Notes:

SERVINGS: MAKES 12 DONUTS

🔹PersonalPoints: 1 personal point* each.
*This number shows the PersonalPoints™ range. The points will vary based on your individualized plan.

  1. I prefer to hand mix the batter using a whisk or silicone mixing spoon until the flour streaks disappear.
  2. For the GREEN plan, use 1/4 unsweetened applesauce.
  3. Use either 1/4 unsweetened applesauce or 1/4 non-fat Greek yogurt for the BLUE and PURPLE plans. Because that will not make a difference in points
  4. I recommend using the Gold Medal All Purpose Flour in order for the donuts to be 1 point.
  5. Remember, not all brown sugar substitutes are zero points.

  • Not sure why all the measurements are in imperial except the flour. Could you pls put how much this is in cups? I think it is three quarters of a cup but I made these and the batter was very thin so I added more flour.
