Even as a child I loved the flavor of coconut and raspberries together. In fact, I loved it so much it was the cause of my first act of crime.

Crime, I tell you!

There was a coconut raspberry candy at the store. You know the kind I’m talking about? Where it has three different stripes of delicious colors? One is chocolate, one is vanilla and the other is raspberry. Anyway, my mom said no. My head heard that no, but my hands said yes. 😳

The only problem was at the young age of 5, I wasn’t good at covering my tracks. It didn’t take long for my mom to realize what I’d done. And my dad made me go in and apologize to the store manager.

Let’s just say the punishment was very effective. I was so embarrassed.

So, I gave up my life of crime, but still retained my love for all things coconut and raspberry.

If I could have lived on Raspberry Zingers, I would have done it. But, you know, I realized I FELT better when I had a more varied diet.

So now I just make things like these Vegan Coconut Raspberry Donuts and make it part of an overall healthy diet, and it’s all good.

Vegan Coconut Raspberry Donuts

First, if you’re like me, I do NOT miss greasy donuts. Sure, you could fry these babies, but why??? I love the way fried tastes, but HATE the way fried feels. My stomach just can’t handle it.

So, in my mind, the baked donut is the only way to go. And we make this one vegan. Then I added raspberries right in the batter. So, imagine a baked donut infused with raspberries. Yes. I know. It’s so good!

Then, I topped it with a little bit of sweet frosting. With one goal in mind…to make the coconut stick. Ah. That frosting smashed with coconut all over it? It is just a dream.

You might not believe me when I tell you this, but I made a batch of these donuts, and Shawn and I ate a couple fresh out of the oven…and then I froze the rest of them! Yes, I did.

Why? Because I knew I wanted to enjoy them again, but not immediately. I figured if they were out in the open I’d eat them all in a matter of hours. But freezing them was a perfect way of imposing some self-discipline.

If you’re like me and hoping to find ways not to eat the entire batch yourself, these are perfect for sharing. I love making these Vegan Coconut Raspberry Donuts when we have guests over. That way I get one (or two) and share the rest with friends or family. Perfection!

There you have it. Use these ideas or come up with your own to make these Vegan Coconut Raspberry Donuts completely your own way! For sure I would serve these donuts with my favorite Skinny Hot Chocolate. It’s like tea meets cocoa meets delicious.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon ground flax seeds
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • ¼ cup vegan butter
  • cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup vanilla flavored plant-based milk
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • ½ cups raspberries
  • Sweet Glaze
  • ¾ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 1 – 3 teaspoons vanilla flavored plant-based milk*
  • ½ coconut flakes sweetened or unsweetened

Instructions

  • Heat your oven to 350°F. Spray a donut pan with vegetable spray.
  • In a small bowl, combine the ground flax seeds and water. Stir. Set aside.
  • In a separate small microwave-safe bowl, add the vegan butter. Heat in a microwave until melted, around 20 seconds. Set aside.
  • In another bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and nutmeg. Stir to combine.
  • In your mixing bowl, add the sugar, vanilla plant-based milk, apple cider vinegar, flax egg mixture, and melted vegan butter. Stir to combine.
  • Roughly chop the raspberries. You want plenty of raspberry pieces to be present throughout the donuts.
  • Pour flour mixture over the liquid mixture. Drop raspberry pieces over flour and gently stir until the raspberry pieces are coated. Then start incorporating the flour into the liquid mixture. Stir until combined. 
  • Use a spoon to evenly distribute the batter in each donut compartment, filling each to the top. This batter should fill up 6 compartments.
  • Bake 10 to 15 minutes, until the donuts are done and slightly golden colored on the top.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool for a couple of minutes.
  • Make the Sweet Glaze by combining the powdered sugar and coconut oil in a bowl. Stir to combine. It will be a dry mixture. Add the plant-based milk, one teaspoon at a time until you reach the desired, spreadable consistency.
  • Dip each donut in the Sweet Glaze and then immediately coat it with coconut flakes. Serve warm.

    Would applesauce work in place of butter in this recipe? If not, any suggestions? Our household is oil free.
