Instructions
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350°F, gas mark 4, 180°C (160°C fan-assisted).
  2. To make the flaxseed egg (vegan egg replacement), in a small mixing bowl add 2 tbsp. milled flaxseed together with 6 tbsp. water, mix together and then leave to set in the fridge for 15 minutes.
  3. Pour the 240ml water in a large mixing bowl then add the rapeseed oil, agave nectar and vanilla bean paste.
  4. Combine the two flours in a separate bowl together with the cacao powder, sea salt and baking powder.
  5. Once the flaxseed egg has set, remove from the fridge, add to the wet mixture in the large mixing bowl, then sieve in the flour mixture and the gently fold in until the mixture is smooth.
  6. Pour the mixture into a piping bag and pipe evenly into the donut trays (about ¾ full) and bake in the pre-heated oven for 20 minutes.
  7. To make the chocolate sauce, in a mixing bowl dissolve the cacao powder with the boiling water mix until all the powder has dissolved then add the agave or maple syrup and stir until smooth. Then add the peanut butter sea salt and mix together until thoroughly combined and smooth.
  8. Once the donuts have baked, take them out of the oven, loosen lightly around the edge, leave to cool. When cooled gently remove them from the donut tray and place them on a cooling rack to cool. Cover the tops of the donuts with the chocolate peanut butter sauce and top with chopped peanuts. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

Lisa's tip - Flaxseed as an egg substitute is perfect for those who follow a vegan lifestyle so you can achieve baked good without eggs. It brings the mixture together as an egg would do. Suitable for anyone following a strict vegan diet but still enjoys a baked donut. These donuts are great for anyone who has intolerance to eggs. Although if you do not require these donuts to be vegan you can swap the flax egg for 2 eggs. If you prefer you can also switch the peanut butter for cashew or almond butter, or sesame butter if you have a allergy to nuts.
