Baked Chocolate Donuts – 3 SmartPoints

I always like a little sweet treat in the afternoon. The key for me is keeping it low in SmartPoints.

These donuts were perfect for my craving. I made them with sugar free brownie mix…so they aren’t technically donuts. But they’re cute and taste good!

I sprinkled a little powdered sugar on them so my brain thought I was really indulging. One teaspoon of powdered sugar is very low in points and it goes a long way.

To get the batter into the donut pan I simply took a zip up baggie and put it into a glass. Then I poured the batter into it.

I did half of the batter at a time. Then I zipped it up and cut one of the corners off. It made getting it into the donut pan really easy, and not messy.

The pan I used is also great for making bagels. It helps to keep them in their shape. If you are a fan of the two ingredient dough this pan is great for that.

The recipe makes 12 donuts. If I have leftovers I will pop them in the fridge to make another treat with them. 

I like to take half of a donut and break it into bite size pieces. Then I put it in a bowl with strawberries and fat-free Reddi Wip. 

It’s a delicious little treat and the only points come from the 1/2 donut.
