I couldn’t wait to share these delicious Paleo chocolate donut holes with you after I shared them with the amazing Katie from Wellness Mama. I have a confession to make: when I was a teenager, I worked at Dunkin Donuts. If you are not from New England, you may not know what Dunkin Donuts is. To keep it simple, people in Massachusetts consider DD to be some sort of religious shrine that is required to function in daily life. With that definition stated, I partook in daily pilgrimages to eat those not so good for me donuts. Fast forward 13 years and they make me sick as a dog so I decided to make my own.
Just in case you don’t subscribe to my YouTube Channel, I just posted a brand new video on Why I am Paleo? Instead of you having to go to YouTube, you can watch it here and leave me a comment letting me know your thoughts. This is the first video of many to come as I will be sharing my thoughts on food, life, my personal growth and anything else I can talk about. Is there something in particular you would like me to address in a video?
Are you still with me? Did the video bore you enough to make you crave chocolate donut holes now? That was my intention so I hope it worked. Just kidding, but for real these things are out of this world and with the holidays coming up, it’s time to get these puppies mastered. I haven’t tested them, but I am positive that these will work as muffins or a cake if you wanted to tackle that. If you do, let me know how it turns out and how long it took :) Well, I have stared at these pictures enough today and now I want to go make them again. While you read this I will probably be stuffing my face with these so enjoy. Talk soon.
