This is the Best Baked Donut Recipe I have ever had! They are made with Greek yogurt which makes them light, and moist. Chocolate ganache and sprinkles on top are a must!
Have you ever made homemade donuts? I love making these baked donuts with my kids, and now that I have found a way to make them a little healthier using Greek yogurt, I don’t feel so bad about letting them indulge every now and then. These only take about 25 minutes from start to finish, so why not try them this week?
While I was writing this post for you today, I was drinking a cup of coffee wishing I could grab a donut right off the screen. My poor coffee seemed so lonely without one. Good thing these come together so quickly. No cup of coffee has an excuse to be lonely when it’s this quick and easy to have warm homemade donuts!
Add some red, white, and blue sprinkles to make these patriotic and perfect for the 4th of July! Or use red and green for Christmas. Orange and black for Halloween. Ok, you get it. They are easy to decorate for any holiday…or a random Wednesday.
These are also fabulous dipped in melted butter and rolled in cinnamon sugar, instead of the ganache. That’s our other favorite ways to eat these!
