Since many of our recipes are reader-submitted, we do not have calorie counts. When we do receive them, we add them to the recipes.

Since these are supposed to be "diet" doughnuts, it would be advisable to give the nutritional information for the doughnuts. If nothing else, at least the calories per doughnut.
