Who ever said that donuts had to be fried and loaded with sugar? Try out these healthy, low carb maple glazed donuts! We love making a batch of these and eating them warm with a glass of unsweetened vanilla almond milk. In fact, since they’re less than 70 calories each, go ahead and have two! These are also great for those picky little ones, and you can rest assured knowing your giving your kids a healthy start to their day.
Glazed Maple Donuts
adapted from the Dashing Dish
Makes 6 servings
- 1/2 cup coconut flour (we used a brand called Coconut Secret)
- 1 egg
- 1 egg white
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1 tbs protein powder (we used TruteinCinnabun)
- 2 tsp maple extract
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- stevia to taste
For the glaze:
- 1/2 cup erythritol powdered sweetener
- 1 tbs almond milk
Preheat oven to 350, and spray a donut pan with non-stick cooking spray. In a small bowl, beat the egg and egg white together, and then add your almond milk, maple extract, and stevia. In another small bowl mix your dry ingredients (coconut flour, protein powder, and baking soda) together, and slowly add your wet ingredients. Spoon donut batter into prepared donut pan, and bake for 20-25 minutes or until donuts are golden brown. While donuts are baking, mix together your ingredients for the glaze. Once donuts are cooked, remove them from the pan while still warm and spoon glaze on top of donuts. Enjoy with a cool glass of milk!
