Caramel pretzel donuts

January 30, 2017

Before the holiday season approached I was given a whole bunch of Weight Watcher food products from the kind folks at WW Canada to see if I could maybe get inspired to create something. I was eating one of the packs of mini pretzels one night when it dawned on me that it had been awhile since I made a new donut recipe…so say hello to these delicious caramel pretzel donuts.. OMG I am in love with these donuts, they are the perfect salty & sweet baked up treat, just 3 smart points each. I’ll be thinking of some other fun recipes to create with other WW food products so stay tuned!

Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 6
 
3SP/3PP
Ingredients
  • ½ cup + 2 Tbsp flour
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbsp egg whites (I use liquid egg whites in the carton)
  • 2.5 Tbsp sugar free caramel sauce (pic below)
  • ⅓ cup milk (I used 1%)
  • 2 bags weight watchers mini pretzels (18g bags)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F, spray your 6 hole regular donut pan with non stick spray.
  2. In a bowl mix together your flour, sugar, baking powder and soda.
  3. Stir in your milk, egg whites, vanilla and 1 Tbsp of caramel sauce (leave the 1.5 Tbsp out for now)
  4. You want to crush one bag of your pretzels into crumbs, I opened one end and then used a heavy glass to make them into crumbs. Stir into your donut batter.
  5. Spread batter evenly into your 6 hole donut tin.
  6. Bake in oven for approx 12 minutes.
  7. Once donuts are cooled down carefully remove from tin using a knife around the edges.
  8. Use 2 plates and on one add your 1.5 Tbsp caramel sauce and add 1 tsp of water, mix well.
  9. Crush your other bag of pretzels into crumbs and spread out onto another plate. Dip donuts in the caramel then into the pretzel crumbs.
  10. Makes 6 donuts at 3 smart points each (3PP) best stored in a sealed tight container.

    Ohhhhh man they look wonderful!! Can you tell me if you have ever made these in the mini donut pan? That is what I have home and I’d love to know how many SP’s for the minis. Thank you for all the WONDERFUL recipes. I’m making your mini pepperoni & bacon pizza muffins tomorrow. Will be a great afternoon snack to take to work with some 0 SP marinara.

      Hi Kristine, hope you enjoy the pizza muffins, they are so good!! I am not sure on the donut maker, it should still work and my guess is you would get 3 mini’s to 1 reg maybe? In which case they would be 1 point, but if you only get 2 I’d give them a 2 point value, hope it works out for you 🙂

    what would work in place of the weight watcher pretzels? I don’t have those. Could I just weigh 18g of some mini pretzels? Thanks! So excited to make these.
