Total Time 8 minutes
Yield 6 vegan donuts (or 20 mini donuts)


  • 1/4 cup milk of choice
  • 1 tsp white or cider vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 3 1/2 tbsp oil, nut butter, or applesauce or mashed banana for fat-free
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup or agave (here's a sugar free donut recipe)
  • 1 cup flour, loosely packed
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • optional pinch cardamom


  • Whisk together first 5 ingredients. Grease a donut pan or mini muffin pan. Preheat oven to 350 F. Add all remaining ingredients to a large bowl. Once oven is preheated, stir wet into dry until evenly mixed (don’t overmix). Bake on the center rack 8 minutes or until donuts have risen and are cooked through. Let sit 5 minutes before removing from the pan. Vegan frosting recipes are included above in this post.

The vegan donut recipe works with white, all purpose, spelt, oat, or bob’s gf all purpose flour. I have not tried it with almond flour, coconut flour, or whole wheat flour, so feel free to experiment with other options at your own risk.
