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?!

Rhubarb Grapefruit Breakfast Cake

Has anyone else realized how far a small amount of rhubarb goes?! I picked up only 5 stalks of Rhubarb at the Farmers Market this past weekend, have already made 5 recipes with it, and still have 1 1/2 left! Not complaining…

It was my dogs birthday on Tuesday so I made him an Oatmeal Red Velvet Cake. He also got a tee-pee… the most spoiled. In case you all were wondering, his name is Batman, he is a 7 lb Yorkie, and he is the absolute best đŸ™‚

While I was excited for him to have all the birthday fun he deserves, I wanted a treat too! So I decided to make a Breakfast Cake for myself.

You will love this recipe because it’s super easy. Only one bowl is needed to combine everything. It is also sugar, oil & cruelty free of course đŸ™‚ Who doesn’t want to eat cake for breakfast?!
