Spring has sprung with colorful donuts!!<3

What’s this donut bowl we speak of? It’s a donut where the center is filled (not stuffed) with anything you want.  So it’s a bowl.  Or that’s what I’m calling them.

And to me, with all the pink and purple, they scream SPRING. 

Sooo something depressing…we are the only house on our street that has any flowers in our yard.  I looked yesterday to make sure.  Our yard is all snap dragons (the best flower…except maybe ranunculus, which are pretty nice too) and everyone else just has green bushes.  I need more color and brightness in my environment to bright donuts it is.

On Easter morning we made a stop by Shipley’s and I ordered 2 donuts…one of which was an iced buttermilk blueberry cake donut.  I think it was my favorite donut that I’ve ever had.  I’m a cake donut person all the way.  Do not waste my stomach space with those light fluffy ones. 

{I promise the obnoxious pink nail polish is now chipped and I won’t be bombarding photos with it anymore.  Or maybe I’ll go get them repainted.  It’s been kinda fun feeling girly.}

Now these brownie donuts aren’t your typical light, fluffy donuts.  They’re more dense and fudgy in a way that will make your mind say, “BROWNIES!”  Which is a good thing.

It should be noted that I did try to make the glaze with greek yogurt and raspberries.  It didn’t work for me.  I mean, it was edible, but just wasn’t what I was dreaming for this recipe.  So powdered sugar it was.

Ohh and if you don’t feel like making the glaze and the blueberry filling…don’t.  Just made the brownie donuts and pour yourself a nice glass of ice cold milk.  It’ll do just fine.

Brownie Donut Bowls with Raspberry Glaze

Yield: 6 brownie donut bowls

Prep Time: 30 (+1-2 hour inactive time to let donuts cool)

Cook Time: 12 minutes

Total Time: 42 minutes


Brownie Donuts

1 1/4 cup oat flour, spooned into measuring cup

1/2 cup dark cocoa, unsweetened

1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup milk

1/2 cup almond butter

1/3 cup honey


1 pint blueberries

2 tablespoons water

Raspberry glaze

1 cup powdered sugar

1/3 cup raspberries

1/4 teaspoon almond extract


Preheat oven to 350ºF.  Grease a donut pan REALLY well, otherwise donuts won't come out. I used coconut oil.

In a bowl, combine flour, cocoa, chocolate chips, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  Add in milk, almond butter and honey.  Stir until a batter forms.  Scoop batter into a sealable bag, snip off the corner and pipe batter into donut pan.  Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until donuts don't jiggle when pan is titled.   Allow to cool completely before removing from the pan.  Otherwise they will crumble and it'll be sad.

Make your blueberry filling by combining blueberries and water in a saucepan over medium heat.  Swirl the pan frequently and continue cooking until the blueberries start breaking down and resembling a sauce.  Turn off heat and set aside.

Now make your glaze.  Use a coffee grinder/small blender/fork to mash raspberries.  Scoop mashed raspberries into a fine mesh colander and press the juice into a bowl, leaving the seeds behind.  To the raspberry juice, add in powdered sugar and almond extract.  Then use an electric handheld mixer to blend everything until smooth. 

Dip cooled donuts into glaze and fill with blueberry sauce. 

The donuts must be cooled completely before being removed from the pan.  Otherwise they will crumble.  I recommend making the donuts the night before you want to eat them and then making the filling & glaze in the morning before serving.  (...or if you want these for dessert make the donuts in the morning so they have all day to cool before glazing and filling that evening)

  1. Holy cow! This has rendered me speechless…I just want to stuff all of those in my mouth right now!

  2. I have been dreaming of donuts all week since Dunkin Donuts just opened! Problem solved.

  3. These look heavenly! I think you just convinced me to go out and get a donut pan.

  4. Hey Kylie,
    I was so excited to make these…I almost jumped out of bed last night to make them but waited until the morning instead…..i KNEW they were “Brownie Doughnuts”. But for some reason I forgot to add the 1/2 C of dark Cocoa  powder and didn’t even notice the batter was a light color….I baked them.  They looked okay….just not a dark chocolate brownie color.  I JUST realized now when I was reading  your Iced Mocha Chia recipe that I left out the cocoa. 
    So instead of waiting til later, I tasted one….actually it is VERY good.  I guess I made “Blondie” Doughnuts!   

    PS. I DO wish your print was larger when I print  the recipe page like it used to be… eyesight is not that great anymore!    I know I am probably crazy for “printing” recipes…but for me, I like to have it right there in front of me. (Not that it did me any good this time-). …

    • Barbara! I’m still working on the larger text print option. Since the blog redesign I’m not as familiar with the behind the scenes code of the blog. But I hear you and am working on it! And I need to try these Blondie Doughnuts you’ve created;))
