TESTIMONY OF THE DAY
“Dear Maria and Craig, I wanted to send a big thank you to you for inspiring me back into the kitchen whilst helping my health at the same time! I’ve only been doing your program for a week now and was keto-adapted since January. I’m only now seeing real results in my weight loss! The suggestions for supplements have helped my overall well being and the menus are a great way of helping me learn about quantities too. I will definitely write to you again with before and after pictures once I get to where I am happy with my weight and health. Kind Regards, Claudine. (Guetersloh, Germany)”

Can I use lard instead of butter?
When you say coconut milk, do ypu mean the kind in the can, or the kind meant to drink?
I always use the ones in the can.
Is the Nutrition Information for the whole batch of donuts or just one?
It is per serving. Makes 16 servings. 🙂
Think this would work in my Babycakes cake ball maker? http://www.amazon.com/Babycakes-Pop-Maker-CP-94LV-Purple/dp/B00695UQV8
That should work. 🙂
OOOO-EMMM-GEEEE! I just pulled a pan of these out of the oven and let me tell you, they are scrumptious! I’m new to low carb baking (and the related ingredients), so I was skeptical mixing these up. I tasted the batter and while it was good, it was also oddly lumpy despite attempting to get it “smooth” as the recipe directed. Needless worry! I broke one apart while still warm and took a bite…sooo good! The icing?? LORD! I think I’ve gone to low carb heaven….Thank you, Maria! 🙂
Ha! Thank you!!
I’m kinda confused by this… your donut pan link links to a 6 donut pan… recipe says use two… but servings is 16? Isn’t that 12 servings? Or did you have two 8 donut pans?
