So I don’t know how to break this to you but…
I got a donut pan! Or is it doughnut? Guess what. I don’t care!
I had to break it in of course. Just like shoes.
And I had to break it in with a recipe that is healthy but doesn’t taste healthy. Because nobody wants a donut that doesn’t taste sinful. And seriously, these gluten-free donuts fit the bill! Just check the ingredient list! Then do a backflip. Then make them.
My Peanut Butter Chip Donuts are cakey, moist and studded with little surprise peanut butter chips. Surprise! The best! And, of course, glazed with a rich, dark chocolate peanut butter glaze. Yes please!
- ½ cup oat flour
- ½ cup brown rice flour
- 2 Tbs. coconut flour
- ¼ cup granulated Stevia (or sugar)
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- ½ tsp. salt
- ¼ cup creamy peanut butter, melted (I used Jif Natural)
- 2 large eggs
- 2 Tbs. fat-free Greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 2 tsp. vanilla extract
- ¼ cup peanut butter chips
- ½ cup dark chocolate chips
- 1 Tbs. creamy peanut butter
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Spray your donut pan with nonstick spray.
- In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients (oat flour, brown rice flour, coconut flour, Stevia, baking powder and salt).
- In a separate mixing bowl, combine the eggs, Greek yogurt, almond milk and vanilla. When those are well mixed, add the melted peanut butter.
- Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and begin to stir. Before all of the dry ingredients are incorporated, add the peanut butter chips and stir. Stir until *just* combined and still slightly lumpy (do not over-mix).
- Use a spoon, piping bag, or small cookie scoop to portion out the batter into the donut pan, leaving a small amount of room in the top of each. (wipe off the center metal piece of each donut)
- Bake for 15 minutes. When checking for doneness, your toothpick should be slightly moist, not sticky and not dry.
- Let the donuts cool in the pan for a couple minutes before turning them out on a wire rack to finish cooling. If you're going to glaze the donuts, wait until they're fully cooled to do so.
- Glaze: Combine the chocolate chips and peanut butter in a wide-rimmed bowl and microwave for 1 minute, stopping to stir it half-way through. If needed, microwave for 20 more seconds to finish melting them together. Carefully dip the tops of each donut into the glaze, letting the extra drip off before flipping them and letting them set on a wire rack. You can place the donuts in the fridge to speed up the setting process.
- Store the donuts in an air-tight container in the fridge until you're ready to serve them. Enjoy!
