I love chocolate!  I mean, I really love chocolate! One of the best things about chocolate, other than the addictive taste, of course, is that it is loaded with antioxidants.  It also packs a healthy punch of magnesium.

What is better than plain chocolate?  Chocolate donuts, of course!  These donuts have rich chocolate flavor and a spongy texture. I love having some in the fridge for a grab-and-go breakfast or snack. Because these donuts travel well, I almost always make them before I go on a road trip. It’s hard to find low-carb snacks on the road, so I pile these in a tin and take them along in a cooler. 

When I’m at home, I love slathering these donuts with my Low-Carb Hot Fudge Sauce as shown in our photos. Chocolate on chocolate–what a treat! Another option for a topping is my Orange Scented Low-Carb Glaze. This glaze is a dairy-free/Paleo option.

One thing that kept me from making donuts for so long is that they require a special pan. I hesitated to purchase donut pans, partly because I thought the donuts would seem fake-like a cupcake masquerading as a donut.  I also have limited storage in my kitchen, so I like everything in my kitchen to have more than one purpose.  Donut pans, well, they are only good for making donuts.  Finally, an intense longing for chocolate donuts changed my mind and I purchased a two pack of these pans.

I don’t regret the purchase one bit.  The donuts look beautiful on both sides-like a, well, a donut. The donut pans found a home among my versatile cookie sheets and I find I use them frequently. Since I developed this recipe, I make these donuts at least once a week.  They are fast, easy and tasty–perfect for even weekday mornings!  Who knows, maybe I’ll find an additional use for the donut pans.  Bagels, anyone?

Recipe Notes

Adding the melted coconut oil and combining it before the cold wet ingredients helps prevent it from becoming a solid mass in the batter.
