Debbie’s son was born with multiple food allergies. Without any ambitions of Food Network stardom, Debbie was inspired to become her son’s allergen-free Iron Chef as well as create a bakery so that children like her son, as well as those with diabetes, celiac disease and autism, could safely enjoy mouth-watering and nutritious desserts.
And guess what?! I get to give away THREE FREE Sweet Debbie cookbooks!!!! (Thank you, Debbie!)

I couldn’t wait to dive into the recipes so while the kids were at school, I made the Double Chocolate Chip Glazed-Over Donut Holes.
It took me all about 30 minutes tops to make these (and of course pop a few into my mouth!).
I got permission from Debbie to share this recipe with you.
Wanna make chocolate donut holes? Duh! I know you do!
Double Chocolate Chip Glazed-Over Donut Holes
15 x 10 sheet parchment paper
1 1/2 cups all-purpose gluten-free flour (Debbie has a recipe for this in her cookbook but used a pre-made flour I got at Whole Foods)
2 Tbsp. cacao powder
1/4 tsp. sea salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
3 Tbsp. coconut oil
1/2 cup rice milk (I used unsweetened almond milk since I had that on hand and I like a nutty flavor)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. orange extract (I SO love the taste of orange with chocolate!)
1/3 cup chocolate chips (non-dairy, gluten-free)
2 Tbsp. coconut oil
2 Tbsp. cacao powder
1 Tbsp. water
Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees F. Line pan with parchment paper.
To make the donut holes, whisk together the flour, powder, soda in a large bowl. Make a well in the middle.
Add oil, milk, and extracts. Pour into the flour mixture and stir to combine. Fold in chocolate chips.
Take 1/2 Tbsp. of dough and shape into a ball. Place the ball on the prepared pan. Repeat until you have used up all the dough, placing the balls about 2 inches apart on the pan.
Bake holes for 11-12 minutes.
Transfer the pan from the oven to wire rack to cool.
Make the glaze: Stir ingredients in a bowl.
Frost each donut hole with the glaze and place on wire rack to set.
Put in pretty paper holders then eat up!
Makes 20 donut holes
Disclosure: I ate 3 donut holes before glazing! They are gooooooood!
