So I have a confession, I have a huge sweet tooth. I love chocolate and all sorts of sweets like ice cream, cake, cookies, brownies, and donuts. Yes! I love donuts! My very first job back in high school was at Dunkin Donuts. It was like an all you can eat donuts and lattes buffet. Since most of us can’t keep the metabolism we had in high school into our late 20’s early 30’s, I like to keep my treats clean and guilt free. Again, I still do have my cheat days and will have a piece of regular cake at a birthday party. The important thing is to indulge in moderation.
These are eating habits that I am trying to instill in my daughter from this very early age. To me it is very important for my daughter to learn the importance to lead a balanced and healthy lifestyle. I want her to appreciate real, fresh and clean food. All whilst knowing that having a piece of cake or a bit of ice cream on occasions won’t hurt. The thing is that while ordinary sweets are delicious and comforting, I do prefer clean sweets. At this point of my life I just don’t like dealing with the upset stomach that comes from sugary sweets.
These lovely blueberry donuts are perfect to satisfy your sweet tooth and hankering for donuts. They are a much healthier option to regular donuts and are made with fresh blueberries. They are gluten-free too if you or anyone in your family have allergies. Making these can also be a fun activity to make with your kids. Fun family time with a fun treat to enjoy together as a dessert with a family movie. Sounds like the perfect evening in with the family!
