Who doesn't love doughnuts? I have fallen in love with Trader Joe's new cashew meal. It adds a touch of sweetness and helps keep gluten free baking from drying out. I often feel guilty making sugary treats for my kids so adding a nut meal protein helps make these treats healthy. I also like to use coconut sugar instead of refined sugar when I bake. It is low glycemic and works nicely in this recipe.

    I would say they are healthy. They have cashew meal for protein, eggs, banana, and no refined sugar. I hope this answers your question about health.

    Great idea, I can't wait to give it a try. But how are doughnuts healthy eating?

    I am loving my mini doughnut maker. It is fun to come up with healthy doughnuts my kids will love. You can find more yummy recipes (both mine and from the chefs I interview) on my site www.fearlessdining.com
