Whole Wheat Powdered Sugar Donut

even possible? A donut that’s made from wholesome ingredients, easy to make, bakes in under 10 minutes AND less than 100 calories??  According to this recipe from Paula at Salad in a Jar, it is! Check it out..

1 cup white whole wheat flour or unbleached all-purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg, freshly grated
1/4 teaspoon very finely chopped pecans (optional)
1/3 cup milk
1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 egg
2 tablespoons canola or vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
a few drops of almond flavoring

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease  doughnut pan.

2. Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt,  nutmeg and pecans (if using) together in a medium mixing bowl.

3. Whisk yogurt, milk, egg, oil and flavorings together in a separate small bowl. Combine all at once with dry ingredients and stir only until everything is moistened.

4. Spoon batter into pastry bag or quart-size zippered plastic bag.  Seal. Snip small corner of plastic bag and force dough out of hole in a fat rope that encircles each doughnut cup. Fill only 1/2 to 3/4 full or you will lose the hole in the middle of your doughnut. Bake for 9-10 minutes.

5. After removing from the oven, immediately flip pan and dump doughnuts out on a towel or rack. Allow to cool. Just before serving, put donuts in a plastic bag with about 1/2 cup of powdered sugar. Seal bag with doughnuts inside and shake to coat.  Leftover donuts will absorb the sugar and need to be recoated if you want them to be white.
