Donut Batter

  • 1 ½ cups unbleached flour
  • cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ tsp pink salt or sea salt
  • 3 tablespoon aquafaba (chickpea liquid)whipped you can also use 1 egg or egg replacer of your choice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk or milk of your choice
  • ¼ cup melted refined coconut oil
  • teaspoon nutmeg

Cinnamon Sugar Topping

  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • couple pinches nutmeg


Making Donuts

  • Preheat oven to 350
  • Oil the donut pans so they don't stick. I use melted coconut oil and bush it on.
  • Measure out 3 tablespoons of aquafaba and whisk with a fork or whisk for 20-30 seconds or until it looks like the picture in the post. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl whisk together all the dry ingredients.
  • With a wooden spoon mix into the dry ingredients the milk, whipped aquafaba, vanilla extract, and melted coconut oil until you have a smooth batter.
  • With a ladle or big spoon batter into a piping bag or ziplock bag. If you are using a ziplock bag cut the corner off to allow the batter to come out.
  • Fill each donut mold ¾ of the way full. If you fill all 12 the donuts will be a bit smaller, filling 10 will make your donuts bigger. (I linked the donut pans I use in the post.)
  • Bake for 13-15 minutes or until done and slightly brown on the bottom.

Cinnamon Sugar Topping

  • Mix sugar and spices in a small bowl.
  • When donuts come out of the oven and cool slightly, brush the tops of the donuts with melted coconut oil and dip the tops in the cinnamon sugar mix. Set on a plate or cooling rack.
