Deliciously healthy baked blueberry donuts that are light, soft, and perfect for breakfast! With just over 100 calories, these Skinny Blueberry Donuts are a fun and easy treat that’s perfect for any breakfast or brunch gathering!

Ingredients
  • 1 1/4 cups whole wheat pastry flour spoon in (all-purpose, spelt or whole wheat flour will also work, as well as Kodiak Cake pancake mix)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk (I like almond milk or cashew milk)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted (any oil or even melted butter will work)
  • 1/2-1 cup fresh blueberries
  • powdered sugar, optional topping
Optional donut glaze topping
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup water + more as needed for consistency
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350˚ F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Stir in egg, milk, vanilla extract and coconut oil. I add the coconut oil last and stir swiftly, as to avoid it hardening up. Gradually, stir in blueberries.
  3. Spoon batter into a liberally greased donut pan (nonstick spray works fine). You can also use a piping bag or a freezer bag with the tip snipped off to pipe the donut batter into the pan. Divide equally to create 10 donuts. Batter should fill donut molds to the center (but not cover it).

  4. Bake for 9-10 minutes. Let donuts cool for about 5 minutes before removing them from the donut pan. You may need to use a knife to remove each donut from the pan.

  5. To make the donut glaze, mix all glaze ingredients in a medium bowl. You may need to add a bit more water 1-2 teaspoons at a time for the right consistency.

  6. Dip warm donuts into the glaze, making sure to coat both sides, if desired. Place onto wire cooling rack to allow excess glaze drip down. The glaze will eventually set + harden on the donuts after about 20 minutes.

  7. Donuts are best enjoyed the same day, though they keep at room temperature for a couple extra days in an airtight container.

Recipe Notes

You will probably not use all of the glaze recipe and since it is also optional, it is not included in the nutritional information.
