Decadent Chocolate Vegan Donut Recipe!

Oh, my fellow humans, hold onto your hats.

I may have found the donut recipe – this, of course, is subject to change as soon as I try a new recipe this weekend. I am not a huge chocolate-glazed fan but these… These are thick, moist, and sinful. 

Donuts are all the rage right now (thank the stars) and thankfully there are a lot of recipes floating around. The easiest way I have found to get a good one is of course trial and error. 

This has led to some pretty nasty gooey concoctions and some amazing treats like the ones I am about to share.

I’d like to also note that this has also led to a few extra days a week at the gym 😉

So please enjoy and let me know if you have any recipes to share or comments to make this better!! Happy Baking!

Decadent Chocolate Ganache Vegan Donut


(Makes 6-8 donuts depending on pan size)

  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/2 cup apple sauce
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup milk of choice ( I used unsweetened almond)
  • 3 tbsp canola oil
  • Ganache:
    • 1/4 cup milk of choice
    • 1/4 cup vegan chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350*F and oil donut pan. (I prefer using coconut oil).
  2. Sift all dry ingredients into a medium bowl and combine.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine apple sauce, vanilla, milk and oil.
  4. Add wet to dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
  5. Bake for 12-15min or until the donut pulls away from the edge of the pan slightly. (Donuts should be spring back when touched)
  6. Let donuts cool 5 min and transfer to a cooling rack.
  7. Cool completely before glazing.
  8. Heat milk on the stove until just before boiling and pour over chocolate chips.
  9. Mix until smooth.
  10. Dip cooled donuts in ganache and enjoy!!


Add some extra magic with some star sprinkles!
Will work out for donuts. Because I eat too many….
