I pin recipes like a machine:
But I almost never, rarely do I ever go back to my pinned recipes and actually make them. I just don't. But I got two donut pans for Christmas, so I pinned a few donut recipes—and I actually tested one of them out today, the results of which were quite fantastic.
Baked maple cinnamon donuts, compliments of Chobani.
I know, right. Leave it to my favorite yogurt company to come up with my new favorite donut recipe. Seriously, I'm not sure it can be beat.
I've wanted a donut pan for a really long time because I love donuts, but I'm not a huge fan of the calorie count that comes with them. So baking my own at home seemed like an obvious, awesome solution to the nutritional problem. And it is, especially when Chobani is involved. Don't forget that you can sub out higher calorie ingredients for Greek yogurt and get the same, if not better, results.
And speaking of "the same, if not better" results—if you don't have a donut pan, do not worry. You can make donut muffins. Because let's be honest, it's really about the flavor (who cares what they look like). Proof:
So anyway, this is a Pinterest success story. Made furthermore successful by the fact that Chobani's recipe is highly adaptable. For example, you could switch out the maple syrup for honey and add blueberries.
I know, right?
Needless to say, I'll be experimenting. And if you do the same, my only piece of advice to you: Half the amount of cinnamon and sugar you make. I have so much left over, which is fine as I like to sprinkle a little bit of it on toast. (Bad, but good.)
Is it tomorrow morning yet? I want breakfast.
