Oven baked lemon donuts


Well, spring has just arrived now that i upload this recipe, lemon flavor is always amazing this time of year! Of course oven baked donuts remind more of a cake/muffin, but my daughter loves them and it’s a brilliant recipe to avoid frying.

I use oats flour and coconut sugar for a healthier version, but normal flour and white sugar will do. If you use white sugar their color will also be lighter.


For the donuts:

  • 4/3 cups oat flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 2/3 coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 40 grams melted butter or margarine
  • 1/3 cup light milk
  • 1/3 cup Greek yogurt 2%
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon agave syrup or honey
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • 1-2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 drops of vanilla extract

For the lemon glaze:

  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 3/4 cups powder sugar
  • 3 drops yellow pastry color (optional)


  • Stir the eggs with the sugar, agave, milk, yogurt and melted butter.
  • Add the lemon zest and juice, salt, vanilla and baking powder.
  • Add the flour little by little and stir. The consistency should be thick as a cake, so add more milk if it gets too thick, or add flour if it is runny.
  • Divide evenly in a silicon donut tray (coat with some butter so that they don’t get sticky) and bake for 13 minutes in a preheated oven at 170C.
  • Let them cool.
  • Mix the lemon with the powder sugar to make the glaze.
  • Dive each donut in the glaze and serve!
  • You can decorate with sprinkles, lemon zest, poppy seeds etc.
