These paleo chocolate donuts with coconut vanilla bean icing are baked for a healthy and delicious grain and gluten free treat.
So, I got a donut pan. And let me just preface the rest of this post by saying yes, I do realize it is actually “doughnut” and no, I don’t care that I’m spelling it wrong. Yes, you may call me lazy.
It’s kind of funny because I’d seriously been looking for one for over a year, desperate to make donuts in my oven like the rest of the world and then when I find it and actually bake in it, I realize it’s kind of over-hyped. Hate when that happens.
Don’t get me wrong, these are good. But they’re basically cake in donut form. Donuts should be fried, not baked. So when you fill a mold with batter, stick it in your oven and expect anything remotely resembling Dunkin, you might be slightly disappointed. Sorry to burst anyone’s bubble on that, just keeping it real.
However, I happen to like cake. Chocolate cake with coconut butter vanilla bean icing is even better. So if it happens to be in the shape of a donut, I’m not gonna complain.
They might not stop me from the occasional munchkin order, but they’re fun nonetheless.
