Vegan Oreo Donuts

Vegan Oreo Donuts

Donut meets cookies in this light and fluffy vegan baked donut topped with a creamy coconut yoghurt frosting and crunchy chocolate-y cookies. They are chocolate-y rich and high in protein and easy to make with only 8 ingredients.

If I had to choose between a donut and a cookie, I would probably choose a cookie. But, for this recipe, I didn’t want to make you choose between the two. So, I combined them to make one delicious and dreamy creation. I first made this recipe for My Vega protein whose protein blends are loaded with greens and vitamins for an added boost of nutrition. Not content with leaving the recipe just on social media, I wanted to bring it to my recipe archive so we can all make it whenever that donut-cookie craving hits. If you aren’t a fan of protein powders, you can use extra flour instead (to make the total 200g of flour) and add 1 tsp vanilla essence.

These Vegan Oreo Donuts are really easy to make as all the base ingredients go into one bowl, stir them together and bake in a donut mould. As I’ve mentioned in previous donut recipes (see my Chai Orange and my Tiramisu Chocolate Chip creations) I use a silicone donut mould which still requires you to grease it lightly for the neatest of donuts. Fill the holes and bake for 12-15 minutes – that’s all there is to it. The hardest part of these Vegan Oreo Donuts, as always, is waiting for them to cool!

The creamy coconut frosting is simply coconut yoghurt – you want the thick kind and the thicker the better. I like to use vanilla to compliment the vanilla donut base and to taste more cookie-like. Then comes the crumbled Oreo cookies!! Go as crazy as you like.

I’ve loved serving these Vegan Oreo Donuts to friends and family as they are so simple to whip up and they always go down well. Most Oreo and similar cookies are vegan-friendly but just check the labels to be sure.

These donuts are light and fluffy with a muffin-like texture and smooth yet crunchy topping. They are naturally vegan, healthy, baked and great for your sweet tooth.

If you are looking for more sweet treats, how about my other donuts: Orange Chai and Tiramisu Chocolate Chip or my Double Chocolate Cupcakes with Chocolate Whip and Biscoff Cookie Banana Bread.
