Vegan Donuts with Chocolate Glaze

These vegan donuts with chocolate glaze and hazelnuts are pure decadence! But they are baked, therefore, super fluffy and oil-free! Have some of these goodies!

Actually I’ve never been a big donut fan before I turned vegan. I’d always take muffins and cookies over donuts any time. Mostly because I don’t like that a lot of them are super sweet. But now that I tried so many new things in the last couple of months, I thought what the heck why not just give vegan donuts a try. So I ended up with these delicious donuts with chocolate glaze and hazelnuts.


Ingredients:


  • 1 15 oz can kidney beans
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 3.5 oz package vegan dark chocolate
  • 4 tablespoons hazelnut brittle You can also sub it with chopped hazelnuts, or use sugar sprinkles or coconut flakes instead

Instructions:


  1. Rinse and drain the kidney beans. Place them into a blender together with the brown sugar, almond milk, and cacao and blend until the mixture is smooth.
  2. Then transfer it to a medium bowl and stir in the whole-wheat flour, the baking powder, and vanilla. Spray the donut pan with cooking spray or grease it with vegan butter such as Earth Balance.
  3. Either use a spoon to fill each donut or fill the batter into a Ziploc bag and cut off one edge.
  4. Preheat the oven to 350 °F and bake the vegan chocolate hazelnut donuts for 9-11 minutes. Allow to cool down in the pan for a couple of minutes, then move them to a cooling rack.
  5. In the meantime, make the chocolate glaze. Melt a 3.5-ounce package vegan dark chocolate either by using a microwave or place the chocolate into a heatproof bowl and place it over a pan of barely simmering water. Once melted, cover the donuts with the chocolate and sprinkle with hazelnut brittle.
