There’s nothing better than dipping a donut in a warm cup of coffee first thing in the morning: Delicious, comforting, a GR8 start to the day. If you’re like me, you wish you could start every day like this. Most donuts, though, are packed full of sugar and calories, making them a less-than-ideal breakfast.

The Search for a Healthy Donut

If you’re searching for a healthy donut, you’ll be hard-pressed to find one at the local coffee shop. If you do, they’re bound to cost a fortune. Don’t let that discourage you. There are plenty of healthy donut recipes out there.

Flip through the slideshow below to see the best healthy donut recipes of all time. Get to cooking, and hey, maybe even pair them up with these low-calorie ice cream recipes for the ultimate dessert.

Vegan and Gluten-Free Donuts

These donuts are a healthy cook's wildest dream. With only four ingredients, they're simple to make yet packed full of delicious flavor.

Red Velvet Donuts

Baking healthy doesn't have to mean baking boring, and these red velvet donuts are a testament to that. They're gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, and have no refined sugar. Made with almond milk, coconut oil, chia egg, buckwheat flour, and granulated coconut sugar, these red velvet donuts get their color from steamed beets. What this means is that they're also free of artificial colors. There's even an additional recipe for a cashew cream frosting so you can really go wild.
