Healthy Chocolate Doughnuts

Have your cake and eat it too with this healthier dessert alternative.

I am scheduling this weeks blog post on Good Friday this year so you can have a day or two to whip these doughnuts as a healthy dessert for Easter if you celebrate this Holiday. This recipe is in my cookbook but we like to decorate them up for Holidays and wanted to share this with all of you. I know not everyone celebrates Easter but I do know most people love a healthy chocolate recipe, so either way - enjoy!

If you do not have a doughnut pan we ordered our on Amazon and it came in really quick. Seriously what did we do before Amazon??

This recipe is great for a dessert or fun breakfast. There is no flour, butter, or refined sugar there are only real food ingredients that nourish. As a mom of 3 these are the kinds of desserts I feel great about serving up.
