Healthy Baked Donuts

Confession time. I am honestly not the biggest fan of your typical donut. I mean yes I obviously enjoy a good Dunkin Donuts donut, but I don’t think I have ever in my life actually craved one!! I’m way more of a brownie or cookie girl, hence the amount of those recipes I have. However, I am a HUGE fan of these Healthy Baked Donuts. They are actually the first recipe that I remember sharing on here and I even made a white chocolate version for the holidays. These donuts were getting a lot of love so I figured it was time to revamp them! I made a batch the other day, added a simple & sweet glaze, and finally shot some photos that did them justice. So I now present to you the new and improved Healthy Baked Donuts. They are fluffy as can be and perfectly sweet. A light treat that would go absolutely perfect with a morning cup of coffee or tea.

What you need for these Healthy Baked Donuts!

These donuts are actually gluten free and dairy free! Without the glaze they are also refined sugar free. They are made with healthy, wholesome ingredients that will make you feel your best and are even a good breakfast option! So pretty much the opposite of most donuts!!!

Donuts

  • Oat Flour: Oat flour is one of my favorite gluten free flours to use, along with almond flour which is also used in this recipe! I always make my own oat flour by simply blending up oats in a high speed blender until a fine flour is formed. However, you can also purchase it! Either way make sure your oats or oat flour are certified gluten free if you have a severe sensitivity or allergy.
  • Almond Flour: My other favorite gluten free flour! I love the texture that almond and oat flour, when used together, create in a baked good.
  • Coconut Sugar: I love to bake with coconut sugar! It is a refined sugar free option and creates delicious treats.
  • Almond Milk: I always use unsweetened vanilla almond milk, but feel free to use regular almond milk. You could also use any milk you have on hand and enjoy!
  • Eggs: Pretty self explanatory!! Gotta have your eggs.
  • Oil: I have used both avocado and olive oil in this recipe, and both work! Simply use what you have available.
  • Pure Maple Syrup: This recipe just calls for a touch of pure maple syrup, which is my other favorite refined sugar free sweetener! Make sure to use the good pure stuff.
  • Lastly we’ve got Vanilla Extract & Salt for some flavor and Baking Powder for leavening.

Glaze

  • Powdered Sugar: I just used good old classic powdered sugar, but if you want or need healthier options there are definitely some out there! I would just do a little research.
  • Almond Milk & Vanilla Extract
