Paleo Chocolate Donuts [VIDEO]

When I hosted a brunch with these Paleo Chocolate Donuts on the table, this first comment made was “are they fried?” No, no my friends. These are clean, healthy, and baked… oh, and beyond delicious. Just little chocolate cake in the form of donuts. What’s better than that?

  1. These donuts are absolutely amazing!!! I made them for my son for his birthday. He is gluten and dairy free and these are so much better than I could buy for him. We will be saving this recipe and making them again!

  2. Lexi once again hits it out of the ballpark! I wanted to surprise hubby with a non egg breakfast. These donuts are cooling in the frig right now after I drizzled the chocolate and I cannot wait to have a whole one. The only donut pan I could find locally only makes 6, so with the overflow I was able to taste the donut holes? I had to sub sour cream for the applesauce, but these are still so yummy!!
