  2. In a large bowl, mix the dry donut ingredients together. Stir in the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Fill greased donut pan circles about ⅔½ of the way full with batter. Bake for about 20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  3. Meanwhile make the frosting by placing all the ingredients in a medium shallow bowl and stir well to combine. Taste and adjust sweetness to your liking.
  4. Dip cooled donuts into the frosting and place on a piece of parchment to chill.
  5. To make the chocolate drizzle, place the ingredients for the chocolate drizzle in a small bowl and stir well to combine. Drizzle donuts with chocolate drizzle if desired.

Tip!

You can substitute the ½ cup of coconut flour with 2 cups blanched almond flour. If you use almond flour, use 2 eggs instead of the default 6 eggs.

    This recipe makes 8 servings, so if you made 8 donuts then yes, a serving is 1 donut.

    Used the almond flour variation...donuts taste great! They even have a crumb! I was able to get 10 donuts/servings using a silicon mold. I also had some extra buttercream frosting left over...easily saved for another treat.
