I probably should have warned you I was taking a holiday hiatus. I’ve been soaking up every moment of family time imaginable these last few days, leaving no time for anything else. Not even blogging! Shocking I know. ;)
So I return not with a new recipe, per se, but to share a fun new family holiday tradition where I take my favorite brownie mix and turn it into fun festive donuts!
The best thing about these donuts? Only 100 calories! (or 1 WWP/3WWPP if you’re counting) They came out perfectly in the donut pan and actually reminded me of a traditional chocolate frosted without the “frost.” ;)
We made them Christmas Eve morning for a fun breakfast treat and I plan on making them yearly to ward off the husband’s actual trip to the donut shop. A traditional chocolate frosted donut (my drug of choice) has, according to SparkPeople.com, 200 calories and more than 4 times the fat! They are 5WWP/6WWPP. That’s significant enough to justify an extra glass of wine (or 2) for dinner.
Making them was a cinch, but you do need a donut pan. Here’s what we did…
- 2 egg whites
- 1 and 1/4 cup water
- 1 Deep&Velvety Chocolate VitaBrownie Mix (click here to purchase)
Whisk the water and egg whites together until frothy. Mix in the brownie mix to make the batter.
Just to be safe I sprayed the donut pan with some non-stick spray. Add about 2 tablespoons of the batter into each donut space and spread around to cover the circle completely.
Top with sprinkles.
Bake for 10-12 minutes. A toothpick inserted will come out clean.
