Brownie Donuts

Breakfast, Desserts, Donuts, Recipes

Okay, this is my favorite recipe ever! It’s a one bowl brownie recipe, healthy, and packed with good nutrients.

I love topping these babies with peanut butter, greek yogurt, or having them on their own with some coffee and eggs on the side for a filling, and tasty breakfast. Guilt-free, and delicious? you’re welcome 😉

They are also super portable which makes them perfect for a quick breakfast or snack on the go!

  • Add the oat flour, flaxseed meal, protein powder, baking powder and mix well.

  • Incorporate the almond butter to the brownie batter and mix until everything is incorporated.
  • Bake for 12 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Allow it to cool for 15 minutes then run a knife around the edges and lift the donuts out of the pan. You can store these in a gallon ziplock bag in the freezer for weeks or in the fridge for 5-7 days!

*Note: You can blend 1/2 cup oats in a blender to make the oat flour. Top these with peanut butter or yogurt. It’s so delicious on its own as well and perfectly sweet!

Double Chocolate Donuts

Breakfast, Desserts, Donuts, Recipes

These are very delicious baked old-fashioned cake donuts! The chocolate flavor shines through without being over powering and over chocolaty. There’s nothing wrong with chocolate on chocolate but sometimes it can be a bit dense. These donuts are perfect in every way. They’re soft, delicately sweet, and the toppings you add to the top add some UMPH of texture. I added peanuts to a few, and chocolate chips to others. SO GOOD! The chocolate icing on top is also amazing! Bon appetite 🙂

Yields 6 donuts 

Ingredients:

For the Donuts-

  • 2 tablespoons soft butter
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil (any oil will do)
  • 2.5 tablespoons white cane sugar
  • 2.5 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg *optional
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder ( I used Hershey’s)

For the chocolate icing:

  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil or butter
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder ( I used Hershey’s)
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon milk ( or less depending on consistency you want)

Directions:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease the donut pan with oil spray or butter
  • In a medium sized mixing bowl beat the butter, oil, white, and brown sugar until smooth
  • beat in the egg
  • stir in baking powder, soda, salt, vanilla,  unsweetened cocoa powder until incorporated
  • alternately add the flour, and milk until thoroughly combined and looks like a smooth mixture.
  • Spoon the batter into the lightly greased donut pan
  • Bake for about 10-12 minutes or until the toothpick comes out clean. I would check the donuts at 10 minutes!
  • Let them cool completely before the glaze

For the icing- mix everything together until nice and smooth and refrigerate until ready to glaze. You can always thicken it with more powdered sugar or thin it out with more milk. Top it off with nuts of choice, coconut shreds, or chocolate chips! So yummy!

Enjoy! 🙂
