Grain free chocolate donuts that taste amazing? It's not weird, it's time to eat some donuts! These taste JUST like the cake donuts from the donut store!
I LOVE the questions that I get asked and love to try to find answers to them. There is one question I haven't been able to answer to date.
What about a good grain free dessert?
That usually involves almond flour. At least a majority of the recipes that I find that are grain free involve almond flour or some combination of that. But the problem was that the almond flour you use and I use can vary. While blanched almond flour is great to use, the blanched almond flour I use seems pretty gritty when I use it in recipes. It likes to linger in your mouth after you eat. For hours.
Which made it a dessert flour I just didn't like to use much. Until now. I came across the most incredible grain free chocolate donut recipe and ended up making it for several kids in my neighborhood that frequent our house and have gluten allergies. I paired this particular donut recipe with our Chocolate Glaze That Hardens and it was delicious! (You can TOTALLY use the healthier glaze I used here, but for the taste of the double chocolate cake donut you find at the donut stores, you will want to use the glaze above.
Don't have a donut pan? Use a mini muffin pan to make donut holes. They taste just as good and you get to glaze the whole donut--double the frosting!
