These easy chocolate coconut donuts are made with coconut flour and topped with a dark chocolate glaze.  They're paleo, gluten free and dairy free.






  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Grease 7 slots of a donut pan with oil (I used avocado oil), and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the dry donut ingredients.  This includes the coconut flour, cocoa powder, tapioca starch, baking soda and salt.
  3. Add in the wet ingredients.  This includes the eggs, yogurt, maple syrup and vanilla.  Whisk until smooth.
  4. Let the batter sit for 5 minutes to thicken.
  5. Scoop the donut batter into the greased donut pan, filling each slot nearly to the top. You should get 7 donuts.
  6. Place the donuts in your preheated oven and bake at 350 degrees for 22-23 minutes.
  7. Let the donuts cool in the pan for a few minutes, then carefully remove them and set them on a wire cooling rack. Cool the donuts completely before adding the glaze. I recommend popping them in the fridge to cool.
  8. Once cooled, melt the chocolate and coconut oil for the glaze. Place the chocolate and oil in a microwaveable dish that's large enough to fit one donut. Melt the chocolate at 20-30 second intervals, stirring in-between.
  9. Dip the donuts, one at a time, into the chocolate glaze. Place them back on the wire rack or on a sheet of parchment paper to set. Once you've dipped all the donuts, top them with shredded coconut.
