Chocolate Doughnuts
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup apple sauce
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp soy or almond milk
  • 3 tbsp canola oil
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Chocolate Ganache
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Lightly spray a donut pan and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl combine flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a separate bowl whisk together apple sauce, soymilk, oil, and vanilla.
  3. Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined.
  4. Spoon or pipe batter into donut pan and bake for 12-15 minutes until donuts spring back when pressed. Remove from oven and let cool slightly before transferring onto a cooling rack to cool completely.
  5. To make the chocolate ganache place chocolate chips in a small bowl. Heat soymilk until just before boil (a thin layer of skin will form on the top of milk when ready). Pour over chocolate chips. Cover for 5 minutes then stir together until chocolate has completely melted and ganache is well combined.
  6. Dip the top of each donut into the chocolate ganache. Let set up slightly (about 5 minutes) before dipping donuts into crushed pistachios. Let ganache set up completely before serving.
