Chocolate Flaxseed Mini Donuts - Low Carb Recipe

No really, you make this with the right ingredients and you're money. 
The cocoa and the flax seed and the whey and the butter.. you're set. It's all low carb. That's right :). 
 My father in law has Type II diabetes and  is staying with us now, so I'm trying to make some "regular" food for him and the family to have low carb options. The first week he's been with us he said his blood sugar has come down since staying with us... and he said he thinks it's because of these muffins. ;0)

 This recipe was adapted from MariaMindBody's recipe

Chocolate Flax Seed Mini Donuts

What You'll Need:

1 cup flax seed meal
1/2 cup unflavored whey protein
1/4 cup Swerve (or 1/4 c Erythritol and 1 tsp stevia glycerite)

6 TBS unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

1 c unsweetened vanilla almond milk
2 tsp vanilla extract
4 tbsp butter
2 large eggs, lightly beaten

- Add 2 Tablespoons chopped pecans
- Add 2 Tablespoons chopped dark chocolate

What You Do:

1) Mix all dry ingredients.

2) Melt butter in microwave

3) Add almond milk and vanilla, stir till mixed. 

4) Add melted butter and lightly beaten eggs. Mix well

5) Let sit for 5 minutes. 

6) Spray each donut mold with coconut oil.

7) Spoon batter carefully into mini donut tin, bake 20 - 23 minutes at 350 degrees. 

Serve warm or cool. 

I've found topping these with peanut butter makes them taste pretty awesome! I also found unsalted butter is tasty as a topping as well. Just throwing those options out there. :) As always, tailor to your diet needs. I do not add nutrition facts to my recipes because looking at the ingredients, etc. is always up to the consumer. :)
