Chocolate-Dipped Doughnuts (paleo doughnuts)

Chocolate-Dipped Doughnuts (paleo doughnuts)

My daughter received a mini doughnut maker (like a waffle iron) for a recent gift.  Ugh…so I had to find a way to make it work!  If you don’t have one, I’m sure a mini-muffin pan would be perfect!  This recipe was a hit with both of my girls…my youngest is a little pickier, so I have to try really hard to hide any signs of coconut which can be challenging as a Paleo cook!
