These Easy Funfetti Donuts Weight Watchers Friendly and make for the perfect treat, snack, or dessert!

What ingredients do I need for these Easy Funfetti Donuts?

  • All purpose flour or gluten-free flour– I use Gold Medal all purpose flour. For a gluten free option you can use Bobs Red Mill Baking Flour for the same point value. Find it on Amazon HERE
  • Cornstarch-gives the donuts a nice tender texture. When cornstarch is used in combination with flour it can “soften” the harsh proteins of flour, making a more tender baked good.
  • Zero point white granulated sugar substitute– such as Lakanto Monkfruit classic or baking sweetener. I use Lakanto Monkfruit Baking Sweetener 
  • Baking powder- helps the donuts rise.
  • Salt-to taste.
  • Nutmeg-for flavor. This is optional but highly recommended. It compliments the vanilla extract and makes these donuts taste so darn good!
  • Unsweetened unsweetened almond, cashew, soy, or skim milk- any milk would work. I like to use unsweetened almond milk.
  • Egg or egg whites- if you are following the WW green plan-you can swap out the whole egg for white eggs to keep the point value the same. 
  • Light butter-melted. I like to use Land O’ Lakes light butter with canola oil
  • Pure vanilla extract- for flavor. 
  • Sprinkles- because everything is better with SPRINKLES!
  • Confectioners‘ (powdered sugar) or zero point powdered sugar substitute-such as Lakanto Monkfruit powdered sugar. I like to use regular powdered sugar for the glaze. The erythritol- a natural sugar alcohol derived from monk fruit-can produce a cooling effect when it’s not cooked; which if you don’t mind that cooling effect than feel free to use it for the donut glaze and it will save you 2 smartpoints per donut.

 

What sweetener do you recommend using for these cupcakes?

 I love and recommend Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener- which  is a natural sweetener for white sugar, it’s zero smartpoints, and makes for the perfect granular sweetener for baking and cooking. It has zero net carbs, zero glycemic, and zero calories.

It’s vegan, low carb, keto, and WW friendly!

There is no bitter aftertaste with monk fruit and will not raise blood sugars. Monk fruit is a better way to sweeten your life. By using monk fruit instead of sugar you can help protect yourself from diseases and health problems that are linked to sugar.

What sweeteners products does Lakanto sell?

  • Classic-White granulated sugar substitute
  • Golden-Brown sugar substitute
  • Baking Sweetener -perfect for baked goods 
  • Powdered Monkfruit Sweetener-used as a powdered sugar substitute 

Why Lakanto? Because it is the BEST TASTING sweetener on the market, has zero net carbs, zero glycemic, and zero calories!! Seriously, how could you ask for anything more?

The Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener (sugar substitute) that is used in this recipe is zero points. Please keep in mind-the point value can vary depending on the brand of sugar substitute you choose to use.  Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener also has a 1:1 ratio to real sugar. If you use a different sugar substitute you will want to use the equivalent to real sugar that is recommended on back of the sugar substitute package.

What donut pan do you recommend for these?

 This recipe makes a total of 8 donuts.

You can find the donut pans HERE on Amazon. If you don’t have a donut pan- the donuts can also be made in a muffin tin. 

How do I make these Easy Funfetti Donuts?

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Spray donut pans with non stick cooking spray. Set aside. 

In a large mixing bowl combine, flour, cornstarch, zero point sugar sweetener, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg.

Whisk until well combined. 

In a small bowl, whisk together the skim or unsweetened almond milk, egg, melted light butter, and vanilla. 

Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until JUST combined.

It’s okay if there are lumps. The key is to NOT over mix! Over mixing will create a tough texture.

Gently fold in the sprinkles.

Transfer the batter into a piping bag or fill each donut cavity about 3/4 full-
divide the batter evenly into the 8 donut cavities. 

Bake for 10-12 minutes. 

Let them cool for a couple minutes, then move to cooling racks.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl whisk together powdered sugar and skim or unsweetened almond milk in a small bowl. 

Dip donuts into glaze. 

Place donuts on cooling rack and add sprinkles.

Let the donuts completely cool before storing leftovers.

Store leftovers in an air tight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.

Hi Laura

I recommend freezing these without the glaze. You can store them in an air tight container or zip lock bag in the freezer for up to a month.

I do not have a donut pan. Would these hold up well enough to cook in a drop biscuit fashion? Or would they spread out too much? Maybe a muffin tin?

They look delicious! Definitely want to make for Saturday Snack :)

Hi Courtney,

If you don’t have a donut pan, you could use a 12 cup-muffin tin. Be sure to spray the pan before adding the batter.

Cooking time would be the same.

Have a wonderful weekend! Enjoy!
