today i’m popping in with a new favorite breakfast recipes. and i’m tired so i’m not going to capitalize anything.
i made these donuts this past sunday and ate them for breakfast monday, tuesday and wednesday. andrew didn’t even get a chance to try them. i was feeling like i was getting into a bit of a food rut, so these donuts + a latte were just what i needed to jazz things up.
other things i’m excited about include:
1) french toast (it’s thursday morning when i’m typing up this post and my french toast is soaking away now. excited to eat it asap.)
2) i’ve got an early morning coffee date with a friend tomorrow morning at a coffee shop i’ve never been to
3) andrew said we can get another dog (oh wait. that’s not true. but i’m willing it to be true. i want a labrador!)
4) i didn’t realize the newspaper in the above photo said ‘scoop le poop.’ that isn’t exciting, but i just realized it and am not changing it
5) the weekend is coming and i am planning on sleeping in like crazy on saturday
i really like how they turned out. they remind me more of a blueberry muffin over a light & fluffy donut, which is why i named them ‘baked oatmeal blueberry muffin donuts.’ i love finding new ways to include oats in my life. i love oats. as i imagine you do too. i hope ya love these.
Baked Oatmeal Blueberry Muffin Donuts
Yield: 6 donuts
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 13 minutes
Total Time: 23 minutes
3/4 cup quick oats
1/4 cup + 1 tbsp all-purpose flour
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
3 tablespoons ground flaxseed
1/2 cup greek yogurt
1/3 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup + 2 tbsp pumpkin puree
1/4 cup milk
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup blueberries
peanut butter mixed with maple syrup
Preheat oven to 375ºF. In a bowl, combine all ingredients except blueberries. Once batter is mixed together, fold blueberries in. Grease a donut pan and scoop some blueberry donut batter into each tin. Wet your hands and use them to press the batter into the donut tins (the dough will be sticky, which is why you wet your hands). Feel free to fill the donut molds fuller than the top of the mold. It'll be fine. Bake for 13 minutes. Serve with a latte.
