Amalia has been very into baking lately and often comes home from school asking if we can bake something new. I also love to bake and love that we can share this together. We make a lot of better-for-you baked goods with ingredients like collagen, chia seeds, fresh fruit, and high-fiber flour that she’ll not only eat but fully enjoy. And a lot of indulgent goodies too. It’s all about balance!
Last week, we baked delicious fiber-rich baked raspberry donuts (perfect for Valentine’s Day!) in partnership with Flourish Flour, a new-to-me flour, that has 5x more fiber than all-purpose flour and tastes exactly the same. It’s a natural source of prebiotic fiber that’s made with just one ingredient, wheat, to help support immune health. And, it can be swapped cup-for-cup for traditional all-purpose flour in all your favorite recipes.
It sounded like a win/win to us so we tried it out and weren’t disappointed. The donuts came out great and are the perfect mix of tasty and nutrient-rich for afternoon snacks.
If you have kids, I highly recommend investing in a donut pan. You can take any muffin recipe and make it into a donut shape for something new and exciting. I asked her what flavor donuts she wanted to make last week and she went for raspberry which felt like a strange choice at the time but they came out great!
