Chocolate Chip Strawberry Baked Donuts

 

I am so excited to see that my loaded blueberry muffins have become such a hit!

I have received many emails and social media shout outs about the recipe (including mentions from Lake Shore Runner and Run2Golden) and I LOVE hearing how creative everyone is getting in developing their own muffin variations!

In fact, I got creative too.

I loved how well those muffin ingredients combined and had a feeling they would work beautifully to make donuts so I tweaked the flavors a bit to bring us something super special for Valentine’s Day.

Oh my gosh. Get excited.

We are talking holiday pretty with chocolate and strawberry, baked with heart healthy ingredients yet tasty for our soul delicious donuts.

If you don’t have a donut pan, donut worry. Ha, I am funny today.

You can use this exact chocolate chip strawberry donut recipe to make muffins instead.

I made mini muffins and they came out adorable.

I swapped the Chobani 100 blueberry greek yogurt from the blueberry muffins recipe for strawberry greek yogurt and used chocolate chips in place of blueberries.

And one other adjustment: Chocolate milk.

Instead of basic boring organic skim milk, I used chocolate skim milk for added chocolate flavor.

I think I am on a chocolate milk kick this week actually which is not something I drink on the regular but when a craving strikes, I am not one to ignore.

I thought I had a dream that I was drinking chocolate milk in the middle of the night but it turns out, it wasn’t a dream.

The empty chocolate milk on the counter is proof it happened.

So you don’t have to frost the donuts but they come out really pretty and extra chocolately if you do.

And if you have Valentine’s Day sprinkles, go for it.

    Wow these look good. They make me want to eat a donut which I haven’t had a craving for like..ever. I rarely have middle of the night cravings. And we can’t keep much candy in the house at all because Rob will binge eat it all at once. So I might just have to get myself a bar of dark chocolate and hide it from him:)

      I have a chocolate bar stash! Ha. Always have one. I don’t even attack it often, I just like knowing it’s there.

  • Michele @ paleorunningmomma February 11, 2015, 8:43 am

    I love working off of recipe variations to create something else. These really look amazing!

      My son loved these donuts and muffins so that is how I know they are really good!

    I don’t like drinking my calories unless it’s in the form of coffee or boozy drinks BUT… I do not have an “off” switch for chocolate milk; I could quite literally drink 4 Litres of it in one go. I added chocolate milk to the banana chocolate chip bread recipe I used yesterday and it turned out great! These look yummy too. Thanks for sharing!

      I am with you – I do not drink my calories. For some reason I craved chocolate milk this week so I went with it. Craving satisfied!

    I -do- have a donut pan, but I think I only ended up using it once 😆 I’ve thought about busting it out on a few occasions, though! If that counts 😉 And I’m pretty sure I’m just going to resort to lots of baking this Valentine’s. I might hit up the sales the day after, though.

      It’s supposed to snow here again on Saturday which means if I can’t get out for a V Day treat, baking will occur instead. I am thinking a skillet cookie.

  • Sara @ Lake Shore Runner February 11, 2015, 9:48 am

    Wow these look good!! I know what will be going in my mini muffin tin soon 🙂

  • Liz @ I Heart Vegetables February 11, 2015, 11:00 am

    My husband LOVES donuts. This would be the perfect valentine’s day treat!

  • Lauren @ ihadabiglunch February 11, 2015, 12:36 pm

    Oh my gosh I love putting flavored greek yogurt in my desserts. It really boosts the flavor and the protein content. I don’t have a donut pan but I am definitely planning on making a donut run on Valentine’s Day 🙂

      If you live near a Dunkin Donuts, I see they have the special heart shaped donuts with the chocolate crème filling- those are the best!

  • Sabrina @NutritiouslySweet February 11, 2015, 6:25 pm

    I saw donuts and had to click on it! These look delicious! I’ve been in a serious baking mood, i just need to buy a donut pan 🙁

    Yumm…those look fantastic! No donut pan for this girl…that’d be too dangerous. My latest craving has been chocolate…all I had in the house was trail mix with m & m’s in it…so I picked through it…it’s pretty much a bag of raisins and peanuts now…boring! Cravings always hit me at night after dinner…grrrr!

      I always have cravings after dinner, I think that’s why I always have dessert. I just love something sweet. And I love picking through mixes for exactly what I want.

  • Andrea February 12, 2015, 5:51 am
