Healthier Cinnamon Spice Donuts

Healthier Cinnamon Spice Donuts

These healthier baked donuts are topped with a brown sugar-cinnamon mixture. When taken out of the donut pan, the brown sugar mixture has sunk and is now on the bottom, almost like an upside down cake. They are made with almond milk and Swerve®, making them just a bit healthier than a fried donut.
