2) Then, in a large bowl, put the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and coconut sugar and mix together
3) Unwrap two of the Carb Killa® Go Nuts™  bars  and chop very finely with a sharp knife or whizz in a food processor until well chopped
4) To the flax seed mixture,  add the milk, yoghurt and vinegar
5) Preheat your oven to 180 Fan / 200 C / 400 F / Gas 6 and grease your donut moulds with a little oil or spray oil
6) Next, add the bowl of wet ingredients to the bowl of dry and mix thoroughly together, making sure no pockets of flour remain
7) Then, spoon into a piping bag either with the end snipped off or a narrow plain nozzle fitted
8) Pipe the batter into the moulds, filling each recess 2/3 full and then bake for 25 minutes until well risen and golden
10) Leave to cool for 5 minutes in the moulds before popping out then leave to cool on a wire rack
11) Once the donuts are cooled, break the chocolate into chunks and melt in the microwave or over a bain-marie (a heatproof bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water)12) While that's melting, roughly chop the remaining Carb Killa® Go Nuts™  bar into small pieces
13) Dip the smooth, rounded side of the donuts into the chocolate then sprinkle with some of the chopped up bars
14) Leave the chocolate to set and then enjoy!
