Treat Tuesday: Cherry Chocolate Whole Grain Donuts

*Adapted from




know about you guys (SEE WHAT I DID THERE?), but we totally celebrated National Donut Day with some homemade, and way healthier baked donuts! I ate two, Brian ate 3, and Bowie grabbed one off the counter and shamefully enjoyed his with his head under our couch. Bad dog.


  • 2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 cup non fat milk
  • 1/2 cup Eggbeaters egg substitute 
  • 1/4 100% real maple syrup 
  • 2 tablespoons melted earth balance 
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract 
  • 1/2 cup drained canned no sugar added cherries  
  • 1 Wilton Donut pan


  • 1 square semi sweet bakers chocolate
  • 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk 


1)Set oven to 400F

2)Mix all dry 


3) Incorporate wet ingredients 

4)Coat donut pan with non stick spray

5)Fill each donut about 2/3 of the way full

6)Bake for about 12 minutes or until donuts are golden brown and nothing sticks to a toothpick when inserted in donut. 

7)Flip donuts out onto cooling rack and let cool

8)Melt frosting 


 in microwave until combined and Delicious. Resist urge to eat this as it’s probably about a million degrees

9) Take cooled donuts in plop them face down in the frosting mix

10) Flip right side over and let the frosting cool and harden a bit

11) Try not to let your dog shame eat them, and enjoy! 

Makes six, mine came out to around 5 WW points per donut

  1. THIS IS OUTRAGEOUS AND MAKES ME WANT TO DIE BUT IT ALSO MAKES ME CONTEMPLATE MY LOVE FOR favorite way to make donuts is the way i make them at camp–with biscuit dough! 😀 SO EASY, fluffy, and you can spread whatever on them you like.
