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.
