It's kind of funny (and awesome) how my kids can be tricked when it comes to food. :) Normally on Saturdays they get to have a donut or bagel for breakfast. This morning I was going to watch my friend's kids so I didn't have time for a donut run. I decided it would be more healthy anyway to make my own.
All I did was make biscuit dough, then add some frosting for the "donut" appearance. Biscuit (especially the ones I make) and donut dough taste QUITE different, but I guess as long as there is frosting they don't seem to notice. :)
Homemade Donut Holes (makes about 14)
1/2 cup oats (blended till powder)
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
2 tbls. olive oil
1/4 cup pureed sweet potato
1/3 cup milk
Mix together until combined. Form into donut holes onto greased cookie sheet. Bake at 400 for 8-10 minutes or until not doughy in the middle. Let cool then frost. I used this recipe for the frosting (but halved it).
