Froot Loops baked doughnuts

So I am sure you have seen the pictures of cronuts/doughnuts/shakes studded with Froot Loops all over social media. I have, and was amazed at the things you can do with a packet of breakfast cereal!

I was inspired to have a go at making my own and although there is no way you can use the word healthy and Froot Loops in the same sentence these little beauties have the upper hand in that they are baked, not deep-fried. And they are teeny tiny.

Misses 7 and 9 loved them, the Hungry Dad, not so much. They are uber sweet but sometimes you need a sugar hit to get through the day.

You will need a mini baking pan for this recipe, available from speciality kitchenware stores.

1 cup Froot Loops

1 1/3 cups self raising flour

110 grams melted butter

1 egg, beaten

1/3 cup milk

ΒΌ cup thick Greek yogurt

3 tablespoons caster sugar

Froot Loops baked doughnut recipe


Preheat oven to 180C and spray a mini doughnut pan with non-stick cooking spray.

Take a large handful of Froot Loops and crush until a fine powder. You can do this in a plastic bag and banging with a rolling pin or in a mortar and pestle. Set aside

Put dry ingredients (except crushed Froot Loops) into the bowl and stir to combine.

Combine the wet ingredinets in a large jug, give it a brief stir, then pour into the bowl with other ingredinets.

Use a silver spoon to stor until just combined, add in crushed Froot Loops, give another brief stir until just mixed.

Place mixture into a piping bag and pipe into pan until each mould is 2/3 full.

Bake for around 7-9 mintes, then flip onto wire rack to cool completely.

Meanwhile make glaze: Sift 1 cup icing sugar into a bowl then mix with 1 tablespoon milk until it is a thick pouring consistency. You may need a little more or less milk. Dunk doughnuts into glaze then quickly press on extra Froot Loops.


Misses 7 and 9 recently prepared a high tea for us and the Froot Β Loop doughnuts were included on the platter πŸ˜‰

    Am I living under a rock? I haven’t seen fruit loop studded anything!!! I can see why it’s all the rage though, it looks so fab!

      Maybe I am just obsessed with all the sugar-lovin’ Insta folk! Seems everyone’s eating enough cronuts w/ Fruit Loops to give an elephant diabetes πŸ˜‰

    OH Mmmmmmm G! I dont think fruit loops should be a breakfast food, but when you throw them at a donut, totes legit eating. You are a baking superstar. Loves it! πŸ™‚

      Awww, Anna πŸ˜‰ This is so out of bounds for your elimination diet – thanks for checking it out. I actually can’t believe Froot Loops are still available – who would eat this for breaky?!

    These are very pretty doughnuts. The fruit loops have such gorgeous floral colours. I think these would be perfect at a children’s birthday party but a high tea would be nice too xx

      They are very child friendly! I gave some to Misses 7 and 9’s BFFs and they were in raptures. Or maybe it was a sugar high, can’t be sure πŸ˜‰

    I laughed when I arrive at this post and saw the opening photo. I love the look of these and wish they were around when I was 7 or 9 years old.
