Another tasty breakfast or snack idea for under 100 calories, around 88 in fact.

1 cup whole wheat flour

1/2 cup cocoa

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 eggs

1/4 cup sugar

1/4 cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt

1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce

1 cup zucchini, ground or shredded

1/4 cup chocolate chips

1  Preheat oven to 350.  Lightly spray donut pans with cooking spray.

2  Whisk together flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl.

3  In large bowl, lightly beat eggs then add sugars, yogurt, applesauce, vanilla and zucchini and mix well.

4  Mix dry ingredients into wet ingredients until well combined.

5  Pour batter into gallon size Ziploc bag, snip one corner off and pipe into donut pans.  Top with chocolate chips.

6  Bake 9 – 11 minutes or until toothpick inserted near center comes out clean.  Remove from oven and allow to cool.

7  You can make a glaze for them if you like by mixing together 1/4 cup powdered sugar with a couple tablespoons of milk and a 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla then just drizzle over.  The glaze adds about 10 calories to each donut.

Yield:  I got about 12 regular size donuts and about 9 smaller donuts from this recipe so that makes the calorie count per donut even less!
