BRIKA eats: Healthy dark chocolate pecan glazed donuts

BRIKA eats

This recipe completely reversed two preconceived notions we had about donuts: 1) they can be healthy, and 2) they can be made at home. Using ingredients any health-conscious household would already have and producing pretty works of art in less than 30 minutes, these airy and addictive donuts are paleo and free of gluten, dairy and refined sugars.
