Greek Yogurt Doughnuts with Stovetop Strawberry Granola.
Let’s put breakfast back in the do(ugh)nut.
We’ve crossed this threshold where donuts are no longer considered breakfast – they are almost always considered dessert. Right? It’s crazy. Donuts are insanely trashed up today with crunchy bacon bits and glazes galore and cereal on top and half of the donut dunked in two different kinds of ganache. And then there’s even cronuts. It’s 100% ridiculous and obnoxious and I 100% love it. Shocker.
It’s 2016 where donuts are no longer breakfast yet leggings are considered pants. Where nachos are considered dinner and backpacks as purses are back in style. Where I’ve actually considered purchasing a BODYSUIT to wear as a top before hopping in a time machine back to my tween years.
It was my intent to put the morning back in the donut here. With yogurt! And granola. And maybe a leeeeeeettle bit of sweetness.
Even if these are still a bit sugary, I love the tang from the yogurt and the crunchy clusters on top. Plus, hello, STOVETOP granola?! This has changed the granola game for me. Bigtime.
Okay, so maybe the weekend morning? We can make this happen, I swear.
I’ve discovered the secret to crunchy granola clusters and I believe that it can be found by doing two important things: adding enough “sticky” sweetener and allow the granola to cool completely in one big clump before breaking it apart. I slide it out of the skillet and onto some parchment paper where it stays until it cools.
It’s one big hunk o’ love. Then break it up! Simple as that.
ALSO. Oh man, there are going to be so many also’s here. The granola is stuck on by greek yogurt glaze. Greek yogurt glaze! LOOK AT THE GLAZE. It’s worth shouting for.
So maybe I’m running in the whole “glazes galore” camp but as a yogurt lover, this it too cool. And tastes fab too.
Aren’t they so super cute?
Don’t you just want to a wear a yogurt donut inner tube for a swim this weekend?
One more also, in fact it’s an also that you probably already figured out: the texture! Soft and pillowy cake donuts. Sweet glaze and crunchy granola. For someone (me) who was so anti-baked donut for such a long time, I may as well drown in the glaze. Completely fanatical over these.
Thanks for hanging with while I gave you an overload of breakfast this past week. I wish I could say that breakfast is my favorite meal (because it is?!) but the truth is that every meal is my favorite meal. Don’t make me choose! I choose them all.

- In a large bowl, whisk the yogurt and sugar until combined. Stir in the vanilla extract and milk, whisking until the glaze is smooth. If it’s too thin, add more sugar 1 tablespoon at a time. If it’s too thick, add more milk 1 teaspoon at time. Whisk until smooth!

- Melt the coconut oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Stir in the oats and almonds. Cook, stirring often, until the oats are toasty and slightly golden, about 5 minutes. Stir in the honey, brown sugar, salt and cinnamon until combined. Cook, stirring constantly, as the mixture toasts and comes together. Stir in the strawberries. Spread the granola out on a sheet of parchment and let it cool completely before breaking it clumps.

WOW Im SWOONING over these perfect donuts! Donuts are supposed to be for breakfast! Leggings shouldnt be considered pants, but Im totally guilty of that fashion trend ;)
Omg Jess, I love your granola recipes! Love, love, love! The one from your book is perfect every time and I just made this stove top granola and it rocks! I had to apply all my restraint to not eat it all at once! I used cranberries instead of strawberries cause that’s what I had, but this is great. Thank you!!

I made these unbelievably delicious donuts for brunch last Sunday. They were eaten so fast I was wishing I had made more. I did have a hard time finding freeze dried strawberries. Finally found them at Whole Foods in the baby food aisle! Thank you so much for this creative, beautiful and yummy recipe.

I’m glad you came up with this ‘healthy donut’ recipe.
This is a good compromise for me and sons who love ‘glazy’ donuts while I shun donuts with glaze. But Greek yogurt glaze? This might just make me embrace the ‘glaze’. And, I can have my granola, too. Genius!

I would eat yogurt every day (more than once a day, let’s be honest) if it always looked liked this. Awesome recipe!
