Vegan Spelt Baked Doughnuts with Raw Chocolate Glaze. Some of my family called in last Saturday, when I had ‘coincidentally’ just finished recipe testing these vegan spelt baked donuts with raw chocolate glaze (they all know Saturday’s a shoot day). ☺ Now my dad is not usually one for liking ‘healthy’ desserts, but after trying these vegan donuts straight from the oven, he couldn’t stop at one.

Good news for me! Did I also mention they’re refined sugar free?! These doughnuts are a little more cake like in texture than usual, which helps them keep longer as they don’t go dry and ‘bready’. This also means there’s no need to eat them all on the one day, but hey, no judgement here. Today I’ve used raw vegan chocolate for coating the doughnuts, but you could use any dark chocolate you like. I do realise that I say this so often in my recipes, but these really are SO easy to make, and a great recipe to get the kids involved in too!

Let me know how you go with the recipe! Enjoy! Ingredients Doughnuts Toppings Method Free Resources Love this post? Vanilla Spelt Cookies with Avocado Chocolate Filling & Berry Chia Jam. Chocolate Aquafaba Mousse.

I’ve had some exciting few weeks, which is why it has been a bit quiet on the recipe side, but today, I’d like to introduce you to a German specialty: plum cake with buckwheat & spelt dough.

Plum Cake with Buckwheat & Spelt Dough - Heavenlynn Healthy

The original dough is obviously not made with buckwheat or spelt, but normal white flour, but white flour isn’t really nutritious, so whole-wheat it is. Germans eat their plum cake with a yeast dough – now, this might seem very strange to non-Germans, but trust me, it’s divine. The dough is similar to that of bread: flour, yeast, almond milk and a bit of coconut oil, and you simply top it with fruit, but you normally only see it with plums, or damsons, a special and very sweet kind of plum that we get over here.

The Raw Brownie

Ready? The Raw Brownie. I guess I haven’t mentioned it yet, but I am now working as a chef in the premier raw food restaurant in Copenhagen. Yes, I still have my other restaurant job and I still love “cooking”, but it was time to immerse myself in something new to learn more and deepen my understanding of how food can come together.
