10-Ingredient Healthy Chocolate Doughnuts:

Preparation Time: 10 Minutes
Serving Size: 6 Servings

Donut Ingredients:

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup granulated palm coconut sugar
  • ½ tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 organic egg
  • ¼ cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or any milk)
  • ¼ cup plain Greek yogurt (can also use vanilla)
  • 2 Tbsp. infused coconut oil or butter
  • Optional: 2 Tbsp. chocolate chips, melted (for a more chocolatey donut)
  • ½ tsp. vanilla extract

Glaze Ingredients:

  • ¾ cup powdered sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract


  • ¾ cup vanilla protein powder
  • 2 Tbsp. unsweetened vanilla almond milk


  1. Preheat oven to 375ºF and lightly grease a standard donut pan.
  2. For the donuts: In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, and baking soda. Stir until well combined and set aside. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, yogurt, infused coconut oil or butter, melted chocolate, and vanilla. Mix well before adding to flour mixture and stir gently until just combined.
  3. Use a piping bag or ziplock bag with one corner cut off to pipe the batter into your prepared pan, filling each one about ⅔ full. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until donuts spring back when touched. Allow to cool before applying the glaze.
  4. For the glaze: Combine sugar, milk, and vanilla in a medium sized mixing bowl, stirring until smooth. Feel free to add more sugar (to thicken) or milk (to thin) to achieve desired consistency.
  5. Place a wire rack on a sheet of parchment paper or baking sheet. Dip each donut into the glaze, using a fork to turn it over so that both sides are well coated. Remove from bowl and place on wire rack to set. Repeat until all donuts are coated.
