Chocolate Baked Donuts are a true chocolate lover’s dream!  These oven baked donuts have a soft cake-like texture, a rich & creamy homemade chocolate frosting, and fun & festive chocolate sprinkles on top.  Plus these healthy donuts are completely gluten free & dairy free. They’re an irresistible, melt-in-your-mouth chocolate treat! 






  1. Set the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large mixing bowl combine the almond butter, applesauce, eggs, coconut sugar, maple syrup, and vanilla extract until smooth.
  3. Next add in the almond flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt.  Combine.
  4. Then grab & grease your donut pan and fill each donut about 3/4 of the way with the donut batter.  You should be able to make 9 donuts!
  5. Bake for 10 minutes.
  6. Remove from the oven and let cool completely.
  7. While the donuts are cooling, start making the chocolate frosting.  Combine the chocolate chips and almond milk and melt until smooth.  I recommend doing this in a double boiler on the stove over low heat.
  8. To get the classic donut look, flip the donuts over and dip the bottom side into the chocolate frosting.  Optional: add the chocolate sprinkles at this point.
  9. Enjoy!
