Oatmeal chocolate chip donuts

September 2, 2015

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
Recipe type: Baking
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 6
3SP blue, green & 2SP purple/ 2pp each
  • ⅔ cup oats
  • ¼ cup + 2 Tbsp flour
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • 2 Tbsp apple sauce
  • ½ cup almond milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1.5 tbsp mini chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 350F, spray a 6 hole donut pan.
  2. In a small bowl mix all of your dry ingredients together.
  3. Stir in your apple sauce, milk, and vanilla. Fold in chocolate chips.
  4. 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˜‰

      Did you just toast them to reheat?

    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!!

        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!

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

    Have you ever made them as a muffin?

      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.
