Red Velvet Donuts *GF DF*

I had visions of these donuts being red white and blue for the Fourth of July. They were going to be so cute and patriotic. So I microwaved the blueberries and ~apparently~ they turn red and not even slightly blue. Womp womp.

So here are some very red donuts for the Fourth with blueberries on top so that they’re actually patritioc-ish.

Red Velvet Donuts

Makes 6

1/2 cup almond flour

1/2 cup oat flour

2 Tbsp cocoa powder

2 Tbsp beet powder

3 Tbsp coconut sugar

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 cup applesauce

1 egg white

1/4 tsp apple cider vinegar

  1. Preheat oven to 350 and grease a donut tray.
  2. Mix the dry ingredients, and then add the applesauce, egg white, and vinegar.
  3. Pour (or really plop because it’s kind of thick) the batter into the tray, and then smooth it out with your fingers. Bake for 10-15 minutes.

For the White Chocolate Frosting

1/2 cup cocoa butter

3 Tbsp coconut oil

3 Tbsp sugar (I used white so it wouldn’t be too beige, but you can use any kind)

1 tsp vanilla

3 Tbsp blueberries

  1. Microwave the blueberries for 40 seconds or until liquidy. Set aside.
  2. In a double boiler*, melt the cocoa butter and coconut oil. Then, add the sugar and allow to melt.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
  4. Refrigerate for 15 minutes, stirring every 5 to make sure the sugar doesn’t settle.
  5. Remove from the refrigerator and continue to stir every 5 minutes, watching closely. It solidifies quickly, so be careful! You want to use it when it is thick but pourable.
  6. Β Pour the blueberries through a strainer so that you are left with just the juice. Swirl into the white chocolate, and then spread onto the donuts.

 

*To make a double boiler, place a metal bowl over a pot of boiling water. Make sure the water does not reach the bottom of the bowl!
