Easy & Light Donut Recipe

Easy & Light Donut Recipe

Here you have an easy and healthy donut recipe. I tried it because I was curious about, and I loved it.

It is light and it is healthy because it is baked instead of fried, and prepared with brown sugar, ricotta cheese and whole wheat flour.

It is also easy to prepare and really fit that desire for sweet treats, especially for breakfast. But I also ate it during the afternoon with just coffee, and it matches perfectly too.

I was so curious that went out searching for donuts molds. I had to visit three markets before finding them in a specialized shop, but I am sure I’d continue to search as I was so decided to prepare them. I was doubting regarding the size of the mold. There were bigger ones as seen on the original recipe, but I chose a medium size and it resulted to be the perfect portion for me.

I used 72% cocoa chocolate, so no extra sugar. But it’s up to you. They may come very well too with white chocolate and you can also add chopped almonds, hazelnuts or pistachios to the melted chocolate.
