Today was the last meeting of the graduate seminar I’m in–someone presents a chapter each week, and today was my day, so I thought it was fitting to make and bring donuts. So I came up with a recipe for maple “bacon” donuts made with coconut bacon, and I think they’re my favorite so far!
I know I’ve been eating a bit too many non-Starch Solution friendly foods in the form of 2 donuts and 2 cinnamon rolls during this challenge, but it’s sort of an end-of-the-semester (and graduation) phenomenon! Also, it just goes to show that with high carb, there’s some wiggle room for treats that still allows for weight loss 🙂
I’m looking forward to getting back into my whole foods groove now that I’m all done with events that call for donuts. Although, I would like to use up the rest of my flour and sugar and oil so I don’t have to throw them away when I move out in 2 weeks, and I would like to keep working on recipes for my donut ebook… but I don’t crave donuts per se, and would be just as happy with a banana. I’m conflicted!
