Chocolate Frosted Doughnuts

Hey ya'll! (Do I sound southern?!) It's such a beautiful day here today. I woke up and decided to make doughnuts for breakfast. These are so good! Although, Addison informed me that she doesn't like doughnuts. But TC and I definitely enjoyed these this morning. I love how festive the look, too! I really hope you enjoy them as much as we did! Here's the recipe:

adapted from Emily Bites
Servings: 6
Points+: 4

Doughnut Ingredients:
1/4 c. white flour
1/4 c. whole wheat flour
2 T. unsweetened cocoa powder
2 T. granulated sugar
1 1/2 t. baking powder
1/8 t. salt
1/4 c. egg substitute or 1 egg
1/4 c. skim milk
1/2 t. vanilla
1 1/2 t. canola oil
2 T. unsweetened applesauce

Frosting Ingredients:
1/4 c. chocolate chips
1/2 t. canola oil
1 1/2 t. agave nectar or corn syrup
1/8 t. vanilla extract
1 T. sprinkles

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Spray a doughnut pan with cooking spray. In a mixing bowl, combine the flours, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder and salt until mixed well. Add the egg substitute, milk, vanilla, oil and applesauce and stir until mixed well.

Spoon mixture (or pipe) evenly amoung the molds of the doughnut pan. Bake for 7-8 minutes or until a toothpick stuck in comes out clean. Cool completely.

In a microwave safe bowl, combine chocolate chips, oil and agave nectar or corn syrup. Microwave in 20 second intervals until chocolate is just melted. Make sure you don't overcook or you'll have to start over! Add the vanilla and stir until smooth. Quickly dip the top side of each doughnut into the melted chocolate and use a spoon to spread if necessary. You have to do this before the chocolate starts to set. Before the chocolate sets on the doughnuts, top each one with a half teaspoon of sprinkles.
