Enter to Win a Dr. Bob’s Donuts and Doyos Complete Starter Kit!

Donut Solo Shot

You might recall a few blog posts back a certain donut I made for Andy: Gluten Free and Vegan Banana Maple Walnut Donuts with Banana Date Filling using Dr. Bob’s Blonde Mix. That was fine, but what about me? 😉 This time I decided to make a donut with a few of my favorite flavor combinations: Hazelnut and Chocolate!

First, I made the donut base with Dr. Bob’s Chocolate Mix and a few other ingredients:

Donut Base:
Dry Ingredients:
3/4 cup Chocolate Mix
2 Tbs Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
2 Tbs Hazelnut Flour
2 Packets Stevia or Zylitol

Liquid Ingredients:
3/4 cup of Hazelnut Coffee (or regular coffee if you do not have hazelnut)
3 Tbs Nut Milk of Your Choice
1 Tbs Frangelico or Sugar Free Hazelnut Syrup

Mix all the dry ingredients in a medium-sized bowl, and mix all of the liquid ingredients in a smaller-sized bowl. Add the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until thoroughly combined.

I like to spray/grease my silicone pan with Coconut Oil Spray (which can be found at Trader Joe’s) before adding the donut batter to the it.

Then I microwaved for 2 minutes (yep, that’s all it takes) and the donuts were done!

Chocolate Donuts
Allow the donuts to cool, and for an extra flavor boost, poke holes in them with a fork, and using a pastry brush, dab them with more Frangelico or hazelnut syrup.

For the filling, I used a hazelnut spread called Nocciolata is Italy’s health-conscious answer for a chocolatey treat. Crafted using carefully selected ingredients, including dark chocolate from the Antillean Islands, Italian hazelnuts (with low-fat content), raw cane sugar, skimmed milk and Bourbon vanilla extract, this high-quality certified organic spread is also free from trans fats, artificial flavors, colors or preservatives.

You can find Nocciolata on Facebook here, follow them on Twitter here and follow them on Pinterest here. You can find Nocciolata at Nugget Market!

Nocciolata Spread
Icing and Topping:
6 oz. semisweet chocolate or chips
1 Tbs butter
1/2 cup toasted and chopped hazelnuts

For the topping, I just melted a little semisweet chocolate, 1 Tbsp of butter and a tiny bit more of the Frangelico. To ice the donuts, I carefully dipped them into the melted chocolate and set them on parchment paper. I then topped each one with toasted, chopped hazelnuts, then returned to each donut with a final drizzle of chocolate on their tops, so that the hazelnuts would stay in place.

And here’s the delectable cross-section. OMG. 😛

    I would love to make chocolate mocha donuts with this kit! Such a great treat. Im going to your FB site to Like now.

  22. Check, Check, Check, Check. I liked, followed, shared, the works…

    I would like to create a chocolate, date spread, peanut butter drizzle, coconut flake donut for my non-vegan donut-loving-brother to consume lovingly, followed by an expression of utter surprise at the realization that is is not only vegan, but healthy and delicious.

    I will then proceed to “drop the mic” (or in my case, reindeer-printed spatula I will have used to produce my magical batch of donuts.)

    Donut leave me hanging. I would simply adore the opportunity to have this lovely little kit.

  23. Wow it is hard to come up with a recipe better than yours, especially since I’ve never tried Nocciolata and it looks delicious. But if I had the starter kit with the blonde unsweetened mix, I would make those plain and top them with some almond butter for a quick breakfast.

    And I posted your contest on my blog’s Facebook page. Good luck, everyone!

    Wow, Kristy, the dark chocolate and hazelnut sounds delish. I might go with walnuts. I liked Dr Bob’s FB and yours and shared this on my FB. I would love to win this. 🙂
