Microwave mini doughnuts


Mini Microwave Chocolate Doughnut Holes

This is my original microwave doughnut recipe - using the infamous 2-ingredient dough plus some extras to taste. These are perfect for when you are craving doughnuts, but don't want to wait for the oven to heat up. I often make these as a breakfast recipe, but they are also amazing as a snack. I have even made a 2-ingredient dip to accompany them - the pair is perfect together!

For the doughnuts

  • 40 grams GF self-raising flour
  • 1/4 tsp Xanthan gum Omit if your flour already contains this
  • 0.5 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 30 grams Chocolate protein powder Substitute: cocoa powder
  • 108 grams Dairy-free yoghurt I use almond or soya

  • 15 ml Dairy-free milk Optional: for thinning the sauce to taste
  • Pinch Salt To taste (optional)


For the doughnuts

  • In a bowl, mix all of the doughnut ingredients until combined into a thick but maliable mixture
  • Take about 1 tbsp of mixture and roll into a ball using the palm of your hands (this can become sticky so use flour/cocoa powder to line your hands if required)
  • Pop the mini doughnuts onto a microwaveable plate, spread out so they do not merge when cooking
  • Microwave the doughnuts for 3-3.5 minutes (until they have risen slightly and become spongy)

For the chocolate sauce

  • In a small bowl/ramekin, mix the maple syrup, cacao powder and (optional) sea salt until combined into a thick sauce
  • Optional: if the sauce is too thick, you can add a splash of milk to thin
  • Drizzle the sauce over the doughnuts/serve in a ramekin for dunking and enjoy!
