BIG NEWS! This month officially marks ONE YEAR since I started this here blog. It's Cheat Day Everyday, my baby, is officially one year old and I thought it would only be right to celebrate with a bang.
A guilt free, low calorie bang of course. These Skinny Whole Wheat Birthday Cake Donuts are the perfect fit for such a fab occasion!
Before I dive into all the goods in this recipe (spoiler alert: there are tons), I wanted to inform you guys that I've done something slightly different.
In the midst of the many food focused posts that I've done within this past year, I decided to create a post dedicated solely to sharing my experience as a newbie food blogger. From my biggest achievements, to my many (sometimes difficult) lessons learned, I'm sharing the good, the bad and the ugly. (look out for it this week!)
So, now back to these oh so amazing "you will never believe they are under 100 calories" donuts. No, that wasn't a typo.
These. Donuts. Are. Under. 100. Calories. [sprinkles included]
I will openly admit that I spent a good deal of time in the kitchen, whipping up batch after batch of recipe flops before I finally arrived at the perfect combination.
You see, creating delicious oven baked Birthday Cake Donuts is the easy part. However, keeping those calories down to a number that won't make you contemplate your life decisions before 10 am is the real challenge.
In the end, I found that the perfect solution consists of a Greek yog for butter substitute and a dash of Truvia Baking Blend.
As I've previously mentioned, I've never been a fan of artificial sweetners. Every single one seems to leave a bad taste in my mouth, no matter which baked goods I try to hide them in. However, Truvia Baking Blend has officially hit all of the right spots. ♥
Not totally zero calorie, but for great the taste, I'll suck it up. 😉
