Kinda healthy donuts

Once again, it's a long time between drinks (well, bites) and I see that the last post I made here was about Apple Pies, back in May.  Well this time around I have a somewhat healthier recipe, in the form of donuts constructed from wheat flour and greek yoghurt.  This is based on a recipe I found on the 'Love from the oven' website, however I have changed quite a few of the ingredients to make them a little healthier.  I should point out that I'm only supplying the donut recipe - what ever you choose to put on top to sweeten them up is totally up to you!

Kinda healthy donuts 
(recipe adapted from here)


1 cup of wholemeal self raising flour
1/2 tsp of baking powder
1/4 cup of stevia
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 tbsp raw cacao powder
1/2 of greek yoghurt.
1/4 cup of milk
1 egg
1/4 cup of coconut oil


Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius.

Line a flat oven tray with baking paper.

Combine all dry ingredients.  In a separate bowl combine all wet ingredients.  Mix the two mixtures together and place into a piping bag.  Pipe the mixture into donut shapes.  Bake for 10-12 minutes.  Allow to cool, then ice, glaze, spread or dollop your choice of toppings.
