Healthy Donuts?!

Everyone loves a donut, even if they do not go out of their way for one everyday, but when presented with a box of fresh donuts anyone would oblige. I personally love donuts but I cannot tell you the last time I had one. I cut donuts out of my everyday diet way before I began trying to loose weight, I knew donuts were one of the worst things to put into our body's so it was best to cut them out completely. The other day I was at Target and I stumbled across a donut-baking tray, almost like a cupcake tray but for donuts. I did not even hesitate, once I saw it I knew I had to have it. Of course I had to make donuts as soon as I got the chance because I was curious to see if this tray would even work.

1 tbp of coconut oil
1 tbs of cinnamon
3 tbs of truvia
3/4 tsp of baking powder
3/4 tsp of baking soda
1/4 tsp of salt
1 tub of Greek yogurt
1 egg
1 cup of perfect fit (any protein powder will work)

You should get a fluffy constancy once you mixed all ingredients together.

1 tbs of honey
1/2 tbs of truvia
1/2 tbs of cinnamon
1 tsp of vanilla extract

These donuts are great for breakfast or a sweet afternoon pick-me-up. They have a bonus healthy factor by not being fried, so you do not have to feel guilty when reaching for seconds!


  1. Im definitly giving this a try, I just bought my sister a mini donut maker for 8 bucks at jcp and they bake the donuts instead of frying them, and since my grandfather is diabetic this recipe will be perfect. Thanks

    1. Thank you and I was thinking of getting one of those machines too. I am surprised the tray worked as well as it did, good luck with the recipe!

  2. Those look amazing! I am also in love with doughnuts and just looking at the outcome of yours made my mouth water. I am totally trying these this weekend!

    1. Thank you so much! They had a cake like texture since they are baked but they were still delicious and I've been having them for breakfast all week.

  3. This looks delicious and something I would love to try. Through your posts you have shown me that eating healthy doesn't have to taste nasty. Amazing!

  4. I will definitely have to borrow this recipe from you. I will not only save money and stop spending extra cash (that isn't so extra) on donuts from dunkin, but it will be way healthier. Then I will make some amazing java with these wonderful looking donuts, Thx!
