In a Large Bowl

In a 2-cup Measuring Cup

  • 1/3 cup coconut palm sugar
  • 1/2 cup plant milk
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar (ACV)
  • 2 tbsp vegan butter

In a Small Bowl



  • Preheat oven to 350 F degrees. Lightly grease donut pan with butter or coconut oil.

Make the batter

  • Stir up the ingredients in the bowl.
  • Stir up the ingredients in the measuring cup.
  • Pour the measuring cup contents into the bowl, and stir until all is combined.
  • Do not over stir or the donuts will be rubbery.
  • Spoon or pipe the batter into the donut rings and bake 10 minutes or until a tooth pick comes out clean.
  • Remove pan and let donuts cool in the pan 2 minutes ONLY. Then tip out the donuts and let them cool more on a rack bottom-side up.

Make the Glaze

  • Melt the chocolate chips and coconut oil in a shallow bowl in a microwave for 60 seconds or hot water bath (use a pyrex measuring cup if melting in a water bath and pour into a bowl to dip donuts).
    Dip each donut to coat with chocolate on one side, and set on parchment or a rack to drip set.
  • I added sprinkles right away so they would stick.
  • Keep them refrigerated and eat within 2 days for best texture.
