Cinnamon Sugar Vegan Donuts


We love the classic flavor of cinnamon vegan donuts, but you can totally make a non-dairy glaze for these by whisking together 1/4 cup of your favorite non-dairy milk, 2 cups powdered sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract. See also vegan chocolate custard cake recipe.



For the donuts

  • Cooking spray
  • 1 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 2/3 c. unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 c. granulated sugar
  • 1/4 c. melted vegan butter
  • 1 tsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract

For the coating

  • 1 c. granulated sugar
  • 4 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • Pinch kosher salt


  • Preheat oven to 350° and grease a donut pan with cooking spray. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together almond milk, sugar, butter, apple cider vinegar, and vanilla. Pour into dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Transfer batter to a piping bag and pipe into prepared donut pan.
  • Bake until edges are golden and middles are set, 10 minutes. Remove donuts from pan and let cool slightly on a cooling rack.
  • In a medium bowl combine sugar, cinnamon, and a pinch of kosher salt. Gently toss donuts in cinnamon sugar while still warm.
  • Serve cinnamon vegan donuts and rate if you liked the recipe!
