Paleo Chocolate Glazed Donuts

This is my Chocolate Orange Peel Cake Recipe . It makes fantastic cake donuts

Prep time: 25min
Cook time: 8min at 325F
Yields: 48 Mini Donuts (Or cut this recipe in half to make 24 which is plenty!) I use this pan!!

Dry Ingredients in a small bowl, incorporate:
3/4C Coconut Flour (Half recipe - 3/8C)
1/4C Unsweetened Cacao Powder (Half recipe - 1/8C)
1t Salt (Half Recipe - 1/4t)
1t Baking Soda (Half Recipe - 1/2t)

Blend Wet Ingredients in a large bowl with hand mixer:
10 Eggs (Half Recipe - 5)
1 1/2C Honey (Half Recipe - 3/4C)
1t Vanilla (Half Recipe - 1/2t)
1/2t Orange Zest (Half Recipe - 1/2t I use the whole amount here)

Then add 1C Melted Coconut Oil (or 1/2C for a half recipe) and mix in immediately so that it doesn't harden up. Not doing it this way will change the consistency of your donut.

Grease your pan with coconut oil. Pour batter to fill 2/3 of each donut mold. Bake at 325F for 8min. Toothpick should come out clean.
For the Chocolate Glaze:
Melt 4oz Unsweetened 100% Chocolate, 1/2C Honey, 1/2C Coconut Oil with a splash of vanilla under very low heat until melted.  I used a small ramekin to dunk my cooled donuts into the glaze. After dunked, place on pan with parchment paper. Store in frig until right before serving as glaze will not stay very hard outside the frig for long, but they will still taste fantastic if the glaze becomes a bit softer. YUM!!
