


*the dates need to be pre-soaked to be very soft and hydrated. To soak, place in a glass bowl and cover in warm water and let stand for about an hour. For a quick soak (not raw) cover in freshly boiled water and let soak for 15 mins. Then strain the water and only use the dates for the recipe.

**for the coconut cream, use only the solid white part at the top of a can that's been chilled overnight.
