Gingerbread Baked Donuts

How do you celebrate someone’s birthday?

Pick up a cake?

Go out to dinner?

Special birthday pancakes for breakfast?

I let people know how much I love them on their birthday by baking a healthy birthday treat! Now I realize that ‘healthy birthday treat’ may seem like no treat at all to someone, especially on their birthday. But if you know me, you know my desserts taste great and are healthy because I would never want to give someone something that I didn’t think wasn’t good for their body!

So why not start the day off, celebrating someone’s birthday, with these healthy baked donuts?!
