Recipe: Tangy Double Chocolate Donuts

gf chocolate donuts 1

I’ll be honest with you, any time I bring baked goods to a get-together, I get a bit nervous. You see, I don’t bake like the average person. I use a lot of alternative ingredients that are foreign to those who don’t dabble in clean eating from time to time.

When I taste test my recipes, I go off of what I like and what tastes good to me. The only issue is I’ve been using alternative ingredients so long that they are the norm and regular flour and sugar are not. Because of this, I know my viewpoint of what tastes good is somewhat skewed from the average person. So bringing baked goods to get-togethers has me feeling a little trepidatious, because often my desserts are less sweet and more dense than normal baked goods.

But regardless of what others may think about the taste or composition, this little 20-month-old loved the donuts, and kept saying “mo mo” (intepreted: more more). And of course, I obliged, because he’s obviously undernourished 🙂
