I remember growing up and LOVING sprinkles. I mean really really loving them! I couldn’t eat any form of ice cream (especially my favorite vanilla flavor) without sprinkles.

And I remember the local ice cream truck ice cream with sprinkles was my absolute go-to, always.

Now, although I aim to eat healthy and with more intention, EVER SO OFTEN, I find myself craving a sprinkle donut from Dunkin Donuts. Haha. I’m human, ya’ll. No judgements.

So, this weekend, during one of my craves for my special childhood favorite, I chose to make it, but of course much healthier and completely dairy-free and vegan.

Anyway, this weekend, I whipped these donuts together and they were oh so amazing! Since I love the vanilla flavor, I chose to make the donuts such along with a vanilla frosting and a ton of sprinkles.

This recipe is super easy, quick, BUT the cleanup is a little more since tossing around sprinkles can get pretty messy. Haha.

Not to mention, this makes for a great family moment, especially with little ones, since decorating donuts is such a fun task and it’s opened to a lot of creative thinking.

My little guy definitely loves the moments that I bake, especially with donuts, because he gets a chance to dip them in their frosting and add whatever toppings.

Also, a great simple sweet treat for all the peanut butter lovers is this Vegan Peanut Butter + Pecan Milkshake recipe that is amazingly delicious.

Let’s dig right into this recipe, shall we?

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and spray your donut baking pan (that has 6-wells).

  2. In a medium bowl, sift together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda and sea salt.

  3. In a separate bowl, add the unsweetened coconut milk and apple cider vinegar, whisking together well and letting it sit aside for 2 minutes. Then add the pure cane sugar, coconut oil, and vanilla extract. Finally, stir in the dry ingredients until just well combined.

  4. Spoon the batter into a plastic ziplock bag (or piping bag), cutting the tip and pipping it into prepared donut pan.

  5. Bake donuts for 16-18 minutes or until golden brown and then let them cool for 5 minutes. Lastly, turn them out onto a cooling rack so that they continue to cool completely.

  6. Once cooled, dip in prepared vanilla glaze (see recipes notes for ingredients + instructions), add sprinkles, and Bon Appetite!

    • Hi Brooklyn! They should be around the same time or 5-6 minutes early. I usually use a small toothpick to test the centers! 🙂

  1. I want to try these for my first donut attempt! Do you think these would turn out ok if I swap the AP flour for a gluten-free version?

    • Hi Rebecca! That’s so awesome! Yes, they definitely can be made GF! To make these donuts GF, I recommend using a GF Flour Blend (Bob’s Red Mills has a great version!). **NOTE: When using this GF flour, be sure to reduce the liquid to 1/3 cup and add 1 Tbsp at a time of milk until consistency is met.** I hope that you enjoy them! 🙂

    • Hi Cat! These are best stored in the Refrigerator because of the Chocolate glaze. They usually last up to a week if tightly sealed. I hope that you enjoy!

  2. Ooooh! We’re dairy-free over here so this recipe is perfect for us. We’ll have to try this on our next baking day. Looks so yummy!

    • Thanks so much Kim! Yes, this is great for us too since I try minimize dairy in our diet as well. I do hope that you enjoy!
