Keto Chocolate Donuts
So very delicious and healthy, these mini low carb and keto-friendly chocolate donuts are just a perfect treat for all chocolate lovers. Moreover, they are infused with healthy nutrients from the zucchini, nuts, and all the healthy fats. However, alongside being healthy, these donuts are smooth, creamy and a real treat.
Generally, spaghetti squash is used to cook this recipe. But, you can very well utilize zucchini if that is your preference. Most importantly, ensure the veggie is cooked. And, also, that most of the water is removed, using a cheesecloth, or kitchen towel. This extra step will ensure optimal texture for this dish!
Meanwhile, we used full-fat coconut milk (coconut cream). But, you can use heavy cream, or full-fat almond milk instead.
Also, the topping is made with no-added sugar dark chocolate melted with a little bit of coconut milk. Though, you can change that using coconut oil instead of coconut milk. Also, you can add some nut butter as well.
Finally, we topped it with chopped almonds. Instead, you can play around with it and use coconut flakes, or walnuts, for instance. Likewise, there is no limit to making these sugar-free donuts even more delicious and fun! Let’s Ketofy it!
