5 Sweet Donut Recipes, but Still Healthy!: Greek Yogurt Cinnamon Roll Donuts


  • 3/4 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons of milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of white vinegar
  • 1 large egg

For the Cinnamon Sugar:

  • 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup dark brown sugar, packed
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons of milk

For the Vanilla Bean Cream Cheese Glaze:

  • 1/4 cup confectionersโ€™ sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1-2 tablespoons of milk
  • 1/2 vanilla (around 4.2 gr) bean, seeds scraped


  1. To make the cinnamon sugar, melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir in brown sugar, cinnamon, and milk. Bring to a boil; remove from heat.
  2. Preheat the oven to 160 degrees C. Coat a donut pan with nonstick spray. Pour 1 teaspoon cinnamon mixture into each cavity, spreading it out in an even layer.
  3. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, cornstarch, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.
  4. In a large glass measuring cup or another bowl, whisk together Greek yogurt, butter, milk, vinegar, and egg.
  5. Pour mixture over dry ingredients and stir using a rubber spatula just until moist.
  6. Scoop the batter evenly into the donut pan. Place into oven and bake for 7-8 minutes, or until donuts are slightly browned and spring back when touched.
  7. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat confectionersโ€™ sugar, cream cheese, milk, and vanilla bean seeds on medium-high until smooth, about 1-2 minutes. If the glaze is too thick, add more milk as needed.
  8. When the donuts are done, cool for 10 minutes and drizzle with glaze. Allow glaze to set before serving.
