99% of the recipes on this blog are savory, because that’s what I enjoy cooking the most. I’ve never been very interested in baking aside from making cookies at Christmas. When I saw these Wilton donut pans available on sale for Amazon Prime Day this year, I knew I had to have them, and I was so excited to incorporate them into this week’s recipe. I already have ideas swirling around in my head for future savory and sweet donuts to put on my blog, so maybe this will be the start of venturing into the world of desserts for Butter Is Not a Carb! (I make no promises, of course.) Back to these donuts… show me a man who doesn’t love donuts and I’ll show you a liar. No just kidding, there are probably people that don’t like them and that’s fine, more donuts for me. These chocolate chip donuts are dessert for breakfast, or breakfast for dessert, depending on the time of day you enjoy one (or two…).
Next I added in the eggs one at a time, scraping down the sides of the bowl between each to make sure all the ingredients were mixing together. I also poured in the vanilla extract and let it mix together for about 15 seconds.
Using a large spatula, I folded the chocolate chips into the mixture. I love buying the Hershey’s Sugar Free chocolate chips from my local grocery store, as their sugar alcohols do not affect my blood sugar, but feel free to use dark chocolate pieces or any other preferred low carb chocolate.
I sprayed the donut pans with non-stick spray and used a spoon to evenly portion out the dough between both pans. I gently dropped the pans on the counter a few times to be sure there were no air pockets and to even them out on top. I baked the donuts for 20 minutes until they were cooked through and slightly golden brown. I checked the centers by inserting a tooth pick and making sure it pulled out clean and not wet. Although delicious as-is, an optional finish for these donuts is to melt an additional 1/4c of chocolate chips in the microwave for 30-45 seconds and drizzling the chocolate over top of each donut. These donuts give me life. I love how fluffy they are, almost like a muffin texture, and the sugar free chocolate chips add the perfect amount of sweetness in each one. These would be great at your next office birthday celebration or just sitting on your counter for you and your family to enjoy!
