Baking Healthy Vegan Doughnuts
This recipe is super simple to make, and fun!
To get started, you’ll want to mix together your topping: the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt and vegan butter, with your hands until crumbly.
Place this in the fridge so it can firm up while you prepare the donut batter.
Now mix together your room temperature vegan butter, cane sugar, chia egg, plant milk and vanilla extract until smooth.
Then, sift in the flour, cinnamon, baking powder and salt and mix until just combined. Try not to overmix or else they may loose some of their fluffiness!
Lightly oil your donut pam so they do not stick, and fill them up with batter, leaving just a bit of room on top for when they rise while baking. I found using a piping bag to be the easiest and mess-free way to add the batter!
Take your crumb topping and generously pack onto the top of the donuts, lightly pressing down and sprinkling off the excess around the pan.
Bake for 14-17 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Allow to cool.
Carefully remove the donuts from the pan. You will want to loosen all the edges and then carefully take them out and place them on a cooling rack.
Place the rack over a pan and then you’re ready to make your glaze!
Easy Dairy Free Donut Glaze
Once your donuts are completely cooled, mix together 1/2 cup vegan powdered sugar (here is a list of vegan brands!) and 1 tablespoon of plant milk. Mix well and if you see any clumps, just microwave it for a few seconds and keep stirring.
Drizzle over donuts equally and they’re ready to eat! They will also harden up and make a nice coating when they cool.
These cinnamon-sweet coffee cake donuts are great all year round.
The cinnamon spice makes it great for holidays, but it’s also light enough to enjoy in the summer with some iced coffee or iced tea.
Bake these donuts for friends and family and you’ll be sure to impress with these pretty little desserts!
