Baked chocolate peppermint donuts with brownie-like richness and refined sugar-free sweetness from Medjool dates for a decadent holiday dessert!




Optional: crushed candy canes to decorate


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. Blend the Medjool dates, nondairy milk, almond butter, and peppermint extract.
  3. Transfer to a bowl. Add the cacao powder, salt, and baking soda. Mix.
  4. Spoon or pipe into a donut pan (silicone or lightly oiled so they don’t stick). You will get about 6 full size donuts or 10 minis.
  5. Bake for 15-17 minutes at 350F.
  6. Cool for 10 minutes. Then flip onto a cooling rack to cool completely.
  7. Dip or drizzle with glaze and sprinkle with candy canes if using. Chill for the glaze to set.
  8. Enjoy!
