Chocolate donuts with crushed Oreo cookies baked right in, then topped with a vanilla glaze and more Oreos. For the kid in all of us.

Sometimes, there’s nothing better than an Oreo. Well, except for when you take a bunch of Oreos, crush them up, and put them inside chocolate donuts.

And then top those donuts with a thick vanilla frosting and more crushed Oreos.

Are you drooling yet?

When I was little, Rebe and I loved to watch The Parent Trap. In fact, in the years following its debut, I was constantly told that I looked like Lindsay Lohan. In fact, I got told I looked like Lindsay Lohan all the way through college. But by then, every single person would follow up with “but, I mean, before she became a drug addict and all.”

In fact, one time I was out in Brazil and a group of Brazilians thought I was Lindsay Lohan. They proceeded to call me “Leensee” the whole night and took pictures with me.

Tangent. Onto the real story.

So Rebe and I loved to watch The Parent Trap. And there’s that one scene where American Lindsay gives English Lindsay an Oreo. And English Lindsay says how she normally eats them with peanut butter. And then American Lindsay is like “So do I!”

So the second we saw this scene Rebe and I were all about trying this mysterious combo. And from then on, we were obsessed. We would eat Oreos and peanut butter almost every night.

Now, I know there is no peanut butter in this recipe. Rather, I am telling the story of my love affair with Oreos. They’re just perfect. I love theeem.

And because I can’t recreate Oreos nearly as well as the original recipe, I prefer to find fun ways to bake with them. Case in point: these magnificent donuts.

They’re soft, yet dense enough from the crushed Oreos to create an almost cakey brownie texture. The glaze has a small amount of cream cheese, which gives it a great tang and offsets the chocolate beautifully. And there are Oreos both in and on top of the donut.

Though donuts are typically a breakfast food, these are too good not to be eaten at all times of day. In fact, I had one for dessert last night.

And because we don’t want to be too gluttonous, these Oreo donuts are baked, not fried! So they weigh in at a remarkable 130 calories each, before being topped with the vanilla glaze. OK, now it can’t get any better.

Serves: 8-9 donuts
Ingredients
For the donuts
  • ¾ cup flour
  • ⅓ cup cocoa powder
  • ⅓ cup light brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • ⅓ cup milk
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons vinegar, white or cider
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 oreos, crushed finely
  • donut pan
For the frosting
  • 1 ounce cream cheese, softened
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1½ cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 oreos, crushed finely, for sprinkling
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a standard sized donut pan and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together flour, cocoa powder, brown sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk egg, milk, vegetable oil, vinegar, and vanilla extract. Add the wet ingredients to the dry, whisking to combine. Gently fold in the crushed Oreos.
  4. Transfer mixture into a pastry bag or large ziplock with a hole cut into the corner. Pipe batter into donut molds, filling ⅔ of the way up the molds. Bake for 10 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the donut comes out clean. Allow to cool 10 minutes before frosting.
  5. While the donuts are cooling, make the frosting. Combine all ingredients in a small bowl, whisking until smooth. The consistency should be thick but still thin enough to form ribbons when you scoop it from the bowl and back down. Dip each donut into the frosting and top with more crushed Oreos. Devour.

I was posting my Oreo Copycat cookies to FG when I saw your pic. To die for. Just awesome. Checked out your bio to see where the name came from. Nice story. My daughter graduates U of M in a few months. She is in the kitchen with me whenever she is home. She would love this recipe too!

SERIOUSLY!! Oreo donuts! With glaze. And crushed oreos. I was drooling before I even started reading. They look incredible and I love it that they’re *kind of* healthy and we can eat them all day long! I’ve never tried oreos and peanut butter, but maybe I should try it out soon..

I’ve been so excited to try this recipe and finally had the chance to today! The donuts were fabulous but my frosting didn’t turn out as thick and divine as your pictures 🙁 It was quite runny and I needed to add significantly more powdered sugar. Did you use different proportions?

Sarah | Broma Bakery
Reply

When I made them I used 1/4 cup of milk, so the 1/3 cup was a typo on my end. My apologies!! Hope you still enjoyed the donuts, and thanks for commenting Hai-Yen!

Reply

Unlike everyone else here I actually made the donuts. Whilst they look absolutely fantastic, they taste rather bland and the glaze recipe could do with having less milk – it is far too thin with the 1/3 cup of milk.

Sarah | Broma Bakery
Reply

Hi! I’m sorry to hear you thought they were bland. I’m surprised at this, as I know a few people who have made the recipe (including myself) thought they were packed with flavor! Did you use real Oreos? Just trying to troubleshoot what may have been the problem. As for the glaze, thank you for pointing out a mistake- it should be 1/4 cup of milk. I’ve updated the recipe!

Oh my!! These are just amazing and I wish I had some to start the week tomorrow.

These are amazing 😀 you did a really great job!
But I have a question.
Do you have the ingredients measurements also in grams and ml?

I made these for Valentine’s for my boyfriend and he is currently with a red face eating them all having a sugar overdose! Thank you so much for this and all of your recipes! 😀

These donut look delicious!
I have a tiny (maybe stupid) question… what do I do if I don’t have a donut mold?
Unfortunately I live in Italy and it isn’t to easy to find one here, can I use a muffin/cupcake mold instead?
I have never made donuts but these look so yummy, I’d be happy to make them even if in other shapes:D

Thank You
Roberta

Hi Roberta! You can absolutely make these in a muffin mold. They will probably have a slightly different texture from the way that they bake, but will be delicious nonetheless!! Thank you for stopping by and happy baking!

this looks AMAZING!!! But the problem is I dont have a donut pan. Can I just pipe the batter in circles?

Sarah | Broma Bakery
Reply

Hi Ayesha! Thanks for commenting. You can try that, but I’m not sure how well it would work. Alternatively, you can place foil balls into muffin tins, then pipe around them! Hope this helps & happy baking 🙂

Reply

Hi Sarah!!
I baked these beauties yesterday (by the way, I could have eaten the batter straight form the bowl, or the piping bag!!) and decided to frost them this morning. I must have done something wrong because my frosting is not as thick and gorgeous as yours, so I added some more cream cheese and powdered sugar. It doesn’t matter! I think I’ll put the frosting in a bowl and will let people dunk the donuts there, what do you reckon? The donuts on their own are wonderful and one of the easiest! LOVE THEM!

Hi Arantza! Sorry to hear your frosting was a bit wet. You did the right thing by adding more cc & powdered sugar! I’ve heard that it was pretty liquidy for others, too, so it must have to do with the summer humidity. I’ve altered the directions in the post to give a smaller range of milk to start with 🙂 Thank you & happy baking!!

Hi!
Two questions. One do i crush whole cookie or do i have to take the filling out first? And second. Will they still be good the next day? I want to take them to my colleagues but i would have to make them 24h earlier :/
And btw my boyfriend who could eat oreos every day pretty much loves you for this recipe. I’m jealous 😉

Sarah | Broma Bakery
Reply

Hi Marta! Yes, they will be good the next day! And yes, you want to crush the entire cookie 🙂 Enjoy and let me know how they come out!!

Reply

I am wondering what kind of cocoa powder should I use, natural or Dutch one? Thank you. Can it be interchangeable?

Sarah | Broma Bakery
Reply

I used natural in this one! Dutch would come out differently, as it is washed in a solution that neutralizes its pH! So when a recipe calls for cocoa powder, always use natural, unless Dutch is specified 🙂

Reply

Love this recipe, can’t wait to try it. Quick question, the crushed Oreo’s that go into the batter, is it just the cookie part or the whole Oreo cookie icing and all?? Thanks!

Sarah | Broma Bakery
Reply

Hi Cathy! The entire Oreo, icing and all, goes into the batter!

I’m a donut lover and I can’t resist Oreos so imagine my reaction when I saw these !!! Just wow !

Fantastic recipe. A new favourite. I made for Canadian thanksgiving for the non pumpkin pie eaters and were a hit. The glaze was a little thin for me but I added extra icing sugar and all good!

SERIOUSLY!!!! I am drooling all over my keypad…. this is so damn beautiful.

Hello Sarah! thanks for this recipe… really happy that I found it. i have just finished making a batch with my kids, and they had such a great time! the icing and sprinkled oreos were the best bit and they kept licking their fingers… now, to keep them from it until their dad comes home!
