It’s easy to make healthy donuts when you have a small appliance that helps you a lot. I bought a waffle maker and it came with mini donuts maker so it was great. When I am in the mood for donuts and I want them to be healthier than the ones here I choose to make it this way.
I don’t use white sugar or brown sugar and I substituted them with maple syrup or honey.
- 2 cups flour
- 2 tablespoon maple syrup
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 cup milk
- 2 tablespoon butter
- 1 teaspoon homemade vanilla extract
Mix all ingredients together well. If you want to make them fluffier mix the eggs first with the maple syrup and then add the rest of the ingredients.
I use a big spoon to fill each donuts hole. I always follow the directions of the donutsmaker about filling the holes. Experiment with the baking time to see how they look. I found that I like my donuts to be cooked a little more than the book says.
You can serve them with maple syrup, honey, jam or chocolate. I didn’t put too much of maple syrup in the batter. Sometimes I don’t put any maple syrup and I add cheese. Yummy! It is great for salty donuts.

I like this recipe. I also do not use much sugar, but when I have to, i only use Muscovado.
I SO Love them!! 😍😍😍
Look so good!
Sounds wonderful and I like the idea of changing some of the ingredients to make healthier choices.
They sound delicious!
I am so trying out this recipe. Thank you!
You are welcome
Ok, want to make your mini doughnuts and have asked for a new waffle maker for my birthday later this months; however, the waffle iron with donut trays cost $400 US. I can buy a lot of regular donuts for that $. What kind of device are you using?!
One I bought from Lidl at 50%.
I could do with 6 of these served hot with a cup of Tetley brew. If wishes were horses…damn you quarantine!!!
Great recipe and fantastic tip! I never knew you could make donuts in a waffle maker. Thanks!
I love your blog and I saw that you like my recipes on my blog mens sana in corpore sano.
I can’t find your contact page for that I allow myself to put you a comment.
I would like to know if it wouldn’t bother you that I can put your donut recipe in my blog, of course, I would translate it into French and Spanish and I mentioned your blog.
Thanks in advance

Thank you. Have a great day!
Wow these look so cute 🙂
Is it possible to make them without a donut maker in the oven?
It is a little difficult because the batter is kind of liquid. You will need some forms. You can try muffins forms.
They look so good👍
I am going to try this, thanks for the tips👍
