Dark Chocolate Frosted Donuts {GF, Paleo, Nut Free}

I love a good donut. I also love dark chocolate and crave it from time to time. So I thought, why not combine the two and make some delicious dark chocolate donuts to satisfy my cravings and please all the other people in my house who love baked goods. It’s a cold day today, so cranking up my oven and baking is always something I enjoy doing to warm our bellies and our home. It’s a win-win.

Ingredients for the donuts:

For the glaze:

Preheat oven to 350⁰. Mix together dry ingredients in KitchenAid stand mixer or with a hand-held mixer. In a separate bowl, combine wet ingredients. Pour wet into dry and incorporate until all ingredients are fully blended. Pour batter into two greased (with coconut oil or butter) donut pans. Bake 18-20 minutes (or until toothpick comes out clean). Transfer to wire cooking rack. While donuts cool, prepare glaze on the stovetop in a pan by stirring all ingredients and melting down until smooth. Spoon over glaze and sprinkle with desired toppings and enjoy!

This recipe makes 12 donuts – you could easily double it for a crowd. Donuts should keep for a few days in the fridge, but I doubt you’ll have any left!
