My love for donuts runs deep. Like as deep as that Rumi-quoting hemp-shirt-wearing guy you know.

Okay maybe deeper than that.

I freaking love donuts.

Although I like to think that my childhood raging sweet tooth has been tamed as an adult, I definitely prove myself wrong when it comes to donuts. The more decadent the better. Bring on the glazes and the frostings and the sprinkles. Boston cream all the way.

I know I’m not alone here.

I got to daydreaming about donuts the other day (as one does) and decided I wanted to curate a list of the most delicious, decadent, homemade vegan donut recipes out there from some of my favorite food blogs.

Desserts are not strictly necessary for life (though on some days it feels like they are) so they’re one area we can save money on if we still want to eat them (yes we do!).  I am a huge proponent of baking your own treats at home.  You can make an entire batch of donuts for the cost of one or two fancy donuts from a gourmet donut shop. Save money by making donuts!

Let’s talk vegan donuts

Although I’m not vegan myself right now, I was for a time and I have family members who are. When I had my baking business (before my daughter was born) my niche was vegan baking.  All my recipes were vegan so I decided to stick with that for this homemade donut recipe round-up. Don’t think there is anything plain about these vegan donuts! These are just as decadent and fun as their egg and dairy containing cousins.

One last thing: although I do love fried donuts, I wanted to stick with simple for this ultimate vegan donut recipe round-up. These are all baked donut recipes, no fryer needed.

If you want to make one or all of these recipes and you don’t have a donut pan, I highly recommend this one.  It is really durable and professional grade, made in the USA, and its non-stick coating is BPA-free.  You are going to want to make these recipes!

Okay, less talk, more donuts.

I can’t even pick a favorite, they are all too pretty. Must make all the vegan donuts!

Looks good!! Too bad (and fortunately) I'm not very into baking... or I'd be making chocolate donuts over and over again...


Anyway thanks for the share. Who knows I'd finally get into baking one day :p

These look great, thanks for sharing! I recently tried home-made cinnamon buns (not vegan) and they were delicious (maybe too delicious!).
