Skinny Donuts with Chocolate Greek Yogurt Icing

The secret to keeping these baked donuts light is Greek Yogurt in both the donut and the chocolate icing. These Skinny Donuts are a great way to indulge without breaking your diet!

It is my first recipe of the new year, so I thought it was only appropriate to share a donut with you!! If you are new around here, then you might not know about my donut obsession.  I absolutely love making (and eating) baked donuts, and so of course when I was thinking about my first recipe for 2015 I naturally wanted to make donuts.

But don’t worry, I’m not going to ruin the new year’s resolution diets (at least not yet…) – these are SKINNY DONUTS!! Yep, that’s right – skinny donuts with chocolate greek yogurt icing.  There are only 135 calories in each donut, can you believe it?!  And, they don’t taste skinny in the slightest.  They are moist and rich and absolutely delicious.

Saturday morning…to me it is absolutely the best time of the week. I just love the feeling of lazily waking up and having the promise of the entire weekend to do whatever I want. And as I’m sure you could guess, what I want to do almost always involves baking. You’ve probably noticed an abundance of breakfast recipes on Chez CateyLou, and that’s because I love making breakfast for us on Saturday mornings. Muffins and donuts and coffee cake and pancakes – I love all of them! Last Saturday I made Chocolate Chip Raspberry Muffins and wow, did we devour these. I love a good raspberry muffin, and of course melty chocolate chips can only make things better.

So you thought I was done with pumpkin after the craziness of Pumpkin Week?  Nope!  I will never be done with pumpkin recipes ☺  I just can’t quit pumpkin!

Today I combined pumpkin with one of my other favorite things…crumbs! Pumpkin bread alone is pretty amazing. But then add a crumb topping? It really doesn’t get better than that!
