Coconut-Lime Donuts! ♥ [VEGAN]




Introduction: Coconut-Lime Donuts! ♥ [VEGAN]

Hey everyone! Maly here from Maly's Kitchen on YouTube ^_^

It has been quite some time since I posted a recipe! I am back today to share with you a fun, summery treat that's perfect to share with family and friends.

This recipe was adapted from the cookbook, "Chocolate Covered Katie." I absolutely love her recipes and the fact that they are healthier and easy to make! Who doesn't love donuts?

These are Coconut-lime, inspired by the Lemon Doughnuts recipe in the book. They are also vegan, contain much less sugar, and can easily be made gluten free as well.

I will include substitutions for those of you with allergies, because I want everyone to be able to enjoy these delicious treats!

Hope you love them!

P.S. You will never be able to tell these are all!

Let's get started with ingredients ---->


1/2 C NON-DAIRY milk (I used almond!)
2 TSP grated lime zest*
3 TBSP lime juice*
3/4 TSP vanilla extract
2 1/2 TBSP coconut oil (any oil you like works as well!)
1 CUP spelt or all-purpose flour**
1/3 C + 2 TBSP sugar***
1 1/2 TSP baking powder
1/4 TSP salt

*You can use lemons instead of limes if you'd like, or even oranges!
**To make this GF, substitute with your GF flour of choice. If it doesn't already include xanthan gum in it, add 1/2 TSP.
***If you'd like, you can use stevia blend, or any sugar substitute. I used the Stevia blend, and split the amount as it is much sweeter than sugar.

1 C powdered sugar
1-2 TBSP non-dairy milk
1/8 TSP vanilla extract
1/2 TSP lime/lemon zest (optional)

Step 2: Mixing the Wet Ingredients

Add the milk, zest, juice, vanilla, and oil in a measuring cup or small bowl, and whisk until smooth.

Let sit for 5 minutes.

In the meantime, you can prepare the dry ingredients! -->

Step 3: Mixing the Dry Ingredients

Add the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and coconut flakes (if adding) into a medium sized bowl, and whisk until everything is completely combined.


Step 4: Making the Batter

Pour the wet mixture into the dry, and mix together until just combined.

Scoop the batter into a gallon sized ziplock bag, and secure it by lightly twisting the bag. (This is an easy way to get the batter into the pan!)

Step 5: Filling the Pan/baking

Preheat your oven to 375 F

Spray a 6-donut mold baking pan with nonstick cooking spray, or grease with butter/oil.

Cut the end of the ziplock bag (about 1-inch) and pipe batter evenly between the 6 donut holes.

*Even if it looks like there is too much batter in each hole, don't hesitate to save any. This will ensure you get super fluffy donuts, unlike mine, hehe*

Tap the pan lightly on a leveled surface to distribute the batter evenly, then place into your oven and bake for 15-20 minutes.

The donuts will be done when they are lightly browned and a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Cool completely before icing.

Step 6: Making the Icing/decoration

To prepare icing, it's really super simple! Just whisk all the ingredients in a bowl and set aside to decorate your donuts!

To make the toasted coconut, heat a small skillet on medium-high heat, and stir your coconut flakes until they are golden brown and crispy.

Step 7: Finishing the Donuts!

Dip the donuts in the icing, lightly turning them around to remove excess, and place onto a bowl to set.

Top with the toasted coconut, and extra grated lime zest if you'd like.

These are all done and ready to eat!

Hope you liked this recipe!


Enjoy ♥
