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.

Whoa, how is the summer almost over?  Some of my blogging friends have already started posting pumpkin recipes!  I’m not complaining – pumpkin is my second love (after peanut butter) and I bake with it year round.  But I have so many summer recipes I still want to make before the summer ends.   Things with corn and tomatoes and berries and peaches and zucchini… I have a lot of baking to do between now and Sept 1 :)

So since I’m not quite ready to embrace the pumpkin, today I have a perfect summer recipe for you – Vanilla Frozen Yogurt!
