Gluten-Free Brownies Donuts

There is nothing wrong with enjoying a healthier dessert. Especially when it tastes as good as this one does. 

Seriously, my kids had no idea this was a “healthy” donut. In fact, they went back for more. 

I know I mentioned that I’m not following a gluten-free diet, which is true.

However, I am currently on Weight Watchers. I love Weight Watchers because you can eat whatever you want but you have to account for the points. 

Weight Watchers is a lifestyle change and not a diet. Weight Watchers teaches you how to make better food choices and helps you learn portion control. 

All the things I desperately need to know!

I love my sweets but I’m not willing to spend 10+ points on a dessert when I get 23 points a day. 

These brownie donuts are only 3 points, which is kind of amazing for a chocolate dessert.

To get started, you’ll need the following ingredients: 

Gluten free flour

Brown sugar

Unsweetened cocoa powder

Baking soda

Salt

Coffee

Unsweetened applesauce

Apple cider vinegar

Margarine

Vanilla extract

Powdered sugar 

Where can I find gluten-free flour?

Most grocery stores carry gluten-free flour. However, you can also purchase it on Amazon. 

Can you freeze these brownies?

Yes! Keep in mind that freezing them can dry them out, so I suggest wrapping them individually in plastic wrap before placing them in a freezer bag. This will help keep the brownies moist. 

How many can you have for 3 points?

Each brownie is 3 points!
