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.

Lemon coconut donuts

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 16 minutes
Total Time 26 minutes
Servings 6
4SP blue, green & purple/3PP each

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp egg whites (I use from the carton)
  • 2 Tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup milk (I used 1%)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3/4 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 

  • Preheat oven to 350F, spray a 6 hole regular sized donut pan with some non stick spray.
  • In a bowl mix your egg whites, 2 Tbsp lemon juice, milk and vanilla.
  • Stir in your flour, sugar, baking powder, lemon zest and 2 Tbsp of your coconut (leave rest aside for topping)
  • Mix well and divide batter into your donut pan.
  • Bake in oven for 14-16 minutes untill donuts seem golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and let cool, meanwhile mix your icing sugar with a little fresh squeezed lemon juice, you should only need about 1/2 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.
  • 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.
