Pre-heat donut maker until green light comes on (or until ready).
In a mixing bowl, combine the first 10 ingredients until blended.
Fill the bottom half of the doughnut maker until level. Lower top half and cook for approximately 3-4 minutes until firm and slightly browned. Let cool on a cooling rack. Continue to cook until batter is gone. It makes about 20 mini doughnuts.
While the doughnuts are cooling, heat chocolate in a double boiler on low until melted.
Dip the tops of the doughnuts in the chocolate. (OPTIONAL: Next, dip in the crushed walnuts or coconut flakes). Place back on the cooling rack. Repeat.
