Berry Healthy Donuts – Clean Eating Recipe

Berry Healthy Donuts

Who doesn’t love donuts? They are definitely one of my weaknesses so I knew I had to come up with a recipe for healthy donuts. I’m not going to lie, these do not taste like real fluffy, melt in the mouth donuts. But they are delicious and they have the same shape, LOL! The sweetness from the berries and maple syrup are enough to satisfy your sweet tooth. The best part is that they won’t leave you with a sugar rush – or crash.

The kids enjoyed these too and they pack perfectly in a lunchbox. No Ice pack needed.

Oats and Chia Seeds

oat flour

Instead of traditional flour, this recipe uses oats. By grinding oats in a blender, you can make your own oat flour. Oat flour is high in fiber and it boosts your heart health. Because of the high fiber content, it also keeps you fuller longer.

Chia seeds are everywhere these days, but I was never a big fan. i just can’t stand the gelatinous texture. But I do like baking with it because it adds a different, denser consistency to baked goods. Chia seeds are also high in Omega 3’s, protein and fiber. They are also loaded with vitamins and minerals.
