You're going to love these VEGAN GLAZED CHOCOLATE BAKED DONUTS. They brought me back to my childhood years!

These were my favorite donuts as a child. I'm a fan of anything cake-y and chocolate-y. And, when you cover it in sugar glaze... you have me at your mercy!

These are quite easy to make and will help you satisfy that sweet chocolate craving. Have them as a treat, a snack, or for dinner! No one's judging!!

You will need a donut baking pan for this recipe since these are baked donuts (my favorite!). There are a few substitutions you can make to the ingredients on the recipe which can still work. You could, for example, use cocoa instead of cacao powder. You can sub the butter for unsweetened apple sauce, and perhaps even sub the sugar for coconut sugar. They will all yield a good donut. But, the best results happen with the ingredients I've listed.

So, let’s get baking!



For the donuts:

  • 1 Cup all purpose flour

  • 1/4 Cup cacao powder

  • 1/2 Cup raw cane sugar

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 3/4 Cup non-dairy milk

  • 3 Tbsp melted vegan butter

  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract

For the glaze:

  • 1 1/2 Cups confectioners sugar

  • 1/4 cup non-dairy milk

  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and grease a donut pan with non-stick spray.

  2. In a large bowl, whisk the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder and salt.

  3. Pour the milk, melted butter and vanilla into the bowl with the dry ingredients. Mix until well combined.

  4. Spoon the batter into the donut pan, filling about 3/4 of the way full.

  5. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the donuts look set on top. Let cool for two or three minutes in the pan, then transfer to a wire rack with some parchment paper underneath.

  6. Let the donuts cool completely before dipping in glaze.

  7. Make the glaze by adding the confectioners sugar, milk and vanilla to a medium sized bowl, and stir with a spoon until a smooth glaze is formed.

  8. Once the donuts have cooled completely, dip the entire donut into the glaze carefully, then place back on the rack over parchment paper to set. The glaze will take about 30 minutes to harden completely.

  9. Enjoy!
