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.

Planning Ahead Tip of the Month

Build time-saving habits

There are plenty of little habits you can build while cooking that will make you more efficient. For example, rinse prep dishes as you go to make washing them easier or move them into the dishwasher as you’re working. You can also create a scrap bag or bowl where you discard skins, odd bits, or anything else you might throw away while cooking – this way you don’t have to lose your flow walking over to the trash can. A huge time-saver: prep bowls. Measure out your ingredients beforehand and set them out in prep bowls. That way, once it’s time to use them, you can just grab the bowl and pour.
