You’re welcome in advance for your next Sunday morning recipe with these whole wheat donuts.

This blueberry donuts recipe is sweet and hearty. Made with whole wheat flour (extra fiber and protein), these baked blueberry donuts are sturdy and cakey, and topped with a delicious vanilla frosting.

A blueberry glazed donut with vanilla frosting is seriously a favorite in this house.

These healthy blueberry donuts are our newest obsession and are a fun iteration of my healthy peach donuts. But, don’t eat them for the health benefits; eat them because they’re delicious.

Whether you eat them with or without the icing, you’re in for a delicious treat. Some whole wheat donuts can be too tough and chewy, not these. They are soft and fluffy!

While I think donuts can be a fear food for some people because they typically provide no nutritional value and are high in sugar and fat, remember that not everything you eat has to be nutritious or full of nutrients.

We eat for so many other reasons.

Sometimes, you just want and need a good old donut and that’s okay. When talking with clients about challenging fear foods, we often discuss the labels we give to food.

Whole Wheat Donuts Ingredients

For these homemade blueberry donuts, you’ll need: 

And, powdered sugar if you want to add icing to make the best blueberry glazed donut recipe.

How To Make Blueberry Glaze Donuts

To make these delicious healthy blueberry donuts, start by preheating your oven to 350°F.

Next, spray your donut pan with non-stick spray so your blueberry donuts are easy to get out of the pan once they’re cooked. 

1. Mix Wet and Dry Ingredients Separately

In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and coconut sugar.

Grab a separate, medium bowl, and mix egg, vanilla, butter, almond milk (or milk of choice), and greek yogurt.

2. Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients

Once you combine them, gently fold in half the blueberries and chocolate chips, and save the rest to top.

3. Pour into Donut Pan and Bake

You’ll now have the batter ready for your blueberry donuts recipe and can go ahead and pour it into the donut pan, making sure to fill generously.

Use the rest of the blueberries and chocolate chips to top them.

Bake them in the oven for 15-17 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.

While the donuts are baking, combine powdered sugar, milk and vanilla extract for the homemade icing. If you’re adding icing for a blueberry glazed donut, wait for them to cool first, and then ice them and enjoy!

Homemade Blueberry Donuts are Family Friendly

If this blueberry donut recipe is wrong, then I don’t want to be right. 

I know strawberries and chocolate and even raspberries and chocolate get all the attention. But you guys, have you tried chocolate and blueberries? They are so underrated.

In fact, these whole wheat blueberry donuts may actually be my new favorite. Since we’re using whole wheat flour and greek yogurt, these protein donuts will hold you over, unlike regular donuts.

It’s no secret I love throwing blueberries into baked goods. Like my blueberry whole wheat bread and gluten free blueberry muffins.

It’s a great way o serve fruit for kids, plus ample fiber and protein. And extra calcium, Vitamin D and probiotics, thanks to the greek yogurt.

Letting kids enjoy the process of making (and eating) donuts is an important part of developing their relationship with food, and one I talk about big time in my post on intuitive eating for kids.

These blueberry glazed donuts are perfectly soft, fluffy and sweet.

FAQ and Tips

Do you have to add chocolate chips?

These whole wheat donuts are truly good either way, with or without the chips. So, your preference. Sometimes with the kids, we’ll do half with chocolate chips and half without.

Are baked blueberry donuts healthy?

Yes, these baked blueberry donuts are very nutrient-dense, as mentioned above. There is extra protein and fiber, which can help with satiety, as well as calcium, probiotics and Vitamin D, thanks to the greek yogurt.

How to store homemade donuts

As long as your donuts are away from the light and heat, you can store them room-temperature in a tightly sealed bag or storage container. If you don’t plan on eating them in 1-2 days, store them in the fridge for up to a week or the freezer for up to 3 months. If storing these whole wheat donuts in the freezer, I’d recommend to wrap them individually in parchment paper so they don’t stick to each other.

  1. Amazing! I made these tonight, and it was a hit with everyone! It’s nice to be able to enjoy something slightly more wholesome than other candy, just because it doesn’t leave you feeling run over afterwards ^_^

  2. YES TO ALL THE DONUTS! I’m more a fan of yeast doughnuts, but these have all the good things in them that would make me devour them 🙂 Dunkin ain’t got nothing on you 😛

  3. Just pulled the trigger on that pan – can’t wait to try these out! Any suggestions of thigns we can try to swap in and out for the blueberries?

  4. I love homemade donuts because they are like cake donuts, which are my favorite! I’m so glad you posted these; they look absolutely DELICIOUS. Pinning to try soon.

  5. Yeeeeppp. You know I was waiting for these suckers. The blueberry chocolate combo is DYNAMITE. Munchkin?? Is that another word for donut!?

  6. Holy Toledo! :-O I think donuts are one of my favorite desserts–I LOVE all things cakey and sweet! I am going to attempt to make this using a GF alternative and I’m sure it will still be delicious–blueberries and chocolate oh my gosh I’m so excited right now hahaha!

  7. I too used to never eat doughnuts, but now love the occasional treat. I haven’t tried making them myself but they are on my list of things to try. And these sound delicious, love blueberries in any baked good.

  8. Im not really a huge donut fan, but these look really good! It may be worth investing in a donut pan. I always loved the chocolate munchkins! I didn’t like the jelly ones so I would try to avoid any of the ones that looked like they might have jelly in them:)
