Baked chocolate doughnuts with cacao

These baked chocolate doughnuts with cacao by Lucy Bee are absolutely heavenly. Anyone with a sweet tooth will definitely appreciate them!


100g Lucy Bee Coconut Oil, melted, plus extra for greasing

30g Lucy Bee Coconut Flour

20g Lucy Bee Cacao Powder/Drinking Chocolate

1 tbsp Lucy Bee Lucuma Powder

1/2 tsp gluten free baking powder

1/4 ts. bicarbonate of soda

A pinch of Lucy Bee Himalayan Salt

60g honey

4 eggs

For the glaze:

50g dark chocolate, 70% cocoa solids

1 tsp Lucy Bee Coconut Oil

2 tbsp desiccated coconut, optional


Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/gas mark 4. Grease a doughnut tin with a little Lucy Bee Coconut Oil.

Sieve Lucy Bee Coconut Flour, Lucy Bee Cacao Powder, Lucy Bee Lucuma Powder, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and Lucy Bee Himalayan Salt, into a medium bowl.

Whisk together Lucy Bee Coconut Oil, honey and eggs in a jug, then pour this over the dry ingredients. Whisk everything together until the mixture is smooth.

Divide the mixture between the doughnut holes – you don’t need to fill to the top as the mixture will rise (if your tin only has six holes you’ll have to do this in batches) and bake for 10-12 minutes, until springy to the touch.

In the meantime, make the glaze. Gently melt the chocolate with Lucy Bee Coconut Oil in a small pan. Set aside to cool slightly.

Remove the doughnuts from the tin, leave to cool for 5 minutes, then dip the top of each one into the glaze and sprinkle with desiccated coconut, if using. Leave to cool and set fully on a wire rack.
