Grain-Free Chocolate Doughnuts

These doughnuts are delicious, healthy AND kid approved. I recently took them to a family gathering and had lots of little, sticky fingers coming back for seconds, thirds and (had I allowed) more! This recipe is created with minimal ingredients, it’s grain-free, dairy-free and packed with chocolatey goodness!  

My niece and I enjoyed them for breakfast without any guilt because they’re packed with healthy fats to nourish us and keep us full all morning. I’ve been working on a few different recipes but I especially love the chocolate one because, well,  chocolate is heavenly! 

If you don’t have a doughnut base, I highly recommend getting one. I’m sure this recipe could be made into muffins but there’s something special about eating goodies in the shape of a doughnut. Click here to find the doughnut tray that I use.
