Sooooo – I might be a tiny bit obsessed with making donuts lately – I have another paleo donut coming your way as well.  But I got a new donut baking pan, and HAD to use it.  (Not to mention I needed to get rid of the chocolate in my house in prep for the clean eating challenge I’m doing with my clients).  Heheheee!  I’ve been using regular chocolate chips – not sure if that’s paleo, but I’m sure there are some paleo friendly chocolate chips out there if the real deals aren’t on the paleo menu.  I topped these little lovers off with coconut and chocolate sprinkles (also prob aren’t paleo), but that’s where you could really have fun with it. Think – coconut, nuts, or just leave it plain!   I got this recipe off of Tasty Kitchen.  Great with a cup of coffee, for kids, or a clean cheat!!

Ingredients

  • ½ cups Coconut Oil
  • ½ cups Raw Honey
  • 6 whole Eggs
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • ¾ cups Coconut Flour
  • ¾ teaspoons Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • chocolate chips (optional)
  • FOR THE TOPPING:
  • ½ cups Chocolate Chips
  • 1 Tablespoon Coconut Oil

Preparation:

Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Melt the coconut oil in the microwave for a few seconds until liquid form. Heat the honey in the microwave for 20 seconds until it’s in liquid form.

Blend the eggs and honey together in a blender. Add the melted coconut oil and vanilla extract.

Sift the coconut flour, baking soda and salt into the egg mixture and mix until well blended.  Hand mix in the chocolate chips if you’re adding those in.

Using a dessert spoon, spoon the batter into the circles of a well-greased donut pan. (I used 2 6-circle donut pans.) Bake for 15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Once cooled, remove donuts from the donut pan.

For the topping, melt the chocolate chips and coconut oil together. Dip each donut into the chocolate and set onto a tray lined with parchment paper. Place donuts into the fridge for the chocolate to harden. Enjoy!
