These Coffee Donuts with Peanut Butter Chocolate Glaze can be prepped, baked, rested and garnished in under 25 minutes!  Yes, you read that right.  In no time at all you can have freshly baked donuts, from scratch, in your piehole faster than it will take you to drive to your favourite coffee shop.  These babies are baked so they are way more guilt free than their fried counterparts.  Espresso powder gives the base of this donut a lovely coffee touch and then there’s a super easy  peanut butter chocolate glaze made with natural peanut butter and cocoa powder.  What are you waiting for?  Yummy donuts await!

This Monday is brought to you by DONUTS!  You know that day of the week that most people kinda despise?  These donuts make Monday and little more bearable.  Plus, they are not as indulgent as you may think.  They are baked so the fat content in these little beauties is on the lower side. You may just be able to eat two.  You’re welcome!  Have you ever read the nutritional content on some of those fried store bought/bakery donuts?  You probably shouldn’t.  For reals.  It will probably scare you or, more likely, just ruin the dang thing for you.  Make donuts at home; there’s no turning back once you do!

So if you read my last Monthly Favourites for February, then you know that this chicka got herself a brand spankin’ new donut pan – a 6 unit one to be exact.  Annnnnd, that was totally intentional.  What I love about this pan (and this recipe), is that there’s a small batch of donuts made.  No one needs 12 donuts floating around their kitchen, or at least I don’t.  Plus, donuts are SO much better made and eaten fresh, so 6 is plenty.

Haven’t ever made homemade donuts before, I consulted the wrapping that came on my Wilson pan.  There was a base recipe for donuts that I adapted for my own tastes and that Peanut Butter Chocolate Glaze?  Well, that one came outta my head and it is goooo-ooood!  I’ve been  obsessed with peanut butter, chocolate and coffee lately and one of my favourite smoothies is based on that flavour profile.  Coffee Donuts with Peanut Butter Chocolate Glaze - girlheartfood.com

Dunk these bad boys in that Peanut Butter Chocolate Glaze, then sprinkle some nuts on them like you would confetti…..or as the cool kids say ‘make it rain.’  Truth be told, I don’t know what the cool kids say, but let’s pretend I do.  Just roll with it, ok?Coffee Donuts with Peanut Butter Chocolate Glaze - girlheartfood.com

The inside of these Coffee Donuts have a lovely, moist cake-like texture and they go absolutely perfect with a tall, cold glass o’ milk……or just shoved right in your pie hole if you’ve just come in the door and you’re ravishing<——-not that I’ve ever done that. #YesIHave.

My world has changed since I’ve got my new donut pan and I highly recommend you get your hands on one too.  It’s a lovely way to make fresh donuts right in your own kitchen for less dolla bills than store bought.  Plus, you can control what’s in ’em and they are way healthier than those fried ones.  Have on sold ya on a donut pan yet?  I wouldn’t steer you wrong!

      Haha! I totally know what you mean, Kevin….more like glaze with donuts and not donuts with glaze cause we know it’s alllll about the glaze when it comes to donuts…hehehe! Thanks, my friend 🙂

  1. Cindy says:

    I am crushing on your donut pan. I love the timing aspect too – 25 minutes! That is soooo doable. Love the peanut butter addition – so luxurious! Dreamin donuts tonight for sure!

  2. Jolina says:

    LOL you crack me up, I do love reading your posts! Argh and I do want a donut pan, I don’t know why I don’t have one dang it. I love simple glazed, which ironically (and I just read this somewhere) apparently has the most calories. Such is life. I’d love to make my own donuts! Therefore, donut pan! These look amazing and that glaze….THANK YOU for saying it’s OK to have two haha. Hope Monday treated you well Dawn!

    • Girl Heart Food says:

      Awwww, thanks Jolina! You need to get one of those pans. There’s no turning back for me now! Donuts EVERYWHERE! Hehehe 😀 Figures that simple glazed have the most calories. Oh well! Least these are baked so we have that 😉 Hope you’re having a great Monday too!

  3. Cheyanne @ No Spoon Necessary says:

    Mondays most DEFINITELY need donuts. That should be a rule if you ask me. Yay to a new donut pan! I think you and I have the same exact one. Clearly you have excellent taste (I mean, I SAW those socks you were rocking on FB. Totally amazing). Anyways, I will only eat baked donuts, because I can’t refrain myself from eating more than one (or 4), so they have to be baked. Baby needs donuts on repeat. 🙂 Loving the PB and chocolate combo! You can’t ever go wrong there!! Cheers, dear! xo

      Totally!! Haha! I love those socks. But I think I really do have a sock addiction…hehehe! I got a 6 unit pan because I didn’t want too many donuts going around, but now I wish I had a 12 unit pan because I want more donuts. Can’t win, lol 😀 Thanks girl! xo

  4. Laura says:

    Oh my word – could this be a more perfect combination. I’ve been wanting to get a donut pan…this tips it over the edge, I think. Yum! <3

  5. karrie @ Tasty Ever After says:

    This is brilliant! Coffee donuts with a peanut butter chocolate topping? Way to make Monday kickass Dawn! I could eat all 6 of these in one sitting, before that mouse can get any of them. I’ve got a dang mouse in my kitchen too. That sucker has quite the sweet tooth and is super quick! I’ll turn my back on any kind of sweets and when I turn back around, they are all gone!!! A-hole mouse 😉

    You do know you’re killing me, right?! I thought we were friends! I can’t handle that glaze….I can’t handle that coffee flavor…I can’t handle that we live so far apart!! I would do just about anything for a baker’s dozen of these babies right now! You know – I have donut pans, and now you’ve inspired me to get them out, dust them off, and have some fun! Thank you for that! Just what Monday needed! Have a great week, my friend! XOXO

      Hahaha! You are seriously making me laugh, Annie!! We are friends! And if we were closer, I’d be at your doorstep right now with a batch right out of the oven and a big pot of coffee! Have a lovely week too! XOXO

  7. Shashi at RunninSrilankan says:

    Haha – Dawn, I sure would’nt despise Monday if it were filled with these donuts – cos these are not just donuts but they are spiked with espresso AND glazed with a peanut butter chocolate glaze!!! SAY WHATTTTT!!! I’m getting delirious just imagining these in ma piehole with a gynormous mocha in my hand! Monday conquered for sure! Btw, baked donuts > fried donuts and homemade donuts > store bought ones – at least that’s my opinion and am sticking to it. I got me a donut pan a couple of years back and have made more donuts than I think I’ve bought since I had it – cannot wait to see what other creations come out of your donut pan, my friend! Happy Monday to ya – hope your week is wonderful xx

    • Girl Heart Food says:

      Right? Wouldn’t Monday be so much better if they started with a donut or two?? I love your suggestion of having with a mocha….yes please!! I like your thinking, girl! Thanks so much! Have a wonderful week too! xo

  8. David @ Spiced says:

    Oh man, I couldn’t agree with you more, Dawn! Every Monday should start with donuts. It’s just a requirement. Every day starts with coffee around here, and I’m totally wishing I had a doughnut or two (or six) to dunk into my coffee this morning. I’m loving that PB Chocolate Glaze! I also know that if I was a mouse, I would want to set up shop in your kitchen, too. Haha! Happy Monday, my friend!

    Aren’t donut pans the best? I’m sure you’ll have tons of fun with it. And baked is way better than fried in my opinion! 🙂 These coffee donuts are just what I need for this Monday morning. And I’m with you…all Mondays should involve donuts and giant cups of coffee! Especially if they’re smothered with peanut butter and chocolate. I just want to dive right into that glaze. Sounds amazing, Dawn! Pinned, of course! Hope your week is off to a wonderful start!
