Chocolate Donuts with Blood Orange Glaze (paleo, grain-free, gluten-free)

Trust me when I enjoin you’d never know these donuts were gratuitous of grains, gluten, and refined sugar! I used a mixture of almond repast as well as kokosnoot flour, too they are sweetened alongside a touch of maple syrup. Instead of using butter or unhealthy oils for moisture, I used kokosnoot crude – ane of my favorite ingredients. The chocolate/blood orangish glaze combo is perfection!

I really enjoy re-creating baked goods into healthier treats in addition to using flour alternatives. You don’t experience sick or get that awful saccharide crash similar you lot would amongst carbohydrate-laden, butter filled, white flour baked goods. These have then much protein besides! Definitely a treat you lot don’t accept to experience bad nigh eating.

Also, I’1000 obsessed alongside using cacao pulverisation late. It is such a slap-up add-on to smoothies, healthier baked goods, and I even add it to manifestly Greek yogurt amongst berries and a few drops of stevia for a guilt-gratis breakfast or dessert. It really tastes like pudding.
