Mixed Berry Jelly Filled Doughnuts (National Doughnut Day)

Suddenly, it is June, and it is National Doughnut Day!

Is it any surprise that National Doughnut Day makes me think of camp?  My first summer working at Pine Cove’s Camp in the City, there was a boy on our team nicknamed “Dunks.”  National Doughnut Day fell during our first week of camp in Marietta, GA.  A camper decided to bring Dunkin’ Donuts for Dunks in honor of his personal holiday.

Today, I am sharing with you an easy recipe for baked doughnuts.  If you have a doughnut pan, this batter is perfect for beautiful circular doughnuts.

If you don’t have a doughnut pan, I recommend baking the batter in a muffin tin.  Once the doughnuts have cooled, scoop a shallow hole into the top of the muffin, and fill it with jelly.

Yield: 12 donuts

Ingredients

  • 2 cups oat flour (rolled oats ground into flour)
  • 1/2 cup sugar or other granulated sweetener
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 cup milk of choice
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 6 tablespoons smooth nutbutter (Suggestion:  I used a maple flavored peanut butter, and it was incredible!)
  • 1 cup frozen mixed berries, chopped
  • 1 cup thawed mixed berries, pureed

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and coat a doughnut pan or muffin tin with nonstick spray.
  • Mix together dry ingredients (oat flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt).
  • Whisk wet ingredients in a separate bowl (milk, egg, and vanilla).
  • Combine the two mixtures.  Melt the nutbutter in the microwave for about thirty seconds.  Stir into the batter.
  • Fold in frozen chopped berries.
  • Pour into pan.  Bake for 20-30 minutes, until a toothpick can be inserted and come out clean.  Let cool.
  • Top or fill with pureed berries.
  • Eat and enjoy!

Donuts

 

My college is less than a mile from the site of the original Krispy Kreme bakery.  In fact, I pass by the location when I run.  While the original building is gone, there is a plaque commemorating this momentous location in food history.

There are a lot of recipes out there for healthy donuts; the problem is that most of them require ingredients that I do not keep on hand.  Even though I didn’t have the proper ingredients for this recipe from AthleticAvacado, I was able to improvise and make delicious breakfast donuts.

 

Apple Donuts with Cinnamon Glaze

Donut Ingredients:

  • 1/2 c oatmeal, ground into flour
  • 1/3 cup applesauce
  • 2 tbs. milk
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tsp. honey

Glaze Ingredients:

  • 1/6 cup applesauce
  • 1/3 cup yogurt
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  •  **While some would say that glaze is optional, I highly recommend it for this recipe.  If you opt to omit the glaze, add extra honey and cinnamon to your donut batter.

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Grind oatmeal in a food processor until it is the consistency of flour (about 20 uninterrupted seconds)
  • Add 1/3 cup applesauce, milk, vanilla, and honey.  Process until well-mixed (about 10 seconds).
  • Transfer to donut pan (if you don’t have one, see below).
  • Bake for 15 minutes.
  • While the donuts are baking, combine 1/6 cup applesauce, yogurt, and cinnamon in a microwave safe bowl.
  • Microwave on high for 20 seconds.
  • Pour glaze over warm donuts and eat!
