Chocolate Peanut Butter Donuts

Sharing is caring!


Baked donuts are now a weekend treat at the Shugary house. They literally take about 10 minutes to prepare, 12 minutes to bake. Clean up your mess while they are baking and it’s an easier breakfast than eggs, french toast and bacon! Plus, once you bite into that dough, you know this was the right choice.

As you can see, my New Year’s resolutions did not include giving up chocolate. Or sweets. I promise.
