Healthier Lemon Poppy Seed Donuts

These donuts are made with Swerve® and almond milk. They are baked, rather than fried, which makes them healthier than a regular donut. They are delicious, quick, and very easy to make.



Step: 1

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray 2 donut pans with nonstick cooking spray.

Step: 2

Place granulated sugar substitute and lemon zest in a bowl. Mix until zest is fully coated with sugar. Add egg, butter, lemon juice, vanilla, and lemon extract. Add almond milk and mix until well incorporated.

Step: 3

Sift flour, baking powder, and salt together. Add to the sugar mixture. Fold in poppy seeds. Divide the batter evenly among the donut pans.

Step: 4

Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into a donut comes out clean, 10 to 12 minutes. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes. Remove from the pans and cool completely.

Step: 5

While the donuts cool, make the icing. Mix powder sugar substitute, lemon juice, almond milk, lemon zest, vanilla, and salt together in a bowl. Set a rack over a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Dip donuts into the icing and place on the rack until glaze sets, 2 to 3 minutes.
