I’m cheating on something, I don’t know what, but I’m cheating on something with these doughnuts. Go out and get these ingredients, NOW. This recipe is SO simple that you probably have all the ingredients at home. Well maybe, not the doughnut pan, but go get one now! Make this for breakfast, tomorrow! When I first saw this recipe I really wanted to make it, but I never made doughnuts before so I was a little afraid that it may take too long. I was WAY wrong. At least for this recipe. It was so simple and such a short baking time. Thank goodness because our central air decided to stop working today when it’s 90+ plus degrees out and I was baking at 425 degrees. Thankfully, the service guy was able to come out right away and is working on it.


Anyways back to the doughnuts, they are delicious. Guess what, they only have 70 calories in them, YES, only 70 calories.  I’m in love. I’ll never need to eat from said doughnut place again, well maybe that’s not true.


1 1/2 cups of unsweetened applesauce

1 egg

1 tablespoon of canola oil

1/2 cups brown sugar

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

3/4 cup whole wheat flour

2 teaspoons of baking powder

1/2 teaspoon of baking soda

1 teaspoon of vanilla

2 teaspoon of cinnamon, divided

1/4 cup of sugar


  1. Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Combine white sugar and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, mix together and separate. Set aside for later.
  3. Combine applesauce, egg, canola oil and brown sugar into a bowl. Mix well.  Add all the other ingredients in. Mix well, but do not over mix. Spray some canola oil into each mold, then place 3 tablespoons of batter into each doughnut mold. Bake for 8-9 minutes.
  4. Spray tops of doughnuts with canola oil and then dip into cinnamon and sugar mixture.
