Oh-la-la, these are scrumptious! You can make them for breakfast on Christmas morning or on other special days like Saturdays! Actually, they aren’t hard to make, so they can be made if you or your family are craving donuts.
It would be nice to be able to say eat these to your heart’s content, but you really don’t want to eat these too often. It probably is best to just save them for special occasions. Though the fat content is fairly low (26%), they dont pack enough nutritional punch to make them a good every day choice.
Having said that, they do make a healthy alternative to those times when you’re craving donuts! Did you know a Krispy Kreme Pumpkin Spice Cake donut packs a whopping 340 calories and 18 grams of fat! And who on earth eats just ONE Krispy Kreme donut anyway? Especially when they pack them hot out of the ovens in those convenient 12 to a box containers! Just say NO! to Krispy Kreme!
