Recipe Notes

As mentioned, this recipe also calls for all purpose flour.
However, substituting lower carb flours is doable as well.
To make this low carb, use a low carb all purpose flour.
Also, to make this keto use a keto all purpose flour.
Also mentioned above, to make this recipe gluten free, use an all purpose gluten free flour.
Also, if you are using Almond flour, please add an additional egg to the batter to aid in the binding process. I suggest anyone using any of the all purpose flour alternatives check the packaging to see if an additional egg or other binder for gluten free baking is needed as well.

What you will need to make this donut hole recipe.

Use a unsweetened chocolate (as in baking bars that have no sugar added to them)..
You will also need Dutch Process Unsweetened Cocoa Powder.
This is a different product from the unsweetened cocoa powder that you may be more familiar with. Please check the label on the packaging to assure that you are using the correct product.
