Vegan Chocolate Donuts Recipe

By Loving It Vegan

🔪Prep Time: 15 minutes

👩‍🍳Cook Time: 15 minutes


For the Donuts:

1 cup All Purpose Flour (125g)

1/4 cup Cocoa Powder (22g) Unsweetened

1/2 cup White Granulated Sugar (100g)

1 tsp Baking Soda

1/4 tsp Salt

3/4 cup Soy Milk (180ml) or other non-dairy milk

2 Tbsp Applesauce

2 Tbsp Coconut Oil

1 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar

1 tsp Vanilla Extract

For the Chocolate Topping:

1 cup Vegan Chocolate Chips (175g) or Chopped Vegan Chocolate

1 tsp Coconut Oil

For Decorating:



1Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).

2Sift the flour and the cocoa powder into a mixing bowl and add the sugar, baking soda and salt.

3Add the soy milk (or other non-dairy milk), applesauce, coconut oil, vinegar and vanilla and whisk with a hand whisk briefly to remove any lumps. Don't overmix.

4Spray two donut trays with non-stick spray and divide the batter evenly among the donut rings. The easiest way to do this is to put the batter into a piping bag and then divide it evenly that way. Or you can use a spoon but it does get a little messy.

5Depending on how high you fill the donut rings you will get 9-12 donuts (we got 12 but filling the donut rings a little more will get you around 9.)

6Bake in the oven for 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into one of the donuts comes out clean.

7Remove from the oven, allow to cool for a few minutes and then transfer them to a wire cooling rack.

8Allow to cool completely before adding the chocolate topping.

9Melt the chocolate by placing it in a microwave safe bowl along with the coconut oil and heating in 30 second intervals, bringing it out to stir every 30 seconds until completely melted. Dip the donuts into the melted chocolate and then place onto a parchment lined baking tray and use a teaspoon to add the sprinkles. When all the donuts are done, move the tray into the fridge briefly for the chocolate topping to set.
