If you all know me, then you know I have a major sweet tooth, but combining that sweet tooth with some healthier options does not have to be as hard as you think & these donuts are a perfect example of that!!
I am also all about cutting down time on making great food, without cutting into high sugar levels or anything like that. That’s why I used the Chocolate-Maple-Pretzel high protein peanut butter spread from Nuts N’More as my glaze for these delicious maple donuts.
By using this high protein spread, I added in some healthy fats and extra protein into this recipe, while still keeping to my plan of making these donuts “healthyish.”
So let’s get to the goods!! These bad boys were so easy to whip up & they take no time at all! I’m a huge donut lover & these cover all the basis of sweet, salty, & still being healthy(ish).
