Chocolate & Orange Doughnuts


Who doesn’t love doughnuts (or if you prefer, donuts!)? Maybe someday someone will be able to perfect a low-carb version of a yeast raised doughnut, but for now we have the cake variety to dine on!

Dipping these bad-boys in chocolate adds a little crunch to the super soft baked doughnut! If you can’t find a low-carb chocolate you like, check out ChocoPerfection! Click the link below for free shipping!

The only real catch to this recipe is owning a doughnut pan. If not you can always make muffins out of them! With a little less than 3 net carbs per doughnut, these are a great guilt-free treat!
