Founded in 1950, Dunkin Donuts is an American multinational company. Initially, it provided only coffee and doughnuts to its customers, hence, justifying its name. But it was long ago. Now the company has spread its chain everywhere in the world, and it has included tons of different dishes in its menu. Here we have collected some of the amazing Dunkin Donuts options that you can try out in the store near you. In addition to their fantastic taste, they are healthy as well, so you do not need to worry about overeating junk.

Oatmeal is the first thing that comes into mind while talking about breakfast, especially a healthy one. Unlike your regular oatmeal, this one is multigrain. And instead of regular sugar, that is not healthy for you, Dunkin Donuts use brown sugar in their oatmeal. If you want to add some twist, you can ask them to add some dried fruits on the top of your cup.
One cup of oatmeal contains five grams of dietary fibers and five grams of protein. So you will get that nutritional boost in just one cup. But if you have any nut allergies, you might want to avoid this because it might contain walnuts, almonds, and pecans.
Reduced-Fat Blueberry Muffin
When people got scared of the frosting of a cupcake, they came up with the concept of muffins. While most people try to keep muffins healthier than cupcakes, Dunkin Donuts wanted to make them as close to cupcakes as possible. So except for frosting, there was everything in their muffins, including the sugar, fat, and calories.
However, a bit time back, the company broke its muffins’ chain and brought the idea of this muffin. So if you are craving for a Dunkin Donut muffin and do not want to stuff in too much fat, then you can try this one out. It contains 25% less fat as compared to the original one.
The name itself appeals to you to go and try this option out at Dunkin Donuts. The best part about these munchkins is that it fulfils your craving of a doughnut, without adding many calories. A single pop of munchkin accounts for around 70 calories. So you can easily have the doughnut fun without that massive regret of putting in junk in your body. However, the calorie count might change with the change in flavor.
Veggie Eggwhite Flatbread
Who minds some eggwhites, bread, and a splash of veggies for their breakfast? If you want to add all these ingredients in your breakfast in just 300 calories, then Dunkin Donuts is the place for you. The option consists of a flatbread, eggwhite patty omelet, green-red bell peppers, green onions, mushrooms and to make it the best, a slice of white cheddar. So you get all the nutritional values in your breakfast while keeping the calorie count low.
When we are talking about breakfast, how can we forget the must-have coffee? Latte Lite is the best espresso option from Dunkin Donuts that you can add to your everyday breakfast. Made up of skim milk, this contains approximately 25% less fat than the original Dunkin Donut latte. That means, for a small cup of Latte Lite, you will be adding less than 100 calories in your diet. And on top of it, you get three options to choose from – Vanilla, Mocha, Caramel.
If you do not want to go much harsh with fat and calories in your breakfast, and still want to enjoy the fun of a bagel, then Dunkin Donut offers you their English Muffin. Here are a few impressive stats of this muffin.
- It has only 140 calories
- It contains 6 grams of dietary fibres
- It includes only half gram of fat
- It also has 4 grams of protein
These stats show that it is 25% healthier as compared to Dunkin Donuts’ regular bagel. So you can enjoy the crispy taste without worrying about your health.
If Dunkin Donuts can not add their legendary doughnuts in their healthy lists, then what are they even working for? It might seem to add the regular doughnuts into the ‘healthy food list’ because of all the sugar and frosting that it contains. However, with this French Cruller, Dunkin Donuts did bring a healthy alternative to their doughnuts. One piece of this includes 10 grams of sugar and 220 calories. Well, that might seem a lot, but if you are craving for a doughnut, then this would be a way better option for you.
Another drink to get you going in the mornings. For the days you do not feel like coffee, this unsweetened iced tea can be your way out to the rest of the day. If you keep the tea plain, the large size of it will contain only ten insignificant calories. But if it is tough for you to gulp down tea without sugar, then you can choose different fruited variants of this iced tea. The interesting fact here is that even the sweetened options have less than 100 calories in them. So you can enjoy your coffee-free days without any regrets.
If a breakfast sandwich is always on your list, then there are no better options to try than Dunkin Donuts’ ham, egg, and cheese sandwich. It comes with an english muffin and incorporates at least 25% fewer fats and calories than the sausage variant. So this is the healthy twist that you might want to give your breakfast sandwich.
Whole Wheat Bagel
You might be shocked to see a bagel on the list of healthy Dunkin Donut foods because usually, bagels are full of everything that you do not want to add in your breakfast. But this one stands out from the usual bagel options of Dunkin Donuts. It contains only 320 calories, 2 grams of fat, and a whole 13 grams of protein. So you would not have to regret eating a bagel.
These were some of the healthy food options you can find at Dunkin Donuts. You can grab any one or multiple of them without worrying about adding many calories or too much fat in your diet.
