In the words of Homer Simpson, “mmmmmm…. Donuts.”

These donuts were definitely pretty awesome. Like most coconut flour recipes, the texture has the viscosity you look for in a cake donut, but a bit more dense. This recipe was easy to put together and will make for a nice breakfAst or snack.

4. 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.

5. 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!
