Greek Yogurt Baked Donuts

This recipe for Greek Yogurt Baked Donuts are so delicious and easy to make. The recipe makes about 8 donuts. Baked and not fried is the way to go!

Here is another delicious baked donut recipe that I recently came up with when I had a container of Greek yogurt that was going to expire in a few days.

I hate wasting food.

I had wanted to bake something with this container of Greek yogurt. Just couldn’t think of something at the moment.

It had been awhile since I used yogurt in a baked recipe and this was the perfect time.

The donut pan was staring back at me in the pantry so, I grabbed it and got going trying to think up a yummy donut recipe.

These came out terrific.

My family loved these wholesome donuts and so did I. My husband grabbed two to take to the office the next morning and my son packed one in his lunch box.

Give this recipe a try, bake a batch soon. They’re really good!

 Greek Yogurt Baked Donuts

Yields: about 8 donuts

What you’ll need to make these Greek yogurt baked donuts…


  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour, or use all of one of these flours
  • 1/3 cup organic cane sugar or regular cane sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp sea or kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup milk, I used 2 percent
  • 1/4 cup plain Greek Yogurt, fat free or 2 percent both work for this recipe
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tbsp butter or coconut oil, melted and cooled
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg


  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar, sifted
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon, optional

Here’s how to make a batch of Greek yogurt baked donuts…


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, spray a nonstick donut pan or a silicone donut pan,(I just bought these and really like the way they worked in this recipe) lightly with cooking spray with or without flour. Set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine all dry ingredients with a whisk.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, combine all wet ingredients with a small whisk or fork until smooth.
  4. Add wet into dry and mix with a rubber spatula just until combined. Make sure you dig down in the bowl to incorporate all dry ingredients into the wet. Try not to over mix the batter.
  5. Spoon batter into donut pan about 3/4 to the top. If you have leftover batter, wait until this batch is finished then spoon the remaining into pan or use another donut pan.
  6. Bake for about 8 to 11 minutes. Test after 8 minutes. A toothpick should come out clean or with dry crumbs. The tops should spring back slightly when touched lightly.
  7. Let cool in pan about 10 minutes. While cooling, sift powdered sugar with cinnamon if using.
  8. Invert pan and let donuts fall out onto wire cooling rack. Let cool another 5 minutes.
  9. Dip into powdered sugar on one or both sides.

Enjoy the donut deliciousness!
