Baked Lavender & Rose Donuts

Eat Healthy

These Baked Lavender & Rose Donuts may be mini, but they’re big on taste, thanks to exotic flavors like lavender and rosewater. 

They’re also a healthier option to satisfy a sweet tooth, as these donuts are baked rather than deep-fried. 

The result is a denser, cakier pastry that can hold up well to a good dunk in your morning coffee or a mug of hot chocolate. 

Not sure where to find lavender extract and rosewater? Specialty stores and health food chains like Whole Foods or Down to Earth often carry them, but you also can call your local supermarket ahead of time to check if they carry these ingredients.
