Monster Cookie Mini Donuts

Ingredients:

For the Donuts

  • 1 and 1/2 cups peanut butter cookie mix (dry)*
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 Tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • For the Frosting
  • 5 Tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 5 Tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/3 cup whole oats
  • 3-4 Tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup mini M&Ms

Instructions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 375ºF and grease a mini donut pan** with nonstick cooking spray.
  • 2. In a large bowl, whisk together the peanut butter cookie mix and baking soda. Add the egg, butter, and yogurt and stir until combined.
  • 3. Transfer batter to a large plastic zip-top bag. Cut the tip off of one of the bottom corners and fill each donut reservoir about halfway up the sides.
  • 4. Bake in the oven for 7-8 minutes, or until donuts spring back when lightly touched. Allow donuts to cool in donut pan for 3 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • 5. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment (or with a hand mixer), cream the butter and peanut butter together until light and fluffy. Stir in the vanilla.
  • 6. Add the powdered sugar, a 1/2 cup at a time, mixing between each addition. Add the oats and continue mixing just until combined. Stir in milk until you reach desired consistency.
  • 7. Frost each donut and top with mini chocolate chips and M&Ms. Donuts will stay fresh sealed in an airtight container at room temperature for up to one week.
  • Notes
  • *I used a 7.2 ounce package of Betty Crocker peanut butter cookie mix.
  • **If you don’t have a mini donut pan, a mini muffin pan would also work.
