Strawberry Baked Doughnuts

Let’s be honest. There’s no real way to make a healthy doughnut. But this is as close as you can really get. Instead of deep frying a sugar-filled dough in fatty oil, this doesn’t have a ton of sugar and is baked in an oven. And the glaze has REAL fruit in it! It ain’t gonna win any awards in the health industry, but it WILL win you over in the taste department! If you love strawberries, you will love these Strawberry Baked Doughnuts.

Those look delicious! I'll bet they're full of fabulous berry flavor, too. I like adding freeze dried strawberries to my baked goods, and I'll bet that would be a fabulous addition to these doughnuts!
