“Chique” Doughnut Dots

I have never met anyone who doesn’t love doughnuts. If there are people out there, let me know, but I can not imagine. They are my ultimate weakness. I try to limit my intake to once a week on Saturday or Sunday. Except last week, we found ourselves indulging on the deliciousness of Glazed & Infused on both weekend mornings. Is it bad that they know us by name? Oh heavens no, I call it good customer service!

Despite the fact that I will be bikini clad in nearly a month, it didn’t stop us. Today, we were craving more sweet treats. This time, the boys requested to bake them ourselves. We have made pumpkin doughnuts before from Weelicious as seen here so, as an activity on this rainy, cold “summer” day we decided to bake chocolate ones.

We based our recipe on this one, but changed it a bit. We omitted the cinnamon and added in a 1/2 teaspoon coconut oil for a little extra flavor. The recipe called for a doughnut pan, which we don’t own, but I am seriously considering making the small investment. The recipe only makes 6 full size doughnuts so we went the doughnut hole route, except ours looked more like doughnut dots.

Chocolate Coconut Doughnut Dots

1 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons soft butter
1/2 cup organic sugar
1 large egg
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon coconut oil

Icing:
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon milk or cream
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 375. Combine first 4 ingredients. Then with a mixer cream the butter and sugar. Then add egg, milk, vanilla and coconut oil and mix. Add the flour mixture and combine until mixed. Put in a pastry bag to pipe into small dots on a wax paper lined baking sheet. Bake at 375 for 10 minutes. While in the oven prepare the icing. Let them cool a bit befor icing. We also sifted powdered sugar over half. Next time, I may add more coconut oil or substitute coconut oil for milk and then sprinkle coconut on top. So many ways to enjoy!
