OK...My husband and I want to make some filled donuts.  But we don't want "normal" fillings.  We're looking for ideas for some non-traditional, maybe some healthy fillings.  We're thinking PB&J would be good, and we're also considering trying crushed candy bars in a cream filling.  Any other ideas?

How about Nutella?  Its not incredibly healthy, but its made from hazelnuts.

Or apple pie filling?

What would yogurt fillings taste like?  For instance, strawberry yogurt filled donuts?

There are alot of yogurt flavors-even ones with candy bars in them.

you could crush and cook strawberries until they're like ice cream syrup. if you want healthy add water instead of corn syrup and don't add sugar or use Splenda.

heres  my thought..... the  cheesecake or french vanilla flavored pudding made  kinda  think of course  with  any  fruit  chunks  or, crushed butterfingers or  oreos.....
oh my  how  but  fill one  with cream cheese and blueberry pie filling .   or  anything carmel inside.
MY  son said Mom she likes PB&J  I have to  know  her.....  so  you  definately hit a  home run with that idea.   How bout  chocolate  pudding (no  that  would be a  good  use  for  the  nutella  instead) with  minced cashews.   or  banana pudding  with  nutella.   
fill with ice cream!!!

I just saw a show on the Food Network that was about stuffing things. They had a whole segment on donuts. They stuffed them with really unorthodox things like spinich artichoke dip or hummous. Apparently, donuts aren't sweet unless you put the glaze or icing on them. So, you can put pretty much anything thing in them.

good point on the  not being sweet  without the glaze  or  filling....... that is  true!   
If  you are  wanting  not sweet   try

ham and cheese
turkey broccoli cheese
pepperoni and sauce and cheese
chicken and speg sauce and of course cheese
spinach  and artichoke dip
that  Knorrs vegatale dip everyone makes for holidays (made with sour cream).

here is the  food network link.... some  stuff I had  never seen  maybe it  will spark an idea  for  you

A healthy doughnut? Doesn't sound like much fun to me! However, you can make your sugar-free fillings more bulky by adding a bit of water and mixing in some melted gelatin. Even less calories than you'd get otherwise, but I tend to think that frying them in oil pretty much ruins the healthy aspect!

I'd go with the pudding/jam idea. Not healthy, exactly, but less bad than a typical stuffed doughnut. Maybe some pumpkin (or pump mixed in with the pudding [use less milk]) with a bit of sugar sub and spices. That'd be great drizzled with chocolate, too! And sprinkled with walnuts! Oh - so easy to go overboard with a doughnut, eh?!

What about a tiramisu filling?  You could take mascarpone, mix with some coffee and chocolate and pipe that into a donut.
