This morning I woke up with the hankering for a donut and a cup a joe.
So I set out to make some delicious low carb donuts.
I was also feeling fruity so I decided to go with a lemon flavored donut.
I based my recipe on a great lemon doughnut that I found on Joy Filled Eats. She used a cream cheese frosting, but like I say, I was feeling fruity, so I mixed up a blueberry glaze to dip them in instead. And it worked out great. They are just as tasty as normal sugary donuts, but these little guys only have 1g net carb per donut. Not to shabby, eh?
Now that these donuts are in my life, I will never let them go.
