Low Carb chocolate donuts made with coconut flour and dipped in a sugar-free chocolate glaze.


Ingredients

    Donuts
  • 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • 1/3 cup Swerve Sweetener
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup butter melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 6 tablespoons brewed coffee or water – coffee intensifies the chocolate flavor
  • Glaze
  • 1/4 cup powdered Swerve Sweetener
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon heavy cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 to 2 tablespoon water

Directions

    Donuts
  1. Preheat the oven to 325F and grease a donut pan very well
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the coconut flour, sweetener, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Stir in the eggs, melted butter, and vanilla extract, then stir in the cold coffee or water until well combined.
  3. Divide the batter among the wells of the donut pan. If you have a six-well donut pan, you may need to work in batches.
  4. Bake 16 to 20 minutes, until the donuts are set and firm to the touch. Remove and let cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then flip out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
  5. Glaze
  6. In a medium shallow bowl, whisk together the powdered sweetener and cocoa powder. Add the heavy cream and vanilla and whisk to combine.
  7. Add enough water until the glaze thins out and is a “dippable” consistency, without being too watery.
  8. Dip the top of each donut into the glaze and let set about 30 minutes.
