Greek Yogurt & Granola Doughnuts Recipe


This week is National Doughnut Week, which, whilst promoting the doughy treats is also raising money for a worthwhile cause. However if you thought that doughnuts were just a dessert then think again, as we bring to you a recipe for Greek Yogurt Doughnuts With Stovetop Strawberry Granola.

National Doughnut Week is a unique opportunity for bakers, cafes and coffee shops across the UK to raise funds for The Children’s Trust and is sponsored by CSM Bakery Solutions. For each doughnut sold during National Doughnut Week they are asking you to make a donation to The Children’s Trust – the UK’s leading charity for children with brain injury.

Now the intention is to put the doughnut back into breakfast……with yogurt, granola, and maybe a little bit of sweetness. Doughnuts are pretty much considered a dessert in this day and age, but surely it’s what goes on top of it that dictates when it ideally should be eaten?
Either way the look awesome and taste delicious, and will hopefully raise money for a worthwhile cause.

• 1 1/2 tablespoons coconut oil

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray your donut pan with nonstick spray.
2. In a bowl, whisk together the flours, baking powder and salt.
3. In a large bowl, whisk together the coconut oil and sugar until combined. Stir in the yogurt. Add in the dry ingredients and the eggs, mixing until the batter is just combined. Whisk in the vanilla paste, then stir in the buttermilk until the batter is smooth. Use a spoon and add the batter to the donut pan until each mold is about 3/4 of the way full. Bake the donuts for 13 to 15 minutes, until they are set and slightly golden. Remove and let cool. Once they are cool, dip each donut in the glaze and cover in granola. Serve immediately.

4. In a large bowl, whisk the yogurt and sugar until combined. Stir in the vanilla extract and milk, whisking until the glaze is smooth. If it's too thin, add more sugar 1 tablespoon at a time. If it's too thick, add more milk 1 teaspoon at time. Whisk until smooth!

5. Melt the coconut oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Stir in the oats and almonds. Cook, stirring often, until the oats are toasty and slightly golden, about 5 minutes. Stir in the honey, brown sugar, salt and cinnamon until combined. Cook, stirring constantly, as the mixture toasts and comes together. Stir in the strawberries. Spread the granola out on a sheet of parchment and let it cool completely before breaking it clumps.
