Love Lemon? Want to make Lemon Donuts at home? You have to try this recipe. These lemon doughnuts are so good you might eat the whole batch. But don't worry, they are only 1 point on Weight Watchers.
I am a sucker for lemon. I love all things lemon dessert. I have also had a bit of a donut craving. I have loved being on Weight Watchers, more than any other diet program because I can eat anything. I converted a donut recipe to make it Weight Watcher friendly. It went from 3 points down to 1 which is great because there is no way I could stop at just one.
What's the Difference with Lemon Baked Donuts
I love the baked donuts. I will say, in all transparency, that these are a bit denser than regular donuts. I am not sure if it is the basic recipe, because they are baked, or from the Weight Watcher changes. While they are a bit denser, they are still so good. If you are looking for Weight Watcher donuts or just a low-calorie sweet alternative, you want to try these.
Are these Weight Watcher Lemon Donuts
When making a dessert more Weight Watcher friendly, I swap out the sugar for Splenda or Stevia and I use apple sauce for oil. This takes the calorie, fat and sugar content way down. It doesn't alter the taste much at oil.
Does it Have to be Lemon Glaze Donuts
I made a basic lemon glaze for the donuts. I love the strong lemon flavor, but my husband doesn't like the strong lemon taste. I made half with lemon glaze and half without. Honestly, they taste great either way.
