Healthy Baked Donuts


Most of you come to my place here, knows that I don't do healthy stuff. I don't know if I call this healthy I would say Low Fat ;-) don't count the chocolate on top.

I have always wanted to make donuts, but always chickend out as it was fully deepfried ( I love eating them, but i think if I make them home I might not be able to stop with one) so long ago when I saw this in the wonderful blog Litle Corner of Mine I bookmarked it, just that it took me a bit longer to make them.
I was glad to se her using baked ones as I too had bought this baking pan and it was just sitting there without me using them. These are ok but you can't comapre with the real ones.
If you want to make yourself this, check out the recipe in her place here

Don't know how I missed this post. Have always wanted to bake doughnuts but didn't have the pan.
I finally got some single doughnut tins from Mumbai.
These doughnuts are making me hungry and reminding me I need to try them too.

These look so good! I tried baking donuts once (I have the pans), but they came out awful.:{ I suspect a dud recipe. Will try again with your lead. I know my husband will be very happy. :}

I never thought I'd hear the day where healthy and donuts were in the same sentence. Been on a hunt for a donut recipe for a little while now and glad to find a healthy option.

Thanks for sharing this, my kids are going to absolutely love these if I make them right :)
