Paleo Chocolate Matcha Donuts

I always like to find a healthier alternative to "junk food." I always say though that just because they are healthier doesn't mean they should be eaten every day!


These gluten free donuts are high in fiber, protein, and healthy fats. Cacao is high in antioxidants, is anti-inflammatory, and boosts the body’s production of serotonin, which improves your mood.
