The Dough Bar on this week’s Shark Tank are a firm that have seemingly come up with what every donut lover wants — a HEALTHIER version of the sweet treat!

The firm’s self-styled DOUGHnuts are baked rather than fried and are made mainly with protein-enriched wheat flower.

They also come with the various toppings and glazes you can choose from separated from the donut — so you can choose how healthy you want to be.

Each donut has 11 grams of protein, so could be used to replace a protein bar.

Toppings include things like S’Mores, Cinnamon Toast Crunch and Streusel Crunch. You order them online before they are delivered by post.
