Whole Wheat Donuts!!

100_4667Rising dough that is about to become something so delicious it should be a sin.

This is about how thick you should roll out the dough. Break off a portion of dough and keep the rest covered as you work. I used a canning ring and the lid of a water bottle to cut the donuts. Prehistoric I know!

After you roll them out and cut them, flour the counter and allow the donuts to rise.

Deep fry in coconut oil. If you can’t get coconut oil you can use peanut oil. However coconut oil is by far a better product, and the taste is amazing!

These are NOT burned……..I repeat……these are NOT burned.

Whole grain donuts will turn out darker than white flour donuts. It’s okay……….do not be alarmed!

I have to admit that the glaze on these donuts goes against everything I teach! Please forgive me for even posting such evils on my blog. The glaze is made with powdered sugar (ugh!)  It has powdered sugar, hot water and almond extract. No particular measurments. The almond extract really makes for great flavor, you can use vanilla instead if you want to.

You can also frost them with Chocolate Frosting or Cream Cheese Frosting.

  2. Despite the glaze(which I’m sure tastes great) this is a SUPER contribution to society. I plan to try the recipe and give it to people in my aerobics classes because its been running joke for the past week.
