Deliciously baked and not fried, these easy to make Dark Chocolate Donuts with Peanut Butter Glaze will be ready in 30 minutes!
These are delicious chocolate donuts that are baked, not fried and are lightly sweet. They are soft and fluffy and the peanut butter glaze is crazy delicious.
You can never go wrong with chocolate and peanut butter. It is my number 1 combination of flavors.
Most of you know how much I love these two together. So now that I am on a baked donut kick, why not make some donuts with my favorite combination?
This came out amazing! They are moist, delicious and healthier than your typical fried donuts with tons of sugar.
And the peanut butter glaze? Just melted peanut butter with no added sugars!
These delicious chocolate donuts are so incredibly versatile. I have made them with milk chocolate cocoa powder instead of dark chocolate powder as well as almond butter, pecan butter and even sunflower seed butter to mix up the glaze!
These donuts are also freezer friendly, even after they are glazed. I like to store them in individual airtight containers and freeze them so when I crave a donut I just defrost one at a time for portion control.
