3-Ingredient Chocolate Crunch Doughnuts (Vegan)

3-Ingredient Chocolate Crunch Doughnuts (Vegan)

A chocolaty, crunchy treat that’s simple, quick to make and only calls for 3 ingredients! It really doesn’t get easier than this.

I used 70% dairy-free dark chocolate, but it will work with any chocolate you prefer. I also used protein crispies, but rice crispies or quinoa pops will work just as well. 

3-Ingredient Chocolate Crunch Doughnuts (Vegan & Gluten-free)

I thought it would be a fun idea to shape them into doughnuts by using silicon doughnut moulds (these are the ones I use) They’re so much more fun than plain old boring bars, don’t you think? ;P

If you remake this recipe and post it on social media, make sure you take me using the below handles so I can see them! 

Look forward to seeing your beautiful recreations πŸ˜€ 


3-Ingredient Chocolate Crunch Doughnuts (Vegan)

Makes – 6

Ingredients

200g dairy-free dark chocolate
2 tbsp almond butter – any nut butter will work, or you can use a seed butter/coconut oil for a nut-free version
1 cup protein crispiesrice crispies or quinoa pops

Method

Break up the chocolate into a heatproof bowl, then add in the almond butter. You can either melt it in the microwave, stirring every minute or so, or you can place it on top of a small pan of simmering water until it has completely melted.
Add the crispies into the bowl and fold to combine.
Divide the mixture between 6 doughnut rings. Place in the fridge for 1-2 hours or until the chocolate has set. 
Enjoy! 
Store in an air-tight container in the fridge. You can freeze any leftovers.

  1. What a cute little candy recipe! Perfect for those little chocolate hankerings where you also need a good crunch! Rice krispies used to be one of my favorite cereals too. I want to try making this with puffed quinoa or puffed millet too!

    2. Seriously? Have you ever heard of a recipe that calls for the food to be frozen for days before it becomes edible? Have you never eaten Rice Krispies, chocolate or peanut butter without having frozen them for days beforehand? Use a little common sense.

        Hey Nicola πŸ™‚ It’s ok that she asked the question. I’m always asking questions that some may consider obvious, that’s how I learn. She might be a beginner and not know much about food preparation. It’s all good πŸ™‚

  2. Looks yummy πŸ˜€ Will try making these – there are 2 coeliacs in my family, so i’m usually hunting for gluten-free recipes so that they can try anything I make πŸ™‚

  3. I used the puffed quinoa and its amazing. I used more peanut butter and less chocolate for higher protein πŸ‘Š

      You can use different moulds or you can set the mixture in a cake pan and slice them into bars. You might need to double the recipe depending on the size of the pan. Hope that answers your question.

  4. These look very good. Where did you get your protein crispies from? I have not been able to find them anywhere!

    1. I bought the puffed quinoa in the Bulk Barn but decided not to use it as it is not crunchy.; more like puffed wheat. Better to use rice crispies or even crunchy corn flake cereal.

  5. What other molds can I make these in? I want to make smaller versions for a bake sale. Maybe I can try using an ice cube tray? Any other suggestions?

      Any moulds should work including ice trays. Although I would suggest silicon moulds as they’re easier to remove the chocolates from.

  6. These look amazing, thank you so much for sharing such a simple, low sugar, vegan, GF sweet treat. It checks off all the boxes. I love it. And they’re so cute too.
    xoxo

  7. I’m always amazed by how creative you are with your recipes! These look like the perfect moreish treat. Can’t wait to give them a go πŸ™‚

  8. Sounds great!

    I am in Ontario and it’s very difficult to find dairy free chocolate.
    What brand did you use?
    Thx

  9. Just found this recipe, sounds delicious. On problem, major nut allergies in this house, what do you suggest as a substitute? Thanks.

    2. Try using a seed butter. Sunflower seed butter or make you own with any seed you like with a food processor or high speed blender. Just think of something you would like with the chocolate.

  10. I agree with coconut oil base instead of the nut butter. What is a better alternative for the sweetness? Agave? Honey?

  11. I don’t have doughnut rings so I used a small cake pan and it turned out great! It was so nice to be able to have a good tasting treat for my 2 grandkids who are celiac. Thanks for sharing.

  12. I used to make my own chocolate crispies but I would add raisins to mine, sometimes walnuts or pecans. I use Lindt 90% and add stevia for sweetening a bit.

  13. I am interested in using shaped ice cube trays to make these. They are silicone. Do I need to coat them with a spray or will they easily come out of th molds? Are the protein crispies found at places like Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods? I can’t wait to try these for our next get together. Thanks.

      If you’re using silicon moulds you don’t need to oil them. I got my crispies from the UK, so not sure if they would have them available in different countries. Rice crispies or puffed quinoa will work just as well πŸ™‚

  14. Now from a non-healthy prospective – Can you use chocolate melts and would a cup of them do (metric impaired). Or how about just choc chips?

  15. Pleas edit your ingredient list to specify gluten-free Rice Krispies as Rice Krispies is not GF unless you buy that version of them. Thanks.

  16. I see some of us are not able to understand simple english ….if it say – “you can freeze any leftover”,it means exactly “leftovers”. I’m sure there won’t be any, it looks to good. I’m making them right now.
    Nadia,thanks for easy ,delish recipe.
    Yum…

  17. Rudeness isn’t necessary.
    It was a simple question they didn’t know the answers to.You didn’t have to put it out there as if you are a know it all.

  18. im eating ketogenic diet and these look so temting..im thinking of using chopped almonds instead of the crispies, or some keto granola mix as i can’t eat grains…

  19. Amen Tina, I saw couple rude comments on here and was very surprised. It’s a recipe…..Relax. Everyone interprets differently & some may be newbie cooks. So unless you’re perfect you should not be casting a stone.
    Have a great day and these do look delicious!

  20. People of all levels of education comment here. I, too, could have asked something such as that because I like to know the answers! Helps me to learn more and I am educated.
    It’s always OK to ask questions Sara, please don’t let people try to tell you otherwise. Have a blessed day!

  21. Hello Nadia,
    My sister’s name is Nadia also. I never saw puffed quinoa. How can I do that at home.?? It’s a great treat. I make my own chocolate at home so I will melt in
    something at that stage.
    Thank you,
    Sybil

      Hi Sybil πŸ™‚ I bought the quinoa pops from a local health food shop, but you should be able to buy it online depending on where you live.

  22. Well, now Everyone take a look at Nicola’s August 21, 2018 comment…..
    Now I say to Nadia’s Fans: “thanks to Nicola (and a few others here that have been called out) there is no longer a need to wonder. . . . . CHILD Bullies DO grow up to be adult BULLIES.”

    pssst: spread the word !
