Healthy Baked Gluten Free Vegan Raspberry Donuts Recipe

Baked Raspberry Donuts

We love our healthy donut recipes here. We’ve had the classic baked donut recipe, cinnamon bun donuts, and my favorite copycat Krispy Kreme donut recipe

After sampling a delicious raspberry donut from Dunkin’ Donuts, I had to give it a healthy makeover!

Are donuts healthy?

Donuts can easily be healthy, provided you use wholesome ingredients and bake them, instead of frying them! 

My raspberry donut recipe from scratch fits the bill. It is made without sugar and without butter, but you’d never tell. They have a fluffy cake-like texture and a tender exterior. They also take no time to bake!

Are donuts healthy for breakfast?

Donuts had previously been considered a breakfast food, but as most store-bought varieties are loaded with sugar and fat, having it for breakfast became less and less common.

However, my homemade donuts ARE perfectly healthy for breakfast. Secretly low carb, packed with protein and fiber? I call it a balanced meal! 

Vegan Baked Raspberry Donuts Recipe

How to make healthy raspberry donuts

Step 1- Preheat the oven and prepare your donut pan

Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Grease 2 6-count donut pans generously with cooking spray, to avoid the donuts sticking. Set the donut pans aside. 

Step 2- Prepare your donut batter 

Start by mixing the dry ingredients and wet ingredients separately. Combine the wet and dry mixtures, before carefully folding through your raspberries.

Step 3- Transfer donut batter into a ziplock bag and pipe into the donut pan

To ensure the donuts are cleanly poured into the donut pan, pour the batter into a ziplock bag. Once you have done that, cut a corner of it. Pipe the donut batter into the donut pan, 3/4 of the way full. Repeat until all the batter is used up.

Step 4- Bake the donuts

Bake the donuts for 12-15 minutes, until the donuts spring back slightly and a skewer comes out the center clean. Allow the donuts to cool in the pan for 10 minutes, before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. 

Step 5- Make your glaze

Prepare your sugar free glaze. Once the donuts have cooled, drizzle the glaze over the tops of the donuts.

Storing baked raspberry donuts

  • Room temperature- Donuts can keep at room temperature, but ensure they are kept covered or in a sealed container. Room temperature donuts should be eaten within 2 days. 
  • Refrigerator- It’s best to keep the donuts refrigerated, as they will maintain their freshness this way. Refrigerate donuts by placing on a plate and covering in plastic wrap. Raspberry donuts will keep for up to 5 days. 
  • Freezer- Baked raspberry donuts are freezer friendly and can be stored in the freezer. Wrap donuts individually in parchment paper and place in a ziplock bag or shallow container. Frozen donuts will keep fresh for up to 2 months.

Re-heating frozen donuts

To enjoy donuts from the freezer, allow donuts to thaw at room temperature. Once at room temperature, you can re-heat in the microwave for 30 seconds or toast in the oven.
