Author: Gaspar Carreira
  • 1 cup cooked chickpeas unsalted
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 cup sugar, muscovado or coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup oil, preferably coconut oil melted
  • 2 eggs egg replacement*
  • 1 1/2 cup buckwheat flour
  • 2/3 cup raw cacao powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch sea salt
Chocolate ganache
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil melted, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup raw cacao powder
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C

  2. Put the first 5 ingredients in a food processor and process until a homogeneous mixture is obtained. Add the rest of the ingredients and process again until you have a homogeneous, thick but not sticky mixture. If it is a very dry mixture, add a little more milk. Divide the mixture into 6-8 donut molds and bake for 15-20 minutes or until they are dry on the outside and well cooked on the inside. Let cool and put in the refrigerator.

Chocolate ganache
  1. Mix the ingredients and put in the refrigerator for ten minutes. Mix again and put the ganache on the donuts, add chocolate chunks or chocolate chips and keep them in the refrigerator until you eat them.

Recipe Notes

* You can use an Orgran type egg replacement, or prepare one with 1 teaspoon of flax flour and 3 tablespoons of water for each egg, mix and let stand 15 minutes.
