A doughnut is a cult-favourite sweet treat but doesn’t come to mind when we think of healthy food. It is made up of mostly refined flour (maida) and table sugar. Both these items are responsible for sudden blood sugar spikes. But making some small changes to your doughnuts is the best way to take care of your health and not compromise on the taste.

Make a Healthier Version of Doughnut
• The glycemic index of maida is 71. It elevates blood sugar levels significantly. So, replace maida with low-carb alternatives such as almond flour or coconut flour.
• Consider adding unsweetened dark chocolate to your doughnut. The GI of dark chocolate is 20. So it does not shoot up blood sugar levels.
• You may replace table sugar with plant-based sweetener substitutes like stevia. Stevia does not shoot up blood sugar. So, it’s a great alternative.

A regular doughnut is full of simple carbs responsible for blood sugar level spikes. Low-carbohydrate alternative flours also have good nutrition value and help in weight loss. Thus, making slight changes in the recipe really helps in balancing blood glucose levels.
