- 1 cup / 100g almond flour or ground almonds
- 40 g / 1.4 oz unsweetened chocolate melted (3 tbsp)
- 40 g / 1.4 oz butter, very soft 3 tbsp
- 3 tbsp cocoa powder unsweetened
- 4 eggs
- 1/3 cup / 55 g powdered sweetener (So Nourished)
- 4 tbsp heavy / double cream
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
For the Glaze
- 60 g / 2.1 oz unsweetened chocolate
- 8 drops stevia or 2 tsp powdered erythritol
Preheat your oven to 175 Celsius / 350 Fahrenheit
In a bowl or a food processor, blend the very soft butter, cream and sweetener. Then add the eggs and vanilla and mix until well-combined. Last, add the melted unsweetened chocolate, cocoa powder, almond flour and baking powder. Blend until you have a smooth batter.
Spoon batter into a well-greased donut pan. I used a silicone mini donut pan. Make sure you do not overfill and lose that all-important hole!
Bake 13-15 minutes or until done.
Melt the chocolate in a water-bath (place a smaller bowl with the chocolate inside a larger bowl which you have filled with boiling water. The heat will gently melt the chocolate). Add stevia to achieve the desired sweetness. Wait until it has cooled down a little.
Dip the cooled donuts into the chocolate (double-dip if you want a thicker glaze) and place in the fridge until the chocolate coating has set.
My donuts had a diameter of 6 cm and weighed around 25g each. Small and perfectly formed 🙂
The nutrition is calculated per donut.
The kind of chocolate you use will impact on the amount of sweetener you need.
NOTE: The glaze hardens fully. If you’re after a softer glaze, add 1 tbsp double/heavy cream.
