As you may have noticed, I love to overhaul popular refined or processed foods to make a healthier alternative. I focus on quality, real food ingredients, making them gut friendly, anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense without sacrificing taste.
This is my healthy twist on cinnamon donuts, they have a cake-like texture that melts in your mouth. You can also experiment with different toppings and glazes! Enjoy these donuts without the deep fried vegetable oils and insulin spike regular donuts can give.
I am a big fan of Rapadura sugar, it is a unrefined cane sugar which is dried at low temperatures to maintain nutritional properties and there is no other processing involved, unlike other sugars that can be highly processed, refined and bleached. I buy my Rapadura sugar here.

In another bowl, whisk wet ingredients until combined.
Pour web ingredients into dry mix and stir until combined.
Drop spoonful's of the donut mixture into the pan and spread evenly to fill holes. Bake for 8 - 10 minutes.
Coat donuts with rapadura sugar & cinnamon mixture while warm.
