Low-Calorie Donut Recipe

Low-Calorie Donut Recipe

Do you like donuts? I love them.

I can't say I've met very many people who don't.

Now, do I eat donuts? Not very often.

Donuts are high in sugar, fat, and calories, making it hard for me to really justify eating them consistently as a part of my healthy lifestyle.

I'm not saying it's bad to have a donut or some sweets from time to time...

But the macros do make it difficult.

...and while I do believe the hunt for the perfect healthy donut recipe is still underway...

I was able to come up with a simple, low-calorie donut recipe that carries much less guilt than an actual donut.

If you ever find yourself cravings something sweet, give this a try!

Level-1 Chocolate Donuts

Low-Calorie Chocolate Donuts

Servings: 12 (1 Donut = 1 Serving)


The Dough

  • 1 Scoop of Level-1 Milk Chocolate
  • 1 1/4 Cup of Self-Rising Flour
  • 1/3 Cup of Cocoa Powder
  • 3/4 Cup of Sugar Alternative
  • 6 Tbsp of Avocado Oil
  • 1 1/4 Cup of Unsweetened Almond Milk

The Glaze

  • 3 Cups of Powdered Sugar Alternative
  • 1/3 Cup of Cocoa Powder
  • 1/4 Cup of Unsweetened Almond Milk


For this recipe, you will need a donut pan or a donut maker. For the sake of keeping it simple, I'll assume you'll be using a pan and oven for this recipe.

1. Preheat the oven to 350℉. Grease a 12-count donut pan with cooking spray and set it aside.

2. In a large bowl, combine the Level-1, self-rising flour, cocoa powder, and sugar alternative. After you've mixed them well, add the avocado oil and almond milk. If your batter is too thick, add a tbsp of milk at a time until you reach the desired consistency.

3. Transfer your donut batter into a large ziplock bag and cut one corner to make a piping bag to distribute the batter evenly amongst your donut pan.

4. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until you can poke the donuts with a toothpick and it comes out clean.

5. While your donuts are baking, mix all of the ingredients for your glaze into a bowl until it's well combined. If the glaze is too thick, add a splash of milk at a time until you reach the desired consistency.

6. Let the donuts cool for 10 minutes, then top with your glaze.
