Whole Wheat Donuts

Whole Wheat Donuts

Serves: 5

I am not much of a donut person, but if you tell me it’s healthy, then I am in!! These donuts are dense and moist. They can be eaten plain or covered in chocolate (yes, I made a chocolate covered version for the boyfriend because he likes all things chocolate!). They would make a great pairing with your morning coffee or afternoon tea!

Fit Ingredients:

  • 1 c (132g) whole wheat flour
  • 1 tbs unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg (or cinnamon)
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 oz coconut milk (or milk of choice)
  • 6 tbs splenda (or sweetener of choice) * You can adjust the sweetness to your liking. These were not super sweet, so if you like things a bit sweeter, feel free to add more!
  • 1 1/2 tbs chocolate chips, optional
  • 1/4 tsp coconut oil (if using chocolate)

*********************************************************************

  • Donut pan
  • Non stick baking spray (with flour)

*********************************************************************

Directions:

Pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees.

Spray your donut pan with non stick spray. Mix the apple sauce, vanilla, egg and milk in a bowl. In a separate bowl mix your flour, nutmeg, and splenda (if using liquid sweetener add it to your wet ingredients). Mix your dry ingredients into your wet ingredients. The ‘dough’ will be very sticky. Fill each donut slot up 2/3 of the way. Wet your fingers if the dough is sticking to them. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and let them cook in the pan for 10 minutes and then transfer them to a cooling rack.

Enjoy them as is, or cover them in chocolate as I did below! :)

And now for the more ‘indulgent’ version……..CHOCOLATE DIPPED!!

Whole Wheat Donuts

Directions:

Melt the chocolate chips and coconut oil in a bowl in the microwave for about 30 seconds. Dip the top of the donut in the chocolate and twist back and forth a few times to fully cover. Use a knife to spread the chocolate evenly if needed! Very easy!
