Another version of an healthy donut! The recipe is different from the Chocolate donut’s but it’s still quite healthy and just as easy to make. And of course, they are TO DIE FOR!
You’ll only need a non-stick donut pan and you’re all set to go! No fryer and virtually no oil necessary.
This recipe is very simple and it takes just a few minutes to make. Cooking time is just about 10 minutes. Basically, it’s quicker than driving yourself to the closest donut shop!
You can decide to coat the top completely with the glaze or just to drizzle a bit on top. Or, you can forgo the glaze altogether for an even healthier version. It’s all good!
