Strawberry Doughnuts

I love fruit in my desserts, so the idea of baked strawberry doughnuts for breakfast definitely appealed to me. These doughnuts have more of a muffin consistency (fluffier, less dense) than the Baked Spice Doughnuts I tried previously, but they still made a tasty breakfast. I loved the juicy bites of strawberries in them. If you prefer your doughnuts super sweet, you may want to add a glaze to these, because they’re not overly sugary. I like them with just a hint of sweetness, but there are plenty of doughnut glaze recipes on the web if you do a search. I used agave nectar in place of the maple syrup in the original recipe simply because I had it on hand, and you could use either without affecting the points+ value. If you haven’t run out to buy a doughnut pan yet, I recommend it. These make an easy grab-and-go breakfast and everyone at work will be jealous when they see you eating doughnuts as part of your healthy lifestyle plan!

  1. Do you think I can use blueberries instead of strawberries for this recipe? I love blueberry doughnuts. 😉 if so..how many should I use? Thank you 😉

  2. Thanks Emily..I think I am going to try them tomorrow. 🙂 Thank You so much! I will let you know!

  3. Just popped my batch in the oven!! We’re taking them to a family brunch today, I’m sure they’ll be a huge hit!!

  4. I do the WW points but my son counts calories. What’s the easiest way to figure calories when they’re not provided?

    • I started calculating and including nutrition information for my recipes at the beginning of this year and I am working my way back through the older recipes to add it, but there are a lot to figure out! I use the free recipe builder at myfitnesspal.com to calculate the nutrition information, so if you’d like to know the calories before I get to this recipe, feel free to plug it in there!

    • Thank you….your recipes are amazing!!!!

  5. 4 Point Doughnuts?!?!? I am soooo happy 😀 Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  6. I just tried these but subbed the strawberries for 1/3 c. sliced apple which I cooked in the microwave for 2 minutes until they were soft. Turned out excellent! I’ll be taking a bunch to a potluck tomorrow. 🙂

  7. This maybe a dumb question, but how can I make doughnuts without a doughnut pan? Is there another kitchen tool I can use?

  8. I also subbed the strawberry for apple. I grated the apple and doubled the cinnamon and used honey in place of syrup. Thanks for a great recipe!

  9. I wish to do make this recipe in doughnuts maker. I cant make?

  10. I may have overlooked it, but I’m assuming a serving is 1 donut, correct?
