Baked Cinnamon Doughnuts
Why I Love This Recipe
Ingredients You'll Need
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
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 Tablespoon melted coconut oil (or butter)
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).
