Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

  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.
