These low-carb donuts are a delicious baked treat. Because they are baked, there isn't the mess or expense associated with deep frying. Be sure to grease your donut pan well with butter or coconut oil and allow donuts to cool before gently removing from the pan.
Preheat oven to 350* F and grease donut pan well with melted butter.
In a medium mixing bowl, combine almond flour, coconut flour, erythritol/monk fruit combination sweetener, cinnamon, baking powder, xanthan gum, and sea salt.
To the mixed dry ingredients, add melted butter, eggs, water, and vanilla and mix thoroughly.
Gently spoon batter into prepared donut pan, filling each cavity slightly less than full. This works best if you spoon little dollops all the way around each donut indentation, they will melt together as the donuts bake.
Bake for 25-30 minutes, until donuts start to pull away from the pan slightly and are a bit darker than golden brown. Remove the pan to a cooling rack and allow to cool until comfortable to the touch. Remove gently using a butter knife to gently lift from the mold and press into any stuck parts.
In a microwave-safe bowl, combine chocolate chips and butter. Microwave on high in 20-second increments, stirring with a fork between each. The frosting is done once it is stirred easily with a fork or whisk.
Once donuts have been removed from the pan, spread or drizzle with melted chocolate. Allow to completely cool to set up, or enjoy while warm.
