Guuuuuuuuuuuys… I figured it out. The perfect whole wheat/coconut sugar donut. Aka, yes there is still some suga suga in there but it’s as good as it gets for a donut! + they’re completely vegan! Win-win.
I’m so obsessed with these. I made “healthier” ones and I also made the all-purpose flour/granulated sugar kind. Not gonna lie the latter were a lot more fluffy and just to die for but I was so impressed by how the whole wheat ones came out. Seriously delicious and you wouldn’t even know they were whole wheat!
What I love about donuts is that they are so easy to make and don’t take much time. The basics of the recipe doesn’t tend to vary to much which leaves so much room to get creative with all kinds of flavours!
I saw a photo of these on instagram and remembered them one day and thought I would give it a go. Instead of doing a cinnamon glaze like the pumpkin spice ones I posted not too long ago, I decided to put my new almond extract to use! Topped them up with slices almonds and boom. Heaven.
This recipe makes 6 donuts
1 1/4 cup buckwheat flour
1/4 coconut sugar
1 tbsp matcha powder
1.5 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup cashew milk (or any nut milk)
1/4 cup avocado oil (can sub for olive oil or liquid coconut oil)
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tbsp cashew milk (or any nut milk)
1/2 tsp almond extract
- Preheat your oven to 350 F.
- In a bowl mix: buckwheat powder, matcha, salt, baking powder, coconut sugar. In a separate bowl mix: cashew milk, avocado oil + vanilla. Combine both these mixtures together until a wet doughy substance forms.
- Lightly grease your donut pan & spoon in your batter.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes or until donuts spring back a little. Trust me, give them a touch and you’ll get what I mean.
- Remove from oven & let them cool. While this is going on, stir in your glaze ingredients in a bowl. When you’re ready, dip the top of the donut in the glaze and set aside. If you find your glaze too runny you can either add more powdered sugar to compensate or place your donuts in the freezer for a few minutes so the glaze can set.
