Donut Balls (Healthy, Yes Healthy)

These luscious morsels are a pure taste of heaven. I make these quite often, and my 11 year old nephew requests them all the time, and he even knows they are healthy. Once again, a wonderful recipe from Joann Lund. I am posting this for my wonderful friends at WLB2006. Each serving (2 doughnuts) is only 1 Starch Exchange. I don’t know the exact calories, but a starch serving is 80 calories. Family and friends won’t believe these are healthy. Yes, it is 1 cup and 2 tablespoons of reduced fat Bisquick, computer wouldn’t let me put in 1 Cup 2 tablespoons.
