The best healthy maple donuts

Maybe it’s the effect of my summer in Canada or it could be that I’m just feeling nostalgic, Canadian thanksgiving maybe? Whatever it is, maple syrup is always, always a great idea, especially when it involves maple donuts. These maple donuts are oven-baked, soft, healthy, dairy-free, refined sugar-free and made with wholemeal flour are possibly the best thing you will bake this year. It will take you less than 10 minutes to put the ingredients together, and exactly 12 minutes to bake. A perfect quick treat to bake on a Saturday (or Sunday evening, depending on where you are in the world) for a quick breakfast or snack throughout the week. Check it out!
