Jammy Breakfast Dough Balls

If you click on my affiliates links, I am going to receive a tiny commission. The products that I advertise are the ones I believe in.

We love these dough balls for an easy to prepare and balanced breakfast.

Our jammy dough balls are sort of like a breakfast doughnut, but with some added nutrients and delicious-ness. We love strawberry and mango varieties but you can really use any fruits or nut spreads that you like.

These contain whole grains which are a great source of fibre and B vitamins, as well as Greek yoghurt which contains protein, fat and the bone supporting mineral calcium. If we use a chia jam then we also have natural fruit which contains vitamin and minerals; this means we have ticked off all the components of a mixed aka "balanced" meal (proteins, fats, carbohydrates and vitamins / minerals); we don't need this all the time, but if we aim for this the majority of the time then we will have more balanced glucose levels which support our mood, satiety and vitality.


For the dough balls:

  • 1 cup wholegrain bread flour

  • 1 cup white bread flour

  • 1 tsp. instant yeast

  • 1 tsp. salt

  • 1 tsp. sugar

  • 1 cup Greek yoghurt

  • 1/2 cup warm water

For the fillings:

Go wild, we have tried these ones

  • Strawberry Chia jam - this is so quick and easy to make. I notice a shift in my little ones behaviour if he has too high GI foods like jam in the morning but you could obviously have shop bought strawberry jam too. I pop two cups of frozen strawberries (you can use fresh but frozen seem to cheaper right now!) until defrosted and mushy, then add two tablespoons of chia seeds and a tablespoon of lemon juice, mix together and leave to cool before storing in the fridge.

  • Mango Chia jam - as above but with mango

  • Blackberry Chia jam

  • Almond coconut butter

  • Peanut butter

  • Almond chocolate butter


We keep it simple here.

  1. Mix flour, yeast, salt and sugar together.

  2. Make a well in the centre and add Greek yoghurt and warm water. Add more flour / water if needed to achieve a dough like consistency.

  3. Knead for 10 minutes by hand or five with your dough hook.

  4. Roll into balls and bake in the oven or air fryer on 180oc for 10 minutes or until dough is soft and fluffy

  5. Use a pipette or syringe to squirt your filling in the centre.

  6. If desired roll in cinnamon or sugar.
