10 Best Vegan Doughnut Recipes For Your Kids

Everything should have a fall flavour now! We can't get enough fall flavours, from cinnamon to maple, pumpkin, chai, apple, gingerbread, and beyond. We especially adore them when they take the form of vegan doughnuts, one of our all-time favorite sweets.

Fortunately, November 5 is National Doughnut Day, making it the ideal time to make some vegan homemade doughnuts.

We offer the perfect fall doughnut to dunk in your dairy-free pumpkin spice coffee, no matter which flavour you're craving. So we located some of our vegan homemade doughnuts with a fall theme.

Pumpkin Spice Doughnuts With Maple Glaze

1. Pumpkin Spice Doughnuts With Maple Glaze

This one is a festive vegan doughnut recipe perfect for a fall morning. It is a less unhealthy version of a popular fried fall dish.

Prep time: 20 minutes | Cook time: 40 minutes | Total time: 60 minutes | Servings: 12

Ingredients For The Doughnuts

  • Whole wheat pastry flour: 1¾ cups
  • Ground cinnamon: 1 teaspoon
  • Pumpkin spice: 1 teaspoon
  • Baking powder: 1 tablespoon
  • Baking soda: ½ teaspoon
  • Salt: ¼ teaspoons
  • Pumpkin purée: ⅓ cup
  • Applesauce: ½ cup
  • Brown sugar: ½ cup
  • Melted vegan butter: 2 tablespoons
  • Unsweetened almond milk: ¾ cup

Ingredients For The Glaze

  • Powdered sugar: 1 cup
  • Maple syrup: 2 tablespoon
  • Almond butter: 1 tablespoon
  • Unsweetened almond milk: 2-3 tablespoons
  • Ground cinnamon: ¼ teaspoons
  • Toasted walnuts: ¼ cup, finely chopped


  1. Set the oven to 350°F and use vegan butter to oil a doughnut pan.
  2. In a medium basin, combine the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and pumpkin spice. Set apart.
  3. Mix the pumpkin puree, applesauce, brown sugar, vegan butter, and almond milk in a separate, big basin. Using a rubber spatula, combine the flour mixture and wet ingredients.
  4. Bake the batter for 10 to 12 minutes in the doughnut pan. Remove the donuts from the pan and set them on a cooling rack once they have finished baking.
  5. While the donuts are cooling, combine the powdered sugar, maple syrup, almond butter, unsweetened almond milk, and ground cinnamon to make the glaze. Glaze the donuts after cooling, then top them with toasted walnuts.

Spiced Apple Doughnuts With Apple Cider Glaze

2. Spiced Apple Doughnuts With Apple Cider Glaze

These pastries perfectly encapsulate fall. Spices and hot apple cider? More autumnal than that! After going apple picking, enjoy doughnuts and a cup of warm apple cider before jumping in a big pile of leaves to feel fall fully.

Prep time: 30 minutes | Cook time: 45 minutes | Total time: 1¼ hours | Servings: 8

Dry Ingredients

  • Gluten-free oat flour: 1 cup
  • Ground golden flax seeds: 3 tablespoons
  • Cinnamon: 1½ teaspoons
  • Ground nutmeg: ¼ teaspoon
  • Ground ginger: ¼ teaspoon
  • Baking powder: 1 teaspoon
  • Baking soda: ½ teaspoon
  • Sea salt: 1 pinch
  • Allspice: 1 dash

Wet Ingredients

  • Unsweetened applesauce: ⅓ cup
  • Almond milk: ⅓ cup
  • Medjool dates: 4
  • Almond butter: 2 tablespoons
  • Vanilla: 1 teaspoon
  • Maple syrup: 1 tablespoon

Ingredients For The Apple Cider Glaze

  • Apple cider: 2 cups
  • Ginger: 1 dash
  • Nutmeg: 1 dash
  • Cinnamon: 1 dash
  • Powdered coconut sugar (optional)


  1. Heat the oven to 325°F. Grease a donut pan using coconut or avocado oil.
  2. A whisk and a large bowl, thoroughly combine the dry ingredients and break up any clumps.
  3. Blend on high until completely smooth after adding all wet components to your blender. Use a wooden spoon to combine the liquid elements with the dry ingredients. If the batter looks too dry, add a tablespoon of almond milk. They must be thick, moist, and sticky without any dry clumps.
  4. After levelling the tops, fill the doughnut pan ⅔ to ¼ full. Don't forget; they will ascend.
  5. As you smooth the batter, keep a dish of warm water nearby for your fingers to dip into to prevent sticking.
  6. Bake them for about 15-18 minutes at 325°F. They'll feel sturdy to the touch and have a light golden hue.
  7. Allow them to cool completely in the pan for at least 10 to 15 minutes before removing them from the pan.
  8. Bring the apple cider and spices to a low boil in a small pot for the glaze. Once the cider has decreased by more than half, simmer it for 20 to 30 minutes.
  9. Observe cooling. If you want a more conventional glaze, mix a tablespoon or two powdered sugar with the reduced cider. As it cools, it will thicken.
  10. Alternatively, you could coat the donuts in coconut sugar powder and then top them with more cinnamon.

Coconut Maple Bacon Doughnuts

3. Coconut Maple Bacon Doughnuts

This recipe combines two gourmet favourites: sweet, fluffy doughnuts and smoky maple coconut bacon! The bacon marries thick coconut flakes in a mixture of soy sauce, liquid smoke, and maple syrup.

The doughnut is a guilt-free cake form of a donut, so no frying is required. Mix the two with a dash of vegan fondant maple icing, and you will get a deliciously healthy doughnut.

Prep time: 20 minutes | Cook time: 40 minutes | Total time: 60 minutes | Servings: 18

Ingredients For The Coconut Bacon

  • Coconut flakes: 3 cups
  • Soy sauce: 3 tablespoons
  • Liquid smoke: 2½ tablespoons
  • Maple syrup: 2 tablespoons

Ingredients For The Doughnuts

  • All-purpose flour: 1¼ cup
  • Salt: ¼ teaspoon
  • Baking soda: 1 teaspoon
  • Almond milk: ½ cup
  • Brown sugar: ⅓ cup
  • Ground flax seed: 1 tablespoon
  • Hot water: 3 tablespoons
  • Coconut oil: 4 teaspoons, melted
  • Vanilla extract: 1 teaspoon

Ingredients For The Fondant Icing

  • Confectioner's sugar: 1 cup
  • Water: 1-3 tablespoons


  1. In a big bowl, combine all the ingredients, distributing and coating them well.
  2. Layer onto a sheet pan and bake in a 325°F oven for about 10 to 20 minutes, checking and turning to ensure that everything bakes evenly.
  3. Mix the hot water and the ground flax seed. Set it aside until it is paste-like (about 10 minutes).
  4. Blend the almond milk, melted coconut oil, vanilla extract, brown sugar, flax egg, and salt in a sizable mixing basin.
  5. Smoothly mix in the sifted flour and baking soda.
  6. Fill each cavity of a small or regular-sized doughnut mould pan with batter by spooning it into a pastry bag and filling it halfway.
  7. For the minis, bake for 8–12 minutes in a 325°F oven; for the bigger ones, bake for 22–24 minutes. When they softly spring back, the process is complete.
  8. The doughnuts should cool. Then, add the maple extract or 1 cup of confectioners sugar and 1-3 tablespoons water to the cube fondant to achieve the correct consistency.
  9. Dip in icing glaze before coating with bacon-like, crunchy coconut.

Prep time: 10 minutes | Cook time: 20 minutes | Total time: 30 minutes | Serving: 5


  • Whole wheat flour: 1 cup
