Welcome to Tweaked at Chez Jan de la Dayton....translated to 'tweaked at Jan's house in Dayton'! Sounds fancy, but it's not. If you choose to share a recipe, be kind and give me kudos for it. The pictures are NOT to be taken off this blog unless used in a direct link to this blog. Once upon a time I was a Weight Watchers leader....that chapter is closed. But I still like to eat and bake and don't like the weight that finds its way to me too easily. So I go find delicious-sounding recipes and tweak them. Some recipes, however, just don't turn out right if they're tweaked. I've not posted anything....so far.....that isn't WW friendly. That might change, and I'll warn you if I post something with 'scary' P+ values. For those who don't use substitutions, the ratio for Splenda granulated/sugar is 1:1 and the ratio for egg substitute/eggs is 1/4 cup of egg sub = 1 egg. Now.....let's have some fun in the kitchen!!!

Chocolate Frosted Donuts

What?!?!? Chocolate Frosted Donuts that aren't going to use up almost all my PointsPlus™ by just eating one? You betcha!!!!!  I stumbled upon a donut recipe and thought it sounded really good, but really high in P+ value....so I tweaked the dickens out of it. The next step was to find a donut pan, and that was not an easy task in a small town. We went to a small kitchen shop in a local flea market and there it was! I was such a happy camper!!! These are a chocolate lovers dream!!! You have to go get a donut pan......seriously!!!
CHOCOLATE FROSTED DONUTS
Makes 6 Donuts
1 Donut = 4 PointsPlus™


DONUT:
1/2 cup white whole wheat flour
2 TBSP unsweetened cocoa powder
2 TSPB Splenda granulated
1 1//2 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 cup fat-free egg substitute
1/4 cup fat-free milk
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 tsp canola oil
2 TBSP unsweetened applesauce


FROSTING:
1/4 cup dark chocolate chocolate chips
1/2 tsp canola oil
1 1/2 tsp agave nectar
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 TBSP multi-colored sprinkles

Preheat oven to 450º. Lightly spray donut pan.

In a large bowl, mix flour, cocoa powder, Splenda granulated, baking powder and salt. Add egg substitute, milk, vanilla, oil and applesauce; mix well.

Put batter evenly in pan (about 1/2 full). Bake @7 minutes or until a wooden toothpick comes out clean. Cool completely.

For the frosting: Put the chocolate chips, oil and agave in a microwave-safe bowl. 'Nuke' in 20 second intervals until the chocolate is just melted. Add the vanilla and stir until smooth. Either dip the donuts into the frosting or spread the frosting on the donuts and then sprinkle them with the sprinkles.

Enjoy!!!

This is my new little 'friend', the donut pan. You see it makes 6 donuts. You see the picture above of only 5 donuts? Yup......it was good!!! Now go get a donut pan and bake yourself some chocolately goodness!!!
