Fall is almost here, and these “doughnuts” are perfect to get you into the spirit. They’re baked and loaded with fiber and minerals like manganese and iron.
Bonus: they take less than 30 minutes, start to finish.
Honey is the only sweetener in these bad boys, and a solid dose of ground flaxseed gives them a really nice texture (and healthy fats). Whole wheat flour bakes can get dry, but the applesauce keeps these guys nice and fluffy. (You were worried I was going to use that “m” word just now, weren’t you?! Don’t worry, I got you.)
Make them with the glaze or without – they’re delicious either way! Each doughnut is only 200 calories but packs a punch of healthy nutrition, like more than 5 grams of fiber per serving, and more than 10% of the average daily calcium and iron need.
The recipe makes 6 baked doughnuts. Because the glaze is yogurt-based, you do need to keep the finished product in the fridge. They’ll hold up for about 3-4 days in a tightly sealed container.
Meal-prep them for breakfast, or sneak them in as a mid-afternoon snack with that second cup of coffee (tea? What’s your poison?). Post a pic of yours on Instagram after you make them and be sure to tag @runliftrd! I can’t wait to see your favorite way to eat them.
