Minty Mini Doughnuts

Minty Mini Doughnut

28 calories per cookie, 1 g fat (0 g saturated), 5 g carbs, 0 g fiber, 0 g protein

Now those are some numbers I can live with! Now the trick is to not gobble up handfuls of these and defeat the purpose....


3/4 cup cake flour
3/4 cup white whole wheat flour
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/8 tsp. salt
4 tbsp. unsalted butter, softened
2 egg whites
1 tsp. vanilla extract
vegetable oil cooking spray
2 tbsp. confectioners' sugar
2 tbsp. skim milk


Whisk flours, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a bowl. In another bowl, beat butter and sugar with a hand mixer until light and fluffy; add egg whites and vanilla, and beat until just combined. Gradually stir flour mixture into butter mixture until combined.

Form dough into a log, wrap tightly in waxed paper and refrigerate at least 3 hours.
Heat oven to 350°. Coat 2 cookie sheets with cooking spray. Cut dough into 4 equal pieces; cut each into 16 equal pieces. Roll each piece between fingers to form a 1 1/2- to 2-inch-long log. Pinch together ends of each log to form rings and place doughnuts 1 inch apart on cookie sheets; bake 1 batch at a time until dough puffs, 5 to 6 minutes. Whisk sugar and milk in a bowl until smooth. Dip top of each warm cookie into sugar-milk glaze; press into crushed candy. Let set on wire racks.

Thank you justcookalready for this tasty treat!
