Vegan Cinnamon Sugar Donuts

Donuts close up on marble with cinnamon sugar with apples

Donuts! I know apples aren’t exactly in season, but I love them. And I love donuts. So hence some apple inspired donuts….Baked… because healthy-ish. 

This recipe uses whole wheat pastry flour. You can also substitute all purpose flour. Give them a try!

Print Recipe
Serves: 24 mini + 12 large Cooking Time: 8-10 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour or all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 cups apple cider
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup apple sauce
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • Cinnamon Sugar Topping
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup sugar

Instructions

1

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Grease donut pans with coconut oil.

2

In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.

3

In another bowl, mix the wet ingredients. Add the wet to the dry and mix until just combined.

4

Use a piping bag or a plastic bag with the edge snipped to pipe the batter into the donut wells (fill about half way- they will rise quite a bit!).

5

Bake for 7-10 minutes (depending on the size of the donut pan). The donuts should be spongy and a toothpick inserted in should come out clean.

6

Let cool for a few minutes before removing from pans and cooling on wire rack.

7

Mix cinnamon sugar topping together in a small bowl. Brush the donuts with a small amount of oil, or spray with cooking spray. Toss the donuts in the cinnamon sugar until coated.

8

Store at room temperature.

Notes

* I reduced the apple cider down from 2 cups (boiled it for about 5 to 10 minutes) to concentrate the flavour, but you could also just use straight apple cider without reducing it. * These can also be baked in a muffin pan! Bake for 15-18 min for regular sized muffins.
