Chocolate Glazed Coconut Flour Doughnuts and a Fair Trade Giveaway!


October is Fair Trade Month, and if you've been reading this blog for very long, then you know each year I join the efforts of Fair Trade USA to help promote this worthwhile cause. Buying Fair Trade means you’re getting high quality products and the people who grow, sew and craft them get fair compensation for their hard work.

Today I have an awesome giveaway of Fair Trade Certified products for one lucky reader, along with something for everyone - a recipe for these sweet mini chocolate-glazed donuts!


Just take a look at all of these goodies! This contest is open to US residents. The winner will be contacted via email. Contest ends Oct. 31.

As for me, I zeroed in on the coconut flour. I tossed around several ideas before deciding on mini baked donuts. The baked donuts are cakey with mild coconut flavor. I used moscovado sugar and mini chocolate chips in the batter which gave the donuts a chocolate chip cookie flavor. I had inhaled three-ish right from the oven, but since they are 'mini' that only equals one regular donut. That's what I'm telling myself anyway!


I prefer an assortment of donut toppings, so after the donuts were dipped in chocolate glaze I sprinkled 1/3 of the batch with white nonpareils, another 1/3 with cacao nibs (mmm my fave!) and the remaining donuts were drizzled with white chocolate.


These little doughnuts taste indulgent even though they are baked and not fried. The coconut flour is a delicious, healthful alternative to wheat and other grain flours. I love that it's high in fiber and relatively low in carbs. If you have gluten intolerance, be sure to use chocolate chips that are gluten-free such as Sunspire.

One more thing - the participating Fair Trade Month bloggers are having a friendly pinning competition. Check out our Pinterest Board to find new delicious recipes, and pin your favorites!


Chocolate-Glazed Coconut Flour Doughnuts (GF)
Yields about 30 mini doughnuts

This recipe requires the use of a mini donut pan. You can find them in kitchen specialty shops and online. Be sure to use chocolate chips and cocoa powder that are clearly marked as gluten free. See blog post for product referrals.

1/2 cup (50g) Arrowhead Mills coconut flour
1/4 cup (55g) moscovado sugar or dark brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon fine grain sea salt
1/3 teaspoon baking soda
4 eggs
1/2 cup (56g) unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
Or Spectrum coconut oil, melted
1/3 cup (60g) gluten free mini chocolate chip cookies
1 cup powdered sugar
6 tablespoons gluten free dark cocoa powder
Milk or cream
Sprinkles, cacao nibs, or other desired toppings

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly coat the cavities of a mini donut pan with cooking spray.

Combine the coconut flour, moscovado, salt and baking soda in a large bowl. Whisk to incorporate. Whisk in the eggs and melted butter. Fold in the mini chocolate chips. Transfer the batter to a piping bag with a 1/2-inch opening. Pipe the batter 3/4 full into the donut cavities. Bake the donuts for 7-10 minutes, or until puffed and fragrant. Turn the donuts out onto a wire rack to cool.

Wash the donut pan and re-grease; repeat process until all of the batter is used.

When donuts are cool, prepare the glaze. Combine the powdered sugar and cocoa powder in a medium bowl. Whisk to combine. Whisk in milk or cream a little at a time until a thick, glossy glaze is achieved. Dip the tops of each donut into the glaze and let stand 2 minutes; add sprinkles, cacao nibs and or other toppings.

Let donuts stand until completely set, about 1 hour. Share with friends.
Store the donuts in an airtight container.
