WW :: Healthier Chocolate Donut Recipe

I have so many food allergies that these were the first donuts I've had in 20 years! I use to
work at a doughnut shoppe back then and the chocolate glazed were my favorite along with
sour cream glazed, can't wait to make those next!

Chocolate Donut recipe:

8 tbsp butter (1 stick)
3/4 cup 66% (or more) cacao powder
2 cups organic flour
1 cup sugar
2 tbsp molasses
1/4 cup organic honey
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 extra large eggs or 3 large eggs
1 3/4 cups plain greek yogurt
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking soda

Fully incorporate the dry ingredients with the butter in your stand
 mixer, then add wet ingredients. I usually add the eggs last. 

Bake at 360 degrees for 10-12 minutes in a non-stick donut pans or
 the toothpick comes out clean,
I removed the donuts from the pan still hot onto a cooling rack and 
immediately glaze or top with powdered sugar,  my favorite was our
 homemade chocolate frosting with sprinkles.

Chocolate frosting ingredients:
powdered sugar
rice milk
( Sorry. I don't measure just mix until it looks taste good)

These stay really moist for several days on the counter if they last that long!

If you prefer vanilla, just take out the cacao and add vanilla extract to the recipe we just made some and they taste awesome covered with powdered sugar!

Also this recipe works well fas a cakes too, I use three eggs instead of two for a 9x12 cake.
