Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Glazed Doughnuts



So, I couldn’t stop after the pumpkin doughnuts.

You know I can’t stop at just one when I make something that tickles my fancy. The wheels got turning yesterday and before I knew it, the most insane doughnut appeared before my eyes.

This is what you get when you combine a delicious whole wheat doughnut + chocolate chips + mouth-watering cookie dough glaze


Key words being: Cookie Dough Glaze!

While the whole wheat doughnuts were baking, I whipped up this easy cookie dough glaze that is so mouth-watering I almost forgot about the doughnuts in the oven.



The outcome = chocolate chip cookies + cookie dough in doughnut form. Definitely a winner!!


Stick a few candles in there and you have yourself a fun birthday dessert. Birthday cake


Eric loved these doughnuts so much he jokingly suggested I sell the recipe to Tim Horton’s or Dunkin Donuts. ;) I’m not sure if they could handle all this vegan goodness, but I know you guys can!

Oh wow! The glaze alone looks amazing :)


Cait's Plate August 17, 2011

Well, I was starving BEFORE I read this post and now I’m only worse for wear! These look absolutely amazing. I don’t think I could choose between these and the pumpkin spice…would definitely have to make both :)


Bev Weidner August 17, 2011

I think I just died.

Yep, I died.


Heather (heathers dish) August 17, 2011

I can’t let my hubby see this…I’ll never hear the end until I make them!


Leanne @ Healthful Pursuit August 17, 2011

Congrats, Kayla!
Very awesome doughnuts, my gosh. When I get back from holidays in Sept I’m going to have to whip out the doughnut pan and get to work!


jenna August 17, 2011

i love when you get out ofcontrol with the doughnut making! :) these look stunning! and who doesn’t love c. chip cookie dough???


Ally C August 17, 2011

My eyes are saucers. Yummmm


Brittany @ B Out There August 17, 2011

1) These look out of this world
2) I definitely thought it read “combine a delicious whole wheat doughnut +(“plus”) chocolate chips +(“plus”) mouth-(“minus”)watering cookie dough glaze”. hehehe. Plus mouth. I was wondering how you subtract a “watering cookie dough glaze”, and then the synapses in my brain remembered how to work.


Angela (Oh She Glows) August 17, 2011

LOL too funny!


Caitlyn August 17, 2011

I was sold at chocolate chip cookie dough. The fact there was a donut under the glaze just made it better!


Abby @ Abz 'n' Oats August 17, 2011

You are so talented! :) The donuts look great! My manfriend would love them!


Ash @ Good Taste Healthy Me August 17, 2011

omg I’ve never wanted to buy a doughnut mold so badly…but I’m afraid that it would become one of THOSE kitchen gadgets that just takes up space and I don’t end up using again.


Angie August 17, 2011

Another awesome recipe. I have been following your blog for a couple of months now and I absolutely love it. Do you have any plans to release a cookbook, because I would buy it in a heartbeat. Keep up the great work!


Angela (Oh She Glows) August 17, 2011

Thank you so much Angie! I do have a goal of writing my first cookbook..thanks for the encouragement! :)

Ellie@fitforthesoul August 17, 2011

I love incorporating any kind of protein into my baked treats! Especially with a nut butter. I can see how this would be really creamy and good b/c cashew flavor hides pretty well in most dishes (unlike PB), and make this cookie dough flavor! Genius. :)


Kathy August 17, 2011

I am just suddenly very hungry…and in the baking mood ;) bwaha :3 bookmarked these!!

Stacy @ Say It With Sprinkles August 17, 2011

Yummy! All these doughnut recipes are reminding me that I’ve been wanting a doughnut pan for awhile now but trying to ignore it, haha!


Wendy Irene August 17, 2011

I really wish you had a bakery near me so I could try one of those without having to make them myself ;) Have a great day!


Katelyn @ Chef Katelyn August 17, 2011

Awwwwyeahhh, donut time!!! <3


Jackie @ That Deep Breath August 17, 2011

Sarah @ Sarah's Modern Bites August 17, 2011

I never in a million years would have thought of chocolate chip COOKIE DOUGH donuts! You’re creativity is super inspiring Angela :)


Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga August 17, 2011

“My goal for this glaze was to take my beloved raw cookie dough and thin it out, while making it even more luxurious and silky at the same time”–

Wow, it looks like you succeeded. It looks stellar and both Katie and Jessica are awesome cooks, too! I would love to try that glaze. Frosting and I have a special relationship :)

Oh, and chocolate donuts…yes, chocolate and I have a special relationship, too!


Jessica August 17, 2011

I don’t think Dunkin’ Donuts could handle it! But I sure can! Yum Yum Yum :)


Balancing Sylvia August 17, 2011

My birthday was last month! So can we just make the creation of the doughnuts themselves the reason to celebrate??? The pumpkin ones already had me drooling but these look fan-flipping-amazing! Congrats to Kayla! My mom adores her blendtec :D


Angela (Oh She Glows) August 17, 2011

of course!


Olya August 17, 2011

Oh my…. that looks divine! Hopefully one day there would be enough demand for the fast food places to adopt healthier options.


Alexa @ Simple Eats August 17, 2011

I think I died and went to heaven…these look awesome!


Sonia (the Mexigarian) August 17, 2011

I nearly choked on my almond butter and pb sandwich while drooling over the images. This is going to the front of my ‘must make now!” recipe folder.


Lexi @ A Spoonful of Sunshine August 17, 2011

I’m already on amazon looking at donut pans.

And wait a sec, they’re donut pans that I won’t even be able to use during the next year because of college.

You had me under a donut spell :)


Lauren @ What Lauren Likes August 17, 2011

I am speechless with this recipe! YUM well done :)


Lorin August 17, 2011

Could you sub the cashew butter for another type of nut butter?


Kathryn (Flopoodle) August 17, 2011

OMG these look uh-may-zing. Thank you for sharing this doughnut journey with us ;)


Emily August 17, 2011

I don’t have enough self control to make these donuts!! They look great!!!


Callie August 17, 2011

I am in LOVE with your website!!! Our family is new to the vegan diet & we were getting frustrated by the numerous cookbooks we tried! We have LOVED every recipe we’ve made of yours! Thank you so much for sharing!!!


Jen V August 17, 2011

Hey!!! These look great, I had a question, any ideas on how they would turn out if I used a regular cupcake pan? Or substituted sugar with splenda? THANKS!


AGS @ WestWithFlight August 17, 2011
David August 17, 2011

Did you get paid for your Blendtec review?


Amy@ahealthyandhappyheart August 17, 2011

ok Seriously I need to get on this and start making donuts!


Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin August 17, 2011

This may be the most delicious looking recipe on your blog…ever. And that’s saying something because I’m absolutely obsessed with your no bake date squares! :D


sarah August 17, 2011

Can I just tell you that I decided to make your choc chip cookie dough balls the other day for my kiddies. They were having a playdate with two other little ones and had been running in and out of the house all afternoon. I loved how quick and easy they were to make, a good thing, I found out. I let each of the kids try one and they LOVED them! I rolled the rest and put them on a baking sheet intending to put them in the freezer. Went to change laundry and when I came into the kitchen the pan was empty! How can I be mad at a bunch of little kids stealing a healthy treat? They were a hit and the other mom asked for the recipe too!
Thanks for giving me healthy snack ideas, now I just need to plant my own cashew tree in the backyard!


Sandra August 17, 2011

Hi Angela, can you suggest a replacement for the whole wheat pastry flour? I’m intolerant to wheat but I definitely want to make these donuts and the pumpkin ones! I <3 pumpkin.

Where can I grab a donut pan in the Halton area? I drooled over yours in yesterday's post!

Kayla – congrats! You'll give that blender a great home!
