Recipe: Delicious TTC Donuts
Who said sticking to a fertility diet had to be boring? Liven it up with some delicious glazed donuts! These protein-packed morsels use fertility-friendly cream and butter along with almond/chickpea flour and eggs to get you through your morning or for a well-deserved afternoon break.
The sweetener used in this recipe is Monk fruit extract, which is a natural sugar alternative that has zero calories and is considered a healthy sugar substitute. It’s made by crushing monk fruit, extracting it’s juice, then extracting the mogroside from the juice. The result is a sweetener that can be 100 – 250 times sweeter than granulated sugar from sugar cane. But no calories.
However, monk fruit sweetener should be used in moderation. It’s also important to check the ingredient list to make sure what you’re purchasing is pure monk fruit and doesn’t contain other additives. It is often mixed with erythritol, which is a sugar alcohol that is also considered a good sugar substitute, but it can cause bloating or stomach upset in some people.
For this recipe, you’ll need a nonstick donut mold, as these donuts are actually baked instead of fried.
