I’m a sucker for a great doughnut, but sometimes I want to eat a whole dozen of them. My doctor tells me that eating that much fried dough isn’t good for me, but I’ve found a loophole. My Baked Cinnamon Almond Butter “Churro” Doughnuts are baked not fried. You still probably shouldn’t eat a dozen of them by yourself though.
