Vegan Chocolate Glazed Donuts with Sprinkles

If you’re into donuts (or doughnuts…however you spell them), you’ll want to give these Vegan Chocolate Glazed Donuts with Sprinkles a try. Just imagine a crispy on the outside, tender on the inside vegan donut, topped with chocolate and sprinkles. That’s what today’s recipe is all about.

Vegan Chocolate Glazed Donuts with Sprinkles, a perfect start to your weekend mornings, or breakfast any day of the week!

I worked at a place after my first year in college. It was an insurance company. I did highly important things like filing papers. I told you, highly important.

And each Friday, someone would go out to buy donuts. They would return with crispy, creamy, mouthwatering donuts. I had a few of them, but it didn’t take me long to realize that I didn’t like the way they made me feel. I kind of quit eating donuts after that. Something about the combination of the flour and the grease just didn’t sit right with me.

But once I discovered the baked donut? That changed everything!

Why This Recipe is a Winner

  • The addition of nutmeg makes these baked donuts taste like something you’d find in a donut shop — it’s a magical donut ingredient
  • A tested combination of ingredients creates lift and rise in these donuts, making each bite delicious
  • Perfectly balanced to fill a 6-compartment baked donut pan. Double the recipe if you have two pans!

Sprinkles, people! Sprinkles!

Of course there’s more to these Vegan Chocolate Glazed Donuts with Sprinkles than only the sprinkles. You’ve got to have a pretty tasty donut base to make it all work.

Let’s talk about donuts for a moment. Most store-bought donuts are made with eggs and maybe even a little dairy. That’s why when I went vegan I thought I’d eaten my last donut.

A sad thought indeed.

However, once I bought my first baked donut pan, I was hooked on creating vegan baked donuts. In fact, I actually prefer the baked variety now. Forget all those greasy donuts of the past, the baked donut rules!

Also, if you’re not into sprinkles like I am, here are some ideas to garnish your donuts:

  • Serve these donuts plain, with just the chocolate frosting
  • Sprinkle coconut flakes over the top
  • Add chopped peanuts over the top of each donut
  • Chop up some dairy-free chocolate chips and sprinkle over the top
  • How about granola? That might be pretty awesome!

As you can see, there are lots of options for topping your donuts. Options = awesome!

One thing that makes this Vegan Chocolate Glazed Donuts recipe so special is the Silk Dairy-Free Vanilla Yogurt. There’s one very simple reason I like using vanilla vegan yogurt, it makes for a soft and tender donut. I love that part!

    Dairy free donuts?! One of the few dairy products I miss since going lactose free… (and they look really good too!)

      Hi Keith. Yes, dairy-free donuts are, IMHO, even better than the other kind. Hope you like them! 🙂
