I love doughnuts; cinnamon sugar doughnuts, iced doughnuts, jam doughnuts, Nutella doughnuts, doughnut bites – literally all doughnuts! But I just happen to be coeliac and refined sugars make me feel gross. So if I do want a doughnut, I have to make one myself. These doughnuts are grain-free, gluten-free, vegan, dairy-free and refined sugar-free but... they are also AWESOME! They look like real doughnuts, taste like doughnuts and, to me, that’s a win-win-win.


Quantity Ingredient
400g tinned chickpeas, chilled
100g linseed meal
200g ground almonds
80g arrowroot flour
or tapioca flour
50g coconut flour
100g coconut sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
250ml almond milk
60ml coconut oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
or 1/2 teaspoon vanilla powder


Quantity Ingredient
150g raw, dark or caramel milk chocolate, melted and cooled
bee pollen, coconut ‘bacon’, activated buckwheat, coconut flakes or cacao nibs, for sprinkling


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Drain the chickpeas well, reserving the liquid. Place the liquid in the bowl of an electric mixer. Using the whisk attachment, whisk it on high speed until it’s very thick and fluffy, like meringue. Set aside.
  3. Stir the linseed meal and 60 ml water together in a bowl.
  4. Place the ground almonds, arrowroot flour, coconut flour, coconut sugar, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda in a mixing bowl. Add the almond milk, coconut oil, vanilla and linseed meal mixture and stir until combined.
  5. Gently fold in the whisked chickpea liquid using a large metal spoon, taking care not to deflate it too much as this will affect the lightness of your doughnuts.
  6. Distribute the mixture evenly among 12 non-stick standard doughnut-shaped moulds. Bake for 20–25 minutes, or until cooked through and golden.
  7. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely.
  8. Once completely cooled, dip one side of each doughnut into melted chocolate, letting any excess drain off, then sprinkle with your preferred toppings.
  9. Enjoy immediately, or store in an airtight container in the fridge. Doughnuts will keep for a couple of days.
