Let’s face it donuts are not on the top of the health foods list, but they are SO GOOD it is hard to never eat them again.  Here is a recipe that will give you all the yummy goodness with less fat since you are baking them instead of frying them in oil. The fresh strawberry glaze is amazing!  These are perfect for a fun treat for that special someone.

Yields: 7 donuts
Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

Donuts:
1 cup all-purpose flour
6 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
4 tablespoons vanilla Greek yogurt
2 tablespoons milk
1 egg
1?2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted

Strawberry Frosting:
4 strawberries
1 tablespoon strawberry jam
1-2 cups confectioners’ sugar, sifted

Fresh Strawberry Baked Donuts, Healthier options to comfort foods we all love, Dessert, Recipes, Valentines Day Dessert IdeasDirections:

1. For donuts: Preheat oven to 325°F. Spray donut pan with non-stick spray. Set aside. In a large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, and baking powder. Set aside. In a small bowl, whisk together yogurt, milk, egg, vanilla and melted butter. Slowly mix wet ingredients into dry – just until fully combined (do not overmix).
2. Use a pastry bag fitted with a large round tip (or Ziploc bag with corner cut off) to pipe the batter into a 6-donut pan. Fill the cavities about 2/3 full. Bake 10-12 minutes, or until donuts are set and golden brown.
3. Allow to cool slightly before removing from pan, about 5 minutes. Dip donuts into strawberry frosting 1-3 times, depending on desired thickness.
4. For frosting: Slice strawberries and puree with 1 tablespoon strawberry jam. Slowly stir in 1 cup sifted confectioners’ sugar, adding more until you reach desired thickness and consistency. Donuts are best served immediately. Store leftovers in airtight containers for up to 2 days.

***You may freeze the donuts (glazed or unglazed) for up to 2 months. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator and warm to your liking.
