25 National Donut Day Treats

Food Health

Another day, another "national holiday" to get our mouths watering. Today especially because donuts are kryptonite. You can't say no to them. In fact, there's not one but TWO days of the year dedicated to celebrating these little bites of heaven. Ok, now that that's out of the way, here are some recipes (some healthy, some not) you need in your life — I may or may not be making all of them today:

1. Donut Ice Cream Sandwiches

3. Baked Samoa Donuts

Samoas (or caramel delights depending on where you're located) are the best Girl Scout cookies don't even try to argue with me on that one.

Here's another healthy recipe. Lemon and blueberry are the perfect combo.

16. Chai Spice Donuts


via feastwithme

Chai Spice Lattes are another obsession of mine. So obviously these had to make the list. 

17. Fluffer Nutter Donuts


via bunsinmyoven

If you've never had a PB&F (Peanut Butter & Fluff) Sandwich you're missing out!  

18. Healthy Coconut Flour Donuts


via tastykitchen

Coconut flour can be a little temperamental, but once you get the consistency right it's so worth it!

19. Baked Nutmeg Donut with Blueberry Icing

Another healthy take on the donut, but still just as delicious.

20. Vegan Orange Poppyseed Donuts


via mydarlingvegan

Yes I already had a poppyseed recipe on the list — but this is orange not lemon, so it's completely different as far as I'm concerned.

21. Baked Coconut Donuts


via tasteandtell

If you follow us on one of our two Instagrams (here and here), you already know we're obsessed with coconut. So this is really no surprise.

22.  Baked Red Velvet Donuts


via homemadehooplah

You can't have a donut list without adding a red velvet variety.

23. Vegan Pumpkin Carob Protein Donuts


via sensualappeal

If eating a donut can help keep my macros on point sign me up!

24. Blueberry Cake Donut


via kirbiecravings

Fact: I've never had a bad blueberry cake donut in my entire 23 years of existence. 

25. Boston Cream Donut


via seriouseats

Everything tastes better from made from scratch. So I can only imaging how divine these would be. 

Ta da! Now get to celebrating! ;)
