Chocolate Frosted Donuts (Refined Sugar-Free)

These Chocolate Frosted Donuts perfectly sweet, frosted and refined sugar free! Almost, cakelike, they make the perfect dessert or morning snack.

Refined Sugar-Free Chocolate Donuts

Who doesn’t love donuts? I’ll admit these took me a couple tries to get the recipe just right but in the end they turned out perfect. They are super decadent and rich (brownie like) and I’m sure you’re going to love.

These are sweetened with coconut sugar and maple syrup instead of regular white sugar, adding the right amount of sweetness but with a little less guilt. The frosting is just coconut oil and dairy-free chocolate chips, I could honestly just eat this!

These are the perfect mid-morning snack to pair with coffee or as a sweet after dinner treat.

What if I don’t have a donut pan?

You can definitely use a muffin tin in place of a donut pan, it will taste the same. These are the pans I use, comes in a 3 pack! I love these because nothing sticks to the pan, highly recommend silicone.

How do you store these donuts?

You can store these donuts in a food storage container in the fridge for a few days or in the freezer for a few weeks. I would store the donuts un-frosted if freezing and once thawed, frost them before eating.

What you need for this recipe

  • Whole wheat flour (can sub gluten free if needed)
  • Coconut sugar
  • Vanilla
  • Baking powder
  • Cocoa powder
  • Maple syrup
  • Eggs
  • Non-dairy milk of choice (I used coconut)

    I just launched my site –also built in wordpress like yours– but the theme slows (!) the site down quite a bit.

    In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd” on Google (would appreciate any feedback) – it’s still in the

    Keep up the good work– and hope you all take
