My donut recipe is pretty versatile. This morning, I opted for a chocolate version. So delish, if I do say so myself. I simple added some cocoa powder to the batter, and used chocolate flavored stevia for part of the sweetener. To make them extra rich, I used some real unsweetened chocolate for the glaze. Oh my.
The recipe for the plain coconut flour gems is in the March newsletter. Here is the chocolate version for when the mood hits.

Sorry my sweetener measurements are so vague today. I didn't think I would be blogging these this morning since I have been having trouble getting my donut pan to release the goodies lately. Baker's Joy to the rescue, and all but one released today with just a little persuasion on my end. Sweetener measurements and preferences are such a personal thing anyway. It is hard to know how much everyone else prefers. My advice is just to be brave and taste the batter. I knew I wanted the chocolate donuts sweeter than the plain ones, so I just tasted as I went. I don't feel too bad when I see Chef Ramsey doing that too.
If you aren't having a great day, these will make you feel better.
