  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 2 teaspoons gluten-free all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup almond flour
  • ½ cup gluten-free oat flour
  • ½ cup gluten-free all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar (see Tip)
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla-flavor whey protein powder
  • 1½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup plain low-fat yogurt
  • ¼ cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon finely shredded lemon peel
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • 54 fresh blueberries ( ½ cup)
  • 1 teaspoon powdered sugar (see Tip)


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F. In a small bowl stir together the 2 teaspoons canola oil and the 2 teaspoons gluten-free all-purpose flour. Coat the six cups of a 3½-inch doughnut pan with some of the oil-flour mixture; set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl stir together the almond flour, gluten-free oat flour, the ½ cup gluten-free all-purpose flour, the granulated sugar, whey protein powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. In a large bowl whisk together yogurt, almond milk, eggs, lemon peel, the 1 tablespoon oil, and the vanilla until well mixed.
  4. Add the flour mixture to the yogurt mixture; whisk until well mixed.
  5. Spoon two-thirds of the mixture into prepared cups in doughnut pan, using about ¼ cup of the batter for each cup; spread batter evenly. Arrange six blueberries in the batter for each doughnut (see Tip). Bake about 15 minutes or until doughnuts spring back when lightly touched. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Using a thin metal spatula or table knife, loosen edges of doughnuts. Invert pan and tap on counter to release the doughnuts.
  6. Thoroughly wash and dry the doughnut pan. Coat three of the cups with the remaining oil-flour mixture. Fill these cups with the remaining batter and the remaining blueberries. Bake, cool, and remove as directed in Step 5. Serve warm or cool. Before serving, sift powdered sugar over doughnuts.
  • Tips: If using a sugar substitute, we recommend Splenda® Sugar Blend, C&H® Light, or Truvia® Baking Blend. Follow package directions to use product amount equivalent to ¼ cup granulated sugar.

  • We do not recommend using a sugar substitute for the powdered sugar.
  • Placing blueberries evenly in the cups helps to prevent the doughnuts from sticking in the cups.
