Ingredients

  • 2/3 cups cocoa powder
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cups brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 2 teaspoons white vinegar
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup peppermint candy, crushed

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the cocoa powder, flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and brown sugar until combined.
  • In a small bowl, stir together the egg, milk, peppermint extract, vinegar, and 1/3 cup coconut oil until combined.
  • Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture until thoroughly combined.
  • Lightly spray a doughnut pan with non-stick cooking spray and spoon in the batter until the wells are 3/4 full.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until the doughnuts have set. Allow the doughnuts to cool in the pan 2 to 3 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Using a double boiler, on medium-low heat, melt the chocolate chips and 2 tablespoons of coconut oil until smooth. Remove from the heat and dip the tops of the doughnuts and top with the crushed peppermint candy.
  • Allow the chocolate topping to set and enjoy.
