Step 1

Directions for Donuts:
Preheat oven to 425 degrees and spray donut pan with cooking spray.
If using a flax egg, prepare by using 1 TB of ground flax + 3 TB of hot water. Mix and set aside for approximately 8-10 minutes until "gel like".
In your food processor, with the dough/ mixing blade, combine all the above listed ingredients. Including your flax egg, once it reaches the correct consistency.
Mix until smooth and there are no lumps.
Pour batter into your donut pan, filling each 1/2 way full.
Bake for 9-10 minutes, until spring-like to touch and a toothpick comes out clean. If making donut muffins, see notes in post above regarding baking times.
Remove from oven. Remove donuts from pan and let cool on a wire cooling rack.

Directions for Glaze:
Make glaze for the donuts once they have completely cooled.
In a medium size bowl, melt chocolate chips in the microwave by heating for approximately two minutes.
Add coconut oil and peppermint extract to the bowl and stir until it reaches a smooth and glossy consistency.
Dip each donut into the bowl and repeat until all are finished.
See notes in post above: By freezing the donuts after glazing for approximately 10 minutes, this will allow the glaze to harden around the donut and created a nice iced coating.
