Can you make a healthy donut

My loved one generally eats very few sweets. With a chocolate bunny for Easter or freshly baked cake, I can rarely make him happy. On the one hand because he is very figure-conscious and athletic, on the other hand he is just not as sweet a beak as I am. I could actually eat cake any time of the day or night. This can actually already be seen at the breakfast table. While I prefer a sweet breakfast and could never walk past a delicious vanilla porridge, waffles, pancakes or jam rolls, it tends more towards the classic cheese or sausage rolls.

However, there is one thing he loves very much - and that is donuts. I don't really know where this tendency comes from. He hasn't been to the USA, THE donut country par excellence (but that's at the top of our bucket list!). But since donuts are very unhealthy, I accepted the challenge and wanted to conjure up a healthy variant of his favorite pastry for him. And here is the result:

[singlepic id = 221 w = 800 h = 600 float = center] [singlepic id = 213 w = 800 h = 600 float = center]

The most important thing for healthy donuts is the donut baking pan for the oven. This saves you unnecessary deep-frying. I discovered the basic recipe for healthy donuts from the oven at hellopippa and haven't changed much about it.

For example, I use Xucker light instead of the agave sweetness. You can get this at almost every DM and it makes healthy baking without sugar a lot easier. I also added 1 bottle of butter-vanilla flavor to the dough. Instead of baking powder, I used baking soda in my second baking attempt. Because the dough contains yogurt, it works great. Unfortunately, on my first try with baking powder, I made the experience that there were holes in the dough after baking. I didn't have this case with baking soda. For the 30 grams of grated nuts in the recipe from hellopippa, I used almonds and hazelnuts, with this mixture the donuts have become super juicy and fluffy.

[singlepic id = 211 w = 600 h = 450 float = center] [singlepic id = 212 w = 600 h = 450 float = center] [singlepic id = 217 w = 600 h = 450 float = center]

The donuts themselves actually consist almost entirely of healthy ingredients. Without sugar and without butter, but with spelled flour, yoghurt and healthy nuts. The toppings of the donuts are probably not so healthy for me. 🙂 In addition to the dark chocolate couverture, I also used white chocolate to decorate the donuts. In addition to chocolate, sprinkles of sugar, chopped almonds, pretzel sticks and a Raffaello have found their way onto donuts. Without topping it would be boring.

Have fun with the recipe for healthy donuts from the oven. We'll definitely have the little delicacies more often.

healthy donuts from the oven


  • 3 large eggs
  • 160 grams of spelled flour
  • 60 grams of ground nuts
  • 200 grams of yogurt
  • 40 grams of Xucker light
  • Butter-vanilla flavor
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda


  • Dark chocolate couverture
  • white couverture
  • Toppings of your choice


  • Preheat the oven to 180 ° C top / bottom heat. For the donut batter, stir the eggs, yogurt and Xucker light until frothy. Mix in the butter and vanilla flavor.
  • Mix the flour with baking soda and ground nuts and briefly sift into the liquid ingredients. Grease the donut baking pan a little.
  • Pour the batter into your donut baking pan. I always do this with the help of a confectioner's syringe, at least that way it goes wrong. Bake the donuts in the oven for about 20 minutes.
  • Turn the donuts out and leave to cool on a rack. Melt the couverture in a hot water bath and decorate the donuts as you wish after they have cooled down.
