How This Nourishes Your Body

My husband has been on a huge donut kick lately. In an effort to reduce the amount of fried substances going in his body, I have been experimenting with donut recipes.

This recipe is not a typical crispy donut, more like a donut cake, but still delicious.

The recipe is very similar to this brownie recipe I have. (they both use avocado to make it fudgy)

These donuts are full of antioxidants, fiber, and healing fat so you can fully enjoy every single bite.

Notes for Paleo Chocolate Donuts

  • You can use any nut butter or you like (almond, peanut, sunflower, tahini)
  • This tastes best with a chocolate sauce on top: I really like to melt a mint dark chocolate bar with a teaspoon of coconut oil on low and then drizzle on each donut after baking.
  • You could also melt some coconut butter.
  • Top with bee pollen (not tasty but pretty;), berries, or nuts
  • Another chocolate drizzle option:
    • 1/3 cup clean chocolate chips
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons coconut oil

    I don’t have a donut pan, so could I just bake these as muffins?
