Why choose between pancakes and donuts when you can have both?? These pancake mix donuts are made with a quality mix making them both healthy and quick, and then drizzled with a homemade maple glaze because who wants pancakes without some maple syrup?
I LOVE a good stack of pancakes but also who doesn’t want to be able to have donuts for breakfast?? Well now you don’t have to choose! I used my go to pancake and waffle mix for this recipe – Birch Benders Plant Protein – so these aren’t just healthy – they are packed with protein, they are vegan, and they are grain free??
I love making fun things with this mix because there is really so much you can do with it besides just making pancakes or waffles (which are also great)! And it can make baking so much easier.
If you want to check out another fun recipes I made with this mix be sure to check out my chocolate coconut pancake mix brownies. I also make these really fun syrup infused pancake poppers with this, or you can try my fresh paleo peach pancakes for a really fun summery option (this used a different Birch Benders mix but you could sub for this one if you want it vegan!) If you’re looking for a classic, try this McDonald’s pancake recipe!
For now let’s focus on these donuts 🙂 and this glaze↓
Let’s Make Some Pancake Mix Donuts!
This recipe is literally too easy. Take your pancake mix, combine with your water, and then bake!
I like using my silicone mini donut pan. I love everything mini so that’s fun and then silicone donut pans make life SO much easier. Easier to clean and easier to get the donuts out in one piece!
Just bake them in your oven until they feel firm to the touch. Every oven is a little different any I swear mine has a mind of its own sometimes – but it took mine about 15 minutes. Keep in mind if you use a full size donut pan it will take longer! And they will rise a little so don’t fill the mold all the way to the top.
The glaze is super easy to whip together but it will be super sticky so just be prepared! Keep a napkin nearby while you eat, but I promise it is worth it 😉
In addition to the listed ingredients, you will need:
- a donut pan (I used a mini one and I recommend a silicone one)
- oil to grease your pan
- a cookie sheet to place it on (if using a silicone pan)
- a bowl and whisk or fork for the glaze
Enjoy your donuts!Print
