Recipe: Grain Free Cinnamon Sugar Baked Donuts (Refined Sugar Free!)

Healthy Baked Cinnamon Donuts Recipe | low fat, gluten free, grain free, paleo, refined sugar free, healthy, clean eating friendly, healthy donut recipes

Lately we have been busssssssssssssy - but even when you're busy, you still need delicious food, right? Of course! In fact, I think you probably need it even more than you usually do. 

Generally speaking, when both Jesse and I are busy with work, I stick to super quick staples and treats tend to fall by the wayside.... well... that was until I came up with this super easy, super fast Healthy Grain Free Baked Donut Recipe.

Donuts don't tend to be something you can whip up in seconds, however, with this recipe you'll have a batch of piping hot donuts in just ten minutes. Give or take a few minutes to mix together the four (yes, just four) ingredients and allow them to cool just a touch (though we tend to skip that part).

How can you get simpler than that?! Piping hot donuts, made in minutes that are actually good for you! In fact, not only are they grain free (and paleo!), they're also gluten free, refined sugar free, clean eating friendly and probably a billion times lower in calories than their fried counterparts too!

But whilst we've previously been eating them straight up or as our Healthy Chocolate Glazed Baked Donuts Recipe, we decided that this donut recipe was just calling to be doused in cinnamon sugar. 

Forget refined sugar and funky flavourings, though. These donuts were keeping their refined sugar free title as we swapped regular sugar for coconut sugar, giving them a hint of caramel like flavour and a melt in your mouth texture. They do look a little darker thanks to the natural colour of the coconut sugar, however, they taste absolutely delicious!

But there was one problem with this recipe, friends... 

You see, now I have no excuses as to why I didn't have time to make something delicious. But that's okay because it means we always have a delicious healthified sweet treat to call on whenever someone pops around unexpectedly or a donut craving strikes!

Let me share the recipe with you! >>

Recipe: The Ultimate Lightened Up Brownies (Gluten Free!)

Over my years of cooking and baking, I've found that everyone has an opinion when it comes to brownies. 

Some like them fudgy, 
some like them chewy, 
some like a crackly top, 
some like them filled with nuts, 
some like them with crispy edges, 
and some (rare) people don't like them at all. 

I guess you could call Jesse and I "Brownie Appreciators" though, because we'll happily take brownies in any shape or form.... though, we do have our preferences. 

You see, a couple of weeks ago I decided I simply needed a brownie with a crackly top and crisp, chewy edges. Nothing else was going to cut it - it had to be exactly that.

So I got to thinking and I set to work on a batch of brownies with a completely different method. They were lightened up a little, but still indulgent enough that one piece was all you needed to drift off to brownie heaven. 

I impatiently waited for them to cook, squealed with delight when I took out of the oven and tapped my foot while they cooled before grabbing a knife and slicing them into little pieces of heaven. 

I took my first bite and succcccccccccccccccccceeeeeeeeeeeeeeesssssssssss! The ultimate brownie had been achieved! 

Though, knowing everyone has a different opinion on brownies, I decided I really did need to share these brownies instead of hoarding them all in a little box and eating them hidden away under my bed so I could be sure that they really were that good.

Little did I know, they were waaaaaaaay better than that good because the fussiest brownie eater of all loved them. I'm talking about my sister, the fussiest, hardest to please critic on the face of the earth who only eats one certain type of boxed brownies or a random recipe she found on the internet 6 years ago. 

She loved them and so did the rest of the SIL family and when they were gone in just a day (except for the secret one I hid away), I knew I had to share them ASAP. 

So let me share this Lightened Up Ultimate Brownie Recipe with you! >>
