‘Tis the season to eat lots and lots of cranberries! I wish I had a source for frozen proper cranberries, I’ll have to try harder to find them as I love the tartness of cranberries and I’m glad to say my daughter does too. My son, not so much, but I’m working on him. My daughter and I made these baked cranberry yoghurt donuts together- they are simple enough for kids to help with as they have lots of simple measuring.
Did you know that I’m a little obsessed with taking stuff that should be fried and baking it? If you hadn’t noticed, then you should probably check out these blueberry yoghurt donuts and also these parmesan chicken meatballs, two posts that totally prove my theory that everything you fry can probably be baked instead.
These donuts are freezer friendly and because there is no extra added sugar in them…well donuts for breakfast! They would be perfect for snacking on Christmas morning, as you unwrap presents and can easily be made the night before or even the week before and defrosted.
Now if you’re thinking the cranberries will be too tart for you, you can pop in a teaspoon or two of sugar, but don’t go overboard as the cranberries are sweetened too!
Here’s a tip though, make sure you melt the coconut oil, have it hot, or it will seize as you add it to the chilled yoghurt!
