Healthy donuts? Yes please! These baked donuts are the perfect alternative to fried, sugary, store-bought donuts that the whole family can enjoy. Although I used blueberries and dark chocolate chips, you could try making your own variations or flavor combinations to suit your preferences. If you’re making these for your kids, be warned, the chocolate ones will go fast! But that’s not to say the blueberry donuts aren’t just as delicious…
