know about you guys (SEE WHAT I DID THERE?), but we totally celebrated National Donut Day with some homemade, and way healthier baked donuts! I ate two, Brian ate 3, and Bowie grabbed one off the counter and shamefully enjoyed his with his head under our couch. Bad dog.

Donut

  • 2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 cup non fat milk
  • 1/2 cup Eggbeaters egg substitute 
  • 1/4 100% real maple syrup 
  • 2 tablespoons melted earth balance 
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract 
  • 1/2 cup drained canned no sugar added cherries  
  • 1 Wilton Donut pan

Frosting

  • 1 square semi sweet bakers chocolate
  • 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk 

Directions 

1)Set oven to 400F

2)Mix all dry 

ingredients

3) Incorporate wet ingredients 

4)Coat donut pan with non stick spray

5)Fill each donut about 2/3 of the way full

6)Bake for about 12 minutes or until donuts are golden brown and nothing sticks to a toothpick when inserted in donut. 

7)Flip donuts out onto cooling rack and let cool

8)Melt frosting 

ingredients

 in microwave until combined and Delicious. Resist urge to eat this as it's probably about a million degrees

9) Take cooled donuts in plop them face down in the frosting mix

10) Flip right side over and let the frosting cool and harden a bit

11) Try not to let your dog shame eat them, and enjoy! 

Makes six, mine came out to around 5 WW points per donut
