Mom loved Krispy Kreme donuts,
so did my boss at work.
I didn’t get it ~ seemed to me ~ might as well
eat a cup of sugar.
Even mini chocolate chip calories can add up quickly. Recently, I was happy to discover Lily’s chocolate chips, a mere 50 calories per tablespoon.
They’re delicious chocolate chips, they’re sugar-free ~ you won’t be mistaking them for Girardelli’s or Hershey’s, but they are good, natural sweeteners, with that rich deep chocolate taste, and no bitterness. Health food stores sell Lily’s, as well as Whole Foods, and of course, Amazon.
I used Serve brown sugar in the dough, and confectioner’s sugar, mixed with water, and vanilla for the glaze. The taste of the glaze was OK, but I'd prefer a simple dusting of confectioner’s sugar the next time.
Baked donuts aren't the norm, and I’m not saying these have the same texture as the deep-fried version; nonetheless, these baked chocolate donuts are a tasty alternative, they will curb your sweet tooth, and they’re definitely easy to make.
So... here’s to my second attempt at baking donuts ~ if you're like me, you can't resist cake donuts ~ these chocolate gems are packed with flavor, and fewer calories!
Eat one of these donuts, and you can have your chocolate, and eat it too, guilt free!
