Serves 6 | Prep Time 10 | Cook Time 12


1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour

3 Tablespoons sugar

3 Tablespoons brown sugar

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 Tablespoons lowfat buttermilk

4 Tablespoons unsweetened apple sauce

1 egg

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 Tablespoon melted coconut oil (or butter)

for glaze:
1/2 cup powdered sugar

1-2 teaspoons lowfat milk

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 325 degrees and spray donut pan with cooking spray.

In a large bowl, mix flour, sugars, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Set aside.

In a small bowl, add applesauce, lowfat buttermilk, egg, vanilla and melted butter. Whisk or stir to combine. Slowly add to the dry ingredients. Stir until just combined. Do not overmix.

Using a piping bag or a ziplock bag with the corner cut off, pipe the batter carefully into prepared donut pan making sure each cavity is only ⅔ full. Bake for 10-12 minutes (donuts should be fluffy and should spring back when touched mine took 12 minutes).

Allow to cool slightly before removing from pan, about 5 minutes.

Top with vanilla glaze (recipe + instructions below).
