Low Carb Keto Powdered Chocolate Mini Donuts
Even though I'm on a low carb diet, I end up buying a lot of normal people food for everybody else in my family.
Usually I don't mind, but lately I've been really tempted by their donuts. Those sugary rings of glazed deliciousness.
Luckily for me, the low carb world offers some tasty sugar free alternatives.
Today's recipe is adapted from an old standby of mine, a chocolate donut recipe that I found on Simply So Healthy. It's got a simple, no nonsense cocoa and almond flour batter and I've coated the outside with powdered sweetener. (I used Confectioner's Powdered Swerve, but you can turn any sweetener into powder by blending it in the blender for a minute or two.) The result is a chocolate donut that is low carb, grain free, sugar free and gluten free. It's also tasty as all get out.
These little donuts give normal people food a real run for its money.
