The BEST oreo donuts! Oreos in the batter and crushed Oreos on top of the white chocolate – so delicious!
It’s another donut recipe!
I thought it was about time to share another since it has been a little over a month since we shared our last donut recipe.
Our last donut recipe was one of my all time favorites because it incorporated my favorite fruit – blueberries! If you like blueberries and chocolate, I think you will like our recipe for double dipped chocolate and blueberry glaze donuts.
As much as I like blueberries, I really like oreos. And I especially like oreos in my donuts. So if you’re like me, you will LOVE these Oreo Overload Donuts!
I mean, what better excuse to eat cookies for breakfast than in your donuts?
These donuts are extra delectable because there are oreo pieces baked into the donut AND oreo crumbs on top of the white chocolate frosting.
But don’t limit yourself to feeling like you need to eat these for breakfast.
I’ll all about having a donut for second breakfast, mid-morning snack, afternoon snack or after dinner snack.
In my mind donuts are more of a dessert (hello sugar!) – I’m boring and like to eat PLAIN oatmeal for breakfast :)
Tips For Filling Donut Pan
This is the donut pan I use. Before filling the pan I spray it with nonstick cooking spray and use a paper towel to wipe the spray around each donut well.
Next I transfer the batter to a piping bag fit with a large round tip. You can also use a ziplock bag with one corner cut off. Twist the top of the bag closed and apply pressure with one hand and pipe the batter into the well. Do your best to evenly divide the batter among each donut well.
I found that piping the batter into the pan is less messy for me than dropping dollops of batter. Also, I think that piping the batter helps to make the donuts look more uniform.
Total Time Required
- 10 minutes to prep batter and fill donut pan
- 10-13 minutes to bake
- 10-15 minutes to cool and glaze
How To Make Gluten Free Donuts
I’ve made these donuts with both regular and gluten free flour with awesome results on multiple occasions. I recommend King Arthur’s Gluten Free Measure for Measure Flour. Use it as a one for one substitute for regular flour. Be sure to use gluten free oreos as well!
How To Properly Measure Flour
- Fluff the flour with a fork
- Use a spoon to scoop the flour into your measuring cup
- Use a butter knife to level the measuring cup
Sticking the measuring cup straight into the bag of flour will result in too much flour to be packed into the cup, which can result in dry baked goods.
More Breakfast Recipes
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 3 tbsp sugar
- 1 tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp salt
- 6 tbsp milk
- 1 egg
- ½ tsp vanilla
- 3 tbsp vegetable/canola oil
- 9 Oreos finely chopped that will go into the batter
- Oreo crumbs to top the donuts 5-6 oreos
- 2-3 pieces of Caniquik White Chocolate
- Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Spray a donut pan with cooking spray, use a paper towel to lightly spread/remove excess spray.
- In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, combine the milk, eggs, vanilla, and oil. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, mix just until combined.
- Finely chop the oreos or use a blender to chop them, making sure the pieces will be small enough to fit through the piping bag. Add the oreo pieces to the batter and mix to combine.
- Transfer the batter to a large piping bag or use a ziploc bag with one corner cut off. Pipe the batter into the donut pan, filling each donut hole about 2/3 full.
- Bake the donuts for 10 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Remove from the oven and let the donuts sit in the pan for 10 minutes before moving them to a wire rack.
- While the donuts are baking, pulse the other oreos in the blender into crumbs, these will be used for the topping. Put the crumbs on a shallow plate, set aside.
- Follow the instructions on the Candiquik package to melt the chocolate. After it is melted, let it sit for a few minutes to thicken up slightly, so it won’t be too runny when you dip the donuts.
- Dip each donut into the white chocolate, allowing the excess to fall off on a cooling rack. Let the chocolate harden for about 3 minutes, you want the chocolate to set just enough so it doesn’t run off when dipping the donuts into the oreo crumbs.
- Dip the donuts into the oreo crumbs, slightly pressing the donut into the crumbs so they completely cover the chocolate.
