Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Servings: 12 donuts


  • 1 ½ cups All Purpose Flour
  • ½ cup Sugar
  • 2 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • ½ cup Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 cup Whole Milk
  • ¼ cup Coconut Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla

Chocolate Glaze

  • 2 tablespoon Butter
  • ¼ Cup Milk
  • ½ Cup Semisweet Chocolate Chips


  • Preheat the oven to 400°. Spray your donut tins with cooking spray or brush with a neutral oil.
  • Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Set that aside.
  • In another bowl, mix peanut butter, egg, milk, coconut oil, and vanilla.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Do not overmix. Fill the donut pans with the batter. I find the easiest way to do this is by piping the batter into the pan, but you could just as easily spoon it into the pan. The batter will fill 12 donut pans.
  • Bake for 18-20 minutes depending on your oven. The donuts should be lightly browned.
  • Top the donuts with icing, or roll in cinnamon and sugar. Enjoy immediately.

To Make the Chocolate Glaze

  • In a small saucepan, heat the butter and the milk until just combined. Do not boil this mixture. Once it is heated through it is done.
  • Put the chocolate chips into a bowl. When the milk and butter mixture is done, pour it over the chocolate and let that sit for a few minutes. After a few minutes, mix the chocolate mixture until everything is evenly combined. It will look curdled at the beginning, but keep stirring and it will all come back together.
