Calorie Count for Doughnuts

Loaded with calories, fat and sugar, doughnuts are not exactly light breakfast fare. If you're watching your calories but still can't shake the doughnut craving, opt for a mini version; these have about one-fifth the calories of full-sized doughnuts. Better yet, skip the doughnuts and choose oatmeal or an egg-white omelet with veggies.

Calorie Content

The lowest-calorie doughnut is the jelly-filled variety, which has 289 calories per 3.5- by 2.5-inch oval. That works out to 96 calories per ounce. A plain doughnut with no frosting or sugar coating has about 297 calories per 4-inch round, or 119 calories per ounce. The count goes up from here: A chocolate frosted doughnut has 303 calories, or 128 calories per ounce, and any sprinkles or nuts will only add calories.
