Are you excited? I’m excited.
Today I have a delicious and guilt-free snack recipe to share with you. But that’s not all. You just wait…
This super moist and dense bread is make with Chobani’s Non-Fat Vanilla Greek Yogurt. I have always been a yogurt lover, but baking with it is a newfound love.
Blueberry Yogurt Cake Doughnuts
(Adapted from Everyday’s a Hollyday)
Makes about 12 doughnuts
For the doughnuts-
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp salt
1/3 cup almond milk
2 tablespoons applesauce
2 tablespoons ricotta cheese
1-6 ounce container blueberry greek yogurt
For the glaze-
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1-1 1/2 tablespoons almond milk
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat doughnut pan with cooking spray and set aside.
2. In a medium bowl, combine dry ingredients.
3. In a separate smaller bowl, add wet ingredients (milk, applesauce, ricotta and yogurt). Whisk to combine.
4. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients. Whisk until just combined.
5. Pour batter evenly into doughnut pan. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
6. Meanwhile, prepare glaze by stirring together powdered sugar and milk.
7. When doughnuts are finished baking, remove from heat and transfer from pan to cooling rack to cool. Allow to cool for about 10 minutes before dipping top-side down into glaze.
Ohhhhh Bridge Run weekend. There are times when I miss living downtown, but this weekend is not one of them.
While more than 50,000 people woke up extra early this morning to push their way through crowds of people to find their place in line, then run a 10K over the Cooper River Bridge, I opted out of the madness this year. A solo run through the quiet trails and neighborhoods of Daniel Island sounded much better (although they are not as quiet as normal this weekend on the island, because the Family Circle Cup tennis tournament is taking place right next door).
Even though I didn’t run the race, I still got one perk from the event. Lindsay, a Chobani rep from NYC, was in town for the expo and other race festivities. She met some other local food bloggers and me for breakfast at Charleston’s Cafe.
Erica has had plenty of experience at this restaurant and only had good things to say about all of the food, which didn’t help my indecisiveness one bit. I intended to keep my breakfast relatively light, so I ordered the Blueberry Breakfast Parfait and a sweet potato biscuit (!!!!!!!!).
