What if I told you, “Hey there. You can eat 5 doughnuts with glaze for only 7pp … ”

You’d probably look at me like I was some crazy person. However, I’m not one to joke around when it comes to doughnuts. So, what’s the deal?

Obviously baking doughnuts is a sure way to lower points. No frying = no additional fat. And remember one of my kitchen intimidations? Yeast? Ugh, I really need to give it a whirl, but not today.

These are yeast-free, done in 7 minutes, healthy, cake-like doughnuts. Secret?

Pancake Mix.

You have some on hand. All you need is a doughnut pan. A great kitchen essential to help switch things up 😉 Now, let’s have our DOUGHNUTS and eat them too! They are great by themselves, but they are even greater with a glaze … which is totally optional of course 😉 (& P.S. … this is another great recipe to have endless combos. We get creative with pancakes, so why not make them in doughnut form?) 🙂

easy baked doughnuts:
Yields 5 doughnuts
Serving Size: 1 (yes, you can have all 5!)
Points Per Serving: 7pp

(This recipe is for the doughnuts pictured: chocolate protein doughnuts with peanut butter glaze– If not using protein powder, omit and add 1t cocoa powder and subtract 1pp)
(Keep scrolling to find the recipe for blueberry doughnuts with a vanilla protein glaze- 6pp)

1/3 pancake mix (I always use Hodgson Mills Buckwheat Pancake mix)
1T quick oats
1t chia seeds
1/2 banana, melted (or mashed well)
14g chocolate protein powder
1/2C unsweetened almond milk
1 serving of the peanut butter syrup/glaze
1t cocao nibs (optional- add 1pp)

Preheat oven to 350ºF

⋅In a bowl, mix together pancake mix, oats, chia seeds, banana, protein powder, and milk.

⋅Pour the contents into a ziplock bag, seal, and cut the bottom corner (making a piping bag!)

⋅In a sprayed doughnut pan, pipe in pancake filling 1/2 to 3/4 full in 5 doughnut spots.

⋅Bake for 7-8min.

⋅Remove from the oven and let cool in the pan for 2 minutes, then turning them out onto a cooling rack.

  1. Is this a just add water pancake mix? I’m a Canadian and we don’t have that brand.. Maybe you could post the nutritional info so I can try to compare?



    1. You can use any pancake mix you’d like 🙂 that brand is just my favorite. It doesn’t even have to be the “just add water” because I believe the directions on my actual box has me adding oil and eggs, but no need for that. I use the chia seeds and banana 🙂 Hope this helps!
