“Fonuts” versus Donuts

Leave it to the health conscious folks of Los Angeles to come-up with a healthful version of the deep-fired ring shaped cake known as the donut (or doughnut). Presenting the "Fonut" (faux nut), made with healthy ingredients, it is baked instead of fried so you don't have to feel guilty about having one or more with your morning cup of Joe.

These baked doughnuts have been described as "cakey" and delicious. People are amazed that a healthier version of their morning favorites can taste so good. Baked fresh daily with quality ingredients, seasonal fruit and a limited amount of sugar, I would be surprised if they weren't yummy! These flavorsome sweets are made with ingredients similar to those used by pastry chefs at high-end restaurants. 

Fonut Founders

Described as "The donut’s hipper, healthier cousin," the fonut was created by pastry chef Waylynn Lucas (The Bazaar by José Andrés) and Nancy Truman.
