By: Kerry


  • 2 cups dates (chopped and soaked in boiling water)
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • ¾ cup chickpea flour
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • ¾ cup organic coconut sugar
  • ½ cup raw organic coconut oil melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder




  • Preheat the oven to 160°C Fan/180°C and grease your mini donut pans.
  • In a large jug or bowl add your dates and pour over the boiled water, leave to soak while you prepare the mixture.
  • Add the egg, coconut oil, sugar mix with a whisk thoroughly to combine.
  • Next add the dates, you’ll notice they will have plumped up, and broken down a little.
  • Slowly add in the chickpea and almond flours, bicarbonate of soda, nutmeg and stir with spatula until combined.
  • Spoon into your donut pans.
  • Pop into the oven for 20-25 mins.
  • To test if the donut is ready, insert a toothpick, if it’s ready it will come out clean, they will also be bouncy to the touch.


  • Best eaten warm, can also be reheated for 30 seconds in the microwave :-)
  • For extra sweetness and stickiness - Melt some vegan butter in a pan and add some maple syrup. Stir for just 1-2 minutes before pouring over donut.
