Healthier Homemade Donuts

Written by COA Nutrition Team On August 2, 2019

These chocolatey homemade donuts taste sweet and indulgent, and are topped with a thick, rich glaze made from two simple ingredients. Try them the next time you’re looking for a lightened-up dessert.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup skim milk
  • 1/4 cup Greek yogurt, vanilla
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup cake flour
  • 1/3 cup chocolate protein powder
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder, unsweetened
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips, semisweet
  • 1 tablespoon oil, avocado

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray donut pan with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, add the egg, almond milk, Greek yogurt, honey, and vanilla. Whisk to fully combine.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix flour, protein powder, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix together then add to wet ingredients. Stir together until fully combined. Scoop out by 2-3 tablespoons full, into the donut mold. This should fill each mold 2/3 full.
  4. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  5. Mix chocolate chips with avocado oil in a microwave safe dish. Heat in the microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring each time. Once it is smooth, dip the top of each donut into the glaze and allow the excess to drip off.
  6. Chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to harden the glaze.

Tips of the Month MOBILE

Planning Ahead Tip of the Month

Choose whole grains

Pick whole grains over refined grains, at least 50 percent of the time. Whole grains like brown rice and bulgur have their bran intact and thus have more fiber, B vitamins, magnesium, zinc and other nutrients. Try quinoa, whole wheat pasta, oats, farro and barley as side dishes, on top of salads and in soups.
