Vegan Bacon Donuts

Sweet and hearty at the same time? Oh yes! We are huge fans of sweet & hearty dishes. We could never eat only sweet things. And we could never eat only hearty things. By the way: Julia could never end her food feast without eating something hearty. So these Vegan Bacon Donuts are made for us cause they definitely put the sweet-hearty-thing in a nutshell. They are the perfect party food: easy to make, quite filling and a bit confusing. Who would expect the taste of bacon on a basic donut? But in the end, they will all love them, yes it’s true! We guess you already know our recipe for vegan coconut bacon, it’s too easy. What a smoked spectacle!

  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 180 ml (0.75 cup) plant-based milk

  • 1 tbsp maple syrup


  • 0.5 serving of our vegan coconut bacon (recipe on our blog)

  2. For the donuts, mix the milk and apple vinegar in a small bowl. Set aside for 10 minutes.

  4. Now gradually add the wet ingredients and mix again.
