Chocolate Mint Cake Donuts

by Lori and Michelle on May 27, 2011

Happy Friday!!

We are starting our holiday weekend with these babies…another mint chocolate combo, we just love it!

Once chocolate cake donuts are cooled, dip into mint glaze.

A little messy, but that is the fun part.

These chocolate mint baked donuts tasted just like cake!

*Just a side note, these donuts are a little delicate, so be careful

Do not think I need to tell you how good these were :)

We have something fun planned for tomorrow and it involves someone special while enjoying something we love. Any guesses?

Twins Question: What are you doing for Memorial weekend?

Till next time,

P2R twins

ohmygosh!!! I am bookmarking this!!!!! I LOVE chocolate mint-absolute fav! But…. i don’t have a donut pan….other ideas?

I’ve just recently discovered that I do really love the chocolate mint combo (for some reason I thought I didnt). These look delish! Have a GREAT weekend! I can’t wait for lots of relaxing :)

Ela May 27, 2011 at 10:28 am

Those are so beautiful–that perfect green-on-black coloring–and ingredients to feel good about too! I don’t have a donut pan, but maybe I can improvise with muffin cups, stick something in the middle!

Sarena (The Non-Dairy Queen) May 27, 2011 at 10:29 am

I’m having coffee right now…these would be perfect with it! I hope you two have a great weekend.

Pure2 May 27, 2011 at 10:49 am

haha yes Gabriela, you know us well

Pure2 May 27, 2011 at 10:49 am

Alex a cupcake or mini bundt cake pan would work

Pure2 May 27, 2011 at 10:50 am

Natalie – ya our mom hates mint chocolate too

Mama Pea May 27, 2011 at 11:17 am

Those are so cute and I love the green. I always use spinach, but spirulina is genius!

Pure2 May 27, 2011 at 11:57 am

Mama Pea – we just love spirulina!

Pure2 May 27, 2011 at 11:57 am

Thank you so much Juli!!!

Allyson May 27, 2011 at 12:35 pm

love the juxtaposition of colors, textures and flavors in these!

Little Bookworm May 27, 2011 at 1:03 pm

Those sound amazing! Love the colour of the green icing as well. :)

Well, I hope I’m making these donuts this weekend. However, mine will have to be chocolate mint muffins since I have no donut pans. I’m sure they’ll be just as good, but not nearly as pretty. :)

melissa @ the delicate place May 27, 2011 at 4:09 pm

/drool how goes the sugar thing? are you guys having it regularly now or just in moderation? i’m grilling beef for memorial day! so ready to enjoy sunshine and walks!

Pure2 May 27, 2011 at 5:40 pm

aww Heather yes they will still be beautiful! :) xoxo

Pure2 May 27, 2011 at 5:41 pm

Melissa just in moderation, some days we have a little more sugar than others, but still trying to eat low sugar.

Danielle May 27, 2011 at 8:27 pm

Where can I find coconut butter? so that I can make these :)

Averie (LoveVeggiesandYoga) May 27, 2011 at 8:38 pm

they look great and i love the MINTY green dippage!

Katie May 27, 2011 at 11:02 pm

I want these NOW!!! I wanted these for my birthday cake dinner!

Pure2 May 28, 2011 at 4:46 am

Danielle, most health food stores should sell coconut butter, if you can not find it coconut oil should be ok, or you can make your own coconut butter – by places coconut flakes in a food processor or blender and blend till creamy. this process can take a few minutes to make the flakes creamy but if you keep going it should make coconut butter.

Pure2 May 28, 2011 at 4:47 am

aww Katie we will have to remake them just for you and your birthday!

emma May 28, 2011 at 5:05 am

ooooooohhh! i have all the ingredients except the kefir…..but yay!!!! i’m heading into the kitchen now!

Jennifer Leonard (big sis) May 28, 2011 at 8:03 am

Texture looks good! Make the green a little less strong, can you make it look a little bit creamier? Still looks great!

Pure2 May 28, 2011 at 8:46 am

haha thanks sis, we will try better next time

bitt of raw May 28, 2011 at 4:01 pm

these donuts are killing me! well killing me because I am not eating one right now and I wish I was.

Megan May 28, 2011 at 7:40 pm

I made these and they rocked! So awesome, thanks!

Gillian May 29, 2011 at 4:33 am

I drool every time you post donuts! Mmmmm

astrorainfall May 29, 2011 at 5:12 am

OMG…I wanna eat my screen….

Rebecca June 8, 2011 at 10:04 pm

I have these cooling in the pan now. Tried to make the frosting & used regular whole organic milk & coconut oil as I didn’t have butter, but it would not come together.

Pure2 June 9, 2011 at 4:10 am

Rebecca you might try a binding agent to hold it together. Oil can be hard to make frosting sometimes we have noticed. I will try adding in a lecithin, or guar or xanthan gum to help hold it together. Hopefully that helps, or might even try adding in a ‘dry’ ingredient like coconut flour, soy flour to see if that helps.

Linda @ Lemon Drop January 4, 2012 at 3:55 pm

made these today for the kids and they were a SUPER hit. They are definitely fragile donuts but I found dipping the cooled donuts into a basic glaze then letting the glaze set really gave them stability. I was so happy that these are gluten free but above that, that they contain flax and all the kids had no clue. Try to get them to eat flax meal in anything else and no go but these did it !

Lori and Michelle January 4, 2012 at 5:13 pm

Linda so happy to hear this! Yes a little fragile but worth it! So glad to hear that the kids loved it :) YAY

Lori and Michelle January 23, 2012 at 8:22 am

This recipe is so yummy, I used to make it all the time. Now I’m grain free, wondering if you could suggest substitutes for the Brown Rice flour part? Would Coconut flour and Arrowroot work? I miss my donuts. London :(

Lori and Michelle November 2, 2013 at 12:10 pm

London check out our blog over on we have a lot of grain-free recipes there including donuts.
