Baked donuts are fluffy and moist, but don’t cost you the calories of traditional donuts. These 100% whole wheat vanilla baked donuts are just the thing for a quick breakfast, snack, dessert or in this case…party!!!
Who’s ready for the Olympics???
These donuts literally take 20 minutes from start to finish. Using a pre-made frosting does wonders for speed, too.
Just give it a little Olympic color and you’ll be ready to go!
I didn’t grow up playing sports. Growing up in a family with four daughters, we were more into ballet and music. You know…tutu’s, Barbies and spinning until you felt sick.
Despite the lack of sports, we were influenced by my mother who is a lover of ice skating. It’s such a graceful sport and we always enjoyed watching it together, especially during the Olympics.
Ah, the sparkles, drama and spinning jumps!
To this day, that’s the one winter sport I really like to watch. Go USA! If you want an inside scoop of figure skating, Netflix has a new documentary on the instant stream called The Fabulous Ice Age. Good stuff.
What Olympic sport are you most excited to see in Sochi?
