Sugar Free Baked Cocoa Doughnut Holes


Sometimes, I get a bit jealous of people who talk donuts all the time.
They post pictures of their doughnut porn on instagram and facebook and go on to let the rest of us know just how yummy their sugar-laden treat was. Both servings.

So, I went on a quest to figure out a way that I too could enjoy a doughnut and, without all of the sugar that would spike my blood sugar and leave me in a deep guilt.

Sugar Free Baked Cocoa Doughnut Holes

I love that these can be made low carb and with out without a 'glaze'.

I use a lowcarb flour sometimes for this-Carbalose Flour. You can use this or a regular all purpose flour.

Instead of brown sugar, I am using coconut palm sugar. You can also use something like Splenda

For the cocoa flavor, I use Hershey's unsweetened cocoa
