Super moist, greek yogurt chocolate donuts that are baked, not fried. Topped with a crunchy M&M’s® Coffee Nut crumble that will make any coffee lover swoon.
I’m sure this is something that we can all agree on.
We all love donuts!
I mean really, who doesn’t love a freshly baked donut? How can you resist? I can’t.
When I was younger, I remember my dad would drive all the way to Tampa at 6am on the weekend to get to our favorite donut shop before they sold out of our favorite donuts. I would wake up hoping to see that white cardboard box on the kitchen counter.
I don’t eat donuts that often now because I try to stay away from fried foods. So I thought it was about time that I tried making them myself at home.
Boy am I glad I did because these baked chocolate donuts came out so darn yummy! I didn’t feel guilty at all eating a few right when they came out of the oven since they were baked, not fried.
I know it’s predictable, but I sure do love having a steaming hot cup of my favorite Columbian coffee along with a donut. I don’t dunk, but they just go so perfectly together.
(Warning!!! Don’t fill up your donuts with the mix this high! This was my first batch, and the batter puffed up really high, and they came out more like muffin top donuts! Delicious, but not right.)
Baked Chocolate Donuts Go Perfectly with M&M’s® Coffee Nut
When I heard that there was an M&M’s® Flavor Vote contest going on to pick the newest M&M’s® flavor between M&M’s® Chili Nut, M&M’s® Honey Nut, or M&M’s® Coffee Nut, I knew right away which flavor I wanted.
I basically live on coffee, so M&M’s® Coffee Nut had my vote before I even tasted them. Besides eating them straight from the bag, what could be better than topping my baked chocolate donuts with them?

Can you guess what makes these baked chocolate donuts so moist?
Okay, so it’s not really a secret ingredient. I’m sure you’ve baked with greek yogurt before. It’s my go-to staple ingredient whenever I want something I’m baking to be extra creamy or moist. Or, if a recipe calls for sour cream or oil, I almost always sub greek yogurt 1:1.
I have one more secret to share with you! Whenever I bake something chocolate flavored, I always put fresh coffee grounds in the batter. If I’m making a chocolate glaze, I add a little bit of black coffee to the glaze. The coffee flavor gives the chocolate a deeper flavor and basically enhances the whole chocolate flavor bomb that goes off in your mouth when you take a bite.
Oh, and feel free to top these baked chocolate donuts with whichever new flavor is your favorite! They would be delicious with any of them. Don’t skimp on the crumble, it’s the best part!
