Healthy Chocolate Glazed Donuts

I have sweet tooth all day, every day. There I said it! All day I dream about food, sorry lets be honest, DESSERTS! I dream about desserts and how I can make them healthy or guilt free.


I have tried so many donut recipes and can’t seem to find any that actually taste like a “real” donut, you know, the ones that are deep fried from one of those hole in the wall, 24 hour donut shops. But then I discovered this lovely blogger on instagram @fitseed. I adapted one of her donut recipes and it has now become my all time favorite “healthy” donut recipe! So thank you love blogger girl for rocking my donut world! 

Anyway, here’s the recipe I tried and they turned out beautiful and delicious! 



  • 1 very ripe Banana
  • 1/2 Cup Almond Flour
  • 3 Tablespoons Carob Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla 
  • 3 Eggs or Flax Egg for my vegan friends
  • 1 Tablespoon Agave
  • 1 Teaspoon Coconut Oil (Melted)


  • 1/2 Cup Carob Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla 
  • 1 Teaspoon Coconut Oil
  • 1/2 Scoop Vanilla Protein Powder
  • 1 Spoonful Almond Butter
  • 3 Tablespoons Almond Milk

DIRECTIONS: Preheat Oven to 350 and prep donut mold with coconut oil (or whatever non stick spray you prefer) mix all dry ingredients for the donuts together. In a separate bowl, mash the banana up with a fork. Add banana to dry ingredients a little at a time. Then add remaining ingredients. Mix very well and pour into donut molds. Bake for 12-18 mins. Mine took 13 mins and the original recipe from @fitseed said 30 mins, every oven is different. While baking prepare your glaze. In a small sauce pan melt almond butter and coconut oil. Add half of your almond milk and then add remaining ingredients. If consistency is what you desire, no need to add the rest of the milk, if not then add and let sit until donuts cool. Glaze and enjoy! I topped my donuts with shredded coconut, peanuts and cookies and cream quest bar!!
