Hi, my name is Tatjana and today I share a recipe with you guys. Normally I blog here: wiesenkopfschreibsele about baking and gardening and every now and than I bake vegan. Like today.
Ass so many people I love donuts and I tried different recipes. I was very curious how the chocolate donuts with kidney beans would taste. So I tried it of course. I found the recipe here: veganheaven.org.
Rinse and drain the kidney beans. Place them into a blender together with the brown sugar, almond milk, and cacao and blend until the mixture is smooth.
Then transfer it to a medium bowl and stir in the whole-wheat flour, the baking powder, and vanilla. Spray the donut pan with cooking spray or grease it with vegan butter such as Earth Balance.
Either use a spoon to fill each donut or fill the batter into a Ziploc bag and cut off one edge.
Preheat the oven to 350 °F and bake the vegan chocolate hazelnut donuts for 9-11 minutes. Allow to cool down in the pan for a couple of minutes, then move them to a cooling rack.
In the meantime, make the chocolate glaze. Melt a 3.5-ounce package vegan dark chocolate either by using a microwave or place the chocolate into a heatproof bowl and place it over a pan of barely simmering water. Once melted, cover the donuts with the chocolate and sprinkle with hazelnut brittle.
The donuts taste even bette if you add ½ tsp cinnamon to the glaze. Than you get a little bit of Xmas-feeling.
I wish you guys a nice november evening!
