Baked Love Donuts

Donuts are arguably one of the best breakfast foods ever! I am always in the mood for a donut. I especially love a donut that is on the healthier side, and this one is definitely one of those. No added sodium, low fat, and real strawberries. Additionally, the base recipe for the donuts can be used for just about any flavor. Change the icing flavors and you have a whole new type of donut. Switch the extract flavors and the dough has a completely different flavor.

Baking donuts for my family for Valentine’s Day breakfast has become a tradition over the last couple of years. I knew this year I wanted to create a donut that they would all love. I also wanted to create a donut that was on the healthier side as well.
