These vanilla baked donuts are super simple to whip up. All you need is a couple of mixing bowls, a whisk and a doughnut pan. If you don’t own one, you need to get one ASAP. You can have fresh baked donuts in less than 20 minutes and they are much healthier than the usual fried ones.

Vanilla baked donuts with healthy glaze are perfect for breakfast, brunch, or to take along to any get together. I think they would make a lovely homemade Birthday gift. They are best when eaten the same day but can be covered and stored at room temperature up to 2 days.

    Vanilla Baked Doughnuts with Healthy Glaze

    Ingredients
      

    For the Doughnuts

    • 1 1/4 cups flour I used buckwheat
    • 3/4 cup granulated sugar I used coconut
    • 1/2 tsp baking powder
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1 tsp cinnamon
    • 1 chia egg
    • 2/3 cup coconut oil
    • 1/2 cup milk I used almond
    • 1 tbsp maple syrup

    For the glaze

    • 180 g | 1 cup organic natural powdered sugar
    • 5 teaspoons light coconut milk
    • natural food colouring
    • cacao for the chocolate glaze

    Instructions
     

    • For the doughnuts
    • Heat oven to 350°F/175c
    • Lightly spray a doughnut pan with cooking spray
    • In medium bowl, stir together flour, granulated sugar, baking powder,, cinnamon
    • In a separate bowl beat chia egg, oil, milk, maple syrup, and with a whisk.
    • Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients; fold until just combined.
    • Transfer mixture to the doughnut pan filling about half full.
    • Bake on centre oven rack 10 to 12 minutes or until doughnuts are golden around edges and spring back when touched.
    • Remove from oven, repeat with remaining batter
    • Four the glaze
    • When the doughnuts are cool make the glaze by mixing the powdered sugar with the light coconut milk until very smooth.
    • Do not add too much liquid. You need the glaze to be very thick but pourable.
    • If you want a white glaze you can ignore the next steps
    • For the pink glaze add a drop at a time of natural pink food colouring until you get a baby pink colour
    • For the cacao add around 1/2 tsp until you reach your desired colour
    • Dip the nicely rounded side of each donut face down into the bowl of glaze then return to the cooling rack. After dipping the last donut, start again with the first. We want to double dip them to get a nice thick glaze.
    • Leave on the cooling rack until the glaze has set.

I tried these this week on a rainy day and they turned out very tasty! I made a few swaps to the original recipe and they still turned out yummy. I swapped out the flour for 1 cup sorghum flour + 1/4 cup tapioca starch for the buckwheat flour since I didn't have any on hand. I also replaced the chia egg with a flax egg. My whole family really enjoyed these - thank you for sharing this recipe!

These are so cute! I have been vegan for over a year now and haven't had a doughnut since. I'll definitely have to give these a try! Thanks for sharing!
