Baked Oatmeal Cookie Doughnuts with Maple Glaze

Baked Oatmeal Cookie Doughnuts with Maple Glaze

You may never buy a doughnut again once you try this simple and wholesome baked version, featuring soft cake with oatmeal cookie flavor under a lustrous maple glaze. We baked these with our Original granola, but our Cinnamon Raisin variety would result in a cinnamonny, raisin-filled oatmeal cookie pastry.

Makes 6 donuts



1 cup flour

⅓ cup brown sugar

1 tsp baking powder

½ tsp salt 

¼ tsp ground cinnamon

3 tbsp butter, melted

1 egg

½ cup milk 

1 tsp vanilla extract 

⅓ cup Michele's Original Granola


 Maple Vanilla Glaze

1 cup powdered sugar

½ tsp vanilla extract

1 tbsp maple syrup

3-4 tbsp heavy cream

Optional: natural food coloring for the glaze, and extra granola and/or sprinkles for topping

  1. Preheat the oven to 350.
  2. Make the Donuts: Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. 
  3. Whisk in melted butter, milk and vanilla extract until combined.
  4. Fold in granola.
  5. Spoon into donut shaped baking pan, filling cavities ¾ of the way. 
  6. Bake for 8-10 minutes.
  7. Maple Vanilla Glaze: Whisk together powdered sugar, vanilla extract, maple syrup, and heavy cream. If glaze seems a bit too thick, add cream a tbsp at a time until it reaches your desired consistency, then add natural food coloring if you're using. 
  8. Dip the cooled donuts in the glaze, and immediately top with more granola and/or sprinkles before the glaze sets.
