Peanut Butter Chip Donuts (gluten-free)

So I don’t know how to break this to you but…

I got a donut pan! Or is it doughnut? Guess what. I don’t care!

I had to break it in of course. Just like shoes.



And I had to break it in with a recipe that is healthy but doesn’t taste healthy. Because nobody wants a donut that doesn’t taste sinful. And seriously, these gluten-free donuts fit the bill! Just check the ingredient list! Then do a backflip. Then make them. 

My Peanut Butter Chip Donuts are cakey, moist and studded with little surprise peanut butter chips. Surprise! The best! And, of course, glazed with a rich, dark chocolate peanut butter glaze. Yes please!


Peanut Butter Chip Donuts (gluten-free)
Cake donuts get a healthy, gluten-free makeover without losing an ounce of flavor. They're moist, cakey, and studded with peanut butter chips. And, if you're feeling extra sweet (I know you are), glaze them with chocolate peanut butter glaze. (Yields 6 donuts)
Write a review
  1. ½ cup oat flour
  2. ½ cup brown rice flour
  3. 2 Tbs. coconut flour
  4. ¼ cup granulated Stevia (or sugar)
  5. 1 tsp. baking powder
  6. ½ tsp. salt
  7. ¼ cup creamy peanut butter, melted (I used Jif Natural)
  8. 2 large eggs
  9. 2 Tbs. fat-free Greek yogurt
  10. 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  11. 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  12. ¼ cup peanut butter chips
Chocolate Peanut Butter Glaze
  1. ½ cup dark chocolate chips
  2. 1 Tbs. creamy peanut butter
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Spray your donut pan with nonstick spray.
  2. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients (oat flour, brown rice flour, coconut flour, Stevia, baking powder and salt).
  3. In a separate mixing bowl, combine the eggs, Greek yogurt, almond milk and vanilla. When those are well mixed, add the melted peanut butter.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and begin to stir. Before all of the dry ingredients are incorporated, add the peanut butter chips and stir. Stir until *just* combined and still slightly lumpy (do not over-mix).
  5. Use a spoon, piping bag, or small cookie scoop to portion out the batter into the donut pan, leaving a small amount of room in the top of each. (wipe off the center metal piece of each donut)
  6. Bake for 15 minutes. When checking for doneness, your toothpick should be slightly moist, not sticky and not dry.
  7. Let the donuts cool in the pan for a couple minutes before turning them out on a wire rack to finish cooling. If you're going to glaze the donuts, wait until they're fully cooled to do so.
  8. Glaze: Combine the chocolate chips and peanut butter in a wide-rimmed bowl and microwave for 1 minute, stopping to stir it half-way through. If needed, microwave for 20 more seconds to finish melting them together. Carefully dip the tops of each donut into the glaze, letting the extra drip off before flipping them and letting them set on a wire rack. You can place the donuts in the fridge to speed up the setting process.
  9. Store the donuts in an air-tight container in the fridge until you're ready to serve them. Enjoy!

    Seriously, I’m convinced that there is a God based solely on the existence of peanut butter chips! Is that blasphemous? 😉

    Gahhh, I can’t wait to try my donuts tomorrow! Oh yeah, did I fail to mention that I ran out of time tonight before work to actually TASTE them?! But at least I got to lick the batter from the bowl! Lol And after seeing your pics, they are most DEFINITELY getting coated in chocolate…and SPRINKLESSSSSSSS! Yep, mama’s making a special trip to the store after work just for those bad boys! For the record, I have no idea why I just referred to myself like that as you and I both know I can’t even keep a plant alive, much less a child. Hey instead of being a crazy cat lady, I’ll just be a crazy donut lady…and between yours and my recipes, I know I won’t end up obese! Sound like a plan? Done!

      First of all, Congratulations!!!
      Second, I HOPE they buy it for you. If not (I had one on my registry too and nobody bought it) I got this for $9 at Michaels AND used a coupon so I got it for like $4!
      Hopefully everyone buys your registry stuff! I’ve been to some weddings where the registry is fully bought out and there are only chip clips and random DVDs to choose from…and then there’s my wedding where I got, like 10 items from my 3 extensive registries. Totally weird and a big bummer! You’ll probably have better luck than I did!
