Happy National Donut Day!!! If you're like me, and LOVE donuts, but not the lethargy + guilt that comes after eating them, I've got the perfect recipe for you! Bake up a batch of these paleo, gluten-free Cacao Magic donuts—they're wonderfully light, packed with protein and fiber, + are won't overwhelm your body with a crazy sugar rush!
Cacao Magic, Cacao Bee, and coconut flour, which creates a super fluffy texture and adds in extra fiber + protein, are the star ingredients in these superfood confectionaries. Cacao is naturally energizing, as it contains a stimulant called theobromine that gradually releases energy throughout the day, instead of creating the same sort of energy spike as caffeine.
And these little donuts are super easy to make—simply blend up all the ingredients, pour the batter into your donut iron, and voila! You'll have beautiful, superfood donuts that taste (+look!) delightful dressed up in coconut butter frosting + superfood toppings!
