I was in the mood for making a new donut, one that wasn’t too decadent but still hit the spot! πŸ™‚ These oatmeal chocolate chip donuts are perfect, full of hearty oats and just enough chocolate to finish them of with some sweetness. They are only 3 smart points each and make a great dessert or even a grab and go breakfast..



Oatmeal chocolate chip donuts

5 from 2 votes
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 16 minutes
Total Time 21 minutes
Servings 6
3SP blue, green & 2SP purple/ 2pp each


  • 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 3sp on blue & green, 2SP on purple or 2pp each. Best stored in 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.

    Hi There,

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

      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 πŸ˜‰

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

    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?

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

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

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

        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!

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

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

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

      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

    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.

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

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

    • Drizzle

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