Hello dear bakers! Let’s make these Vegan Coffee Donuts today! Also, I have included a video on exactly how to make these super easy vegan donuts!
These Vegan Coffee Donuts are exactly what my dreams are made of. They involve coffee, chocolate, and caramelized nuts. Plus, they are super easy to make! And vegan!
You know my obsession with vegan desserts is real! Vegan dessert recipes is the largest category on my blog, with over 55 recipes at the moment (as of august/2019). And growing!
And that’s because I love baking vegan! It makes my heart happy!
I am a full believer in doing what makes your heart sing!
What makes you happy?
Other things that make me happy: doing yoga, running, playing with my son, photographing, going for nature walks with my husband and son, talking to my sisters, helping people out.
Since I have posted a video with full instructions for this recipe, I decided to make this a post about things that aren’t very related to the recipe for these vegan donuts. The instructions below are pretty detailed, and the video here on this page will show you everything you need to know in order to make these Vegan Coffee Donuts.
So in today’s post, I will be talking about another thing that makes my heart sing. For 18 months now I have been invested in personal development, spiritual growth, in healing from depression, becoming my best-self, and expanding my consciousness.
And I have found, in this journey, that one of the best things I can do in order to expand my consciousness, is to do things that make me happy.
By doing what makes us happy, we actually make the world a better place. Might sound kind of selfish at first glance, to say something like: take care of yourself first, and do what makes you happy before you think about anybody else.
But in all reality, when you do what makes you fulfilled, you are able to show up for others in a positive way. It’s basically like what the flight attendants tell us at the beginning of a flight: first make sure you have your oxygen mask on before you can tend to anybody else.
I am going to quote one of my favorite teachers here, Abraham-Hicks:
“The best thing you could do for anyone that you love, is be happy! If it is your dominant intent to hold yourself in a vibrational harmony with who you really are, you could never offer any action that would cause anybody else to be unhappy.”
So I hope you are doing something that makes you truly happy everyday, take care of yourself, establish routines that involve self-care, even if you think that these routines will take time away from those you love. For example, for the longest time I’d argue I couldn’t work out, or take time to meditate, because that would take time away from being with my son.
But it turns out I am a much better person when I do those things. So if I wake up earlier, work out and meditate before my son wakes up, or if I take an hour in the morning to go do those things even when my son is up, I am able to function with such high energy and presence, which really affects my relationship with my son, and everyone around me, in a very positive way, throughout the entire day.
The best gift you can give to the world is to do the things you love, because that puts you in alignment with your best self, with the truth of who you really are, and the reason why you even came to this world in the first place.
I truly believe we came here to be creators of a beautiful reality, and we are always only one decision away from taking that power into our hands and manifesting that reality.

Vegan Coffee Donuts
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon coffee or water
- 3/4 cup chopped nuts I used hazelnuts and macadamias
- 1 cup almond milk or any other non-dairy milk
- 1/4 cup brewed coffee
- 1/4 cup avocado oil or any other vegetable neutral oil
- 3 tablespoons lemon juice or apple cider vinegar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup cane sugar
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 3 cups powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon maple syrup
- 4-5 tablespoons coffee
Place brown sugar and coffee (or watein a small saucepan, over medium heat. Bring mixture to a boil and reduce heat.
Once sugar melts, let the mixture gently simmer for about 1 minute, until it gets thick.
Add nuts. Stir to combine.
Remove from the heat and pour nuts over a piece of parchment paper or silicon mat, spread them out to let them cool. About 5 minutes after, gently break them down with your hands.
Pre-heat oven at 350 F. Grease donut pans. I made regular size donuts, about 3 inches each, and this recipe yielded 16 donuts. The amount of donuts you will obtain will depend on the size of the pan you are using.
Mix almond milk, coffee, avocado oil, lemon juice, and vanilla together in a bowl.
Add cane sugar, whisk to combine.
Sift flour, cocoa powder, salt, and baking soda. Add to the wet ingredients mixture.
Whisk until smooth.
Put mixture in a piping bag, cut a hole at the end, pipe in greased donut trays.
Bake in pre-heated oven for 10-12 minutes.
Donuts are ready when they are puffed up. Touch the top of a donut gently with your finger. If it springs back, means it’s ready, if your finger sinks right in, you have to bake for a couple more minutes.
Remove from the oven and let donuts cool down.
Sift powdered sugar in a bowl.
Add maple syrup and coffee.
Whisk to combine.
Dunk each donut in the glaze, then top with caramelized nuts.
Let donuts sit for 10-20 minutes for the glaze to set.
Donuts will last for a couple days, in the fridge, covered.
