Chocolate Glazed Baked Chocolate Donuts (& a donut pan GIVEAWAY!) + Weekly Menu

chocolateglazeddonuts5

Oh, hi. Yes, I’ve been sleeping in…and attending to very important matters like feeding my donut obsessed self these nearly guilt-free Chocolate Glazed Baked Chocolate Donuts. At 93 calories a piece, there’s no denying they will be the best spent calories of the day.

Week one on the job was great. I really, really love my new position thus far. Everyone is so nice and I feel like I am going to develop my skills as a dietitian. Not only will I be making the recommendations for IV vitamin D (a drug called Zemplar) in an effort to keep my patient’s bones healthy, but I will get to learn about IDPN (IV nutrition for dialysis patients so they are getting nutrition while they run treatment three days a week). This is all very exciting stuff in my little nutrition world. 😀

And I’m excited, too, about all things going on with this here, the blog (P.S. preventionrd.com will be getting a “face-lift” come February!). January has been a booming month, and I think I can attribute that to the healthy goals people set come the new year. Despite the cold, snowy, I-just-wanna-snuggle-on-the-couch-and-read-a-good-book weather, this time of year is filled with good intentions to eat well and be a healthier, happier you.

chocolateglazeddonuts1I think that’s a great goal any time of year…but there’s something very motivating about having so many people working towards the very same goals, at the very same time.

People, we are so in this together.

I have “seen” new faces on Facebook (I’m lovin’ it). I’ve had the chance to check out new healthy cooking and living blogs from the comments and emails you’ve sent my way, or tweeted my direction. And more than ever, I feel that those coming to my little corner of the web are actually trying and loving the food that I prepare, photograph, and post about. For me, it doesn’t get any better than that — so, thank you.

Chocolate Glazed Baked Chocolate Donuts adapted from Milk & Honey and Stephanie Cooks

Donuts:
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup sugar
1 Tbsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 egg
1/2 cup almond milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 Tbsp canola oil
3 Tbsp unsweetened applesauce

Chocolate Glaze:
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 tsp canola oil
1 Tbsp corn syrup
1/4 tsp vanilla extract

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees and coat a donut pan liberally with cooking spray.

Stir together flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Add the egg, milk, vanilla, oil, and applesauce; stir together for 1 minute.

Fill each cavity in the pan 1/2 of the way full with batter. Bake for 7 to 8 minutes or until the donuts spring back when lightly touched. Cool completely.

Meanwhile, melt the chocolate in a microwave safe bowl. Add the corn syrup and oil and microwave in 20 second increments, stirring in between. Stir in the vanilla. Dunk each donut into the glaze and allow to set. Yield: 14 donuts.

Nutrition Information (per donut): 93 calories; 3.4 g. fat; 15 mg. cholesterol; 157 mg. sodium; 15.2 g. carbohydrate; 1.9 g. fiber; 1.1 g. protein

Result: Oh my yum! I slimmed down this recipes bunches and it was still delicious! The glaze makes it. These come together quickly and are good for several days afterwards. Is there anything better than a chocolate glazed chocolate donut…for under 100 calories a piece? Nah.

Before I get to the good stuff, here’s a weekly menu…

    Yum, I’m still all about eggnog 🙂 Your donuts look delicious!

  2. January 21, 2012 / 11:30 am

    I’m too distracted by the donuts to think of any else. These are making my mouth water! I seriously don’t know why I don’t own a donut pan!

    Definitely the Baked Apple Cinnamon!!! Love all the recipes you post!

  8. January 21, 2012 / 11:45 am

    Seriously, these look amazing! I need to make those eggnog donuts. I still have some eggnog frozen from Christmas so I can enjoy them year-round!

  9. January 21, 2012 / 11:53 am

    It’s a hard choice between the chocolate and apple cinnamon donuts. I think I’d have to try both!

  10. Rebecca
    January 21, 2012 / 11:54 am

    Definitely love chocolate and that is why I would make the chocolate glazed baked chocolate donuts!

    The baked apple cinnamon doughnuts look phenomenal! If I ever get a donut pan I will totally make them! In the meantime I’ve been making awkward-looking donuts on a baking sheet.

    January 21, 2012 / 12:22 pm

    Mmmmm, all of those donuts sound amazing, but I think if I had to pick one it’d be the chocolate chip donut, mmmmmmmmmm! 🙂

    Double chocolate donuts from today–probably would use chocolate sprinkles to make triple chocolate!

    I’ve made the pumpkin spice donuts with chocolate glaze and they are amazing! I’d like to try out the apple cinnamon donuts.

  21. January 21, 2012 / 12:46 pm

    Awesome pan! I would so make those baked apple-cinnamon doughnuts…they sound totally perfect for breakfast! 🙂

  22. January 21, 2012 / 12:49 pm

    I love chocolate chip anything so I would definitely try the chocolate chip ones. Yum!

  23. January 21, 2012 / 12:52 pm

    I love orange anything, so I think I would make the orange ones first, closely followed by apple cinnamon. I love donuts…they are my highest ranked “I shouldn’t be eating this food.” But your pictures look so amazing!

  24. Jennifer
    January 21, 2012 / 12:52 pm

    Oh, my. If I had a donut pan I would try all of your recipes! They all look so good. But I think the first one I would make is the “Healthy” Baked Chocolate Chip Donuts. YUM!

    Oh, and these look heavenly!

    Tie between eggnog & pumpkin spice – i still haven’t gotten over either seasonal flavor!

  33. January 21, 2012 / 1:43 pm

    Pretty sure I would try all of them 🙂 But I think the chocolate chip is first on my list.

  34. January 21, 2012 / 1:44 pm

    That’s a really tough decision! I’d probably start with the pumpkin spice and then make my way through the rest -one delicious donut at a time!!

    Hey! I read your blog pretty much daily! I love you recipes (especially the tikka masala. I’m a big Indian fan). I finally felt the need to comment when you mentioned donut pan because I’ve seen all your donuts recipes and would love to try them, but alas, no donuts pan! I would most likely try the pumpkin spice or apple cinnamon. In fact, I’d definitely try both! Thanks for offering the giveaway 🙂

  56. January 21, 2012 / 6:00 pm

    Baked eggnog donuts for sure. I’m an eggnog freak. Never understood why it’s not a year round treat. Your photos are gorgeous!

  57. January 21, 2012 / 6:15 pm

    oooo, it’s a toss-up between the pumpkin spice and the apple cinnamon. I would love to try both! Hubby has been bugging me to make donuts too, but I don’t want to fry them!

    Chocolate Chip! I’d have to save one and send the rest to work with my husband so I didn’t eat them all. YUM DONUTS!

    Oh wow! That’d be a tough one….it’s a tie between the Chocolate Chip & the Pumpkin Spice!

  73. Jessica
    January 21, 2012 / 9:19 pm

    I really cannot decide! All of them look so extremely delicious, but if I had to pick one, it would definitely be either these chocolate glazed chocolate donut or the chocolate chip ones! guilt-free way to enjoy chocolate desserts for breakfast? I’m in!

    HA! I will leave this one to your other readers. Nick and I have the WORST sweet tooth and I can’t even imagine life with a donut pan in our house!! Scary (it’ already bad enough with the ice cream maker). I’m impressed with the stats of these donuts though, only 15 grams of carb and less than 100 calories?! Damn. Not bad.

    Glad your job is going well, so far. You get to do TPN for dialysis patients?? Seriously, I’m impressed. I’d love to follow you for a day.

    Can’t wait for the facelift! Who are you hiring to do it? I need a change on my blog.

  91. January 22, 2012 / 9:16 am

    If I won the donut pan (which I was seriously thinking about yesterday how badly I want one), I would most likely make these donuts because they look fantastic and they’re right above me…well, I wish they were right above me in real life and not a computer screen hahah!

    I’m so glad you liked these! I will definitely try your spin on them when I make them again. As far as which donut I’d like to try, you know I loved the blueberry orange ones so next I’d like to try the chocolate chip!

  114. January 22, 2012 / 1:33 pm

    Yum! The Apple Cinnamon ones, for sure!

    I have already tried the orange glazed blueberry. The only problem with them was that they were too good! I ate 4! I think I will try these as soon as I get some almond milk. Thanks for the great recipes!

    Apple Cinnamon! Tons of apple orchards in MI, the donuts would be an AMAZING use of apples in the fall.

  119. January 22, 2012 / 2:37 pm

    100 calories each? What, I must try them! Of course, having a donut pan would help 😉 I’d try the pumpkin ones first 🙂

    I found your website on foodgawker and I LOVE it! Tomorrow is my husband’s birthday and I am going to surprise him with your apple cinnamon doughnuts, the chocolate doughnuts, and your pumpkin doughnuts tomorrow to take in to work! Can’t wait to get to know your blog better!

    Yum, I would try maple cinnamon sugar donuts and my son would love just cake glazed. My 13 year old has been bugging me to buy the donut maker that is advertised on TV but I keep giving in because of the calories. Now that I have your recipes I need this pan so I can make your special ones. 🙂

    Chocolate chip donuts, hands down. Were there other options? I think my mind only saw the words “chocolate chip” and didn’t process anything else. : )

    Chocolate chip donut for sure! My love of chocolate makes that an easy decision 🙂 Love the giveaway!

  129. January 22, 2012 / 7:11 pm

    As you’ve heard me say a million times, I really need a donut pan. Because of YOU. Since I’m a chocolate lover, I’d most likely make these ones you just posted or the chocolate chip ones! Crossing my fingers 🙂

    I would most definitely try the pumpkin spice and I’d try it with the puree from the pumpkins I grew in my garden 🙂

  136. January 22, 2012 / 11:12 pm

    I’d be most likely to try the pumpkin spice with chocolate glaze or these chocolate with chocolate glaze. I adore cake donuts and since loosing 62 pounds in 2011 I haven’t had one in over a year. But the numbers you are getting would pretty easily slip into my nutrition guidelines. Thank you!

  137. January 22, 2012 / 11:22 pm

    MMMM I would definitely love to try the pumpkin spice ones!

  138. January 22, 2012 / 11:25 pm

    I am desperate for a donut pan. I can’t find one anywhere, and should I ever get my hands on one, I’d be making the apple cinnamon donuts first. Apple and cinnamon is one of my favorite combinations.

    And btw, I’m so glad your first week went well. Starting a new job is so nerve racking.

    orange glazed blueberry are so different from what i would normally make that I think that’s the best way to start!

  143. January 24, 2012 / 12:22 pm

    OMG….I would make these donuts. Soooooooooooo gorgeous, I can’t stop looking/drooling/dreaming about them. Send me and cookie some puh-pllllllllllleeeeeease!!!!!

    Plus, I can’t wait to see your new makeover…how exciting for Prevention RD!

  144. January 25, 2012 / 7:24 pm

    I would definitely try all of them but I think I would try these ones first. They look so delicious and they are less calories than a special k bar!

  145. Jennifer

    Are these made in a regular size donut pan (i.e. 6 donuts per pan) or the mini donut size? I’m hoping for regular, but just want to be sure. Thanks!

      Jennifer: Yep – regular-sized! I would say they’re about 3 1/2-inch diameter 🙂

    I tried the chocolate glazed donuts today and really had a hard time with the glaze, it seemed a bit chunky and I was scared to keep microwaving it because I didnt want to burn it 🙂 Not sure what I did wrong. I think next time I will just buy a chocolate glaze frosting!! Thanks for the recipe!

    • Melanie
      February 20, 2013 / 10:53 am

      This happened to me too! I LOVE the look of your glaze so I tried making it twice, and both times it got really chunky and thick when I added the oil and corn syrup. Tastes delicious, but any thoughts on the texture? Your glaze looks so perfect and I’d loved to replicate it!

      • Nicole, RD

        Hi Melanie! Heat the chocolate and then add the oil versus heating them together – I think that might work better 🙂

          One more note: if it still seems to be clumping up, add just a bit more oil. Wax is an option, too 🙂 Paraffin wax can be found near the canning goods in grocery stores.

    Oh my… these look like the best things EVER! Gorgeous pics!!! For some reason, most grocery stores don’t have pastry flour though! I really want to try these, so do you think cake flour would work, and how would the nutritional info be changed? Would it be higher or lower? Thanks!!!

    What can I use in place of corn syrup? Can I use agave? I am using the glaze to put on your pumpkin buttermilk donuts!

  150. February 2, 2013 / 8:50 am

    These are very good! I halved the recipe and just used a powdered sugar glaze on them. The texture is very close to a regular donut 😀

      Not mini, but on the smaller size of average. 3 1/2-4 inch diameter?
