Healthy Chocolate Donuts Made With Sweet Potato






Healthy paleo chocolate glazed donuts made with sweet potato instead of flour! Easy baked donut recipe perfect for celebrations! 

Ingredients

Donuts

  • 1 small white sweet potato raw minced in food processor
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup black cocoa powder or regular cocoa
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 2 tablespoons arrowroot flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda

Glaze

    • 1 cup chocolate chips
    • 1/4 cup coconut oil
    • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Generously grease a donut pan with coconut oil (see notes for the one I use).
  2. In a food processor or blender combine all ingredients for donuts until smooth (the minced sweet potato gets blended raw with the other ingredients).
  3. Transfer batter to a pastry bag and pipe the batter into the donut pan.
  4. Bake on 350F for about 15-18 minutes until a toothpick when inserted comes out clean. Cool before spooning out of pan and cooling on a cooling rack.
  5. Melt ingredients for glaze over low heat in a double boiler. Remove as soon as coconut oil is melted and whisk until smooth. Allow to cool slightly to thicken before pouring over donuts.
