Ever wish there was a healthier doughnut that you can easily make at home? Then this revolutionary new recipe is for you! Made with fillo (phyllo) pastry and baked rather than fried, these fillonuts are not only healthier but made in a fraction of the time that it would take for the traditional donuts or even popular cronuts that require days to create.

 

The fillo PB&J donuts taste great warm or cold and are perfect for back-to-school as a grab-and-go-breakfast, to pop in the lunchbox, or as an after-school snack. With just a few simple ingredients and no fancy kitchen tools or appliances required, these are affordable and easy enough to prepare in a small dorm or off-campus housing kitchen.

Creamy peanut butter with jelly yields a very smooth filling, while crispy fillo dough offers up a lot of texture. If you’re into chunky peanut butter then, by all means, use it and even sprinkle chopped peanuts on top. The best part is that these doughnuts don’t get soggy like your regular PB&J SANDWICH even after a day or two (I promise they won’t last that long)!

 

I really urge you to double the batch! These would be perfect to bring as a breakfast in bed for your special someone with a hot cup of joe. Just know they are flaky, so you might want to bring them on a big try to catch the crumbs. Save the recipe now to have it ready for Mother’s Day. They’re not just for kids, moms will love this treat too!

Since their invention, donuts have become incredibly popular. Even the purpose of donuts has changed. People are making bacon donuts, creating a donut for those without a sweet tooth. Others have made ice cream sandwiches using donuts, and you can even find hamburgers on donuts rather than buns offered by fair vendors.

Doughnut or Donut?

 

Some people believe that the word donut refers to the nuts that were placed in the middle of the dough to correct the problem of the uncooked centers. In 1809, with Washington Irving’s publication of A History of New York, the word “doughnut” appeared in print for the first time. By the early 1900s, the word was shortened to “donut.” Today, either spelling is acceptable.

 

If you’re new to using fillo, don’t fret (see the video below to aid you with this recipe). It’s OK if the pastry sheets tear up a bit. It won’t be visible once baked. It is also perfectly okay to throw a few sheets away. I still do it whenever I bake with fillo. There are plenty in the package to go around. I do, however, suggest that you find Fillo Factory’s pastry near you or order from their site because their quality is just unmatchable. For this recipe, I used the organic fillo dough.

 

Now you might say: Jas, I don’t care about calories, it’s just easier to buy some donuts, and I’ll say: true that, but what are you doing on my page then? Aren’t you here for a new food experience that will expand your culinary horizons? Yes, you are! You come here to find simple recipes from around the world. And sometimes we even invent recipes that you won’t find anywhere on the globe, like these PB&J fillonuts (I should patent them, lol).

 

If you’re really into lots of sugar, you can always glaze these peanut butter and jelly doughnuts with a half the batch of simple sugar syrup used for baklava. So, let’s get baking!

  • 6 tablespoons creamy (or chunky) peanut butter
  • 6 tablespoons jelly of choice
  • 4 tablespoons chopped peanuts

    COMPELLED to pin this just for the black out shot. Also, they sound tasty & a nice change of pace.
    Now, if only Mr Shoes would learn how to bake, make these, and bring them to me on the big sunflower tray with a cup of tea… then I’d be in business.
