I always thought that making my own donuts would be a pain in the booty, but these are super easy to make! I'm overly excited to share these yummy treats with you! They are nice and dense, yet moist. Although I topped them with a maple glaze and walnuts, you can enjoy them plain or totally switch up the toppings! The best part is that they are actually pretty nutrient dense, making them almost totally guilt free! Perfect to munch on, on a chilly fall morning with coffee, or a healthier dessert option after din din!
