Alright. I really really really want to write about my mud run, but I promised I'd give these donuts their own due first. Admittedly I was waiting to get a better picture, but as we know with these things, if I keep waiting for the perfect one it's never gonna happen. Soooo! I give to you...
lower calorie donuts from hungry girl! Daaahhh duuuh!
(note the professional photo.. hence not my picture. My picture is farther down)
ok. Nevermind that her website says this is canolistuffed french toast. With a few modifications, these things honestly do taste like donuts.
First thing I know many people are probably 0_o over is the use of hotdog buns. Yes, I know. When my sister first brought this up, I quirked my own eyebrow at her in question too. Wondering how she could possibly make one of my favorite things from a hotdog bun. But I disgress.
She snagged some 80 calorie hot dog buns, and subsituted the inside for vanilla jello that was halfed with FF coolwhip since I do not like ricotta. You could do sugar free if you so wished, but that was what she had in hand. It only takes about a tablespoon of filling just put on the inside. Then comes the egg bath. I use egg beaters whites. Just make sure you coat it on all sides, spray your pan with no stick spray.. and let the babies cook! They only need about a minute on each side depending on how hot your pan is. And yes, you need to flip em on all four sides.
When your done, pull them out and dust them with some powered sugar. With mine, I used 1 tbls for 4, which comes out to around 8 calories extra for each donut. Now if you want to get fancy, you could cut these like hungry girl.. but I prefer to eat mine whole. Less messy. Here is my picture. I know, so not as pretty.. but this was taken with an camera phone, and I was hungry.
The fillings to these things are endless with possibilities depending on your mood. And if you have a craving for jelly donuts, custard or chocolate filled, give it a shot. You could eat 4 of these easily and it still wouldn't be as much to 5 small muchkin from dunkin donuts, no lie.
