We may have the best news of all time. We’ve made candida donuts for you! How would you feel to know you’re allowed to eat warm, soft baked donuts while staying true to the candida diet?!
The hardest part about the candida diet is not being able to feed our sugar monsters. Obviously, that’s the goal with the candida diet but that doesn’t mean we can’t feed our emotional monsters. Simple things like grains and dairy can contribute to the sugar growth so even making sugar-free desserts aren’t always candida friendly. We can change that with this recipe! The hardest part about this recipe is getting your hands on a donut pan. A donut pan makes this recipe ultra healthy and simple. We picked up this one here. We baked these in a well-oiled pan and it created fantastic results.
Our candida-friendly ingredients like eggs, cinnamon and xylitol keep these donuts sugar-free and even Paleo-friendly! Eggs particularly are really good to eat while on the candida diet and in this recipe, they double act for our binding and leavening agent!
The outcome are the sweetest cake donuts. While they probably look like a bakery style donut more than they actually taste, they are the most delicious treat you’ll sink your teeth into when doing a candida cleanse. Nothing can beat them warm from the oven! They are sweet enough to satisfy those sugar cravings but not overly sweet that you can’t enjoy them for breakfast or a healthful snack. Their soft cake like texture is so comforting and so good when nice and warm. Roll them in cinnamon and xylitol and you’re good to go. Happy candida killing!
