November 11, 2018

It’s been a while since I made a donut recipe, one of my favorite things to bake up so that needed to change 😉 Say hello to these delicious and easy to make chocolate glazed donuts. Just 4 smart points each on WW freestyle and easily worked into your day, so yes you can have your donut and eat it too! Hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

Chocolate glazed donuts
Recipe type: Baking
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 6
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • ½ cup milk (I used 1%)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ½ cup flour
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ⅓ cup confectionary sugar (icing sugar)
  • ¼ tsp vanilla
  • 2 Tbsp warm water
  1. Preheat oven to 350F, spray a 6 hole donut tin with some nonstick spray.
  2. In a bowl whisk your egg with the sugar, add in milk and vanilla and stir.
  3. Mix in your flour, cocoa powder and baking powder, mix well then pour batter into donut tin.
  4. Bake in the oven for 16 minutes, let cool for 5 minutes.
  5. To make your glaze use something that will be good to dip the donuts in, I used a small flat plate with raised sides. Mix your confectionary sugar, vanilla and water till sugar is all dissolved. Dip both sides off donuts into glaze and then transfer to a wire rack with something underneath to catch the glaze that will drop off *Note when calculating points and nutritional info I only accounted for ¼ cup of icing sugar as a lot of the glaze will drop off.
  6. Let glaze dry, store donuts in a sealed container, best in the fridge and they will freeze well.

      The glaze will add a point, so 3

    What would the points be if you don’t do the glaze?

    I am so glad I found your blog! I really hate the taste of artificial sweeteners (and some make me sick!) so it’s nice to see that all the recipes I’ve read so far use real sugar…but are still low points! These look delicious – I’m going to have to borrow my sister’s donut pans I think!

      Hi Meghan, I’m glad you found me too 🙂 yeah I am the same way, most artificial sweeteners upset my tummy 🙁 I have a few on here that I tried for a sponsored post but the majority of them use real sugar, just less 🙂 I hope you enjoy the recipes!

    Made these this morning. They came out lovely! Not overly sweet, like a mini bundt donut. These and your bubble ups are our faves! Thanks for always sharing your amazing recipes.
