Baked Peanut Butter Oreo Doughnuts // Wit & Vinegar

I also made all of you guys some of these doughnuts because 1) I’m feeling outrageous and 2) IT’S NATIONAL DOUGHNUT DAY!!

Since the oreo peanut butter combo is a favorite of mine I decided to just throw it all together in one doughnut explosion: Peanut butter oreo doughnut + peanut butter glaze + more crushed oreos because that’s kind of the most important part.

Why don’t more doughnuts have crushed oreos on top?

Alsooo, since it is the big day a lot of fabulous bloggers put together some doughnut goodness  for your faces:

Baked Peanut Butter Oreo Doughnuts

Makes about 8 doughnuts


For the doughnuts (recipe from The Candid Appetite):

1 c all-purpose flour

¾ t baking powder

¼ t baking soda

½ t salt

⅓ c brown sugar

3 T unsalted butter, softened

¼ c smooth peanut butter

1 large egg

1 t vanilla extract

½ c buttermilk

5 oreos, crushed up

For the glaze:

2 T smooth peanut butter

2 T whole milk

1/4 c + 2 T powdered sugar, sifted

pinch of salt

about 5 oreos, crushed up, for topping

Preheat the oven to 350.

To make the doughnuts, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl and set aside.

Cream together the sugar, butter, and peanut butter.

Beat in the vanilla and the egg.

Stir in half the buttermilk, then half the flour mixture, the rest of the buttermilk, and then the rest of the flour mixture. Fold in the crushed oreos. It might not seem like a lot but I originally put in about twice as much crushed oreos and couldn’t taste them any more so let’s hold back a little.

Grease the doughnut pan and fill each section 3/4 full and bake for 8-12 minutes, checking for doneness with a toothpick that comes out clean.

Once baked, let it sit in the pan for 5 minutes and carefully remove from the pan onto a cooling rack. These need to cool completely before we glaze them or else the glaze just runs off. Once cooled, make the glaze by mixing together all the ingredients, then dip the tops of the doughnuts into the glaze and sprinkle some of the oreo pieces on top.

    Can’t go wrong with choc + PB and Oreos and that glaze – sounds like the breakfast of champions! pinned

  • Emily @ Life on Food

    These are outrageous and I love every bit of them. I am trying to think if I have experienced Oreos and peanut butter before. I cannot remember so obviously I haven’t. I need to get on that ASAP.

  • Megan

    There are no words to describe the greatness of adding peanut butter to oreos.. especially in a drunken stupor.. I can get down with these donuts..

  • Lyndsay // Coco Cake Land

    i didn’t know. I DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT PB+OREOs. but i am going to try this combo. these look DANGEROUS. love them!

  • J.S. @ Sun Diego Eats

    I’ve always disliked the Oreo filling (I know I am odd) so I used to always scrape it off and give it to my sister then fill my oreos with peanut butter. Sooo this the way I always eat oreos in doughnut form. Yes.

  • Amanda @ Once Upon a Recipe

    Considering how much I love peanut butter and how much I love Oreos, I’m shocked that I’ve never thought to put them together. These look amazing!

  • Diana

    God, these look fabulous.


  • Molly @Doughvelopment

    Gobble these up emoji.

    Yes, to oreos on doughnuts!
    That peanut butter glaze is just dreamy.

  • Jade Sheldon-Burnsed

    YES. Just… YES.

  • Sarah | The Sugar Hit

    Firstly that scene in the parent trap is like, tatooed on the inside of my brain. I love it. Secondly, these donuts. YES. serious face emoji.

    Jiggawhat. I just pounded a full pound of PB pretzel nugs simply because it was the closest thing in my house to these donuts. And by the closest thing I mean not close at all. A total disappointment. And now I am so sad. To summarize: these are amazing. Tears. The end.

    Whut whut whuuut?! These look frickin’ amazing – and you’ve just transported me back to the parent trap days ha!

  • Amanda

    My god, these sound amazing. I used to watch Parent Trap on the regular when I was a kid. I never ate a plain Oreo since. Now I’m going to have to make these all the time.

    LOL. The Parent Trap was the instigator to my first time eating peanut butter and oreos as well!! These look fantastic. And thank you for the reminder that I haven’t made doughnuts in forever. I really need to get on that..

  • Ileana

    Heck yes! Perfect flavor combo.

  • Kate

    Gahhh I love The Parent Trap. Oreos and peanut butter make me weak in the knees. I think it’s time I bought a donut pan.

  • Stefanie @ Sarcastic Cooking

    I shamefully watched the first two episodes of LiLo’s OWN show. I had to stop watching because, well, it wasn’t that good and I kind of had a reality TV intervention with myself. I just felt I reached a new low. Anyway, what would be better than peanut butter and Oreo’s? PB and Oreo DOUGHNUTS! Lovely! I agree with your emoji fanfare.

  • Shikha @ Shikha la mode

    Can’t everyday be doughnut day?!

  • Renee @ Awesome on $20

    There’s just so much happiness up there! Doughnut day is the very best!!!

  • natalie @ wee eats

    I too spent many wasted years enjoying peanut butter and oreos separately until LiLo showed me how it’s REALLY done. I bet that led to a lot of her downfall. Chasing that first pb+oreo high and had to eventually move up to harder drugs. Luckily, I think these donuts are the farthest up I’ll have to move for my next high.

    F**k these look so good I want to lick the screen.
