How to 

1. Preheat oven to 375°F and prep a donut pan by lightly spraying with non-stick spray

2. Begin by whisking together all the dry ingreidents for the donut in a medium sized bowl before adding in the wet ingredients, except for the zucchini--Mixture will be very thick at first

3. Make sure all ingredients are well combined before adding in the zucchini then set aside

4. Combine all ingredients for crumble in a separate bowl then begin spooning or piping cake batter into donut pans, filling each 3/4 of the way full then sprinkling crumble on top of each donut

5. Bake for about 20-25 minutes until cake and crumble both become golden

Buy It & Try It 

Non-Fat Plain Greek Yogurt
Store I Purchase At: Aldi or Jewel Osco (Parent company: Albertsons)
Typical Price: $3-$5
Where In The Store: Yogurt section
1. Great source of protein and probiotic! I love to buy plain because it's really a blank canvas--you can use it to make Tatziki sauce or add some syrup and fruit and make it super sweet!
2. Minimal carbs and no fat per serving and really just a blank canvas! You can flavor and use it however you want!
3. Don't limit yourself with this product--you can create cream sauces, cream cheese spreads, and even homemade biscuits!

Liquid Egg Whites
Store I Purchase At: Aldi
Typical Price: $3-$5
Where In The Store: Seasoning section
1. Every time I go grocery shopping this is something that I'm throwing in my cart! Great to add to whole eggs for breakfast or as a replacement for whole eggs in baking!
2. You can pretty much get liquid egg whites at any grocery store these days but I stick with Aldi because the flavor/product is consistent and the pricing is always the best when compared to the competition

Store I Purchase At: Aldi
Typical Price: $2-$4 depending on size packet you get!
Where In The Store: Baking aisle
1. If you're looking for a sugar substitute that is natural, stevia is the route to go! Definitely my favorite alternative and I love that it actually comes from a plant and is not made with artificial ingredients
2. You can buy individual packets of it, which I buy for my coffee, but then you can also buy a jumbo bag for baking, which I usually also purchase!
3. Many times the package of stevia will say that it can be substituted 1:1 compared to sugar but I will say if you google it--the one thing everyone says is not to follow that. Stevia is many times sweeter than sugar so it's best to do about a tbsp for every 1/2-1 cup of sugar and taste test and add as you go. If you add too much stevia you'll find your baked goods to almost have a bitter after taste (trust me I've made the mistake a time or two…or 7)
