Yes, I finally jumped on the baked donut band wagon.
I asked for the donuts pans for my birthday which was a little over 2 months ago. I was so excited to start baking my own donuts but because of the weight loss challenge and trying to form better eating habits I decided that I’d hold off for a few months.
Eating just one is such a challenge, I’ll have three 🙂
Then I realized making my own donuts would be a lot healthier than most dessert I allow myself to eat now.
Gluten free sprinkles!
I have been saving Mandiee’s vegan donut recipe this whole time! I made the donuts out of Bob’s Red Mill GF flour (plus a tablespoon of oat flour). When you think about it, this donuts aren’t really all that bad health-wise. Flour made out of grains and beans, lower sugar, and healthier topping options such as a melted dark chocolate bar.
My favorite part was frosting them
After I made these I left them out on a plate for my family to enjoy. Forgetting that my brother hates dark chocolate, I offer him one. He immediately spit it out and washed his mouth out, rude! Maybe next time I make them for other people I’ll add a little agave to sweeten them up?
So spongy and fluffy!
He did like the vanilla icing I made out of vanilla extract, powdered sugar, and hot water.
