I was in the mood for making a new donut, one that wasn’t too decadent but still hit the spot! 🙂 These oatmeal chocolate chip donuts are perfect, full of hearty oats and just enough chocolate to finish them off with some sweetness. They are only 82 calories each, 2-3PP if following WW. They make a great dessert or even a grab-and-go breakfast.


Ingredients used

  • Oats
  • Flour
  • Brown sugar
  • Baking powder
  • Cinnamon
  • Apple sauce
  • Almond milk
  • Vanilla
  • Mini chocolate chips
  • Icing *optional




For the oats, I usually use Quaker large flake oats however quick oats will work just as well.

You can substitute the almond milk for regular milk if necessary.





For the icing, I sometimes buy the container of Betty Crocker icing, or you can easily make a small amount using a little icing sugar (a.k.a confectionary sugar) and milk. If I do use icing you really don’t need much, just a little drizzle will really sweeten up these donuts.

  • 2/3 cup oats
  • 1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp flour
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 Tbsp apple sauce
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1.5 tbsp mini chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350F, spray a 6 hole donut pan.
  • In a small bowl mix all of your dry ingredients together.
  • Stir in your apple sauce, milk, and vanilla. Fold in chocolate chips.
  • Fill donut pan and bake in oven for 16 minutes, let cool for 5 minutes then remove from pan using a knife to scrape around edges. Makes 6 donuts at 2-3 personal points, 3sp on blue & green, 2SP on purple or 2 points plus each. Best stored in the fridge. Optional, top with vanilla icing, you don't need much, I pipe 1 Tbsp out of a small zip lock bag and can get enough to cover all 6, wont add points for 1 donut but if you have 2 I would add a point for icing.

  1. Hi There,

    I’m wondering do you use a regular size muffin pan when you make these? Or a mini? Thank you 🙂

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi, these are donuts not muffins.. I use the 6 hole reg size donut pan 🙂

    • Drizzle Reply

      I have never froze them.. I want to say they would be ok, but I am not positive, they may become soggy when defrosted.. I should try it one time just so I know 😉

    I made a bunch and froze some and they taste just as good:)

    • Drizzle Reply

      Awesome.. That’s good to know.. I have never froze them.. Thanks for sharing 🙂

      • Drizzle Reply

        Hi, you can re-heat them anyway really, or not at all.. toaster or microwave is fine

    OMIGOODNESS!!!!!! I made these from the recipe on your fabulous android app and they are wonderful! I ‘needed’ a sweet fix and these totally fit the bill and I did not break the points bank! I am doing PP. I will make these again and again and again……you get the picture! THANK YOU!

      Awesome, so glad you enjoyed them 🙂 (and will keep enjoying them hehe)

      Hi Amy, I use a Quaker baking oat which is similar to quick oats

  7. These look very tasty. I only have a mini donut pan (makes 12 mini donuts), I hope they turn out. Quick question would cow’s milk be an okay substitute for almond milk?

    • Drizzle Reply

      Yes regular milk is fine 🙂 shouldn’t affect the points overall. Hope the mini ones worked for you

  8. Would it be possible to use these in a muffin tin? They look too delicious to wait for my donut tray to arrive!!

    • Drizzle Reply

      HI, sure I think they would be ok in a muffin tin, mini might best best 🙂

        I doubled this and it was delicious. you might want to add “quick oats” to the recipe, as I used regular ones (a little heavier) Thanks for real baked goods not made with mixes!

        • Drizzle Reply

          So glad you enjoyed them Eileen, I use Quaker baking oats, they are not instant quick oats

  9. These are really good. I skipped the choc chips & used blueberries. Also didn’t need the frosting drizzle. Ended up 2 pts.

    • Drizzle Reply

      Thanks for the tips 🙂 glad you enjoyed them 🙂

  10. I need a sweet treat! I don’t have any applesauce in the house right now. Substitute???

    • Drizzle Reply

      No but I know others have and they should work out fine, I always suggest mini muffins if using one of my donut recipes as a muffin recipe

  11. I may have missed the question, but what if you dont buy almond milk – will fat free cow’s milk work as well? I don’t buy buttermilk but know I can add lemon juice to regular milk to make a substitute. I just don’t use it enough to buy a container. Suggestions? Thank you.

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi Barb, no, I just used a little from a container

  12. Hi! Did you use unsweetened almond milk? I wasn’t sure which kind to buy. Thanks!

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi, yes I always buy unsweetened but either is fine

  13. Can you use a sugar substitute, such as Swerve? Do you think it Oswald make a difference in points?

    • Drizzle Reply

      Sure you can substitute, it will likely drop the points down by 1, so 2 on blue/green, 1 on purple
