Frosted Baked Chocolate Doughnuts

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

Method

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!
