I love looking for new recipes to try. My follow a couple of different blogs but really find myself skimming more over Pinterest. I love all to look at new recipes and then I never actually make them as they say. I think how I can change them to make them a little healthier or if I don’t have the ingredients, what I could use instead. So here are two doughnut recipes based off of Chocolate Covered Katie’s blog.
1/3 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
2 tbsp applesauce
1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
pinch cardamom or cinnamon
1/2 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen-thawed
Mix all wet ingredients together. In a larger bowl, mix flour, salt and baking powder. Add wet ingredients and mix. Add in blueberries and mix carefully. Put into a prepared doughnut sheet or muffin tin and bake at 350°F for 16 minutes.
Turn out and let cool.
Serves 6 for 4 smartpoints each
I also made the same doughnuts with a slight variation. I used chocolate almond milk instead of the regular and I added a tablespoon of mini chocolate chips instead of blueberries. Next time I will add in a tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa to give it more color. My kids are tricked by colors.
