  • 1 ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup coconut sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 3 tablespoons vegan butter
  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • ¾ cup plant-based milk , vanilla
  • ½ pear , cored and chopped

Vanilla Drizzle


  • Heat your oven to 350°F/180°C. Spray compartments of a regular-size donut pan with vegetable spray.
  • In a bowl, add the flour, coconut sugar, nutmeg, salt, and baking soda, baking powder, and ground ginger. Stir to combine.
  • In a microwaveable bowl, place the vegan butter. Heat for 20 to 30 seconds, until the butter is melted. Add the ground flax seeds, water, and plant-based milk. Stir to combine.
  • Add the chopped pear to the flour mixture and stir until the pear pieces are coated. Then pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and gently fold, stirring until combined.
  • Use a spoon or carefully pour the batter into the donut compartments, filling them generously and equally. Bake for approximately 15 minutes, until the donuts are done and slightly golden on the edges.
  • In the meantime, prepare the glaze by pouring the powdered sugar into a bowl. Add the plant-based milk and stir to combine. Add more powdered sugar or milk to achieve a desired, spreadable consistency.
  • Once the donuts are done, remove them from the oven and cool for several minutes. Once they're cool enough to handle, remove them from the pan and place on a wire rack. Drizzle the top of each donut with icing. Serve warm.


If you don't have coconut sugar handy, brown sugar works here too.
