Wheat-less Wednesday: Donut Edition!

So being a future Registered Dietician (God-willing), people think we only eat Kale 24/7. While this maybe true for some Nutrition people, most of us enjoy sweets although in moderation and for a treat.

One of the things I crave being gluten-free are donuts! I worked in a bakery during the summers in college and to this day they still call to me every time I am in a grocery store. So to satisfy my craving I ventured to Whole Foods and bought these, not knowing how truly wonderful they would be!

I was very skeptical, as the instructions said to microwave for 15 seconds, I thought there’s no way this is going to be good or warm in this time. I was wrong. Oh my goodness they bring me back to teeny-weeny doughnuts at the fair. All you do is plop them in the microwave and you have warm,  cinnamony deliciousness waiting for you.

And they tend to disappear quickly around this girl…

And to stay true to my future occupation I will share with you all not-so-stellar nutrition facts, it is good they are so small with the sugar and fat content. But hey we all need a donut every now and then!

**As a side note this brand Kinnikinnik, also makes a gluten-free bread. While I would recommend the donuts I would hold back on the bread. It tended to fall apart easily and had a mushy overall consistency. Udi’s all the way!

If you’re in the market for a special treat look no further,give Kinnikinnick’s cinnamon sugar donuts a try!
