Get into the festive spirit and try out these gluten-free spiced doughnuts – they are simply loaded with vitamins, minerals and healthy fats of dried fruit, nuts and seeds. Deliciously coated with pure dairy-free real dark chocolate, not only do they pack a nutritional punch but they are truly indulgent and naturally sweetened with just maple syrup.

Servings 4

Ingredients

  • 150 g gluten-free rolled oats
  • 2 tablespoons brown rice flour
  • 100 g chopped dates
  • 50 g walnuts
  • 3 tablespoons almond butter
  • 4 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons mixed spice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the chocolate coating:

  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 5 tablespoons cacao powder
  • Pinch of sea salt

To decorate:

  • goji berries
  • dried cranberries
  • walnuts
  • pumpkin seeds
  • cacao nibs
  • Edible glitter if you can get your hands on some!

Instructions

  1. First make the donut mixture: Simply place all the ingredients into a food processor and whizz up for at least 30 seconds until a soft dough forms.
  2. Line 4 donut holes in a tin with clingfilm. Now divide the mixture into 4 and press it into the ring of each one to reach the top, making sure to push it firmly together with your fingers. Chill in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
  3. Once firmed up, place the donuts on a wire rack. Melt the coconut oil and maple syrup then whisk in the cacao powder and sea salt until smooth. Use a teaspoon to coat each donut with the raw chocolate then scatter over your chosen toppings onto each one.
  4. Place in the fridge for at least 1 hour to firm up again.
  5. When ready to serve, remove from the fridge, spray with edible glitter and enjoy!
