Whole wheat- Oatmeal Donuts!



Hi everyone! Today’s recipe is a delicious dessert that can be eaten as breakfast as well, and it’s also in the healthier side for desserts,  so if you are  on a diet, and can’t give up  a delicious looking Doughnut, these babies are exactly what you need!

Ingredients:

  • ½ C Whole Wheat Flour
  • ½ C Oatmeal Flour
  • ⅓ C sugar
  • ¼ C + 1 T Milk
  • ¼ C Plain Lowfat Yogurt
  • 2 T Coconut Oil
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Tsp Baking Powder
  • ¼ Tsp Nutmeg
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 2 Tsp Vanilla Extract


To Glaze: 
  • +⅓  cup Melted dark Chocolate


Preheat the oven to 350ºF (180ºC)

Whisk the egg with the milk and vanilla extract, set aside for a minute.

In a large bowl, sift the whole wheat flour, oatmeal flour, baking powder, nutmeg, salt and sugar.  Add in the coconut oil and yogurt, combine until you get a breadcrumb kind of texture.

Pour the egg mixture over the flour mixture and stir just until combined. Do not over mix.  You will have a thick and rich batter. (if it’s extremely thick, add one more tablespoon of milk!)

Pour batter into your donut pan.  And bake at 350ºF for about 8-10 minutes or until cooked.
Donuts should be light golden brown on spring back when you touched.

Let them cool completely before glazing them!

For the Glaze I just melted about ⅓ cup of dark chocolate. Then dip the donut right in the chocolate,  tap it to remove the excess chocolate.  Decorate with color sprinkles or shredded coconut!

Enjoy!
