Believe it or not, I like to watch my carbs. Although I absolutely love baking and all kinds of desserts, I actually only eat them on special occasions. Or at least I do try very hard to not eat my beloved goodies too often.
But sometimes a girl just needs something sweet! Enter these Low Carb Chocolate Frosted Donuts. Completely sugar free and also grain free. They aren't as delicious as the real thing but when you are trying to diet and watch your carbs, these Low Carb Chocolate Frosted Donuts can REALLY HIT THE SPOT! These Low Carb Donuts totally satisfy my donut craving which is a very good thing.
How to Make Low Carb Chocolate Donuts
Making this recipe is super simple. All you need is one bowl and two donut pans. Here are the step-by-step instructions…
1) In a large bowl, mix all the donut ingredients (see recipe below for details).
2) Scoop batter into greased donut pans and bake.
3) Let cool, then prepare the chocolate glaze.
4) Melt chocolate chips and dip cooled donuts.
5) Add sprinkles, if desired.
I used stevia sweetened chocolate chips (melted) to frost my cooled donuts. Lily's Chocolate Chips are my favorite. Only 25 calories for 30 chocolate chips. And they taste so good!
Chocolate is very important to me.
I can't live without my Lily's chocolate chips. And this isn't an ad by the way. You can usually find them at your local health food store like Whole Foods, Earth Fare or Sprouts. Or you can get them online.
Then add sprinkles for color. No, they're not sugar free but so pretty! If you want them to be strictly sugar free, don't add them.
I hope you will try my Low Carb Chocolate Frosted Donuts. They're also gluten free and dairy free for anyone that has food allergies.
If you want to add a little extra sweetness, you could make them with real chocolate chips sweetened with sugar.
