I adore this recipe because baked donuts offer all the yummy flavors I love without the excess grease of fried donuts. That makes these donuts the perfect guilt-free pleasure any day of the week.

Rumor has it that Krispy Kreme started this whole Biscoff Donut extravaganza. Well, kudos to them for coming up with the idea. Now, let’s run with it by making it vegan and healthier (thanks to baking the donuts and using whole wheat pastry flour)!

Key Ingredients

Here are the ingredients you’ll need for this recipe, including substitution ideas:

  • Flax Egg: I find the flax egg to be the perfect donut egg substitute. You can also use a chia seed egg.
  • Biscoff Cookies: These iconic cookies add a unique flavor and texture to the donuts. Look for them in the cookie aisle of your grocery store.
  • Whole Wheat Pastry Flour: I like whole wheat pastry flour for its nutrition, but you can substitute all-purpose flour for similar results.
  • Vegan Butter: Opt for a dairy-free alternative available in the baking section.
  • Plant-Based Milk: Choose your favorite variety, such as almond, soy, or even oat-based milk.
  • Vegan Creamer: Coconut milk or vegan half and half work well for a creamy glaze.

Frequently-Asked Questions

Absolutely! Feel free to substitute almond milk with your preferred plant-based milk, such as soy milk, oat milk, or coconut milk.

Yes, you can. Simply replace the all-purpose flour with a gluten-free flour blend. Keep in mind that the texture may vary slightly, so experiment to find the perfect mix for your taste.

Tips for Perfect Vegan Biscoff Donuts

  • Freshness Matters: For the best flavor and texture, enjoy the donuts on the day they are baked. If saving for later, store them in an airtight container at room temperature.
  • Play with Glaze Consistency: Adjust the thickness of the Biscoff glaze to your liking. For a thicker glaze, add more powdered sugar; for a thinner one, increase the amount of plant-based milk.
  • Customize Your Toppings: Elevate your donut game by adding crushed Biscoff cookies, chopped nuts, or a sprinkle of cinnamon on top of the glaze.

Serving Suggestions

  1. Serve your warm Biscoff Donuts with a scoop of vegan vanilla or caramel-flavored ice cream. The warm-cold contrast creates a heavenly combination, and the creamy texture of the ice cream complements the fluffy donuts.
  2. Coffee or Tea: Pair your Biscoff Donuts with a steaming cup of your favorite plant-based coffee or tea. The warmth of the beverage enhances the indulgent experience, making it a perfect morning or afternoon treat.
  3. Dairy-Free Yogurt Parfait: Cut the donut in half, then layer it with dairy-free soy yogurt, granola, and sliced bananas or other fruits. These textures and flavors add a tasty twist to your donut experience.
  4. Chocolate Sauce Drizzle: Drizzle a decadent vegan chocolate sauce on top of the donuts.
  5. Nuts and Seeds: Sprinkle chopped nuts or seeds, such as almonds, pecans, or chia seeds, on top of the donuts. This not only adds a satisfying crunch but also boosts the nutritional profile.

Remember to consider the flavors and textures you enjoy the most, then mix and match to find your favorites!

Storage Tips

Store donuts in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 1 month.

  • 1 flax egg

  • 1 ¼ cups whole wheat pastry flour (substitute all-purpose)
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup vegan butter
  • ½ cup plant-based milk
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

Caramel Glaze

  • 3 tablespoons vegan butter
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vegan creamer (see notes)
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • Optional: Add more biscoff crumbles on the donuts after icing them.


  • Preheat oven to 350°F/175°C and coat a regular-sized donut pan with vegetable spray.
  • Prepare the flax egg and set it aside.
  • Use a rolling pin to crumble the cookies into a fine crumb, but leaving some texture.
  • Add the flour, cookie crumbles ,brown sugar, spice, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Stir to combine.

For the Glaze

  • Remove from heat and allow it to cool for about 5 minutes, then add the powdered sugar and stir to combine. This glaze will thicken as it sits, so be prepared to stir in another tablespoon of cream as needed.

Glazing Donuts

  • Once the donuts are done, remove them from the oven and allow them to cool slightly. Once they're cool enough to handle, and the glaze has cooled enough so it won't burn your fingers, dip the top part of each donut in the caramel icing. Optional: Top donuts with biscoff cookies or crumbles.
