Chocolate Doughnuts

My kids loved these - and they are a TAD bit healthier.  I used 1/2 white whole wheat and 1/2 white flour.  I thought doing all whole wheat would be too much.

Chocolate Doughnuts

  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder, preferably dark
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt, preferably vanilla
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips, optional
  • Glaze
  • 1/4 cup milk (I used 1%)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
To Make Your Donuts
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a mixing bowl, combine your while whole wheat flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda and baking powder. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, combine vanilla, egg, Greek yogurt, milk and oil.
Combine wet and dry ingredients, as well as chocolate chips if using, and mix until just combined.
Transfer batter into a large freezer style bag (or piping bag). Batter will be thick.
Pipe your batter into a greased donut pan.
Bake for approximately 10-12 minutes until the tops of donuts spring back when touched.
To Make Your Glaze
Combine milk, vanilla and powdered sugar and whisk or stir well until combined. After donuts have cooled slightly, dip each donut into your glaze, then transfer to a wire rack with a baking sheet or wax paper underneath, as donuts will drip off excess glaze. Enjoy!
