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!


You know that i’d always take muffins and cookies over donuts any time on my recipe.  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.


Vegan donuts are definitely better than regular donuts! Because they don’t contain eggs and dairy products, they are free of cholesterol and saturated fat. Plus, usually you bake homemade vegan donuts and don’t fry them. Therefore, are overall lower in fat.

Some vegan donuts also use black beans or chickpeas as a basis, instead of flour. This way you not only get a super delicious treat but also one that is packed with proteins!

Vegan Donuts with Chocolate Glaze Recipe
These vegan donuts with chocolate glaze and hazelnuts are super delicious, fluffy, and easy to make! Plus they are baked and oil-free. Have some!



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.
