Baked Whole Grain Donuts

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • dash of nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 ¼ cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup + 6 tbsp applesauce
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1½ powdered sugar
  • 3 tbsp pure maple syrup + additional if needed for consistency


Preheat the oven to 350ºF.

Whisk together the whole wheat flour, ground cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and baking powder.
In another bowl, whisk together the egg, sugar, applesauce, and vanilla.
Add the egg mixture and the coconut oil to the dry ingredients. Gently mix until batter forms (it's okay if it's thick and lumpy). Pour batter into a large piping bag (I usually use a gallon sized zip top bag).
Generously and thoroughly grease a donut baking tin with the NEW PAM Pump Cooking Spray. Snip the corner of the bag and pipe the batter into the tins, filling each about ¾ full.

Bake for 15-18 minutes until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let donuts cool in pan for about 10 minutes, until pan is cool enough to handle. Invert donuts onto a wire rack for complete cooling.

Whisk together the powered sugar and maple syrup until smooth. Dip each donut in the glaze and place on a cooling rack to allow excess to drip off.
Store loosely covered.
