If you told me five years ago that I would be making my own doughnuts at home, I wouldn’t have believed you. Then one day I got brave and bought a doughnut pan, and it sat on my counter for a while and then stored with the rest of my baking sheets and I never quite worked up the courage to try. Seems like a silly thing to be to be afraid of… but I’m not exactly the world’s best baker, that’s for sure. But these Coconut Cream Pie Doughnuts tell a different story and I am so excited to share the recipe with you!
Now while these probably aren’t like the doughnuts you’re used to from your local bakery, they are quite easy to make and a lot healthier, especially with the special topping I used, Dang Foods Coconut Chips! They were the perfect garnish to really push these doughnuts into deliciousness.
I’ve had Dang Foods coconut chips prior to using them in this recipe, they are such a great snack. They are made from Non-GMO toasted Thai coconut slices for a naturally sweet flavor. They have just as much fiber and less sugar than an apple and give you such a delightfully satisfying crunch! Dang is focused on delicious, nutritious snacks perfect for your every day snacking but also traveling. Their goal is connect cultures through food and fun!
The texture of these doughnuts is moist and the icing is light and fluffy and made with only two ingredients! No, I’m not joking! I wanted to really give it that coconutty flavor but also keep it simple and semi-healthy wink.
Now I may or may not have been snackin’ on these Dang coconut chips the whole time I was making these doughnuts because they are just so dang good!
