This morning I had a strange craving for powdered donuts. Now, I usually eat pretty healthy for breakfast in the mornings, but maybe because today is Sunday I felt like doing something different. Actually, these mini donuts are baked, so they have a lot less calories than the donuts fried in oil. These mini powdered donuts remind me of the Hostess Donettes from childhood! They go great with coffee, and I love that I can eat a few of them without feeling sick afterwards. The last few times I have bought something sweet at Starbucks in the mornings I have sworn not to do it anymore because I feel so bad after.
I decided to start doing “Sunday Funday” on my blog every Sunday. Some of you are probably thinking something totally different from what I mean by Sunday Funday (remember Sunday Funday in college?), but I don’t mean that one! Every Sunday I want to make something fun to share – here are some examples of what you might see: Hot Cocoa Pancakes, Peanut Butter Cup Cupcakes, Nutella Whoopie Pies. I eat healthy all week long except for my occasional dessert binges (last night at a friend’s going away party I had red velvet cake with cheesecake frosting :X), and sometimes you will see them on here. Today this happened to be these powdered sugar donuts!
I hope you are having a nice weekend! It always go by so fast, and now I have a lot of work to do. Tomorrow I may have to give a presentation, so I will be preparing for that the rest of the day. Now I just need to disconnect my internet so I don’t go on Pinterest/Instagram/FoodGawker the rest of the day! Bahhh they are so addicting!
