I’m obsessed with baked donuts. Before buying a couple of donut pans, I questioned whether or not I really needed to add two more pans to my already over-stuffed kitchen. But, then I started thinking about how much my kids love donuts and how much I love donuts and how donut pans would enable me to make healthier, baked whole grain versions of a favorite breakfast indulgence. After making my first batch of baked donuts, I  couldn’t believed I survived for so long without owning a set of donut pans.

On Sunday morning I made a batch of banana bread donuts with peanut butter glaze and chocolate sprinkles. Amazingly, there were a couple of donuts left over, which I threw into the kiddos’ lunches. Since I love breakfast for lunch, I decided to pack containers of homemade yogurt with plum jam and muesli. It should come as no surprise that this lunch was a hit with the kiddos.
