Girls don’t want diamonds, flowers or chocolate boxes, girls want a dozen of these pretty pinky mini-donuts with an extra dose of sprinkles thankyouverymuch.
Although I don’t think I’d say no to the chocolate box. Or the flowers.
But not the diamonds. Do you know how the line goes? Something like “I’d rather wear flowers in my head than diamonds around my neck”. More like “I’d rather have some pinky donuts in my mouth than diamonds around my neck” <<< Who wouldn’t, though?
These mini donuts are the way to a girl’s heart. Cute, delicious, pink, sprinkle-laden and skinny – which girl can resist them? #notme.
Chances are high that if you bring me these donuts, grow a beard and buy me concert tickets, I’ll want to marry you. Extra bonus points if your name is Jon Snow.
But less talking about moi and more talking about the actual donuts, which is what we’re all here for. These donuts are the mini bomb. Fluffy, tender, sweet and covered in a sticky strawberry white chocolate glaze – I’d tell you that it doesn’t get any better, but thing is it does. Not only are these donuts adorable, but also good for you! Greek yogurt is involved to add in some extra protein, and I cut down on the sugar too, but you wouldn’t tell!
I used my old flawless recipe for all things cake and muffin like, which is the one I turn to when I need my baked goods to turn extra fluffy and healthy at the same time. Wanna hear a secret? Yes? Here it goes: I intended to make these donuts soooooo much lighter for you. Read: whole wheat, less oil, more yogurt, less sugar, etc, I think you get the idea.
BUT boy, did they turned out hideous. They didn’t resemble donuts but throwing weapons instead, so I resolved to make another batch.
Spoiler: I failed miserably. Got another batch of those throwing weapons again. Cool thing if I ever want to have an army, but not so nice if what I want is send myself to donut heaven.
I pretty much spent the whole day making donuts nonstop. For the sake of the recipe, you know…. not because I wanted to eat nothing but donuts the whole day…….
Aaaanyway. I eventually gave in and used my no-fail recipe, which is indeed not so light as I initially intended it too, but hey, they taste awesome and they’re still on the healthy side!!
Now, let’s talk glaze. This one is ever sooo easy that it’ll make you want to laugh at me. Just greek yogurt + white chocolate. Boom. Magic. There you have the perfect pinky sticky glaze, now bring on the sprinkles!!!
I used some of the white chocolate that the folks at Chocolates Torras sent to me. They make the best sugar free chocolates I’ve ever tried. No artificial taste, no nasty sweeteners (they have a stevia sweetened line which is the bomb!) and the price is fantastic too. If you’re into sugar-free baking, follow a low-carb diet or suffer from diabetes, I recommend you to check out this brand. They now ship worldwide!
And do you see the sprinkles I covered the donuts with? It’s white chocolate strawberry morsels and yes, they’re every bit as awesome as they sound. And also sugar-free. And I also want to marry them.
Don’t look at me like that. If you tried those sprinkles, you’d ask them out too.
