Vegan cinnamon donuts with a maple peanut glaze

vegan cinnamon donuts

These “healthified” vegan donuts make a delicious alternative to regular donuts without the refined white sugar, and by baking them rather than deep frying them they also have a lot less fat!

Ingredients
For the donuts
  • 1/2 cup unbleached all purpose flour (or regular white flour)
  • 1/2 cup wholemeal flour
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar (or raw cane sugar)
  • 1.5 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1/2 cup non-dairy milk
  • 2 tbsp flavour-free coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp ground flaxseed
  • 2 tbsp water
For the glaze
  • 2 tsp coconut oil
  • 2 tsp maple syrup
  • 4 tsp peanut flour
  • 1 tsp raw cacao nibs
Servings: mini donuts
Instructions
For the donuts
  1. Preheat the oven to 180˚C and lightly grease a donut pan.
  2. Prepare the flax "egg" by mixing the ground flaxseed with the water and set aside for 10 minutes to allow it to firm up.
  3. In a mixing bowl add the flours, baking powder, sugar and cinnamon and mix together.
  4. In a small saucepan over low heat add the non-dairy milk, apple cider vinegar, apple sauce, vanilla essence and coconut oil and stir until the coconut oil has just melted and everything is mixed together.
  5. Remove the saucepan from the heat and add the contents to the mixing bowl with dry ingredients. Add the flax "egg" to the bowl and mix everything together until combined.
  6. Fill the donut moulds about 3/4 full with the mixture and smooth with your finger to even it out.
  7. Bake for 10-12 minutes until a skewer poked into the donuts comes out clean. Leave to cool on a wire rack.
For the glaze
  1. Place the coconut oil and maple syrup in a small microwave bowl and microwave for around 20 seconds or until they both have melted into a runny liquid.
  2. Mix the peanut flour in with the coconut oil and maple syrup. Drizzle over the cooled donuts and top with a sprinkling of raw cacao nibs.
