I knew I was long overdue for a new donut recipe! Donuts are one of my favorite things to whip up and one of the first things I started baking in my kitchen,  I love coming up with new flavor combinations. These coconut lemon donuts are so sweet and delicious, definitely hit the spot when craving a sweet baked treat. Makes 6 donuts at 4 smart points each.

4SP/3PP each
Ingredients
  • 2 Tbsp egg whites (I use from the carton)
  • 2 Tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • ⅓ cup milk (I used 1%)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ¾ cups flour
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1.5 tsp lemon zest
  • 5 Tbsp unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 2 Tbsp icing sugar (confectionery sugar)
  • Extra lemon juice (for icing)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F, spray a 6 hole regular sized donut pan with some non stick spray.
  2. In a bowl mix your egg whites, 2 Tbsp lemon juice, milk and vanilla.
  3. Stir in your flour, sugar, baking powder, lemon zest and 2 Tbsp of your coconut (leave rest aside for topping)
  4. Mix well and divide batter into your donut pan.
  5. Bake in oven for 14-16 minutes untill donuts seem golden brown.
  6. Remove from oven and let cool, meanwhile mix your icing sugar with a little fresh squeezed lemon juice, you should only need about ½ Tbsp of juice , spread out on a flat surface (I used a small square plate) sprinkle your remaining coconut on another flat surface or plate.
  7. Remove donuts from pan, lightly press in the icing mixture then the coconut, you should have enough to cover all 6 donuts, you don't need much and if you need a little more icing/lemon mix then add a little more to your plate, you don't want to soak your donuts in it though.
  8. Makes 6 donuts at 4 smart points each (3 points plus, old WW program)
