Easy Chocolate Mini Baked Doughnuts (or is it Donuts?)

Does anyone, except a former English Literature and Linguistics student, care about the nuances between doughnut versus donut? Thought not!

Easy Chocolate Mini Baked Doughnuts

These little one-bite mini versions are simple but chocolatey. Feel free to glaze with a simple coconut oil + high cocoa content chocolate concoction if in the mood for something more decadent. Sprinkles also always an option.

1/4 cup (35g) sifted coconut flour
1/4 cup (25-30g) unsweetened cocoa powder, or cacao
1/2 tsp baking powder
big pinch sea salt

1/2 ripe medium banana
optional 1-2 tbsp honey, agave or maple syrup

 2. Blend together eggs, melted coconut oil, pumpkin puree, banana and any sweetener if using in a high speed blender.
3. Pour wet ingredients into dry - gently and even mix until well incorporated.
4. Fill doughnut moulds three quarters full to allow for rising, in prepared baking tin and carefully smooth surfaces.
