Chocolate Glazed Baked Doughnuts


Nonstick cooking spray
1 cup whole-wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup buttermilk
2 large eggs
1/4 cup honey
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons melted butter

Chocolate Glaze

6 ounces of chocolate chips

I loved doughnuts in all their deep-fried deliciousness but I just can't eat them anymore. I always feel a little sick to my stomach and a whole lot of guilt after putting one down. These baked doughnuts are a healthier, guilt-free alternative. Not exactly what you'll get from the Golden Doughnut down the street, but still a super yummy treat!

Coat your doughnut pan with cooking spray and preheat oven to 425 degrees. 

Combine flours, sugar, baking powder, nutmeg, and salt in a large bowl.  Combine buttermilk, eggs, butter, and vanilla in another bowl and whisk together. Pour liquid mixture into flour mixture until just combined. Fill eat doughnut tin about 3/4 full of batter. Bake for about 4 minutes. 

Melt 6 ounces of chocolate chips and spread on cooled doughnuts. Chill doughnuts for about 30 minutes, or until the chocolate has hardened.
