Oreo Cookies and Cream Donuts

Oreo Cookies and Cream Donuts

Homemade Oreo Cookies and Cream Donuts are baked, not fried, and ready in just 20 minutes!

Today we have a fresh batch of fluffy chocolate donuts topped with creamy vanilla frosting and plenty of crushed Oreo cookies. I think it goes without saying… these donuts are incredible! So let’s get down to business...

Ingredients

For the Chocolate Donuts:

 

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder, sifted
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg, at room temperature
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup milk (almond, skim, whole, reduced fat, or soy will all work)

For the Cream Cheese Frosting:

 

  • 4 ounces cream cheese, VERY soft
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 and 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar, sifted, more as needed
  • 1-2 tablespoons milk (almond, skim, whole, reduced fat, or soy will all work)
  • 1 cup Oreo cookies, chopped, for decorating
 

Preparation

For the Chocolate Donuts:

    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F). Generously grease a donut pan; set aside.
    2. In a large bowl whisk together the dry ingredients. In a separate bowl whisk together the wet ingredients, then gently pour them into the dry ones. Fold ingredients together until just combined.
    3. Spoon mixture into prepared doughnut pan, and bake for 9-10 minutes, or until the donuts spring back when lightly pressed. Be careful not to over bake here!
    4. Allow doughnuts to cool a few minutes in the pan before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
 

For the Cream Cheese Frosting:

  1. In the bowl of a stand-mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, or in a large bowl using an electric handheld mixer, beat the cream cheese, butter, and vanilla extract on medium-high speed until completely smooth; about 2 minutes. Reduce the speed to low and gradually add the sifted confectioners' sugar. Add in the milk. Once the milk is combined beat frosting on high-speed for 1-2 minutes.

Assembly:

  1. Spread the frosting on top of each cooled donut then sprinkle each with a few teaspoons of chopped Oreo cookies. Serve at once! Donuts are best eaten the day they are made.

Oh my goodness, these donuts look downright DREAMY! I am definitely onboard with the idea of eating cookies and cream for breakfast in baked donut form!

These cookies and cream donuts are so simple to make and are ALWAYS a crowd-pleaser! Trust me – if you’re serving a crowd, make multiple batches. I’ve seen friends eat up to three of these donuts in one sitting. Enjoy!
