There is no denying my gluttonous love for all things on the dessert scale: cakes, muffins, pies, cookies, and most especially…. doughnuts. Now we all know none of these are considered healthy but they can be with the right ingredients or alternative substitutes. I recently purchased a mini donut maker, which may or may not be a good thing but it was on sale ($9.99). It gave me a good excuse to eat doughnuts, but also try and experiment a way that would make them healthier, a win-win right?!
After some initial thinking and brainstorming I decided I would try to make a healthier mini doughnut recipe with protein. I mean I might as well make them somewhat nutritious! Since they are baked and are not deep fryed like typical doughnuts, it gives them a unique texture with all the same goodness, I promise. These are great to grab as a snack on-the-go, as a post-workout treat, or even as a dessert component after dinner.
If you’re looking for a guilt-free, low-gluten recipe this is the one for you!
