chocolate crumb donuts.

CHOCOLATE. CRUMB. DONUTS.  Yes, I said it.  This is what we have here.  I ate two right from the oven and they are DEVINE.  They make your house smell like a fudgey batch of brownies.  Delicious.  Dunk them in some milk (almond milk for me – I just don’t like the taste of cow’s milk) and you got yourself a nice little midnight snack! 🙂

RECIPE: (makes 12 donuts)

for the donuts:

  • 1 & 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1/2 cup melted butter

for the crumb topping:

  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup butter, slightly soft
  • 2 tablespoons mini chocolate chips


  • preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • in a large bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, and cocoa powder
  • in a separate bowl, combine egg, vanilla, almond milk, and melted butter
  • pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients in about 3 increments, mixing after each addition
  • in a separate bowl, combine ingredients for crumb topping
  • use a fork or your hands (I used my hands – makes it way easier even though it’s more messy!) and combine all ingredients until the mixture forms crumbs
  • grease a donut pan, add batter (3/4 full) and sprinkle crumb topping over each donut
  • bake for about 10-12 minutes until toothpick or knife comes out clean
  • cool on wire rack
  • serve with some almond milk… MMM! enjoy!
