Vegan Chocolate Glaze / Dip

1 1/2 tbsp Soy milk (or any alternative milk)
1 tbsp Maple syrup, pure
1 tbsp Cocoa powder, unsweetened
1 tbsp Coconut oil
1 pinch Kosher salt


Preheat oven to 365 degrees F.


Soak dates in warm water for 10 minutes.

Combine the shredded sweet potato, eggs, vanilla, honey, and oil in a large bowl.

Strain dates. In a food processor, blitz dates and add to bowl. (Or you can chop dates finely).

In a smaller bowl, combine the baking powder, baking soda, cocoa powder, and coconut flour and stir. Stir this into the wet mixture until well combined.

Coat a non-stick donut pan with coconut oil (or square pan for brownies lined in parchment). Press down and spread the batter in the donut holes with a spoon or your fingers, makes sure there is no air.

Bake for 15-20 minutes for donuts, 25-30 for brownies. Donuts are done when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Be careful not to over bake!

Meanwhile, to make the glaze, combine all the ingredients in a pot on medium heat. Whisk until melted and homogenous. 

Allow the donuts to cool before removing from the pan.

Drizzle or dip glaze over donuts. Sprinkle with flake salt. Enjoy!
