There is nothing quite like breakfast that should be dessert, and that’s what these are, or at least that is what we did. A special breakfast now and then is just what we all need. These peanut butter mini donuts are simple to make, and when dipped in a little jam, or maybe a little Nutella, are that much more delicious.

The first thing I have to say about making these peanut butter mini donuts is that if you are making them for more than two people, or even just for two people, you are going to want to double this recipe. My three kids devoured these and were looking for more! I had a small bite of one of one and that was it, they took the rest, and that little bite was not enough.
How to make them:
Cream together the peanut butter, sugar, and egg. Slowly mix in the remaining ingredients one at a time.
You can check out my simple donut recipe to check out how I fill my Ziploc bag quickly and with no mess. I also shared how big not to cut the tip off, so this time I made sure I didn’t do that again. Live and learn people.
Nice a small. The original cut, too big of a hole, was mistake number one. Mistake number two was using cheap Ziploc bags, I have since been buying only Ziploc bags, there are times when cheaper prices mean cheaper product and just aren’t worth the trouble. It lead to a blow out the side. I simply dropped this bag into a better brand baggie and continued on my way. Lesson learned, lesson shared!
See how nicely it fits into the mold when the end is cut, and not too big. My mini donut maker has two lights on the top, one for when it is heated and ready to go, the other for when the donuts should be cooked. Not all doughnut makers are the same, read your instruction manual to see how yours works. That leads to pretty, tasty mini donuts.
