Chocolate Iced Coconut Donuts - Low Carb & Gluten Free

Lately, I’ve been eating a lot of chicken and salads which is pretty boring. My husband got a gift card to Dunkin Donuts from one of his clients. He doesn’t drink coffee so he is saving it to buy donuts for him and the kids. He knows I rarely eat sugar loaded donuts. The gift card has been sitting on the kitchen counter since Christmas and it has led to a donut craving. My favorite donuts are the Krispy Kreme chocolate iced cream and I need to work on how to get that luscious sweet cream filling in a low carb version. Eventually, I’ll figure out a good low carb alternative to those cream filled donuts.

Since I have a donut pan, I just needed to make up a cake batter to bake in the molds. Coconut flour does a good job with cakes so I figured I’d use coconut flour. This got me thinking about a coconut donut so I threw some unsweetened dried coconut flakes into the batter. The resulting donuts weren’t very attractive so I whipped up some chocolate frosting to spread on top. Still not satisfied with how they looked, I lightly toasted an additional tablespoon of shredded coconut to sprinkle on top. The result? Perfectly delicious!
