Prep Time15 mins
Servings6 donuts


  • 1 tbsp ground flaxseed
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 3/4 cup gluten free flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar and 3 tbsp
  • 1/2 cup soy milk
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla
Chocolate Glaze
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar sifted
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder sifted
  • 1/8 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tbsp soy milk warm


  • Preheat oven to 375°F (190° C).
  • Grease your doughnut pan (if needed).
  • Prepare your flax egg by whisking together ground flax seeds and water. Set aside to thicken.
  • In a large bowl, whisk the flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and coconut sugar.
  • In a small bowl, mix the milk, melted coconut oil, vanilla, and flax mixture together.
  • Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix well to combine.
  • Using a piping bag or a large Ziploc bag (see note below), pipe the mixture into each cavity of your doughnut pan.
  • Bake for 10 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and let the pan sit for a few minutes before removing the doughnuts.
  • Remove the doughnuts from the pan and place on a cooling rack.

While doughnuts are cooling, make the glaze

  • Add the powdered sugar to a small bowl and add the warm milk, and vanilla. (Add cocoa powder as well if making the chocolate glaze)
  • Mix until everything has combined into a liquid glaze. (If glaze is too thick, add a little more milk)
  • When the doughnuts have fully cooled (they don’t take long!), dip the tops of each doughnut into the glaze. Repeat with all the doughnuts.
  • Place the doughnuts back onto the cooling rack for the excess glaze to drip off and for the glaze to firm up. (Place a piece of parchment paper under the rack to catch the drips!)
