I used to love Krispy Kreme doughnuts back in the day, but needless to say they weren’t doing my body any favors. These doughnuts are super yummy and while still a dessert meant for a special treat, are such a better alternative for your health. They are lower in sugar, baked not fried, made with whole grain flour, and no oil. My kids love them and so do I!
Raspberry Doughnuts with Lemon Glaze (makes 6)
1 1/3 c. whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 c. non-dairy milk
1/2 c. applesauce
1/3 c. sugar ( I like coconut sugar)
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pure stevia – this is the very concentrated stuff , or 4 Tbsp. more of sugar
1 c. raspberries, I used thawed frozen ones
1/2 c. powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Use a non-stick doughnut pan. In a large bowl add all dry ingredients and stir well. Then add all wet ingredients except for the berries. Stir well until batter is combined. Then add berries and stir gently to mix. Spoon drop batter into your doughnut pan and bake for about 16-18 minutes or until done. Allow to completely cool before glazing to it doesn’t all melt off.
To make the glaze, simply stir all glaze ingredients together in a small bowl. If you need to make any adjustments to the amounts to get the consistency you want then do so. More sugar will firm it up and more juice will thin it out.
Drizzle glaze on top of cooled doughnuts or dunk the tops directly into the glaze. Enjoy!
Note: You will want to glaze the doughnuts right before serving. It doesn’t hold up as well over time because it may start to absorb into the doughnut.
