From the Krispy Kreme classic glaze to jam or chocolate-filled, everyone loves doughnuts!
But with a summer holiday on the horizon and the rising trend to eat healthier, I decided to go on the hunt for healthy doughnuts and was pleasantly surprised with the unbelievably tasty recipes I found.
They’re all baked, which makes them healthier and the lack of frying results in light and fluffy treats that you can enjoy without the guilt at home or on holiday.
