Ingredients

  • For the Donuts
  • 1 C whole wheat flour
  • 1 C unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 C granulated sugar substitute or sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 C non-fat buttermilk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 C honey
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2/3 C strawberries, mashed with fork
  • For the Glaze
  • 2 large strawberries
  • about 1 C confectioner's sugar
  • 1/4 tsp fresh lime juice

Directions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 375. Spray donut pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  • 2. In a medium bowl, combine flours, sugar substitute, and baking powder. In a small bowl, mix together the buttermilk, eggs, honey, butter, and vanilla. 3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until well-combined. Stir in mashed strawberries.
  • 3. Spoon batter into a pastry bag or a ziplock bag with the corner snipped. Pipe batter into pan. Fill about 2/3 full (though it's hard to tell using a mini donut pan!).
  • 4. Bake for 5-7 minutes or until donuts start to turn light golden brown.
  • 5. Allow to cool for a couple of minutes in the pan before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • 6. While the donuts are cooling, prepare the glaze.
  • 7. In a small bowl, beat the strawberries with a hand mixer until well mashed. Add the confectioner's sugar and lime juice. Beat until smooth.
  • 8. Dip cooled donuts in glaze and allow to harden. Or snitch some and allow the rest to harden. :)
  • 9. Store left-over glazed donuts in the refrigerator, if there are any left!
