Gluten-Free Chocolate Donut Holes that are rich, chocolaty, and perfectly tender. You may never go back to store bought donuts again.
I was sitting at work watching the weather report and trying to figure out how I was going to get to the store and get home before the freezing rain hit. I needed groceries for my family as our cupboards were looking quite bare.
One of my coworkers said he was stopping by Fred Meyer on his way home. Have you ever been to the store right before a storm hits? It’s chaos, and I told him that.
He said that he had already ordered his groceries through Click List and was going to swing by and pick them up. I had never heard of Click List, but I quickly searched for it and signed up so I could order my groceries.
Creating an account and signing up was easy. In less than 5 minutes I was searching for my groceries and selecting which items to add to my shopping cart.
I ordered groceries for dinner that night, and added a few ingredients for breakfast so I could make these Gluten-Free Chocolate Donut Holes for my girls.
I was able to choose which location I wanted to pick up from, and the day and time.
I loved it so much that I ended up going in the next day and ordering more groceries for the remainder of the week. I received a confirmation via email and I also received a email reminder day of.
When I pulled into Fred Meyer to pick up my Click List order, there was a sign above designated parking spaces and a number to call. A nice man named Matt came straight out and took my name down.
He had hand picked all my groceries that morning and let me know that he found everything on my list.
He came out a few moments later with my groceries, loaded my car, swiped my Credit Card, and I was on my way. It was the easiest grocery service I have ever used and now I am hooked.
And of course my kids loved it because I was able to make them fresh, fried, Gluten-Free Chocolate Donut Holes for breakfast the next morning. These donut holes aren’t greasy, or soggy.
They are tender like cake and perfectly chocolatey. The recipe makes 24 donut holes, enough for sharing or freezing.
Now every time I tell my kids I don’t have ingredients to make fresh donuts they tell me to order them from Fred Meyer through Click List. It’s hard to argue with that because the service is so easy.
I hope you give Click List and these Gluten-Free Chocolate Donut Holes a try. They are both simple and take no time at all.
For the donut holes:
- 1 ¼ cups all-purpose gluten-free flour (I used Bob’s Red Mill 1-to-1)
- ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder (I used Rodelle)
- 1 teaspoon gluten-free baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- ½ cup sour cream**
- 1 large egg, room temperature
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoons vanilla extract (I used Rodelle)
- vegetable oil for frying
For the glaze:
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- ¼ cup milk**
- **use vegan sour cream and dairy-free milk to make these dairy-free
- In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
- In a separate small mixing bowl, whisk together sugar, sour cream, egg, oil, and vanilla extract. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, stir with a spoon until combined. Dough will be thick and sticky. Line a baking sheet with wax or parchment paper, and with cocoa-floured hands, roll dough into balls 11/2 to 2-inches in thickness.
- Add vegetable oil to a large pot or saucepan over medium heat. Once it reaches 325 degrees F, carefully drop donut holes into the hot oil a few at a time. Fry for 2-3 minutes, flipping them over for even cooking. Remove with a slotted spoon to the paper towel. Repeat until all donut holes are fried.
- Combine powdered sugar and milk in a bowl and whisk well. Microwave for 20 seconds then whish again, to help break up the lumps.
- Dip each donut hole into the glaze and turn to coat. Let the donut holes dry on a wire rack.
- Store donut holes in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days, or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
