Plus the best part is they store well! You can bake up a lot of these on Saturday and have Mini donuts ready in an air tight container for the week of quick and easy School mornings! Well, that is if your kids don’t raid the container and eat them all first. (Yeah, my kids didn’t leave me any to pack up for school mornings the next week.)

The secret behind the healthy chocolate flavor is using a fraction of the sugar the original recipe called for and replacing it with a small amount of Nesquik chocolate mix!

When I was a kid Nesquik was a common staple in our pantry. All the kids loved Chocolate milk. And my Mom would let me have Nesquik chocolate milk every meal! Probably because it was the only way she could get me to drink milk as I was such a picky child– SORRY MOM!

Now as a mom myself I find myself with the same preference for chocolate milk mixes. I also give my kids Nesquik chocolate mix. Nesquik offers 7 essential vitamins and minerals, 45% less sugar than the leading syrup brand and has no artificial colors and flavors! So I can feel good about allowing my kids to have a treat now and then with their breakfast.

My kids have all wanted to learn how to cook more. So I figured why not take a lazy Saturday Morning and stir their imagination with the possibilities of learning to make something they can really enjoy!

I dusted off my mom’s Chocolate Donuts Recipe and made a few changes to better fit our family. Then I got Miss Jade to be the little Chef! She always is playing in the kitchen and asking to help mix the food. So why not let her be in charge?

This is the perfect recipe to let your kids be involved and learn how to cook. The younger ones can help you measure, dump and mix. Just like my Miss Jade. Check out that video below and you will see her being our baker!

Then after the batter is all mixed together the older kids can learn how to work the doughnut maker (or waffle maker if you would prefer waffles instead of doughnuts. Really they taste the same, just the shape is different.)
