Keto and Paleo Option

Chocolate Frosting

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 175C/350F. Coat a 12-count donut pan with cooking spray and set aside. 
  • In a large mixing bowl, sift your flour into it. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix until a thick dough remains. 
  • Spoon out dough amongst the donut pan. Lightly wet your hands and shape into the donut cavities. Do not overfill. 
  • Bake for 12-17 minutes, or until just done, and a skewer comes out just clean. Allow to cool in the pan for 5 minutes, before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Once cool, dip the donuts in the melted chocolate. 

For the keto and paleo option

  • Preheat the oven to 175C/350F. Coat a 12-count donut pan with cooking spray and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add your blanched almond flour and sweetener of choice and mix well. Set aside. 
  • In a seperate mixing bowl, add the rest of your ingredients and mix until combined. Add to your dry ingredients and mix until combined. 
  • Divide the mixture amongst the donut pan, and fill each cavity until 2/3 full. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean. 
  • Allow cooling in the donut pan for 5 minutes, before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Once set, dip in the melted chocolate. 

For the chocolate frosting

  • In a large mixing bowl, add your chocolate chips of choice. 
  • In a microwave-safe bowl or small saucepan, heat your coconut cream until warm. 
  • Pour your coconut milk over the chocolate chips. Mix slowly, so the chocolate melts nicely into it.
