Healthy chocolate donuts did you say? Yes I did! These low-carb dark chocolate donuts (aka doughnuts here in Britain) are baked rather than fried and use a low-carb sweetener instead of sugar to keep your blood sugar levels more stable.
You can so totally have your cake and eat it now #ketofams! All the taste of a good chocolate treat but keto-friendly.
I topped mine with cacao nibs, simply because i’m a bit of a cacao addict, but you can leave off and eat just with the dark chocolate drizzle or sprinkle with your favourite toasted chopped nuts or coconut.

Ingredients (makes 6 donuts)
- Preheat the oven to 175 °C/ 350 °F (conventional), or 155 °C/ 310 °F (fan assisted). Crack the eggs in a bowl and add melted butter or ghee.
- Beat the eggs and butter together using an electric whisk.
- Add all the remaining ingredients.
- Process until smooth.
- Generously grease a non-stick donut pan with a little oil or butter. Transfer the dough to a piping bag, or use a spoon and add to your donut pan.
- Bake for 12 – 15 minutes or until you can insert and remove a toothpick without any crumbs stick-ing.
- Meanwhile, break the chocolate into chunks and place in a glass bowl over a pan of boiling water. Turn the heat on the stove to medium and allow the chocolate to melt, stirring occasionally.
- When the donuts are cooked, allow to cool and dip half in melted chocolate, either on the side or on top.
- Optionally, top with cacao nibs, chopped nuts, cocoanut flakes or shredded coconut.
- Place in the fridge to set for 10 minutes or on a wire rack in the kitchen for 30 minutes.
Store in a sealed Tupperware for 4 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
