Recipe: Paleo Coconut Chocolate Donuts

Paleo Donut WEB

I brought these homemade chocolate coconut donuts to craft night for my girlfriends and they were a hit! Not a single crumb was left by the end of the night. With all the food allergies and restrictions amongst my circle of friends, it’s tough coming up with a dessert that everyone can enjoy. I experimented with some healthier ingredients that I had on hand and these paleo, gluten free donuts were born! I saved a couple for my kiddos and they loved them too! Hooray for a healthier donut option that still tastes yummy!

Homemade donuts sound like a lot of work, but they are super easy to make! You’ll need a donut pan for this recipe and after you make this recipe, you’ll be glad that you have one so you can make more! You can find donut pans in the baking section of many stores. Some stores only sell them around the holidays, so call ahead to see if they have them in stock or buy one online. It might save you a few trips (or so I’ve learned). Make sure to tag me on Facebook and Instagram so I can see your donut creations!
