I am so excited about these chocolate baked donuts it is not even funny. I thought they were the best baked donuts I have ever made and I have made a couple recipes already Blueberry Whole Wheat Baked donuts and Just Healthier Donuts.

I have made other baked donuts in the past but this by far are my ultimate favorite.

I think these Triple Chocolate Whole Grain Donuts are the best so far. Again, these are baked not fried so the texture is different, but yet still AWESOME….and by the way the recipe is good for 12 good size donuts!

Well just let me stop talking about how good they are so that I can post some more pictures….. You be the judge.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THEM!!!….. Did I say I love them, Oh yeah I did….. sorry for repeating myself……..

Here you can see the divinity of these puppies. It is spongy like you wouldn’t even believe and so chocolaty it is unreal. I think the chocolate extract made a whole difference.

Triple Chocolate Whole Grain Donuts

Miryam's original recipe

Yield: 12 donuts

Total Time: 30 minutes


1 cup whole wheat pastry flour, You can use 1 3/4 cups of whole wheat pastry flour if you don't have oat and barley flour
1/2 cup oat flour
1/4 cup barley flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup unrefined sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon aluminum baking powder
1/2 teaspoon aluminum baking soda
1 cup low-fat milk plus 2 tablespoons
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/3 cup dark chocolate chips
1 teaspoon chocolate extract

To decorate

6-8 oz white chocolate chips, I used Ghirardelli brand


Preheat oven to 325°F. Prepare pan by spraying donut pan with cooking oil or butter, I actually use butter.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk eggs, milk, sugar, chocolate extract, and oil. Add flours, baking powder baking soda and cocoa powder. Whisk until combined. Carefully fold in chocolate chips. Fill each donut hole 2/3 full.

Bake for 17-22 minutes. Cool for about 10 minutes and remove from pan to a wire rack. Cool completely.

To decorate, melt chocolate chips in the microwave 30 seconds at a time making sure to mix in between each 30 seconds. Mine melted after 1 minute and 30 seconds. Use any method to make a decorative effect on the donuts

Tip: Make sure you grease the pan all over specially in the middle round donut piece otherwise they will stick when getting them out of the pan, probably breaking apart in the process.

  1. Toma ya!!!! unos donuts “sanos”…que ricos han de estar…me apunto la receta.

  2. I guess this means I need to buy that donut pan now!

  3. You did it! You created something healthy that my husband really loves! Sometimes he’ll say something like whatever I made is “okay for something healthy,” but he thought these were really yummy in general! Yay! I also really, really liked them. Thank you so much. :) And how did you pour the white chocolate? When I tried pouring it, there was always a big blob before I could get a stream (that makes no sense but hopefully you know what I mean.)

    I didn’t have any barley flour so I just used more oat flour. And there isn’t any chocolate extract here so I just used vanilla. Even with those changes they were great! This recipe made 12 nice sized donuts in case anyone is wondering.

  4. Hi Erin,

    I am so glad you and your husband like them.

    For the white chocolate, I actually used a piping little bottle device that I have but you can use a sandwich plastic bag, cut the corner slightly and use that as a piping bag. The effect is the same! This is what I used to do when I didn’t have this new device :-) Hope it helps and thanks for your kind comments and checking my blog.

    Have a great weekend

  5. Oh man. I’m so stupid. I have tons of piping bags and tips and didn’t even think to use them. I just melted the chocolate in a bowl and poured. Thanks so much for your answer! Now that I know your secret I’ll have to make these donuts again soon :)

  6. Maybe you should ask for a cut of the increase in doughnut pan sales this recipe is going to create! :) I definitely want to try this as soon as I get a chance to buy the pan.

  7. Hi – I am going to try these w/ gluten free flour to see how they turn out. I have a great soaked baked doughnut recipe that we love. You might wish to try it: I think yours look fabulous!

  8. OMG! im drooling just by watching those pictures. .looks super yummy. . wanna try it.=0

  9. estos donuts “sanos” son muy delicioso! lo hice para desayuno hoy. sin esta receta, no habria podido disfrutarlos con mi familia. muchas gracias!

  10. Helen,

    muchas gracias. Me alegro de que te hayan gustado :-)

  11. These were a hit in my house! I just bought one normal donut pan and one heart version. The batter was a bit more than I needed to fill 12. I didn’t have chocolate extract so I used vanilla and did 100% whole wheat flour. For the topping I mixed up some semisweet chocolate chips and a bit of milk chocolate and just frosted them with a knife. They have a different taste then traditional fried donuts, but they are still great. I might try to add a bit more healthy fat next time.

  12. I’m afraid I don’t have any chocolate extract but I do have chocolate liquor. Would that be a good substitute? I’m so excited to try these!
