This is a healthy, yummy muffin recipe!

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 tbsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup applesauce
1 can pumpkin
1 tbsp. ground flax seed

1 tbsp. (dark) chocolate chips (divided evenly)

Healthy Donut Recipe

Baked Whole Wheat Cake Donut Recipe
Adapted from Hodgson Mill Whole Grain Baking as printed in The Arizona Republic on 4/30/08.

Position a rack in the center of the oven. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Generously coat a donut pan with cooking spray. In a large bowl, whisk together and set aside:

  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons whole-wheat pastry flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

In another large bowl, use an electric mixer to beat together until frothy:

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon unsweetened applesauce or canned pumpkin puree
  • 1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon low-fat buttermilk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Create a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the wet mixture. Using a spoon mix until just combined. Do not overmix. Use a pastry bag or large plastic bag to pipe the mixture into the donut pan. Alternatively, spoon the batter into the molds, but the finished donuts may not appear as even.

Bake 15 to 20 minutes, or until the tops spring back when pressed gently around the edges. Cool in the pan on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Run a knife around the inside of the molds to release the donuts. Invert the donuts on the rack and cool completely, or enjoy warm.

The donuts can be eaten as is, sprinkled with powdered sugar or cinnamon sugar or decorated with your favorite icing and chopped nuts and/or candy sprinkles.

Makes 6 large donuts with 178 calories, 2 grams of fat, 5 grams of protein, and 3 grams of fiber per donut.

Carrot Cake Oatmeal

I love me some oatmeal in the morning, especially since the weather is changing. I found this recipe and I MUST try it!

Carrot Cake Oatmeal
(from Eat Me, Delicious)

Serves 1

1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup soy milk
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup of grated carrot (I think this might’ve been 1 carrot?)
pinch of salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp brown sugar
2 tbsp nonfat plain yogurt
1 tsp maple syrup
1 tbsp chopped pecans
1 tbsp shredded unsweetened coconut

Combine the rolled oats, soy milk, water, carrots and salt in a saucepan. Turn heat to medium and stir occasionally until mixture comes almost to a boil and most of the liquid is absorbed, which takes about 5-7 minutes. When oats are done, stir in vanilla and brown sugar.

While oats are cooking make “icing” by blending 2 tbsp of non-fat plain yogurt with 1 tsp maple syrup. Toast pecans in the toaster oven for a few minuteS (watch carefully).

Pour oats into a bowl and top with coconut, pecans and icing.
