Do you crave a little bakery bliss in the morning? Find yourself sneaking around the kitchen for a forbidden nibble at night? Well HALLELUJAH Sister Mary Catherine! Our dieting prayers have been answered. Today, we're scooping the most sinful treat that won't send you to calorie confession. It's all about Holey Donuts!® (www.holeydonuts.net)
The innovator behind this dreamy dough created mouthwatering donuts you can enjoy without leaving your diet in the dust. Yes, you heard us right, these are low fat DONUTS. The gourmet delights use no artificial sweeteners, have zero trans fats and are created through a patented cooking process.
Holey Donuts come in a variety of flavors and delicious assortments. How about traditional glazed, raspberry graham cracker or fudge crumb Boston cream? Or you can munch on reduced fat toasted coconut donuts or reduced fat blueberry crumbcake donuts. YUMMY. Holey Donuts also offers JUMBO low fat cinnamon rolls and irresistable donut holes too. The numbers stack up like this. An original glazed from Krispy Kreme Donuts® is 200 calories and 12 grams of fat. A frosted donut from Dunkin Donuts® is 230 calories and 11 grams of fat. Drum roll please...A Holey Donuts vanilla crumb donut is just 148 calories and only 3 grams of fat. Sounds like a two for one to us.
Of course we have our favorites. Lisa loves anything lemon and is smitten with the Holey Donuts Low Fat Vanilla Lemon Donut Holes. They start with a simple mouthful of vanilla dough, cover it with a thin blanket of sweet frosting and fill it with a pop of puckering lemon. 3 of these oversized pieces are just over 150 calories, 3 grams of fat and just 3 Weight Watchers POINTS®.
Chris is LOVIN the Low Fat Jumbo Cinnamon Rolls. They are made of sugar and spice... just everything's nice about these rolls. With perfect layers of sweet buttery frosting and cinnamon coated dough, Holey Donut's Cinnamon Rolls put that other bun to SHAME. A Holey Donut's Cinnamon Roll is 340 calories and 5 grams of fat. The menace in the mall (a.k.a. Cinnabon) serves up a roll so destructive, you'll need to roll out of there after horking it down. Their traditional Cinnabon can pack nearly 1000 calories and upwards of 50 grams of fat. OMG- there's nothing holy about that!
What we may like even more than the amazing flavor and calorie counts of these dreamy bites? Special delivery. HD's conveniently come directly from their Brooklyn bakery to your door with just a click of your mouse. They are carefully shipped in ice via FedEx and once home, must be stored in your freezer. Skinny Scoopers always say, out of sight, out of MOUTH. When ready to indulge without the bulge, grab a few Holey Donuts from your freezer and toss them in the microwave. Bakery bliss. You could conceivably defrost the whole bunch and eat 'em all in one sitting, but why blow all that dough at once? Savor these heavenly babies one little bite at a time.
Also, make sure to catch Holey Donuts founder Frank Dilullo chatting in our Weekly Roundup Podcast. You can learn how Holey Donuts was almost named...Holey S*&! We had heard of the HD phenomenon over recent years but always thought everyone was talking about High Definition. From here forward HD means only one thing to Skinny Scoopers... Holey Donuts! ENJOY!!!
