Chocolate Donuts . . . oh yes, I did!


I bought a donut pan.

My life is forever changed. LOOK!!

Gluten-Free Chocolate Donuts

I made these!

Gluten Free Chocolate Donuts 2

I KNOW, right?????? Aren’t these the PERFECT Valentine’s Day treat? My kids are going to FLIP when they get home from school and find these babies waiting on the counter.


I have this pan: the Norpro Nonstick 6-Count Donut Pan, and I highly recommend it. I actually bought 2 because most recipes make 12, not 6. The 6-count pan makes full-size donuts. The 12-count pan makes mini-donuts, so get the 6. Or get two of them, as I did. SO worth it!

So here’s how. Mine are gluten-free, but I’m pretty sure you can make these with regular all-purpose flour if that floats your boat.

These baked chocolate donuts are gluten free but you won’t miss it!
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 cups gluten-free all purpose flour
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided
  • sprinkles, toasted coconut, or nuts for toppings
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease a donut pan with butter.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, milk and butter.
  3. Add flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, and baking soda. Whisk to combine. Fold in ½ cup chocolate chips.
  4. Spoon batter into donut pan, filling each well about ½ full. Bake 12-15 minutes or until you can lightly touch the tops of the donuts and they feel firm and cooked through. Remove them from the oven, cool 3-5 minutes in the pan, then remove to wire racks and cool completely.
  5. While the donuts cool, place the remaining cup of chocolate chips in a double broiler (or set a glass bowl over a pan of boiling water) and allow them to melt slowly. Spread melted chocolate on each donut, then sprinkle with your favorite topping.

  1. Jo-Lynne, what are you doing in Philly girl? Making these amazing donuts will earn you a visit from from the neighbors and I makes me want to jump through the computer screen.

    1. Try almond milk and melted coconut oil? I think the original recipe was actually written with almond milk and olive oil but olive oil sounded icky to me. I like coconut oil in baked goods and it’s super nutritious too!
