Chocolate glazed donuts

November 11, 2018

It’s been a while since I made a donut recipe, one of my favorite things to bake up so that needed to change 😉 Say hello to these delicious and easy to make chocolate glazed donuts. Just 4 smart points each on WW freestyle and easily worked into your day, so yes you can have your donut and eat it too! Hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

Chocolate glazed donuts
Recipe type: Baking
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 6
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • ½ cup milk (I used 1%)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ½ cup flour
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ⅓ cup confectionary sugar (icing sugar)
  • ¼ tsp vanilla
  • 2 Tbsp warm water
  1. Preheat oven to 350F, spray a 6 hole donut tin with some nonstick spray.
  2. In a bowl whisk your egg with the sugar, add in milk and vanilla and stir.
  3. Mix in your flour, cocoa powder and baking powder, mix well then pour batter into donut tin.
  4. Bake in the oven for 16 minutes, let cool for 5 minutes.
  5. To make your glaze use something that will be good to dip the donuts in, I used a small flat plate with raised sides. Mix your confectionary sugar, vanilla and water till sugar is all dissolved. Dip both sides off donuts into glaze and then transfer to a wire rack with something underneath to catch the glaze that will drop off *Note when calculating points and nutritional info I only accounted for ¼ cup of icing sugar as a lot of the glaze will drop off.
  6. Let glaze dry, store donuts in a sealed container, best in the fridge and they will freeze well.

      The glaze will add a point, so 3

    What would the points be if you don’t do the glaze?

    I am so glad I found your blog! I really hate the taste of artificial sweeteners (and some make me sick!) so it’s nice to see that all the recipes I’ve read so far use real sugar…but are still low points! These look delicious – I’m going to have to borrow my sister’s donut pans I think!

      Hi Meghan, I’m glad you found me too 🙂 yeah I am the same way, most artificial sweeteners upset my tummy 🙁 I have a few on here that I tried for a sponsored post but the majority of them use real sugar, just less 🙂 I hope you enjoy the recipes!

    Made these this morning. They came out lovely! Not overly sweet, like a mini bundt donut. These and your bubble ups are our faves! Thanks for always sharing your amazing recipes.

    Can’t wait to try these! I’ve missed my chocolate donuts. Do you think they’d bake up as mini muffins?

      Yes you can probably make mini muffins as well 🙂 Hope you enjoy

    What type of flour would be best? All purpose or self rising? Also, would cashew milk work or would it taste strange?

    • Drizzle

      I use all purpose but if you only have self rasing it’s fine too.. I think cashew milk will work ok and as long as you are use to it I don’t see if really changing he flavor

    Would i have to change any of the other ingredients if I left out the cocoa powder to make them plain glazed? Ty!

      I only have them set up the way I made them, if you want to leave something out I can’t guarantee they will turn out the same, you’d need to replace the dry your omitting

    You have so many adds, commercials etc on you site I can’t ever get a recipe to print. This is very frustrating. ARG!

      Hi Donna, sorry you feel that way, I should not have any pop ups which a lot of other sites do (Cause I too hate those) but please know those ads are what pay my bills and allow me to spend the time that I do creating and sharing all these recipes with you

    I used unsweetened almond milk. What would the points be?

      Hi Lisa, I don’t think the points would change, but to be sure you can build it in your WW app, sorry I only figure the points out as recipe states otherwise I’d spend all day figuring out different ways haha

        Unsweetened almond milk is only 1 point for 1 cup I use it for my oat meal all the time

    Loved these chocolate donuts! I made them with all purpose gluten free flour and they came out great!

    Would this recipe work with a gluten free flour?

      All I can suggest is to try it, I am not experienced baking with GF flour

    Made these today as written and the recipe was really easy to follow. The only thing was the glaze was a bit wet and soaked into the donuts rather than sitting on top as I expected, not sure what went wrong or if that is how they are. Still very tasty and will try again!

      Hi Jen, yes the glaze is not thick like an icing, just a nice little finish to them
