  • 2 teaspoons vegan butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Whisk together almond flour, potato starch, sugar, cocoa powder, guar gum, baking soda and baking powder. Add chocolate chips and combine again. Add in melted butter, apple sauce, almond milk, apple cider vinegar and vanilla. Combine until smooth, batter will be thick.
  3. Spoon batter into an icing bag and snip about an inch off the end. Alternatively, you can use a large ziplock bag and snip about an inch off the corner tip.
  4. Grease your donut pan and pipe batter into donut wells. Place into preheated oven and bake at 350 degrees for about 20-25 minutes. Remove from oven and let them stand for 5 minutes. Then flip them over carefully onto a cooling rack. Allow donuts to cool completely before glazing them.
  5. While donuts are cooling, mix together your glaze in a large bowl. After donuts have cooled, dip each donut into the bowl of glaze and carefully flip over allowing glaze to cover entire donut. Place glazed donut on rack to allow glaze to harden.
  6. Serve and enjoy!! Store any leftovers in airtight container. May be frozen for 6 weeks and thawed to room temperature to serve.
