Healthy-ish Donuts for Teddy by Lauren Bloomberg
Donuts for Teddy.
I love donuts and grew up hanging out at my local Dunkin's. My three-year-old Teddy, on the other hand, is fairly new to the donut game and he's already obsessed. This recipe has everything that I'm into as a mom: it's a treat, but not as unhealthy/sugary/processed as the store bought stuff. And, I think, more delish. I ate half the yield.
Makes six donuts.
Ingredients for Donuts:
1 cup whole wheat flour
½ cup granulated sugar
¼ tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp allspice
1 large egg
½ cup Greek yogurt
3 tbsp almond milk
1 tbsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp avocado oil
Ingredients for Glaze:
2 tbsp almond milk
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit.
Spray a donut pan with cooking spray.
Combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
Add the wet ingredients to a second bowl, whisk to combine.
Fold the wet mixture into the dry ingredients until just combined.
Using a teaspoon, spoon batter into the greased donut pan. Feel free to fill almost to the top.
Bake for 13-15 minutes. Remove from the oven and turn out donuts onto a wire rack to cool for 10 minutes.
While donuts are cooling, whisk together glaze ingredients in a shallow bowl. Working with one donut at a time, dunk into glaze and turn to cover all sides. Place the donut back onto the wire rack to let the glaze set.
