Got your long weekend training plans penciled in? What about the post-workout brunch menu? It’s tempting to go grab a doughnut after a four-hour ride, but here’s a smarter option. This is not your average fried, high fat doughnut. This version is moist, and packs a flavorful punch without the guilt. Fool your taste buds and your loved ones too!
1-1/4 cup FlapJacked Cinnamon Apple Protein Pancake Mix (or regular Apple-flavored Pancake Mix)
1/2 cup skim milk (or dairy free alternative)
1 large egg
1/4 cup light sour cream
1/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce
3 tbsp powdered sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
Combine wet ingredients (milk, egg, sour cream and apple sauce). Add pancake mix and mix well until there are no more clumps and let sit 3-5 while you turn oven to 350 degrees. Use a spoon to dollop batter into a greased doughnut pan(s). Batter should fill doughnut pan to the center, but don’t cover the center. Bake for 13-15 minutes. Cool for a couple minutes while you mix powdered sugar and cinnamon and place in a large plastic bag. Shake each doughnut in the sugar, tap off excess and ENJOY!
