Hello All! I'm here to give you a quick introduction to my lovely student intern, Adrienne, who has been a huge help to me these past few months in translating ideas into actual recipes in the kitchen. From the get-go, it was clear that Adrienne had a love for baking and I've enjoyed learning a few new tricks in the kitchen from her. Today, she's here as a guest author to share with you all her amazing Maple Glazed Oatmeal Doughnuts Recipe. Trust me when I say it's definitely one recipe you're going to want to give a try!
Everyone has that one guilty pleasure that they just cannot give up. Mine is sweets. I have the biggest sweet tooth and doughnuts are one of my favorite indulgences. I could probably bet that most people would agree with me. Of course, when most people think of doughnuts they think deep fried dough smothered in rich icing, but "indulgences" don’t always have to be completely horrible for you. My boyfriend recently asked me to make him a healthier baked good, and my mom had just given me a doughnut cooking sheet so I thought it was the perfect opportunity to break it in. This recipe has a healthy spin to a traditional doughnut by adding oatmeal and baking them in the oven. So in honor of National Doughnut Day, I'm here to share with you one of my favorite recipes!
Doughnuts are normally seen as empty calories and a horrible way to start your day. Not with these doughnuts though! By using oatmeal, whole wheat flour and applesauce, they are a lower in sugar and calories compared to a customary doughnut. They are a great, healthy alternative to the traditional sugary confection but will still fulfill your sweet tooth for the day.
