I originally shared this post on National Donut Day. As I have learned new things about feeding my picky eater, I have referenced this post for healthy donuts over and over. I wrote this post when mug cakes were all the rage and the donut pan was not a thing you could order on amazon. Now, that donut pans are easy to find I’m sharing 2 easy ways to make these healthy donuts. You can make them in the oven with a donut pan, or individually as mug cakes in the microwave. Whichever way you decide to make veggie donuts, I always top mine with my Healthy Chocolate Frosting, and then let the kids help decorate them.
If you’ve already jumped on the donut pan trend. Harness your donut pan for good by making a batch of veggie-filled healthy donuts!
If you don’t want to turn on your oven, try this mug cake variation of the healthy donuts. Your veggie-filled donuts are ready in less than 5 minutes for breakfast or a snack. One recipe includes a full delicious serving of veggies.
The first time I post this recipe my daughter (photo on the left) was about 18 months, now my son, also 18 months is enjoying the same recipe. I’ve perfected my frosting a bit more though, so it’s a little messier.
