Snickerdoodle Donuts

Makes 8 donuts (1 donut per serving)


1 1/2 cups - white whole wheat flour
1/3 cup - brown sugar, packed
1/2 teaspoon - baking soda
1/2 teaspoon - baking powder
1/2 teaspoon - salt
1 - egg
1 (6 ounce) container – fat free plain yogurt
1/4 cup - vegetable oil
1/4 cup - lowfat or fat free milk
Cinnamon-sugar coating:
1/4 cup - sugar
1/2 teaspoon - ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons - melted butter
Pair each serving with:
8-ounce glass of milk


Preheat the oven to 350°F. Coat a nonstick standard-sized donut pan with nonstick spray.

In a bowl stir together the flour, brown sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. In a second bowl combine the egg, yogurt, oil, and milk. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, mixing just until combined. Batter will be thick. Spoon the batter into a gallon-size resealable plastic bag. Cut a corner off the bag and pipe the batter into the prepared pan. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until firm to the touch. Cool the donuts in the pan slightly.

Meanwhile, stir together the sugar and cinnamon. Remove the donuts from the pan and brush them on all sides with melted butter. Dredge the donuts in the cinnamon-sugar mixture until coated. Serve warm or at room temperature. Pair with remaining 8-ounce glass of milk.
