Baked Blueberry Lemon Yogurt Donuts

Baked Blueberry Lemon Yogurt Donuts- made with Greek yogurt, fresh lemon and blueberries, these donuts are bursting with flavor!

I am not usually a lemon dessert kind of gal. Lemon meringue pie? No thanks, I’ll pass.

But there is something about blueberries and lemons that go so well together. Maybe it’s the combination of bright yellow and soothing blue. Or just the right amount of sweetness with a hint of sour.

I don’t know what it is but they just taste so right together!

My house smelled amazing while these were cooking. Talk about a great natural air freshener! It took a lot of willpower not to eat them right away.

When I finally did it was so worth it. These are dense with a light flavor that is not too sweet yet just enough citrus to please the palate. Mmmm, mmm…

I prefer mine warm but you can also refrigerate them and serve cold. I hope you’ll give this recipe a try because you will not be disappointed!
