I am the first to admit that I have a very large sweet tooth… I mean sweets are probably my favorite food group after all. Chocolate is probably my weakness, dark chocolate to be exact. I eat pretty healthy and try to offer healthier alternatives than just plain old chocolate donuts and muffins for breakfast. That is is why this Healthy Chocolate Donut Recipe is probably my go-to recipe for when I want something chocolaty and yummy for breakfast. It is made with oat flour and has no processed sugar, so I feel pretty good about having it as a nice little treat every so often.

Now, if you do not have a donut pan, that is perfectly ok, I make them into mini muffins as well and they turn out perfect that way too! My kids actually prefer the mini muffins, because they can throw them in a bag and go in the mornings.

The batter itself is not very sweet, you get most of the sweetness from the chocolate glaze that you put on top of it. While I love the chocolate glaze, you can always mix it up with a caramel sauce, or even a little melted peanut butter for some added protein!
