Chocolate Vegan Spiced Donuts

by - 10/18/2018 12:00:00 AM

To be honest, I’m not a huge fan of chocolate. However, when I’m in the mood for it. It’s chocolate everything. After making my homemade baked pumpkin vegan donuts not too long ago. I was in the mood for chocolate vegan donuts. This recipe turned out delicious. It’s so nice to be able to have a healthy treat whenever that's pretty much guilt free. What I love about creating recipes is that it’s all about trial and error. Sometimes the recipe comes out perfect on the first batch, and sometimes it takes a little tweaking. Which leaves me with plenty of samples. Since my lifestyle change. I honestly try to make my recipes as healthy as possible as well as low in calories. This the reason they’re not dipped in a homemade chocolate frosting recipe for those who are wondering. I’m sure the homemade frosting I made for the sweet potato brownies I made would be super yummy for this recipe though. I love that this recipe is super easy to make and I had all of the ingredients on hand. This recipe is pretty much perfect for any time of the day. Whether you want a quick snack or something to indulge in, in the mornings.
