Blueberry & Oat Doughnuts

Owning a doughnut pan is a very very risky business. I feel as though it is possible I may have gained at the very least half a stone in weight – simply from doughnuts.

So to make myself feel very slightly better, I made up a rather healthy and rather tasty recipe! I’ve had some applesauce in my fridge for a while and have been meaning to put it to good use. If you don’t have any in the cupboard, yogurt could be another good healthy substitution for the ‘fat’. I love the addition of blueberries, spilling and bubbling over the top, creating a sweet and subtle flavour. The applesauce is quite tangy, and it’s not everyone’s cup-o’-tea, but I kinda like it!

Considering these are so so low in calorie and still considerably satisfying when you simply need “a bit of scran” (don’t you just love British slang), they definitely stand alongside my insanely healthy flapjacks!

The fact that you still feel as though you are holding a doughnut (oh that wondrous and godly shaped treat) basically makes you love them either way. Who doesn’t love a doughnut?!
