Healthy Krispy Kreme Donuts

These homemade baked healthy Krispy Kreme donuts are the perfect way to satisfy a donut craving in healthy way.

Recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie (chocolatecoveredkatie.com)

Total Time 15 minutes
Yield 6 donuts


  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar or white vinegar
  • 2/3 cup milk of choice
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp coconut or vegetable oil (many readers say applesauce or mashed banana work for fat-free)
  • 1 cup spelt or all-purpose flour (A reader had success with gluten-free ap flour)
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup regular sugar or coconut sugar, or xylitol for sugar free
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • Combine first four ingredients in a small bowl, and whisk well. Preheat oven to 350 F and grease a doughnut pan if you have one. (If you don’t have a doughnut pan, you can cook in a mini muffin tin for doughnut holes.) In a large measuring bowl, combine all remaining ingredients and stir very well. Now pour wet into dry and immediately pour into the pan. Bake 15 minutes, then allow to cool before removing. Top these healthy doughnuts with jam, or chocolate frosting, or glaze. (My simple glaze recipe is linked under the second photo in this post.)
