I’ve been working on this chocolate chip donut recipe for a while. The first time I made them, I pretty much nailed the recipe. However, in true Sharon fashion, I didn’t write down all of the ingredients because I figured I’d jot it down when I had the chance that afternoon.
That afternoon was a month ago and here I am, finally with the chance to jot down what I did. Um, yeah. Can’t quite remember. So back to the drawing board, right?
Don’t you just hate that? I finally get a chance to do something a month after I mean to do it. Either I’m terrible with time management or my two toddlers are running me ragged. It’s probably a bit of both, actually.
So, to make amends, I made more donuts. And there ain’t nothin’ wrong with that.
That’s actually a pretty wonderful way to solve a problem. Just bake some donuts. That should be a new mantra: Just Bake Some Donuts.
Somebody, get that on a shirt. Just don’t tell Katy Perry so she doesn’t try to trademark it…
I actually ended up making these chocolate chip donuts a couple different ways. One way is the current recipe with oil and sugar. The other was made with coconut oil and honey. Both recipes use my white rice all-purpose gluten free flour blend.
For the coconut oil and honey version, I used and equal amount of coconut oil in place of the canola oil which I melted after I measured it. I also used an equal amount of honey in place of the sugar. I would probably use a bit less honey for my taste next time I make the healthier version but my husband and kids really liked it that way a lot.
I also used coconut oil in the chocolate glaze in place of butter. Otherwise, the glaze is the same chocolate glaze I used in my double chocolate donut recipe.
These donuts aren’t completely dairy free because of the milk but you could replace it with your favorite non-dairy milk to make them dairy free.
I almost never buy buttermilk because I just add a bit of vinegar to milk instead. It’s cheaper and more convenient because those are two products I always have on hand.
Either way you make them, these chocolate chip donuts are completely delicious. Enjoy!
