"Healthier" Mini Donuts🍩
I absolutely LOVE donuts!! Any kind, shape or flavor! As long as it's a donut! However, too much can be a problem on the waistline. I really have to behave myself when I'm around a box of delicious donuts! I live by the rule of "everything in moderation!" You only live once, right?
Being true to my rule, I decided to share this great recipe for mini donuts! I made some minor tweaks, to make them, somewhat-guilt free! This way, if you're like me and LOVE donuts, you can enjoy few and not worry so much about it wrecking your diet!
Just remember.... EVERYTHING IN MODERATION! Just because its low in calories doesn't mean you can eat 4 servings a few times throughout the day!
BEFORE YOU START, MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A MINI DONUT PAN!
1 cup flour (White, wheat, oat or gluten free flour (I used whole wheat flour)
½ cup sugar (Honey works great too!)
1 teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
½ cup milk (I used fat free but 2% is fine!)
1 brown egg
1 tablespoon canola oil
½ teaspoon vanilla
Mix dry ingredients together.
Mix wet ingredients together.
Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix.
Spray a mini donut pan with a non-stick spray.
Spoon batter into donut pan filling each compartment ¾ full.
Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 10-12 minutes.
Let cool for 2 minutes and then remove from pan.
When donuts are completely cooled, roll each donut in powdered sugar, dip in melted chocolate or a mix of cinnamon and sugar! Top them however you like!!
