Everyone loves a good doughnut, and these most certainly made the cut. It was a Friday night, and by some miracle, both the kids and baby had fallen asleep early. Most of the time I quickly follow their lead, however, this night in particular I was itching to get in the kitchen and use some creativity. Initially, I wanted to make mini chocolate chip muffins. However, after realizing my mini muffin tin mysteriously disappeared, I decided to reach for the doughnut pan instead. In about 10 minutes flat I had whipped up an amazing chocolate, chocolate chip doughnut recipe, frosting and all. I was quite impressed, if I don’t say so myself, but I knew the real test would be by my husband and kids. That being said, I am here to tell you that if you think being on a low-carb diet means that you have to miss out on decadent chocolate-y goodness. Well, you’re wrong. These doughnuts are so good, by the time I went to take pictures just two days later, there were only 2 left. Overall, if you’re craving some chocolate, but tired of brownies (not that that is even POSSIBLE!), change it up and make these doughnuts. You’ll be quite happy you did.
