Toasted coconut donuts

March 8, 2016

I wanted to create a new donut recipe, cause let’s face there can never be enough donut flavors 🙂 I was looking for something sweet, but not too sweet, and I had coconut on my voila..these toasted coconut donuts were made..and they are delicious! Only 4 smart points each and the perfect amount of sweetness 🙂


Toasted coconut donuts
Recipe type: Baking
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 6
4sp or 2pp each
  • ½ cup flour
  • 2 Tbsp white cake mix (this can be replaced with extra flour if you don't keep cake mix in the house, I always do, it keeps well and I love the added sweetness and texture it gives to my donuts)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbsp liquid egg whites
  • ⅓ cup unsweetened almond milk (can substitute with skim if nut allergy)
  • 5 Tbsp toasted sweetened coconut flakes
  • ½ Tbsp honey
  1. Heat oven to broil and toast your coconut by laying on a baking sheet and putting under broil for about 5 minutes checking often to prevent burning. Then set oven to 350F.
  2. In a bowl mix your flour, baking powder, cinnamon and cake mix. Stir in your egg whites, milk and vanilla. Mix in 3 Tbsp of your toasted coconut, leaving the other 2 aside for topping. Pour out into a sprayed 6 hole donut pan.
  3. Bake in oven for 14-16 minutes.
  4. Melt your honey in a small dish in microwave for 25 seconds, use a pastry brush and brush onto donut tops, then sprinkle coconut on, I do one at a time.
  5. Makes 6 donuts at 4sp or 2pp each.
