These are my kiddos favorite donuts and I am definitely a fan too! I wanted to come up with a re-take on an old classic that didn’t taste weird and that had simple ingredients without relying on the grain free, but super refined and starchy arrowroot powder. This recipe is a culmination of years in the making (literally) and I am so happy with how they have turned out.
Sometimes the kids like to decorate their own with regular sprinkles (yes, the ones with sugar in them), but I still feel really good about giving them these. Unlike all donuts out there, these are indeed sugar-free and won’t put them on a sugar roller coaster. I am not going for perfection here, rather progress and I pick my battles.
The kiddos love having these freshly baked and iced as a surprise when they come home from school and I love having one with a cuppa. You can whip up my sugar-free raw vegan dark chocolate recipe to use for the icing, or skip this step and opt for a store-bought sugar-free (stevia or lo han guo sweetened) vegan chocolate bar (200g) preferably 75-85%. I hope you and your little’s love these as much as we do!
