Recipe: Mini Strawberry Donuts

December 9, 2015

Everyone needs these mini strawberry donuts in their life– they’re cute as can be, a guilt-free & gluten-free sweet treat, and less than 150 calories.

Mini anything is A-OK in our books. Mini strawberry donuts? Perfection! Mini just tastes better and is better for you– we really don’t need to overeat, so keep your portions on the smaller side, especially when it comes to sweets! So when we bake treats at home, we like to keep it light and healthy but never sacrifice deliciousness.

 

These donuts just happen to be gluten and nut free, making them easier to digest. You can control your calorie intake too, thanks to Zing™ Baking Blend, which is made with stevia leaf extract and pure cane sugar and has only 5 calories per serving. This unique combination of sweeteners bakes and browns like sugar and our donuts come out perfectly golden with fewer calories to boot. Less sweet-treat calories = more room to GLOW.
