5 Recipes to Make for National Donut Day!

Today is an extra special Friday, y’all.

It is National DONUT Day. Aka the day that honors my favorite thing of all time. So, in it’s honor, I’m replacing my usual Friday Finds post with a roundup of my favorite homemade donut recipes!

Dancing for Donuts | Birthday Funfetti Donuts.

Birthday Funfetti Donuts from Dancing for Donuts – As far as funfetti anything goes, these are surprisingly on the healthier side and my favorite homemade donuts of all time. They’re super moist and taste like they’re from a real bakery!

Baked Lemon Poppyseed Donuts from Fit Mitten Kitchen – I never used to be a huge lemon poppyseed person, but recently I’ve gotten super into this flavor combo! The glaze is to die for, too.

Banana Chocolate Chip Protein Donuts from Yuri Elkaim – I love that these are actually super clean and made with coconut flour. It’s hard to feel guilty at all about eating donuts when they’re packed with protein and low in sugar!

Dancing for Donuts | Cake for Breakfast

Baked Chocolate Donuts with Peanut Butter Frosting from Dancing for Donuts – An oldie but goodie, these donuts are so delicious, especially for being made with greek yogurt and very little oil! They’re super fudgy, and the peanut butter frosting makes them taste like a reese’s 🙂

Cinnamon Sugar Protein Donuts from Andrea’s Protein Cakery – Another healthier recipe, these donuts can totally be justified for breakfast or a post-workout snack. They don’t require too many ingredients and I love that they have cinnamon and nutmeg in them! They’d be delicious dipped in coffee…which gives me an idea for what I definitely need to be doing today!

How are you celebrating National Donut Day?! I say we continue our celebrations all weekend though because one day is not enough, let’s be real.

A couple of my favorite products from this week:

Dancing for Donuts | Friday Finds

This frozen treat was a solid recommendation from Girl Meets Life – the whole thing is only 150 calories, but it’s icy texture doesn’t necessarily make you want to go overboard anyway. Can’t wait to try the other Arctic Zero flavors!

Dancing for Donuts | Friday FindsHands down my favorite KIND bar flavor. At only 5 grams of sugar and packed with protein, this one is perfect for a midday pick-me-up!

Enjoy your weekends, everyone! 🙂
