Yay to donuts for breakfast!
 
 
These Blueberry Oat & Almond breakfast donuts are the best of both worlds- nutritious and scrumptious. What I love about this recipe is that it includes fiber dense oats, fresh antioxidant filled blueberries, healthy fats like almonds for that crunch and texture.  Since I try to reduce added sugar in my diet, I usually make these donuts without sugar or add zero calorie baking monk fruit sweetener from Lakanto. The cinnamon and vanilla also add a warm and cozy flavor touch to these donuts.  If you are craving some warm and toasty donuts, these are the perfect grab and go breakfast but also can be a perfect snack or dessert choice!

Servings: 4 medium donuts
Prep Time: 5 minutes 
Cook Time: About 15 minutes 
Total Time: About 20 minutes 
Author: Huma Naz
Ingredients: 
  • 1 and 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened milk of choice
  • 1/2 cup blueberries 
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds
  • 1 tbsp. sweetener of choice(I sometimes use monk fruit zero calorie sweetener)
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda  
  • ~4 tbsp. melted dark chocolate 
Directions: 
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F .
  2. Process the oats in a food processor until it is flour-like or use store-bought oat flour.
  3. Toss the oat flour into a mixing bowl. First stir in baking soda and cinnamon then add the vanilla, milk, sweetener, and egg.  Mash the blueberries with a fork then add it into the rest of the donut batter. Mix all the ingredients until they are combined well.
  4. Pour the donut batter into the donut pan(if it is non-stick you will not need to add oil to the pan). Bake the donuts for about 15 minutes or until golden brown.  Stick a toothpick into the thickest part of the donut and make sure it comes out mostly dry which helps determine if the donuts are done. 
  5. Once done, let the donuts cool down.  Then you can drizzle over the melted chocolate on each donut and sprinkle over the sliced almonds.
Recipe Notes:
  • You can store the donuts in the fridge in an airtight container for about 3-4 days.
  • You can melt dark chocolate chips using the double boiler method.
