I’ve mentioned this before, but one of the most concerning things to happen to me in the first trimester was not the constant nausea or fatigue…it was the loss of my sweet tooth! Honestly, desserts are one of my favorite things ever, so to just have no interest in eating anything sweet was the most bizarre thing ever. I wondered if it would be like that forever. And then one day, TheBetterHalf and I were in our local market, and something sweet actually sounded appealing to me…a Brooklyn Blackout Donut from the Donut Plant!!! It was like a light at the end of the first trimester tunnel.

Then for about 5 days in a row, I had to have that donut. Which was problematic when the store was out of it and I then had to go to every local coffee shop that serves Donut Plant donuts to find one…making me late for work…but it was totally necessary. After about the fifth day I decided that I probably shouldn’t be eating fried donuts every morning, so I thought it would be really fun to create a baked version! These are just as moist and chocolatey as the real thing, but are much lighter….

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.
