You know, blueberries are cheaper than strawberries right now! That means…I can bake with blueberries! My daughter absolutely loves blueberries and so do I…and who doesn’t love donuts? These bakedblueberry yoghurt donuts are healthier than normal donuts, baked not fried and contain no added sugar.
If you are wondering why donuts are such a hit with kids….well I think it’s because you only need to use one finger to eat them! My daughter puts them on like a ring and then eats them. It’s quite fun to watch. I intentionally didn’t ice these donuts, because nobody needs icing running all over hands whilst eating!
Now because these are added sugar free you can have donuts for breakfast! YEP I said donuts for breakfast!! What kid wouldn’t love that idea? When you bake donuts, you have a messy side and pretty side, because the pretty side all moulds to the tin, whereas the other is a bit rough and ready, so don’t worry if they come out of the pan a bit lumpy.
These donuts also freeze really well and are awesome in the lunchbox! I’ve already had new requests for them as I sent a few into my daughter’s new teacher…which means a few disappeared more quickly than anticipated.
If you want to, you can easily make a double batch of these, but I only have a donut mould that makes 6! So double it if you have a 12! But don’t leave this dough sitting around waiting on the bench while you make one set in a six mould, as it won’t work out as well.
