Vegan chocolate donuts are an eggless version of my favorite. With nutmeg, vegan butter, brown sugar and more, these are a delicious recipe that’s perfect for a weekend breakfast treat!

Vegan Chocolate Donuts

I have now made donuts a few times, and this recipe I found from “It Doesn’t Taste Like Chicken” was a nice addition. She says the trick is nutmeg, and she was right, these donuts have a hint of nutmeg that mixed with the chocolate frosting is delicious. 

The other trick to get the donuts to look great is to go ahead and invest in a donut pan. I love minimalism, especially when it comes to the amount of baking dishes, but this one I use at least a few times a month to try some donut recipes. You can find a donut pan here. 

Trust me, you really should use one. The dough is a little runny, so shaping it as you might with thicker doughs just will not work.

Instructions
Donuts
  1. Preheat your oven to 350F (180C). Lightly grease a donut baking pan.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together all the dry ingredients.
  3. In a medium bowl mix together all the wet ingredients. Now add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Do not over mix, lumps are totally cool.
  4. Scoop the batter into a large ziplock bag and cut the corner off of the bag. Alternatively, use a pastry bag. Pipe the batter into the donut pan, dividing it evenly among the 6 donuts wells.
  5. Bake for 10 to 14 minutes until the donuts have fluffed up and bottoms are lightly browned. Take out of the oven and cool for 5 minutes then flip the donuts over so the bottoms can steam off a bit and don't hold too much moisture.
Chocolate Glaze
  1. Add all of the ingredients to a bowl and mix well. If the glaze is a bit too thick at 1 teaspoon non-dairy milk at a time to reach desired consistency.
  2. Dip the donuts into the glaze half way up and carefully lift the donut back out again. The frosting will set as it rests. If you have leftover glaze, use it to drizzle over vegan ice cream, or dip fruit into it.
