Healthy Double Chocolate Sweet Potato Donuts

Here is the double chocolate donut recipe you didn’t know you needed. I kept these nice and basic: double chocolate. However, I HIGHLY recommend having some fun with these by adding a little something special.

Make them festive by adding some crushed candy cane on top, some mini chocolate chips, skor bits, raspberries… you do you this holiday season.

If you don’t have a donut tin DON’T sweat it, just use a muffin tin. Same results just no hole in the middle!

Sweet Potato

If you are hesitant about the sweet potato, don’t be. It adds a “moist” texture and a slight sweetness to these decadent dark chocolaty cake donuts.

Kinda like my avocado brownies. Its all about the texture and flavour you know. Check out the brownie recipe below.

Put your comfy Christmas PJs on and have fun baking sweet treats for all the important people in your life, including yourself:)

I'd like to consider myself a food and coffee enthusiast. I always get excited to create eat flavourful recipes that fuel my mind and my body. A few of my favourite foods consist of salads (the fun kind), sourdough bread, avocados, and almond butter. My coffee order is an iced americano with oatmilk no matter the weather.
