Skinny Doughnuts

Everyone loves a long weekend, but if you’re anything like me you see a weekend as an excuse for extra treats and before you realise the kids have eaten their body weight in pom-bears and freddos and their fluid intake has been 80% rocket lollys and 20% slush drinks!

And this weekend it’s not just the kids- I’ve had some kid-free time at BBCs big weekend and I did the classic ‘I may have a cheeky cider’ which turned into many ciders and a hangover that started at 8pm the same day! Daytime drinking is a dangerous game…

So a healthier bake was definitely on the cards and these are a super simple compromise! A recipe easy enough for kids and a treat that tastes far naughtier than it actually is;

You will need doughnut baking mould or for muffins a 12 hole muffin tray, sprayed well with 1 calorie cooking spray


  • 300g Self raising Flour
  • 300g fat free Greek yoghurt
  • 3 eggs
  • 150ml agave syrup or 1 cup of powdered stevia
  • Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 calorie cooking spray (We used frylight)

Preheat the oven to 170°C /Gas Mark 4

Pop the flour into the mixing bowl and pour in the yoghurt.

Quickly add the eggs, sweetener and vanilla and mix well until combined.

The yoghurt reacts quickly with the raising agent in the flour so as quick as the kids will let you, spoon the mixture into the moulds/baking tray.

Bake for 15-10 minutes or until raised and golden.

Turn out into a wire rack to cool and dust with some powdered sweetener and cinnamon (optional) to serve 😊
