These baked chocolate almond butter donuts will be the best donuts you’ve made! Coming from someone who is actually pretty neutral when it comes to donuts, I decided to make these donuts because I wanted a healthier option for my kids. I used real ingredients like flour, sugar, eggs, and milk, and added Once Again Amoré Organic Almond Spread with Milk Chocolate. I also used the spread as an icing for the donuts.

Once Again Organic Amore Almond Spread with Milk Chocolate
I was first introduced to the brand when they sent over their Organic Chocolate Hazelnut Spread. After whipping up a batch of Chocolate Hazelnut Ice Cream, I proceeded to eat the rest out of the jar, much like I did with their Organic Chocolate Almond Spread.
