Healthy baked chocolate doughnut recipe

Posted on

Believe it or not, healthy doughnuts DO exist if you do a few clever ingredient-swaps as well as changing the way you cook them. Yes, baked doughnuts taste just as amazing (if not more) as fried. Don’t believe us? Well, the proof will be in the pudding. (Get it?)

Try out this yummy chocolate doughnut recipe below and tell us what you think!

You will need:

A baking tray with doughnut moulds.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of rolled oats (use gluten free oats for a gluten free doughnut!)
  • 1 tbsp of natural cocoa powder
  • ¾ tsp of baking powder
  • ⅛ tsp of baking soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 egg
  • 80ml of fat free plain yoghurt
  • 50g of sweetener
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200c/400f (gas mark 6)
  2. Blend the rolled oats in a food processor until they are fine in texture.
  3. Add to bowl with the cocoa powder, baking powder, soda and salt, and mix well.
  4. Mix the egg, yoghurt, sweetener and vanilla extract together in a separate bowl and whisk until smooth.
  5. Add to the oat mixture and mix together until all the ingredients are combined.
  6. Spoon the mixture into the holes of the doughnut tray (make sure you grease beforehand if the tray is not non-stick). You want to fill them so each is about ¾ full, so make sure you don’t overfill.
  7. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes. To test if they are cooked all the way through, carefully prick the centre with a toothpick/skewer. If they are cooked then this should come out clean.
  8. Allow to cool slightly and then transfer to a rack.

For the topping

  1. Well this part is up to you! You could melt some dark chocolate (because dark is better right?) and dip each doughnut into it. Or you could make a vanilla glaze by mixing 1/2 cup of powdered sugar, 1 teaspoon milk and a splash of vanilla extract.

Enjoy!
