4 Recipes for Healthy Vegan Donuts
Welcome to my donut shop! These donut recipes are baked, not fried, so there is minimal oil. They are also so easy – much easier than those deep fried. All you need is a mixing bowl, and a donut pan.
You can actually bake the donuts in muffin liner if you don’t have a donut pan, but I highly recommend you buy one. You can even make no bake frozen desserts in it, so it is worth the investment. Find my favorite in my equipment store on my Amazon page.
And I recommend you pipe the batter into the donut pan wells with batter in a gallon ziplock bag with the corner cut off or a large round frosting tip inserted.
Why is it Better to Bake Rather Than Fry Donuts?
Donuts that are baked have less oil than fried donuts.
And in my baked donut recipes, I keep the sugar low and use organic cane sugar which ensures a cakey texture. For chocolate donuts, I use nutritious-rich cacao powder. For the plain, I use chickpeas. And for toppings, date sugar, icing or a frosting made from quality dark chocolate chips, melted with a little coconut oil to help shine.!
Questions Answered About Baked Donuts
1. Do they store?
Yes, feel free to store them unfrosted 3-4 days in a sealed container in the refrigerator, or freeze them covered for 3 months.
2. Can White Beans be Used in the Chickpea Donuts?
Yes, I believe so.
3. Do Donuts Have to Be Frosting?
No, eat plain or dust with cinnamon or sugar. Your call!
