If you want a little doughnut with all good ingredients then keep on reading!  I created a little healthy doughnut that tastes amazing, grain free, healthy fats, low carb, refined sugar free, and guilt free.  If you’re going to cheat, then cheat clean right?!  But honestly, you can easily fit this in with your healthy diet and have it as a treat at night.  It’s so delicious and also kid approved.  I’m cutting out bad sugars again now that I’m wanting to shed the baby weight, but I’m doing it slowly and trying to keep it as healthy as possible, especially since I’m breast feeding.  I still have to have my treats, you guys know this!  BUT I’ll figure out a way to create a treat thats healthy and not going to set me off track.

If you’re into the keto diet then these are 100% for you!  Made with the best from Better Body Foods.  I used their coconut oil, agave and coconut flour.. Agave is a sweetener thats low glycemic.  Coconut oil is going to keep you feeling satisfied longer and the agave won’t give you a sugar crash like refined sugars will.  So here we go!  Super easy to make btw, just the way I like things.

FIRST, you need to get these DOUGHNUT MOLDS to cook with, OR just use a greased muffin tin.  I love those molds because they don’t stick and super easy to clean too.  Plus they make it fun to bake with, especially for kiddos because you can trick them into thinking they’re the real thing ya know?

WHAT YOU NEED 

DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350
  • In a large bowl, mix soft coconut oil (heat up a little before if needed), eggs, agave and apple sauce.  Mix until smooth.  It may look a little chunky, but thats normal, it will smooth out in oven when its cooking.
  • Add in coconut flour and baking soda, stir until mixed together.
  • Add in chocolate chips.
  • Fill about two spoons up and place into each mold.  Place in oven for 17-20 minutes.
  • Makes about 12 doughnuts.

CHOCOLATE COCONUT CREAM

I don’t know about you guys, but I get sick of always wanting something sweet at night!  It makes it so hard sometimes to stay on track.  So I’ve been reading a lot about high fat diets and healthy fats and how they can really help curb your appetite and make you more satisfied.

So I created something SO delicious with Better Body Foods products.  This is totally sugar free and sweetened with Monk Fruit.  I put them in these little glass containers to store in my fridge, so you can honestly put it in whatever you’d like.  It makes about 6 servings.   What we’ve been doing is eating it with raspberries and whipped cream.  It REALLY helps the sugar cravings at night.  Totally feel completely satisfied after eating it.  You can add it to whatever you’d like, or just eat a few bites plain whenever you feel you need it!  

I’m going to be eating this a lot for sure when I’m trying to lose this baby weight! 

WHAT YOU NEED.

DIRECTIONS

  • In a saucepan add in coconut milk, and monk fruit, then bring to medium heat and stir.  Let that simmer a couple mins.
  • In a medium bowl whisk together the egg yolks. Then reduce to medium heat and mix in xantham gum.
  • Then slowly whisk in the egg yolks into the coconut milk mixture.
  • Add in the cacao powder slowly whisking in and cook until it thickens. About 3-4 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and stir in coconut oil and vanilla extract. 
  • Then pour into dessert cups, jars, whatever you want to store it in.  Then let it sit for 2-3 hours in the fridge before eating.
  • Once ready to eat, mix in some nuts, fruit and whipped cream!  I use about 3 tbsp of the mix, add in berries and top with whipped cream for a late night treat!  I’m telling you its THE BEST way to curb the appetite and make you feel satisfied!  Even Oaksies LOVES it. So kid approved there!
