These aren't your ordinary doughnuts.

They're packed with whole grains, all natural sugars, and chia power!

I purchased a mini doughnut pan a few months ago while I was at TJ Maxx. It was on super clearance for $3.00. I've been meaning to make a real doughnut recipe, but nothing has really caught my eye (other than all of the drool worth photos Ashley'sposted).

On Sunday night, I began my baking fiasco with my mind set on a dense muffin. I wanted to make something that was a hearty snack, filling, and tasty topped with peanut butter (<--- let's face it, this is always a must!). I filled a 6-count muffin pan with about half the batter, realizing that I had made way too much. That's when I had my genius idea...."I'll take the rest of the batter and fill my doughnut pan!"
