Vegan Cereal Donuts w/ Strawberry Icing

Vegan Cereal Donuts w/ Strawberry Icing | Well and Full | #vegan #recipe

These Vegan Cereal Donuts w/ Strawberry Icing are the perfect healthy, vegan sweet treat! Made with whole food, plant-based ingredients.


This post was created in collaboration with One Degree Organics, a brand I’ve been working with since 2016 and have come to love and trust. All opinions are my own! 


These Vegan Cereal Donuts were inspired by a trip I recently took to a new donut shop in West Hartford, CT with my fiancé. They had a donut there that was made with strawberry icing, with cereal used as sprinkles. I loved the way the crunchy cereal contrasted with the sweet icing and fluffy donut, and I knew I had to recreate something like it at home!

However, my recipe style does not usually involve deep-frying anything or using a lot of unhealthy ingredients. So I knew this would be the perfect recipe to make with the One Degree Organics Sprouted Cacao-O’s. This cereal is made with natural, plant-based ingredients like real cacao and organic oats. It’s also crazy delicious even on its own – I had to yell at my fiancé for trying to eat the box before I could test the recipe LOL!

I love working with One Degree Organics because they are a family-owned business that has so much transparency in what they do. I appreciate what they do because in addition to food blogging, I also work part-time in my dad’s family-owned business. In a world of Amazons and Walmarts, there is so much to be said for small businesses with heart. I love supporting One Degree Organics and working with their high-quality products. I feel proud to have this partnership.

All in all, I hope you love this recipe, made with the best quality ingredients. The donut itself is made with a variation of my banana bread recipe, making a sweet, cake-y donut. It tastes super delicious with the easy strawberry icing, made with real strawberries! I hope you enjoy these donuts!

Vegan Cereal Donuts w/ Strawberry Icing

These Vegan Cereal Donuts w/ Strawberry Icing are the perfect healthy, vegan sweet treat! Made with whole food, plant-based ingredients.

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 6 Donuts

Ingredients

Dry Ingredients

  • 1 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Rolled Oats
  • 1/2 Tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/2 Tsp Baking Powder

Wet Ingredients

  • 1 Cup Mashed Banana
  • 2 Tbs Almond Milk
  • 3 Tbs Coconut Oil melted
  • 1/4 Cup Maple Syrup
  • 1 Tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1/2 Tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/4 Tsp Salt

Icing

  • 1 Cup Powdered Organic Sugar
  • 2 Tsp Almond Milk
  • 1 Large Strawberry

Cereal Sprinkles

  • Handful of One Degree Organics Sprouted Cacao O's

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.

  2. In a mixing bowl, add in the dry ingredients. Mix until incorporated.

  3. In a smaller bowl, add in wet ingredients. Mix until completely incorporated, trying to have as few banana chunks as possible.

  4. Then, fold in the wet ingredients mixture into the dry ingredients. Stir until incorporated completely.

  5. In a 6-count donut pan, add in the batter evenly. Bake donuts in the oven for about 15 minutes.

  6. After donuts are done cooking, take them out of the oven and let them cool COMPLETELY.

  7. Then, make the icing. (You don't want to make the icing too soon or it will harden before the donuts cool.) In a blender or food processor, blend the strawberry and the almond milk until smooth. 

  8. Through a fine mesh sieve, sift through the powdered sugar into a low bowl. (You don't want any clumps!) Then, add in the strawberry milk mixture, until a smooth icing is formed.

  9. Dip the top half of the donuts into the bowl of icing. Then, immediately sprinkle on the chocolate cereal.

  10. Let icing harden for a few minutes, then it's time to eat!

  11. Enjoy!

    Using cereal instead of sprinkles is so fun! I especially love the chocolate and strawberry combo!

    This is such a fun idea! I love One Degree Organics too. We eat their cacao brown rice crisps all the time and they’re so good. I bet the O’s are just as good, especially on these donuts!!
