I’m not going to lie, I don’t remember the last time I had a donut. A real donut. And I’m ok with that. I do, however, have a major sweet tooth when it comes to my breakfast meals, so I just couldn’t resist trying my hand at another baked donut recipe — with chocolate!
A Note About this Recipe: Just like my Fun-Fetti Donuts, I’ve substituted a few ingredients to make these lighter — both in calories and texture. The results are a cake-like donut chocked full of chocolate-y goodness. My personal trick to how I got the “chunk” in these Chocolate Chunk Donuts is I broke down a chocolate bar instead of using traditional chocolate chips. To keep things lo-cal I recommend either Lily’s Dark Chocolate (available online or at Whole Foods) or Simply Lite available online or at Trader Joe’s). Otherwise, you can certainly use your favorite chocolate bar or regular chocolate chips.
