Easter recipes like roast lamb and hard-boiled dyed eggs are fine, but you can’t beat a little healthy and vegan cuteness at this time of the year, right?
I decided to make these pretty and vegan donuts for the first time, and guess what guys, another gluten free & vegan baking victory. These donuts will be definitely on my Easter table next week, because can you ever really go wrong with donuts?
They’re the perfect treat to celebrate any occasion! Oh, and try *not* to lick your lips after eating one.
They may look pretty fancy to you but trust me they are the simplest to make. 30 minutes was all it took to have the whole batch ready to serve. I topped them with a homemade healthy frosting and sprinkles.
Who doesn’t love a good (vegan) donut?
Will you try making these? If you give them a go, take a pic, devour and post, tagging #bootiesandsmoothies , @booties_and_smoothies
Donut worry, be happy !
Lightly spray the donut pan with pan spray or grease the donut holes with coconut oil.
Preheat the oven to 350°F/175C
Serves: 6 donuts
- All Purpose GF Flour 80 grams
- Salt ¼ tsp
- Baking Soda 1 tsp
- Almond or Soya Milk 60 ml
- Coconut Sugar 40 grams
- Egg replacer 2 tsp ( or 1 egg for non-vegan version)
- Coconut Oil Melted 2 tsp
- Vanilla Extract 1 tsp
FOR THE GLAZE
- 1 cup organic natural powdered sugar
- 4 tsp light coconut or almond milk
- natural food colouring
- Combine egg replacer with hot water and whisk until smooth.
- In a large mixing bowl combine the milk, coconut oil, vanilla extract, brown sugar and egg replacer (or 1 egg) and whisk until smooth.
- Add the flour, salt & baking soda and whisk smooth.
- Pour the batter to a pastry bag and pipe half way to the top into each of the donut holes.
- Bake in a preheated oven for approximately 12-15 min.
- Cool then dip in glaze
For the Glaze
- Once the donuts cool down make the glaze by mixing the organic powdered sugar with the light coconut or almond milk until very smooth. The texture of the glaze should be very thick.
- For the pink glaze add natural pink food coloring (dragon fruit powder).
- For the blue add natural blue food coloring (blue spirulina) until you reach your desired colour.
- For the purple mix both blue and pink together.
- Dip one side of each donut face down into the bowl of frosting then return to the cooling rack. After you dip the last donut, then start all over again with the first one, so we can get a nice and thick glaze. (The sprinkles on top are optional.)
- Leave on the cooling rack until the glaze has set.
