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

Pinch salt

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 


Special Equipment:

Donut pan



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.
