Was in the mood for donuts yesterday so I thought I would once again tweak my original chocolate donut recipe. These are delicious and will be making a repeat appearance on my Easter table.
So I did make it into a Starbucks on free pastry day I got my SF Cinnamon Dolce Soy Latte and scored a free scone for my Mum who has the metabolism of a 14 year old boy. Those genes did not find there way into my pool instead I got my Pop's short & stubby ones. While in Bux I did notice they have little mini donuts now. Hey Starbucks: You could just as easily have some of these delicious, no sugar added, low carb, high protein, 1/2 the calories, weight loss surgery, diabetic friendly ones. In original chocolate, fall spice, or this yummy spring berry version... for a small fee of course ;)
