I like donuts.. alas we don’t have a donut pan so we rarely have them. A little creativity led to the use of our mini bundt pan for this recipe. Nothing against real fried donuts (especially ones fried in healthy coconut or palm oil), but who has time to fry in the morning? Too much mess for me.
An avid baker may notice the resemblance of the recipe proportions to that of your average everyday muffin.. well, let’s just keep that our secret.
Whole Wheat Maple Donuts
- 2 cups white whole wheat flour
- 1 tsp b. soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 Egg
- 1/2 cup whole milk yogurt
- 1/2 cup whole milk
- 1/3 cup maple syrup
- grating of nutmeg
- 4 tblsp melted coconut oil or melted butter
- (cinnamon sugar mix to sprinkle on top if desired)
Mix dry ingredients, add wet ingredients. Scoop batter into a greased donut pan or mini-bundt. Bake at 350° for approx 12-15 minutes until toothpick comes out clean. If desired top with melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
Notes: You will need two pans or two batches. If you have hungry people waiting on you and only one pan, feel free to make one batch of pretty donuts and a second pan of mini “muffin” donuts.
