Strawberry Baked Doughnuts

Baked Strawberry Doughnuts

Let’s be honest. There’s no real way to make a healthy doughnut. But this is as close as you can really get. Instead of deep frying a sugar-filled dough in fatty oil, this doesn’t have a ton of sugar and is baked in an oven. And the glaze has REAL fruit in it! It ain’t gonna win any awards in the health industry, but it WILL win you over in the taste department! If you love strawberries, you will love these Strawberry Baked Doughnuts.

Here’s what you’ll need for 7 doughnuts:

Baked Strawberry Doughnuts - Ingredients


1 C all-purpose flour
6 TBSP sugar
1 tsp baking powder
4 TBSP vanilla Greek yogurt
2 TBSP milk
1 egg
½ tsp vanilla extract
1 TBSP unsalted butter, melted

Strawberry Frosting:

4 strawberries
1 TBSP strawberry jam
1-2 C confectioners’ sugar, sifted

For donuts:

Preheat oven to 325°F. Spray doughnut pan with non-stick spray and set aside. In a large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, and baking powder. Set aside. In a small bowl, whisk together yogurt, milk, egg, vanilla and melted butter. Slowly mix wet ingredients into dry – just until fully combined (do not overmix).

Baked Strawberry Doughnuts
Use a pastry bag fitted with a large round tip (or Ziploc bag with corner cut off) to pipe the batter into a 6-donut pan. Fill the cavities about 2/3 full. Bake 10-12 minutes, or until donuts are set and golden brown.

  1. Those look delicious! I’ll bet they’re full of fabulous berry flavor, too. I like adding freeze dried strawberries to my baked goods, and I’ll bet that would be a fabulous addition to these doughnuts!
