Strawberry Doughnuts

I love fruit in my desserts, so the idea of baked strawberry doughnuts for breakfast definitely appealed to me. These doughnuts have more of a muffin consistency (fluffier, less dense) than the Baked Spice Doughnuts I tried previously, but they still made a tasty breakfast. I loved the juicy bites of strawberries in them. If you prefer your doughnuts super sweet, you may want to add a glaze to these, because they’re not overly sugary. I like them with just a hint of sweetness, but there are plenty of doughnut glaze recipes on the web if you do a search. I used agave nectar in place of the maple syrup in the original recipe simply because I had it on hand, and you could use either without affecting the points+ value. If you haven’t run out to buy a doughnut pan yet, I recommend it. These make an easy grab-and-go breakfast and everyone at work will be jealous when they see you eating doughnuts as part of your healthy lifestyle plan!

Strawberry Doughnuts

Yield: 6 doughnuts


  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour

  2. In a small bowl, combine strawberries and agave/maple syrup and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Add milk, egg and melted butter to the dry ingredients and mix until just combines. Stir in berry mixture.

    Do you think I can use blueberries instead of strawberries for this recipe? I love blueberry doughnuts. 😉 if many should I use? Thank you 😉

      Sure! I would just use the same amount, 1/3 cup. Hope they turn out great!

    I do the WW points but my son counts calories. What’s the easiest way to figure calories when they’re not provided?

      I started calculating and including nutrition information for my recipes at the beginning of this year and I am working my way back through the older recipes to add it, but there are a lot to figure out! I use the free recipe builder at to calculate the nutrition information, so if you’d like to know the calories before I get to this recipe, feel free to plug it in there!

    I just tried these but subbed the strawberries for 1/3 c. sliced apple which I cooked in the microwave for 2 minutes until they were soft. Turned out excellent! I’ll be taking a bunch to a potluck tomorrow. 🙂

    This maybe a dumb question, but how can I make doughnuts without a doughnut pan? Is there another kitchen tool I can use?

    I also subbed the strawberry for apple. I grated the apple and doubled the cinnamon and used honey in place of syrup. Thanks for a great recipe!

    I may have overlooked it, but I’m assuming a serving is 1 donut, correct?
