      Hi Lori, yes but they may not rise like a muffin recipe would

  2. another fabulous drizzle recipe! even hubby loved it. calms the sweet tooth but I still wanna eat them all!!!! (Yes they are that good!) πŸ˜‰ thanks drizzle!

  3. How do your donut recipes do if you freeze them after baking? I would love to make a few batches and then freeze to have as a grab and go?

      HI Sue, they should freeze fine, just the same a muffins πŸ™‚ just ones with toppings you might want to leave the topping of..

  5. Love the donut recipes but I’m wondering how you add the batter to the donut pan.

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Sandra, I just use a spoon, I know some pipe out of a bag but I find there is waste using that method and you need all the batter you can get πŸ˜‰

  6. if I use 1 % milk instead of skim would that change the point value?

      Hi Mary, overall for each donut, no it should not change it

  7. These are so good I don’t want Dunkin’ Donuts anymore!!! Thank you SO much. Trying. The chocolate ones next

  9. I’m new to WW and these look yummy, since these were made back in 2016 before the new WW current program are they still 3 points. I’d put it in my recipe builder but don’t know how to add 3 Tbsps of cake mix. TIA

      Hi yes points are the same, only recipes with the zero foods would of changed points

  10. Do you have to use liquid egg whites? And what exactly ARE liquid egg whites, you mean like Egg Beaters?? Can’t you just use regular egg whites since they are zero points??

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Laurie, yes egg beaters, same thing or sure you can use the white of the egg, I made a lot of these recipes that call for egg whites before freestyle came out and eggs still had points, so if following blue or purple you can even use a whole egg

      HI, yes that will work just fine and I think the points would stay the same, it is a small amount you are using anyway
