When it comes to comfort food I'm a savoury girl through and through, but there's just something about a good chocolate donut that's hard to turn down. As we all know, homemade treats are almost always a healthier choice than anything from a store or restaurant so recipes like this are so great to have in your back pocket for days you need to satisfy those chocolate cravings, but don't want to go too far. I mean, there's always portion control but have you seen how many calories there are in a coffee shop donut lately?? Yikes.

I absolutely love my donut pan. It's one of my favourite kitchen tools simply because it allows me to make delicious treats like this without having to fry them! These Skinny Double Chocolate Donuts are baked with minimal fat added and they're low in sugar too, which brings out that deep, dark chocolate flavour. They're baked to cake-donut perfection and then smothered in a delicious dark chocolate glaze! You're not going to be able to pass these up!!

Oh, and did I mention that this is a one-bowl recipe? Yep. They're that easy to make. If you don't have a donut pan, you're definitely missing out (this one is really great!) because that's really all that's standing between you and these delicious no-guilt chocolatey treats!

Skinny Double Chocolate Baked Donuts (makes 24 donuts)

You'll need:
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
pinch of salt
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tbsp canola oil
1 cup low fat buttermilk
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract

for the chocolate glaze:
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup powdered sugar
approximately 11 teaspoons milk

canola oil spray for greasing the donut pan

To make:

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, sugar and cocoa powder to a large bowl and whisk them together until they're combined.

Add the buttermilk to the bowl with the dry ingredients, and then add the egg, canola oil, and vanilla.

Use a wire whisk to combine the wet and dry ingredients just until there are no more streaks of the flour mixture. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and add the batter to a large piping bag.

Grease the donut pan with a little bit of canola oil spray and pipe the batter into the donut pan using a piping bag until each of the cups is only about 1/2 full. Be careful not to overfill as this will cause the donuts to rise too high out of the pan and lose their donut shape.

Bake the donuts at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 7-9 minutes until they've puffed up and they spring back to the touch.

You'll likely have to bake these donuts in 2 batches since the recipe makes 24 (that is, unless you're lucky enough to own 2 donut pans!)

While the donuts cool, make the glaze by whisking the cocoa powder and powdered sugar together, adding the milk in a few teaspoons at a time until you achieve the right consistency for dipping.

Once the donuts have cooled completely, dip the tops into the glaze and set the donuts aside so the glaze can dry.

Serve with a tall glass of milk!
