While visiting New York a few weeks ago I had the pleasure of consuming a gourmet doughnut. This thing was the size of my head (not really haha) and was covered in peanut butter, chocolate, and pretzels! It was hands down the BEST doughnut ever!
^^That definitely inspired me to get home and create my own doughnut recipe.
I wanted a healthier doughnut that you could enjoy everyday though, and I didn’t want artificial ingredients/additives, or a high amount of fat.
Not only are these lower in fat, they only have 4 grams of sugar each! Best of all, they don’t taste like chalk 🙂
I’ve included a recipe for a Greek yogurt frosting, but these would be great topped with a nut butter, nutella, or your own icing.
Baked Chocolate Doughnuts
3/4 Cup Spelt Flour (can sub oat or all-purpose)
1/2 Cup Almond Flour
1/4 Cup Coconut Flour
1 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 Cup Cacao Powder
1 Large Egg, Beaten
2 TB Egg Whites
1 Cup Almond Milk
3 TB Plain Greek Yogurt
2 TB Honey
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
Preheat oven to 350
Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl and mix well.
Measure all liquids in a separate bowl, mix and combine with dry ingredients.
Stir well and fill each doughnut mold equally (yields 12).
Bake for 10-12 minutes, remove from heat, and cool.
While they bake, here’s a frosting to try!
Greek Yogurt Frosting
1/4 Cup Plain Greek Yogurt (or vanilla)
2 TB Stevia (or sweetener of choice)
2 tsp Coconut Extract
Mix well, spread over doughnut, and top with sprinkles!
