Treat Yourself: Baked Chocolate Donuts & PB Frosting.

Dancing for Donuts

Happy Monday, y’all!

Let’s do ourselves a favor as we inch our way towards Memorial Day weekend (aka the start of summer) and make ourselves a treat. And then eat it for breakfast…

Dancing for Donuts | Cake for BreakfastThese donuts are crazy delicious and surprisingly packed with protein and healthy things. Who knew?! They’re almost fudgy, sort of a cake-like brownie but without being too dry. I topped them with a smear of natural, unsalted peanut butter to give them an extra punch of flavor. But more importantly, what is better than chocolate and peanut butter together? Absolutely nothing. So I highly suggest making them today and having them each morning (and/or evening) to help get you through this week 🙂

1/4 cup milk (any will do!)

1/4 cup vegetable oil

1/2 cup chocolate chips

1/4 cup shredded coconut (optional)

3-4 tbsp natural peanut butter (Trader Joe’s is my favorite!)

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray donut pan with coconut oil or Pam.

2. In a mixing bowl, combine dry ingredients: flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon.

3. In a separate bowl, mix vanilla, egg, yogurt, milk and vanilla.

4. Combine dry ingredients with wet and add chocolate chips/coconut if using. Mix until just combined.
