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.
