Vegan Halloween Monster Donuts Recipe

I’ve decided I don’t have enough Vegan Halloween Recipes. I aim to fix that problem and I’m beginning today with these Vegan Halloween Monster Donuts. Aren’t they too cute! Also, I did make these Vegan Halloween Monster Cookies last year and you could easily dress up my Black Bean Brownies to look good and ghoulish if you wanted.

Vegan Halloween Monster Donuts

I’ve heard this statement a lot lately: Halloween is my favorite holiday.

And it’s caused me to wonder. Do I have a favorite holiday? I kind of want to create a spreadsheet and grade all the holidays to see which one tickles my fancy the most.

I have a tendency to overthink things.

But I have a theory. My favorite holiday is the one that’s just about to happen. What do you think? Does that work?

Why You’ll Love Vegan Halloween Monster Donuts

OK. Now that we’ve agreed that Halloween is our favorite holiday (wink, wink), let’s get on to these Vegan Halloween Monster Donuts. Are they so adorable or what!

I used the recipe for Vegan Googly Eyes from Fork and Beans…last year! And then I froze them…and guess what? They’re still perfectly fine. I talked with Cara about this and she said you don’t even have to freeze them. You can store them in a glass jar and they will be fine.

But I dunno. The idea of a bunch of googly eyes in a glass jar. It kind of freaks me out.

Anyway, I made this recipe using some flavored vegan yogurt. Strawberry to be exact. And then the icing. That was the fun part! I used spinach to make the green frosting and blueberries to make the purple frosting. Then the teeth are simply a couple of cashew pieces.

It’s so easy!

Here are some fun ways to switch up the decorations on these Vegan Halloween Monster Donuts:

  • I actually made some by putting eyes all over the donuts. They didn’t make the cut for the photograph, but they were still really fun.
  • Place vampire fangs in the middle of the donut for an eery look
  • Add a couple of pieces of black licorice to the top to create antennae
  • Also, you could also use orange colored icing!

Oh, you know what I think? These Vegan Halloween Monster Donuts are so much fun, they’re helping me answer the question about my favorite holiday.

So, Halloween, you really are my favorite holiday! 🙂

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon ground flax seeds
  • 5 - 6 tablespoons water
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 5.3 oz container vegan vanilla yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons vegan butter softened
  • Vegan Monster Eyes*
  • Cashew Pieces
Purple Glaze
  • 2 tablespoons blueberries fresh or frozen
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon light corn syrup
  • ¾ cup powdered sugar
Green Glaze
  • 2 tablespoons spinach fresh
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon light corn syrup
  • ¾ cup powdered sugar
  1. Heat oven to 350F. Coat donut pans with vegetable spray..
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and nutmeg. Stir to combine. Set aside.
  3. In another bowl, combine the ground flax seeds and water. Stir. Add the sugar, Silk Yogurt Alternative, and melted vegan butter. Stir to combine.
  4. Pour the yogurt mixture into the flour mixture and stir to combine.
  5. Spoon the batter into prepared donut pans. If you prefer to be super precise, you can use a piping bag to do this.
  6. Bake for 10 minutes, until the donuts are golden brown.
  7. In the meantime, make the purple glaze by combining the blueberries, coconut oil, and corn syrup in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 20 seconds. Stir, and mash the blueberries. You can remove the skins or mash them into fine pieces. Add the powdered sugar and stir to combine. If it's too thick add a teaspoon of plant-based milk. Stir until smooth and creamy.
  8. Make the green glaze by combining the spinach, coconut oil, and corn syrup in a food processor bowl. Pulse to combine. Add the powdered sugar and pulse until a nice consistency is formed.
  9. Dip cooled donuts in the glazes. Top with vegan monster eyes and add cashew pieces for the teeth.
  10. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week.
Recipe Notes

* I made a batch of these Vegan Monster Eyes (recipe from Fork and Beans) and then stored them in a ziplock bag in the freezer and they've kept for quite awhile!
