Would you consider yourself a donut lover or hater? I typically find that people fall on either side of the donut spectrum. I happen to really enjoy them.

Especially a good cake donut, or a frosted and decorated donut. I go with both extremes, loving the simple option as well as the creative and extravagant ones.

I’m shocked I don’t have more whole wheat donut recipes on the blog. We bake blueberry whole wheat donuts often and now these healthy peach crisp donuts are our new summer norm. In our house, we enjoy a baked donut recipe that’s healthy.

I like exposing Camryn to fruit and making it seem like a fun experience through whole grain donuts. These protein donuts are also great for satiety, since they’re made with greek yogurt. See more about why I love greek yogurt in this greek yogurt smoothie roundup

When I googled “peach donut,” it was often confused with a “donut peach.” If you don’t know what a donut peach is, this article by Southern Living is quite insightful and explain the juicy donut peach. 

It may be good to know that July and August are donut peach season.

Not to confuse you, but today I’m sharing a baked peach donut recipe. If you ever find yourself searching for a healthy peach donut recipe with fresh peaches, save this one!

What You Need For Healthy Peach Crisp Donuts

These healthy baked donuts are an iteration of my blueberry donuts, but we’re just using a different summer fruit! I really think it’s a great base for any healthy donut recipe, just switch out the flavor you’re aiming for. 

First and foremost, make sure you have a donut pan on hand to make this baked homemade donut recipe. I really love these silicone donut pans (great for kids, too), but this is a close second that has worked well for me.

This is also a high protein donut recipe, considering each donut boasts 7 grams of protein, thanks to the greek yogurt and whole grain flour. 

  • donut pan
  • whole wheat flour
  • brown sugar
  • egg
  • vanilla extract
  • milk
  • greek yogurt
  • peaches
  • baking powder
  • baking soda
  • salt

Healthy Peach Crumble Topping

The healthy peach crumble topping is easier than you’d think, and hands down the best part!

You’ll need:

  • whole wheat flour (or all purpose)
  • brown sugar
  • white sugar
  • salt
  • cinnamon
  • butter

This easy peach crumble topping is really what sets apart these baked donuts for me. You have a warm, delicate whole wheat donut topped with a crispy, sweet topping. It’s just SO PERFECT. 

Baked peaches with crumble topping is the only way I’m going to eat peaches now.

How To Make Healthy Peach Crumble Whole Wheat Donuts in 30 Minutes

You may know I thrive on quick recipes. In fact, most of the recipes on this blog can be made in under 30 minutes because that’s how we roll. We prioritize good food, but I also understand that there are other pleasurable parts of life to make time for. 

To make these peach donuts, combine your wet and dry ingredients in separate bowls and then mix them.

Pour batter into your donut pan and top with the crumble topping.

Pro Tip – Make sure to spread the crumble topping out and push down!

Bake for 12-14 minutes at 350 degrees. 

Can I Make Vegan Baked Donuts?

If you want to make easy baked vegan donuts, you can do so by substituting almond milk and a plant-based yogurt, like coconut, soy or cashew milk. I did not test this with a flax egg, but I think it should work. 

To make a vegan peach crumble, use coconut oil in place of the butter.

Other Notes About These Healthy Baked Donuts:

  • You can reduce the total sugar amount in either the whole wheat donut batter or peach crumble topping, or both
  • To make a gluten free peach crumble, you could substitute a gluten free flour (note: I did not test this)
  • Save extra diced peaches for the healthy peach crisp topping! Make sure to spread it out evenly and push down so it gets extra crispy in the oven. 
  • When pouring batter into donut plan, aim to fill it about 3/4 full. You’ll still need room for the crumble topping and you want to keep the hole in the middle!
  • Though these are protein donuts, I would still recommend pairing with another source of protein (egg, more yogurt, smoothie, etc) to get to about 20-30 grams of protein for a meal!
