Baked Chocolate Chip Donuts with Peanut Butter Glaze

Baked Chocolate Chip Donuts Recipe from A Kitchen Addiction

It’s Friday, and I’ve brought donuts! Big, fluffy donuts filled with chocolate chips and topped with peanut butter glaze. Just the way to welcome in the weekend, because who wouldn’t want a donut that tastes like a cookie? Especially a cookie topped with peanut butter!

Baked Chocolate Chip Donuts with Peanut Butter Glaze Recipe from A Kitchen Addiction

It’s been awhile since I’ve shared a donut recipe, almost six months! I obviously couldn’t let this lack of donuts go on for much longer. Since chocolate and peanut butter is always a good combination (at least for me!), it seemed that it was about time that I used that tasty combination in donuts!

Baked Chocolate Donuts with Peanut Butter Glaze Recipe from A Kitchen Addiction

A plain vanilla donut is used as the base and chocolate chips are stirred in. To give the donuts more of a cookie flavor, I used brown sugar in place of white sugar. A sweet peanut butter glaze is spread on top to finish off the donuts. The glaze tastes a lot like my favorite peanut butter fudge. So, don’t be surprised if you find yourself licking the spoon! The best part about these donuts, aside from the taste, is that they only take about 30 minutes from start to finish. Super easy. Grab a cup of your favorite coffee or tea and enjoy!

Side note: I made these donuts extra thick and puffy, but if you want to make them a bit smaller, feel free to use the batter to make 12 donuts instead of 6.
