Kahlua Chocolate Chip Donuts

Kahlua Chocolate Chip Donuts… this may be my best creation yet!! We are getting boozy!! I have a love affair with Kahlua and I’ve been wanting to put it into something baked for awhile, so when the opportunity presented itself, I had to take it. And man oh man, I’m so glad I did. They turned out f*cking amazing!!! I mean they were gone in 2 days… šŸ™‚

The great thing is aside from the chocolate chips and Kahlua, the base recipe is gluten and refined sugar free, so they’re pretty healthy as well!

Now, I did take it up a notch and add some coffee, vanilla ice cream and drizzle a bit more Kahlua on top (so that may not be super healthy) but it may have been one of the best things I’ve ever made and ate. It was so delicious! I’m so excited to share the recipe so check it out and enjoy!
