They sounded amazing, and they WERE. The texture was perfect. If I didn’t tell the person eating it what it was, they would have thought it was an unhealthy cake donut! (But the secret: they are healthier!)
Not to mention the flavor is phenomenal. The chai spices in the donut really stand out, and the cinnasugar glaze adds just the right amount of sweetness.
Recipe rating: 💛💛💛💛💛
What’s in it? 💫Happy Healthy Hint: I highly recommend grinding whole cardamom and nutmeg. I ground the cardamom in a small coffee grinder, and shaved the nutmeg with a micro plane. (Doing this makes the donut’s flavor and aroma DIVINE.)🌟
📝I made 3⃣ changes to the original recipe:
*Can’t make your own flour? Use store bought Whole Wheat Pastry Flour.
2⃣~ Surprise, surprise✨ I replaced the sugar🍬, but this time with Truvia Baking Blend**!
**This was my first time using Truvia Baking Blend and I was very happy with it! It added the perfect amount of sweetness and didn’t have a weird taste.
✏️NOTE: replacing sugar with Truvia has a unique ratio–see below⬇️.
3⃣~ I replaced soy milk🚫 because it’s on my out list. It is considered to be more processed than other milks like almond milk. I used Silk Unsweetened Almond Milk***.
***I love this almond milk because not only is it only 3⃣0⃣ calories in a cup, but it doesn’t contain carageenan❌ (an iffy ingredient that can cause inflammation💔 which can lead to heart disease and cancer. It’s found in many foods including dairy-free milks–so read your ingredients!)
4⃣~ The recipe had 2⃣ toppings for the donuts, but I made up a “Cinnasugar Glaze” that combined them together.
- 1/4 cup powdered sugar
- 2-3 Tbsp Silk Unsweetened Almond Milk
- 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
👍The baking time and temp was perfect.
