Dry ingredients - medium bowl

Wet ingredients - large bowl

  • 3/4 cup plant milk
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp cold coffee
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla paste

Chocolate Glaze

Useful Equipment

  • Donut pan - 6 wells



  • Rub oil faintly on inside of donut wells. Don't leave residue or your donuts might be oily.
    Preheat oven to 400 F

Make donuts

  • Mix dry ingredients together in the medium bowl.
    Mix wet ingredients together in a larger bowl.
  • Pour the dry mixture into the wet, and either mix by hand or blend a few moments with a hand blender. Don't over mix or your donuts will be chewy.
  • Use a piping bag to pipe the batter into each well. I fill the wells to the top since these baked donuts don't rise much.
  • Bake for 10 minutes or until a tester comes clean. Check at 9 minutes. Let them cool 2 minutes before removing them from the pan and setting each on a cooling rack.
  • Let the donuts cool on a rack while you make the glaze.

Make the glaze

  • Melt the chips and oil in a shallow bowl in the microwave at 60 seconds. Stir until all chips are melted.
    Dip one side of each donut into the chocolate glaze and set to dry on the cooling rack. If you intend to add toppings such as sprinkles or crushed nuts, do so now.
