Don’t ever let someone tell you that donuts can’t be healthy, because they actually can be as long as you bake them! The tasty treat is perfect for breakfast, lunch, or a snack in between at the workplace.
Check out these healthy, gluten free, and vegan options that will put a new spin on the classic food item.
Cinnamon Roll Donuts
If you love cinnamon rolls, and you love donuts, why not put them together to make the ultimate sweet treat? Two recipes are available, one from Bare Root Girl that offers a maple almond glaze, and is jam packed with proteins. The other is a recipe from Averie Cooks, which has a vanilla cream cheese icing to it.
The season of pumpkin spice lattes might be gone, but that doesn’t mean you can’t add a bit of spice into life during those “off seasons.” POPSUGAR offers a delicate recipe that’s topped with cinnamon and sugar, but can be coated with a maple glaze too. Fresh, Fit & Healthy offers up a pumpkin donut recipe that is not only wheat free, but also it is also free of soy, nuts, fruit, gluten, dairy, and sugar.
