12 doughnuts


  • Nonstick cooking spray

  • 2 cup all-purpose flour

  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup strawberries, cut into 1/4-inch pieces

  • ½ of a medium banana

  • 1 egg, lightly beaten

  • ¼ cup plain low-fat yogurt

  • ¼ cup honey

  • 2 tablespoon canola oil


  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Coat a standard-size (3 1/2-inch) doughnut pan* or twelve 2 1/2-inch muffin cups with cooking spray.

  2. In a medium bowl stir together next five ingredients (through salt). In a large bowl mash together 1/2 cup of the strawberries and the banana. Stir in next five ingredients (through vanilla) until smooth. Stir yogurt mixture into flour mixture. Gently stir in remaining 1/2 cup strawberries.

  3. Spoon batter into a large resealable plastic bag. Using scissors, cut off a corner; squeeze batter into prepared pan, filling each cup about two-thirds full. Smooth tops with a greased spoon.

  4. Bake 15 minutes or until doughnuts are nearly firm when lightly pressed. Cool in pan on a wire rack 3 minutes. Turn doughnuts out of pan onto wire rack; cool completely. Top with Chocolate Drizzle or Cream Cheese Drizzle. Let stand until drizzle is set.


If necessary, bake doughnuts in doughnut pan in two batches, washing pan and coating again with cooking spray before filling with the remaining batter.

Cream Cheese Drizzle

Thin 2 oz. cream cheese with milk, 1 to 2 Tbsp. at a time, to a drizzling consistency. Drizzle doughnuts with cream cheese; let stand until set.

Chocolate Drizzle

Melt 2 oz. dark chocolate. Drizzle doughnuts with chocolate; let stand until set.
